Wish To Go Back in Time?

(Jeremiah 9:23-24) “This is what the LORD says: “The wise man is not to boast in his wisdom; the strong man is not to boast in his strength; and the rich man is not to boast in his riches.
Rather, let the one who boasts, boast in this: that he understands and knows me, for I am the LORD who acts with gracious love, justice, and righteousness in the land. I delight in these things,” declares the LORD.”

(James 3:17) “However, the wisdom that comes from above is first of all pure, then peace-loving, gentle, willing to yield, full of compassion and good deeds, and without a trace of partiality or hypocrisy.”

(James 1:5) “Now if any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives to everyone generously without a rebuke, and it will be given to him.”

 

 


If I could go back in time about 10 or 20 years knowing what I know now about life, I would have avoided a lot of unnecessary struggle and pain. There are so many things I would have done so differently regarding my choices in relationships or careers, and there would probably be an overall change of the priorities in my life. I bet you feel the same.

Maybe that one night of tragedy could have been avoided that defines a before and an after in your life? Or you could change that one action that has given you such a bad reputation and separated you from loved ones. The most important change I would make is to make sure I surrender to Christ wholeheartedly earlier in my life and with more passion.

The main difference between then and now is the amount of knowledge and wisdom you have about yourself and the ones around you? You would have known how to eat and exercise to avoid the aches and pains you feel now. You would have known where to invest financially in order to have a successful future. You would have known what things to avoid that led to your broken marriage, and what led your children down the wrong path. These are some of the things we wish we knew beforehand with so much regret.

And do you know that God already knew all the things that have taken you 20 years to discover? He knows all things, yes, and it’s all in the Bible, and whatever is not, the Holy Spirit is willing to reveal it to you. Don’t be a fool and wait another 20 years before asking God for wisdom for today, even if you think you are doing ok. This is exactly the mistake you have made over and over for many years, thinking that your wisdom is enough and that you will be fine without Jesus in your life.

God makes it very clear, that if you acknowledge that you need wisdom, ask, and He will make sure you get it. He is so powerful that He can use even your disastrous past to your benefit right now. Try Him and watch things turn around.

(“Note 3 things about wisdom: First, It comes from above; second, you have to ask for it, third, it comes daily. Have you asked God for His wisdom today? The biggest mistakes I’ve ever made had one thing in common: They were mine, not His!”- Bob Gass)

 

No matter how much you know in life, God knows better and cares more about your future than you ever will.
