Wisdom

November 18, 2013

Wisdom my friend is thinking right thoughts and making right choices. Wisdom comes from seeing things as God sees them. God’s wisdom enables us to understand the root causes of our problems and to know what to do about them. It enables us to discover God’s principles for a happy and successful life.

God says in  Proverbs 23:7 “For as he thinks in his heart, so he is.”

What we think determines what we do and what we feel. If we accept WRONG thoughts, it will result in WRONG actions and WRONG feelings.

So, where do WRONG thoughts come from?           

WRONG thoughts come from Satan and from his ungodly world-system, and, this world-system is directly opposed to God and His wisdom. 

We read in I John 2:16 “For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father but is of the world.”

The “wisdom of the world” always overlooks the fact that there is a terrible price to pay for sin, both in this life and in the life to come. 

The Bible says in Hebrews 9:27 “And as it is appointed unto men to die once, but after this the judgment.” 

Being wise is not just KNOWING what God wants us to do.  It is CHOOSING it and DOING it. 

A great man of God once said, “A life of happiness depends on yielding your life to God to do His will in all things, at all times, because we have, once for all settled, that it is the best thing for us.” 

My friend, accepting the wisdom of God leads to RIGHT thinking, which leads to RIGHT actions, which produces RIGHT feelings. This my friend, will make you wise.
