It is a good day for you! Last time, we defined the word ‘choice’, and how well it can be maximised. When choice is wrongly made, it mars destiny and fulfilment of one’s purpose on the earth.
Today, I shall be looking at The Place of Wisdom in Choice-Making.
What is wisdom? It means correct application of knowledge. Wisdom is knowledge correctly acquired and applied. No one can apply or practise the knowledge that you have acquired on your behalf; you have to do it yourself.
The importance of the place of wisdom in making wise choices cannot be over-emphasized, because wisdom is the principal ingredient in making wise choices. God’s Word says: Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding (Proverbs 4:7).
Sound wisdom is inevitable in making sound decisions. “How can this sound wisdom be acquired?” you may ask. Consider the following rules:
God’s Word settles your world. Psalms 119:98 says: Thou through thy commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies: for they are ever with me. So, God’s Word makes wise.
Therefore, let the Word of wisdom dwell in you richly, not scantily. Read your Bible, anointed materials, listen to tapes and CDs and keep filling your tank with wisdom. His Words are new every morning (Lamentations 3:23).
God is the only Giver of sound wisdom. That is why He said in His Word: If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him (James 1:5). Personally, one of the most frequent prayers I have ever prayed, has to do with wisdom.
Are you at a crossroad on certain issues right now, and wondering which way to go? Pray and ask God for wisdom. He gives liberally to those who ask of Him.
Praise is an inspiration. While praising God, you gain access to light from heaven, showing you the way to go. So, rather than complain and murmur over that issue of concern, give God praise, because His praisers never lack sound wisdom. See you next month as we continue with the teaching.
The place of wisdom is the ultimate in making wise choices. Only God’s children are privileged to access this wisdom. To become a child of God demands confessing your sins and accepting Jesus as your Lord and Saviour. In case you are not yet born again and you would like to, please pray this prayer with me:“Dear Lord Jesus, I come to You today as a sinner. Forgive me of my sins. I believe You died and rose on the third day for my sins. I accept You as my Lord and Saviour. Make me a child of God today. Thank You for accepting me into Your Kingdom.”
Congratulations, you are now born again! I believe that you will begin to experience the reality of the price that Jesus paid for your sins at Calvary.
