Wisdom in Inquiry

Wisdom in Inquiry

Apostle Grace Lubega

John 21:20-22 (KJV); Then Peter, turning about, seeth the disciple whom Jesus loved following; which also leaned on his breast at supper, and said, Lord, which is he that betrayeth thee? Peter seeing him saith to Jesus, Lord, and what shall this man do? Jesus saith unto him, If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? Follow thou me.

There are things in this life of the gospel that God does not expect us to inquire about, not because they are wrong in themselves but because they are not important for your purpose and course in life.

Understand that even though the scriptures speak of inquiring in the temple of God( Psalms 27:4), there are questions that are in the perfect will of God for your life and questions that are not.

Like the Apostle Paul says, there are things in the scriptures that are lawful yet do not edify (1 Corinthians 10:23). This was not with respect to actions only, but even the questions with which we go to the presence of God.

Christ made this point when in our theme scripture He asked Peter, “If he will tarry till I come, what is that to thee?”

The message in Christ’s question is to the effect that each one of us should be more mindful of our own course, race and fight. That should be your priority.

Like Paul at the end of his days, you should be able to say, “...I have finished my course...” (2 Timothy 4:7).

It is eternal life to know God and his son Jesus(John 17:3); eternity is worth investing in.

But that life is too precious for you to invest in it without a certain wisdom.

The absence of wisdom lies in the fact that there are certain things we might inquire of the Lord out of curiosity although they are not expedient for the life of the Christian.

Let your place of inquiry in His temple be defined by the things that align you to purpose and destiny.

FURTHER STUDY: 1 Corinthians 10:23, 2 Timothy 4:7

Let your place of inquiry in His temple be defined by the things that align you to purpose and destiny.

PRAYER: Father, I thank you for this precious knowledge that gives me direction on how to inquire in your presence. I seek you for that which places me in the center of your perfect will. I know that by this wisdom, I will finish well. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
