Begin Again Every Day – Daily Wisdom
Welcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps! Wisdom is the final frontier in gaining true knowledge. Our mission is to create a legacy of wisdom, seek out discernment and insights, and boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before.
Hello, my friend; this is Gramps. Thanks for coming along on our journey to increase wisdom and create a living legacy. Today is Day 1555 of our trek, and it’s time for another snippet of wisdom, which includes an inspirational quote along with some wise words from Gramps for today’s trek. If you apply the words you hear today, over time, it will help you become healthy, wealthy, and wise as you continue your daily trek of life. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget.
Today’s quote is from C. S. Lewis, and it is, “Relying on God has to begin all over again every day as if nothing had yet been done.”
Begin Again Every Day
Our reliance on God is so fleeting. Some days when we have nowhere else to turn, we are forced to turn to God and rely on Him. On other days, we feel so self-reliant that we dismiss God entirely from our lives. In our hearts, we think that we are self-made when, in reality, we must come to the recognition that each breath that we take is a gift from God.
Just like God’s mercies to us are afresh each day, so must our reliance on God be. As we rise each day, we must acknowledge that in view of eternity, our life is like the morning fog; it’s here a little while, then it’s gone. Until we have that type of mindset and reliance on God, we will continually struggle with each day of life with its ebbs and flows like the ocean tide. So let us today and every day, rely solely on God, who by His divine power has given us everything we need for living a godly life.
By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence. And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires.
In view of all this, make every effort to respond to God’s promises. Supplement your faith with a generous provision of moral excellence, and moral excellence with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with patient endurance, and patient endurance with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love for everyone.
The more you grow like this, the more productive and useful you will be in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But those who fail to develop in this way are shortsighted or blind, forgetting that they have been cleansed from their old sins.
As you ponder this nugget of wisdom for yourself, please encourage your friends and family to join us and then come along tomorrow for another day of our Wisdom-Trek, Creating a Legacy.
