TIRED OR UNINSPIRED?

*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*


*TIRED OR UNINSPIRED?*


*Scripture Treasure.*

Job 32: 7- 9 *I thought, ‘Those who are older should speak, for wisdom comes with age.’*

*But there is a spirit within people, the breath of the Almighty within them, that makes them intelligent.*

*Sometimes, the elders are not wise. Sometimes the aged do not understand justice.* (NLT)


*Insight and Highlight.*

Are you tired of life? No, you are not. You are only uninspired!

All you need is an inspiration from God.


*Scripture Commentaries.*

At creation, Job was saying in Job 32:8 that in everyone created, there is a spirit. If that spirit is not empowered by God, the spirit of the person may be stale and of no effect.

Studies of the human brain tell us that how brilliant a person will be is attributed to his genetic makeup.

Genetics with its influences and a large number of it in an individual proves intelligence to be one of the highest heritable traits.

Job 10:10 traces our genetic makeup from the human semen, from the moment we are *".....poured..... out as milk,...."*

In Jer 1:5 God says He knew who we would be or become even before we were ever formed.

This tells us that nobody was formed and born without God's knowledge.

Every of God's creation was upright, Eccl 7:29.

Sin, however, distorted a lot of God's creation, and as a result, there are foolish people, and they made themselves as such.

In animals, Job 39: 17 says God deprived the ostrich of wisdom and understanding.

About mankind, Job 35:11 says God made us wiser than beasts. *Who teacheth us more than the beasts of the earth, and maketh us wiser than the fowls of heaven?*

This passage tells us that there ought not be anyone created that came into this world unwise.

As at the time of old and even today, people make themselves foolish and are also made foolish

Rom 1:22 says *Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.*

As a result of the depravity in the human race, we have found ourselves asking God for wisdom He already gave but was lost and taken over by the devil.

The devil has taken over the God-given wisdom of some people in that their wisdom turned into foolishness.

For example, how would a person begin to worship what he created by his own hands? (Rom 1:23).

Job 35:11, Jam 1:5 tells us that God is the giver of intelligence. God's wisdom, knowledge, and understanding are all unmistakable virtues of intelligent people. God is their root.

Job 12:13 says *Wisdom and strength belong to God; counsel and understanding are His.*

Solomon showed us that God gives wisdom, 1 Kings 3.

In all the foregoing, we can see that anytime we feel tired in achieving our purpose in life, it is not that we are tired. It is because we need the inspiration of God to revive us.

A touch of God through His inspiration will bring to life a dead conscience.

It is able to revive the weak and make them strong, make the poor rich, Prov 10:22.

Are you tired? Are you void of ideas and vision? Does everything look bleak or no foreseeable future? Do not be tired of the world God still keeps going.

Return and ask God for inspiration!


*Remorse corner.*

You can not be empowered for the strength to go on until you are empowered by God


*Call to Word action.*

Hosea 6:1-2 *Come, and let us return unto the LORD: for he hath torn, and he will heal us; he hath smitten, and he will bind us up.*

*After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight.*


*The Christian clarion duty.*

Job 38:36 *Who has put wisdom in the heart or given understanding to the mind?*

It is God!


*Prayer.*

Lord, keep me going, do not let me be tired or exhausted. Empower me, in Jesus name.


Good morning all and have a blessed day today.


God bless you.
