Today's Photograph . . . . Pray That God Will Allow You To Receive Faith In Him At All Times, Good Or Bad  (SS
Bible Study Verses
I Corinthians 2:5, 14
That your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God. (NKJV)
I Corinthians 2:14
But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. (NKJV)
I am a wildlife biologist, a scientist of sorts. Many scientists who are struggling with Christian faith get hung up with ideas described in these verses as the wisdom of man. As a result, they cannot turn their lives over to God fully in faith. Many scholars and intellects have the same issue with faith in God. I have one thing to say to those men: "We'll never outsmart God." 

His wisdom far exceeds that of man. He created us, the Earth, and all that is in it. What more do we need to know? It's really quite simple. Each day that I am working or hunting in the field, I am inspired by God's power when I look at His beautiful creation--wildlife, mountains, streams, and clouds. I choose to trust in the knowledge and wisdom of our Creator and to receive the things of the Spirit of God.

Action Point
Romans 10:17 reminds each of us, "So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God," (NKJV). Get into God's Word now, not later. 

One of the best uses of my smart phone is the listening to a dramatized version of the Bible. Try Bible.Is.  Pray that God will allow you to receive faith in Him at all times, good or bad, and He will bless you with the things of the Holy Spirit.

Sportsmen's Tip of the Day
To become more "woods wise," learn to identify different animal tracks. There are several good field guides to aid you. You'll be surprised how much you were missing before learning how to do this!
