The Wisdom of God

I recently was incredibly blessed to have the opportunity to attend the 2013 Ekklesia Conference. It was held at Grace Immanuel Bible Church in Jupiter, FL, where such gifted and passionate speakers as Jon Anderson, Jesse Johnson, Smedley Yates, Matthew Waymeyer, Rick Holland, and Jerry Wragg mightily brought the truth of God’s Word to light. The topic was the wisdom of God…

Needless to say, these men were certainly empowered by God to accomplish the work that He had ordained for them to do over that incredible weekend. Not only did they speak the truth with passion and conviction, but the words that they spoke could only have come from diligent studying and right dividing of Scripture. Even as God gave them understanding within each passage of Scripture, so were they able to share that understanding with those gathered to hear the teaching.

Not only this, but this wonderful, Spirit-filled instruction from God’s Word was accompanied by joyous sessions of worship to the Lord. With piano and strings and brass and voice, the Grace Immanuel worship team fervently lead the congregation in awestruck worship of our God, lifting up His name in song and praising Him for His awesome character. As one body, in one spirit, with one mind and with one voice, the congregation was able to glorify the Savior, together praising His holy, awesome name and His extravagant, perfect wisdom.

Words cannot describe how the Lord blessed me during that weekend. I really can’t articulate the joy that I felt while I sang to the Lord and listened to His Word preached. I felt like I was literally hanging on every word of truth, during both the worship and the teaching. Although, I can’t possibly share with you all the fullness of joy that overflowed that weekend, I’m hoping to at least give you a glimpse. Both the songs below were one’s that the congregation sang during the conference, and both speak beautifully to the majesty of God’s great wisdom. I can only hope that, as each of you scan the words to each song, you will be just as encouraged as I was while I was singing them at the Ekklesia Conference…

~ Wisdom of God ~

Your ways are not our ways, Lord
Your thoughts are not our thoughts
For how unsearchable, unknowable
Is the wisdom of our God

Wisdom of God, mystery hidden for ages
Long foretold; saints of old desired to know
The plans of God: hidden from the wise, revealed to us
That He might bring to naught the wisdom of the world

Wisdom of God, setting His spirit upon us
Speaking light into the darkness of our hearts
The love of God: Jesus is made the wisdom for us
That calls a rebel to the feast of eternal life

Wisdom of God, shown through the church to a watching world
Heavenly powers stand in awe at His decrees
The church of God, seeking the wisdom from above
Until the day when all our faith will turn to sight

When we’ll sing, “Blessing and honor and glory and power
And wisdom to our God
And unto the Lamb who sits upon the throne”
For crying and sorrow and sinning and death
Will all be passed away
And we shall know the wisdom of God, even as we are known

~ The Perfect Wisdom of Our God ~

The perfect wisdom of our God
Revealed in all the universe:
All things created by His hand
And held together at His command.
He knows the mysteries of the seas,
The secrets of the stars are His;
He guides the planets on their way
And turns the earth through another day.

The matchless wisdom of His ways
That mark the path of righteousness;
His word a lamp unto my feet,
His Spirit teaching and guiding me.
And O the mystery of the cross,
That God should suffer for the lost,
So that the fool might shame the wise,
And all the glory might go to Christ!

O grant me wisdom from above,
To pray for peace and cling to love,
And teach me humbly to receive
The sun and rain of Your sovereignty.
Each strand of sorrow has a place
Within this tapestry of grace;
So through the trials I choose to say:
“Your perfect will in Your perfect way.”

    Dearest Sierra I love your heart and I love your passion for Jesus. And yes the songs that you sang at the conference are explosively beautiful and I understand why you would get so excited about singing those powerful words. Oh that one so young could be so excited about Jesus. It thrills my heart. I love you sweet girl
