Week 4 - 7. It is now over three weeks since you started on the route to following God's way. Change will still be happening,
although it may not be so rapid - the 'honeymoon period' may feel like it is coming to an end. But do not despair - despairing
means you are not following the three lessons so far - GOD is LOVE NOW.Well done for getting this far.The next 4 lessons in my view sum up much of what God's asks of us. They are ASKING for:
1. Understanding
2. Wisdom
3. Guidance
4. Gifts (Spiritual)'Though it cost you all you have get understanding' Throughout my life I have learnt, with hindsight, that if you obtain
understanding in situations, you will go far further than if you make assumptions about the situation. I promise you that your
understanding and corresponding response to a situation will be better if it is based on a full understanding rather than bits of
information and self made assumptions. I am still learning this lesson - all too often I make the wrong assumptions and hence the
wrong response in situations. So in thinking about God and love in this moment, ask Him for understanding in all that you do.This then naturally leads on to the wisdom. Verse : 'If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God,... and it will be given to
him.' ' Wisdom calls aloud in the street.' 'Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. The fear of the Lord teaches a man wisdomUnderstanding is the beginning of wisdom. Ask God for Understanding and wisdom. Wisdom is one of the most special gifts that God
can bestow on us. Usually it is gained whilst we mature and learn from our experiences. For some wisdom comes naturally - a gift
God has bestowed on them from an early age to shine as a light for God.Guidance is vital in learning how to live god's way. All too often we think we know what is best to do, to buy, to think. However
God knows best, not us. Unfortunately few of us know this. When you are a child, is it not your parent's that normally know best,
and who guide you when you are young? The same is true for God. He should be our guide, not ourselves. It sounds odd doesn't it,
but I promise you, learning this will help you solve many of the dilemmas and opportunities that come your way.And then final in this series of prime areas is gifts. Ask God to give you spiritual gifts. Verse : 'Follow the way of love and
eagerly desire spiritual gifts, especially the gift of prophecy' These are the gifts unique to you which God will bestow on you to
transform those around you. This is when life will move away from focusing much of your time on yourself and more on how God will
work through you to do God's work.
