Seek God’s Wisdom - Monday's Dose - 30th January 2017

The unfolding of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple. - (Psalm 119:130).

Thoughts for Today

People who are worldly wise often try to disguise this wisdom as God’s wisdom in the form of false religions or beliefs, but there is a vast difference. God’s wisdom is pure in motive, gentle, and merciful. It is not arrogant, boastful, harsh, or unforgiving. It does not create strife or division; it produces good fruit and blesses us. God’s wisdom, as with all the gifts, is always perfectly consistent with Scripture.

Believers should seek God’s wisdom in all things: seeking a mate, bringing up children, settling conflicts in their lives or starting any new venture. This wisdom is the ability to apply the Word of God accurately and correctly, not only in the believer’s life, but in the lives of others. Those with this gift can weigh a situation and receive spiritual insight into it. The gift of wisdom does not always go hand-in-hand with the gift of teaching, but it often does.

The true gift of wisdom brings glory to God. Believers and nonbelievers alike will recognize God as the author of this wisdom when we exercise it according to His will. Pharaoh recognized Yahweh in Joseph’s wisdom.

Nebuchadnezzar recognized Jehovah through Daniel’s wisdom. In Acts 6:10, the wisdom given to the apostle Stephen was striking. We are told that the Jewish leaders “could not stand up against the wisdom or the Spirit by whom he spoke.” This gift should always be used to draw glory to God and never to bring credit to oneself.

Is it time you took authority over worldly wisdom by growing and maturing in God’s wisdom?

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, 
I pray that You would increase my Godly wisdom as You’ve promised in Your Word. Protect me from relying on any kind of wisdom but Yours . Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Monday and God Bless you.
