Trusting God’s firm hold on Reality is as grounding for me as the firmly planted feet of God in this image!
Knowledge, I long to know You better.
God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to till it and keep it. And the LORD God commanded the man, “You may freely eat of every tree of the garden; but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat…” Genesis 2:15-16
Will any teach God knowledge? Job 21:22
The spirit of the LORD shall rest on him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and the fear of the LORD.
Invitation to prayer
Position your left hand as if it were holding a precious, sealed book from below. Connect your mind and heart to something important inside the volume.
Allow your emotions, thoughts, and senses to inspire you to pray.
