If you were offered a choice to have all the gold, silver and precious stones or all wisdom, what would you choose?
Proverbs 8:10-11 NIV [Wisdom speaking]
10 Choose my instruction instead of silver,
knowledge rather than choice gold,
11 for wisdom is more precious than rubies,
and nothing you desire can compare with her.
The Word of God gives us a choice. We are free to choose, however the Lord gives us advice on what to choose.
Psalm 111:10 NIV
10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom;
all who follow his precepts have good understanding.
To him belongs eternal praise.
To fear the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. I pray that we fear HIM and lean to HIM for understanding. Doing things HIS way and not our own ways.
As choices come up in our daily lives, let us pray and seek HIS wisdom. Let’s seek the Lord on how to deal with our daily circumstances. God will be glad to teach us HIS ways. All we have to do is ask.
James 1:5 NIV
If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.
Let us choose each day, each moment as necessary to seek the Lord for HIS wisdom.
Are the children fighting with one another?
Are business decisions boggling the mind?
Perplexed by what direction to step in ministry?
Does your husband not agree with your choices?
Are there more days in the week than the pay check?
Are your children at home from school screaming “I’m bored”?
Are family members not cooperating with one another?
Take time out to seek the Lord on how to deal with issues HIS way.
His wisdom is more precious than gold, silver and rubies.
To God be the glory!!
Blessings in Christ--
