Filled With Courage and Understanding

I do this in order that they may be filled with courage and may be drawn together in love, and so have the full wealth of assurance which true understanding brings. In this way they will know God’s secret, which is Christ himself. He is the key that opens all the hidden treasures of God’s wisdom and knowledge. Colossians 2:2-3 GNB

There are poverty-stricken fantasies peddled around which demote Christ. But Christ is the fullness of God, mighty and matchless, set majestically high against all the inferiorities offered by these fantasies. Whatever superiorities men may flaunt and fashion they are unable to redeem humans from sin-ravaged living or remove the inbuilt sin problem.

We may chose to follow notions which portray all sorts of escape routes from our addictions and compulsions but they lead nowhere. God does not force any of us to follow Him. He invites us to ‘turn our wills and our lives’ over to Him. Jesus Christ is the ‘WAY’ ‘In Him alone’ says scripture we find ‘ALL’ that we are looking for.

What The Bible Says

Psalms 25:14 Friendship with God is reserved for those who reverence him. With them alone he shares the secrets of his promises.

Psalms 91:1  We live within the shadow of the Almighty, sheltered by the God who is above all gods.

Daniel 2:22  He reveals things that are deep and secret; he knows what is hidden in darkness, and he himself is surrounded by light.

Matthew 13:35  This fulfilled what God had spoken through the prophet: “I will speak to you in parables. I will explain things hidden since the creation of the world.”
