He Blesses Those Who Seek His Advice

In the study of Peter and John as written about in the post Movers and Shakers, we get an example of their boldness as they stood up to the rulers, the elders, and the teachers of the law. They went through trying times but they were bold, they knew the power in Christ, and they prayed for their needs.

Let us also be bold today, pay attention to our dreams, and take action to create better situations for our future and the future of our loved ones. God blesses those who seek His advice and follow through with His guidance. Let us look forward to better times ahead and take inspiration from this video: Blessings – Laura Story.


In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit intercedes for us through wordless groans. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God. – Romans 8:26-27

  1. I notice that that the teachings of Paul the Pharisee are being quoted.

    Here are two more quotes, from the Apostle Peter, [2 Peter 3:2]
    And from Jesus quoting the Prophet Isaiah 29:13 [Matthew 15:8-9]

    “I want you to recall the words spoken in the past by the holy prophets and the command given by our Lord and Savior through your apostles.”
    (In other words, The Law and The Prophets, and
    The “Red Letter” commandments spoken by Jesus, recorded by His two faithful eyewitnesses The Apostle Matthew and The Apostle John in our New Testament.)

    “’These people honor me with ther lips, but their hearts are far from me. They worship me in vain; their teachings are but rules taught by men.’

  2. Reading through Gospel of Matthew this morning,
    God brought to light two more relevant quotes: The words of Jesus relating to John the Baptist;
    “For all the Prophets and the Law prophesied until John.” [Matthew 11:13]

    and
    the beginning of the anonymous Letter to the Hebrews [1:2]
    “In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he as spoken to us by his Son……”

    In other words, Jesus was NOT just “a prophet” that we should esteem, one of many, and not the most important one either. Jesus was and is God, the unique Son of God, “The Prophet” above all others, prophesied by Moses in the Law [Deuteronomy 18:14-20]. No one else’s words or teachings are above, or anywhere equal to, Jesus Christ the Jewish Messiah, Son of Yahweh the Most High God of Israel.

    What is the supreme written “Word of God”? Not one man’s writings, or his unsupported testimony about himself – that is the recipe for a personality cult or false religion. The words spoken by the Jesus of the Gospels, recorded by more then one faithful eyewitness, are what I am listening to first, above all others.
