Welcome to “NUGGETS OF GOD’S WISDOM”, a blog by Elizabeth Burgard Fulgaro

So much of our time on earth seems to be spent chasing ways to make sure we are safe and provided for and yet for Christians, this is the wrong focus.  Jesus states plainly in the well-known passage from the Gospel of Matthew:

“So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” (Matt. 6:31-34 NIV)

Worry is the way of the world, not God’s.  God’s way and the way of the world are distinctly different.  God’s ways are highee ~better.  

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
       neither are your ways my ways,”
       declares the LORD.

 9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth,
       so are my ways higher than your ways
       and my thoughts than your thoughts.  (Isa. 55:8-9)

God promises to protect and provide “enough” until the day He decides to bring us home to Him for eternity.  He promises that He has a plan for our lives (Jer. 29:11-13).  He promises that if we will seek Him that He will be found by us and that we will be able to hear His voice.  He promises to speak to those who seek to hear Him and lead us in the way we should go.

If God is God and God is all good and cannot lie, then His ways must be marvelous!!!  He calls us not to worry and tells us that the greatest wealth is not found in that which we cling to on earth (what humans value as riches), but the greatest wealth is found in His Wisdom (His way).

There is freedom, peace and joy found in following His Way.  I am a Californian.  Once gold was discovered in Coloma in 1848, California became a state where people came to it seeking wealth through fame, gold, business success, etc so that they would have better lives.  But all who came to California in prior generations seeking worldly wealth as the answer to all their problems are now DEAD, UNLESS they came to faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord along the way.  In other words, worldly wealth ~even if they found it~ was just a temporary solution.  GOD IS THE PERMANENT SOLUTION!  We need to hunt for HIM more than any earthly gold. 

The goal of “NUGGETS OF GOD’S WISDOM” is to facilitate the seeking process by providing nuggets of God’s Wisdom in bite-size, easily digestible form. =)  May God bless us all as we each seek to journey deeper into His heart! 

For HIM alone,

Elizabeth
