God’s Tools & Wisdom from Just Do Something by Kevin DeYoung

Some of my favorites quotes from Chapters 7 & 8 of Just Do Something by Kevin DeYoung
Chapter 7 Tools of the Trade

Remember, God’s will for your life is your sanctification, and God tends to use discomfort and trials more than comfort and ease to make us holy.

Chapter 8 The Way of Wisdom

Verse 5 gives the answer to the question, “What is wisdom?” Wisdom is understanding the fear of the Lord and finding the knowledge of God.

Isn’t it interesting that we are never told in Scripture to ask God to reveal the future or to show us His plan for our lives? But we are told—in no uncertain terms—to call out for insight and to cry aloud for understanding.

God is interested in more than getting us to follow His to-do list; He wants transformation.

God wants us to drink so deeply of the Scriptures that our heads and hearts are transformed so that we love what He loves and hate what He hates.

God doesn’t tell us the future for this simple, yet profound reason: We become what we behold. God wants us to behold Him in His glory so that we can be transformed into His likeness (2 Corinthians 3:18).
