“So, Rosie, you’re claiming, it is good for a godly woman in Christ to be a pursuer of things?”
“Yes, dear friend, it is. The kinds of things God asks us to pursue are found in 1 Timothy 6: 11b ESV” Pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, steadfastness, gentleness.”
There are so many “cares of this world” that are crying out for us to pursue. The wise woman, who is “fleeing youthful passions and pursuing righteousness, faith, love, and peace (2 Timothy 22a) is drawing near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with (a) heart sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and (a) body washed with pure water (Hebrews 10:22). She is drawing nearer to God, her Heavenly Father, who knows all things, and sings a song of delight before Him:
“Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! For who has known the mind of (my) Lord, or who has been his counselor? Or who has given a gift to him that he might be repaid? For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever (Romans 11:33-36).”
“Remember, dear friend, every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from (our) Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change (James 1:17). As you receive the good gift of confidence and strength from our Heavenly Father (Psalm 27:14), be a pursuer of things that will not ever perish. Treasure in your hearts the things God has called us to treasure. (Matthew 6:19-21)”
Praying these verses for all who call upon God as our Heavenly Father because of Jesus’ perfect obedience, by the power of the Holy Spirit at work within us.
Love & Grace to you this evening.
