Looking In All The Wrong Places - Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

'I went in search of a word from God.' Kevin Carney

A modern trend, the vain search,
age of information, wisdom of the world,
looking in all the wrong places;

“God gave knowledge and insight
in all writing and wisdom;
and Daniel himself had understanding
in all sorts of visions and dreams.” Daniel 1: 17.

Where would you seek a word from God?

Christ’s servant Paul declared
“my speech and what I preached
were not with persuasive words

or words of wisdom
but with a demonstration
of spirit and power,

that YOUR faith might be,
not in men’s wisdom
but in God’s power.” 1 Corinthians 2: 4-5.

Would you search for a word or ask God?

“So, if any one of YOU is lacking in wisdom,

let him keep on asking God,
for he gives generously to all
and without reproaching;
and it will be given him.

But let him keep on asking in faith,
not doubting at all, for he who doubts
is like a wave of the sea driven
by the wind and blown about.” James 1: 5-6.

Therefore ask in faith and you shall receive,
a promise from God, but doubt receive not. James 1: 7.

'I went in search of a word from God.' Kevin Carney

Yet if you will read the Bible, God's word,
from cover to cover, not a single word,
but a flood you will discover, God’s word.

Would you search for God’s word in the world?

It was Jesus who said “My kingdom
is no part of this world.” John 18: 36.

Paul said “For the wisdom of this world
is foolishness with God; for it is written:
“He catches the wise in their own cunning.” 1 Corinthians 3: 19.

I also went in search of God
but mostly I never left my house.

I read the Bible from cover to cover
after all it is the world’s best seller.

Every year globally the world’s best seller.
The first mass produced printed book ever.

Johannes Gutenberg’s,1452 -1455 masterpiece, movable type edition.
Bibles never since out of print; help complete; Christ’s sacred mission.
