Ofcourse the wisdom came to me, only once I came to the saving knowledge of Christ.
But once the knowledge came, I realised my folly. I realized, I was lacking gratitude towards God and all the blessings He blessed me wiht so freely, so abundantly.I was not an orphan, but my parents were there to look after me, I was sheltered and protected and didn’t have to fight for my living like orphans and not so priviledged children. I was getting proper education and did not have to fight for my rights to education, like women in backward areas and many countries, who are executed or insulted for their simple rights to literacy.I was well fed and well taken care of by my parents and not left as a destitute to look after myself and there were innumerable other blessings I took for granted earlier because of my lack of gratitude.
It broke my heart that day and I decided from here on I will “ cooperate” with God and make all the blessings. He is about to bless me with ”work” for me and then on there was no looking back. I chose to “Believe and Live” those promises my God has promised me for my life.
Since that day on, I am always filled with peace and joy from within nothing disturbs my mind. I am always at rest its not that everything is always working in my favour, I do go through disappointing experiences too, but the beauty of it is that my Lord trained me to “handle” everything deftly, with a stable mind and a stable tongue, I am able to come out everytime as a victor. I keep an attitude of gratitude towards God, knowing that He is my father and will never leave me nor forsake me, since He promised me so.
Thus sayeth the Lord “Do not remember the former things, neither consider the things of the old. Behold I am doing a new thing now it springs forth do you not perceive and know it and will you not pay heed to it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.(”Isaiah 43:18-19)

God is “able and migthty”.
Do not fear and never doubt just believe if you find no way in front of you just know that your God is able to open new doors of blessings and opportunities for you, He will open those doors of blessings, which no one will ever be able to shut. Always have an attitude of gratitude.
May I help you all to pray?
Help God to build you up.
