YOUR WORD FOR TODAY

B E  W I S E

”Cling to wisdom –  she will protect you; Love her – she will guard you.

Determination to be wise is the first step toward becoming wise!  And with your wisdom, develop common sense and good judgement.  If you exalt wisdom, she will exalt you.  Hold her fast and she will lead you to great honour;  she will place a beautiful crown upon your head.  My son, listen to me and do as I say; and you will have a long,  good life”. (Prov 4:6-10TLB)

There cannot be comprehensive success without wisdom.  The divine prescription for a long, good life is obedience to the instructions of wisdom.  The  instruction you obey determine the future you create.  A simple definition of wisdom is correct application of knowledge for one’s personal or corporate benefit.  There is a popular saying that knowledge is power, but the truth is that knowledge cannot be power unless it can fully be utilised in its refined state of applied wisdom.  There is no problem on earth that wisdom cannot  solve.  Solomon asked God for wisdom, he got everything.  Of course the wisdom referred to here is the one from above, not the earthly wisdom.  According to Apostle James:  If you are wise, live a life of steady goodness, so that only good deeds will pour forth.  And if you don’t brag about them you will be truly wise.  And by all means don’t brag about being wise and good if you are bitter and jealous and selfish that is the worst sort of lie.  For jealousy and  selfishness are not God’s kind of wisdom.  Such things are earthly, unspiritual inspired by the devil.

But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure and full of quiet gentleness.  It is peace loving and courteous……(James 3:13-17 TLB)

The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom, the knowledge of the Holy is understanding.  Jesus Christ is the wisdom and power of God.  The Holy Spirit is the spirit of wisdom.  Be wise, give your life to Jesus.  Connect to the Holy Spirit.  He will guide you to comprehensive successful achievements.
