1. SEEING WITH THE EYES OF GOD
I'm asking the Holy Ghost to enable me to see my existence with His eyes and wisdom in order to make the big decisions of my life but also those of my daily life.
Discovering the gift of wisdom
“Seeing the world, situations, current circumstances, problems, everything with the eyes of God, such is wisdom. Sometimes we do see things according to our own pleasure or how we feel in our hearts, namely with love, hatred or envy…This is not the way God sees them. Wisdom is what The Holy Ghost accomplishes in us so that we see all things with the eyes of God.
Such is the gift of wisdom.
This, of course, comes from the intimacy with God, the intimate relationship we have with God, a Father-children relationship. When we are in such a relationship, the Holy Ghost grants us the gift of wisdom. When we are in communion with the Lord, it is as if the Holy Ghost transfigured our hearts and had them feel His warmth and His favour.
The Holy Ghost then makes a Christian “wise” not in the sense that he has an answer to everything, but rather in the sense that he “knows” about God, he knows how God acts, he recognizes things coming from God and distinguishes them from those not coming from God; he has made his the wisdom that God gives our hearts.
It is in this sense that the wise man has the taste and the flavour of God”
- Pope Francis
Asking for the gift of wisdom
Father, I'm asking Thou for the gift of wisdom…Come through Thy Holy Ghost and give me a praying heart fed with silence and adoration.
Let me see the events of my life, the circumstances of my daily routine and the movements of my heart not with the eyes of the world but with Thy eyes.
Come Creator Spirit and visit me, give me the grace to constantly live in Thy presence in the middle of the world. Grant me, as Thou act in me and through me, to enable other people to taste the delights of thy wisdom.
I'm asking Thee this by Jesus, the Christ, and our Lord. Amen.
Living and partaking the gift of wisdom
Today I keep my heart open to the action of the Holy Ghost. I appeal to Him regularly so that I learn how to look at things with the eyes of God. I choose someone with whom to partake what I have discovered of the wisdom of God.
“That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life.” 1 John 1:1
Take a moment to treasure up all these things and ponder them in your heart (cf Luke 2,19)
Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer everyone. Col 4:6
