Using wisdom.

King Solomon believed that wisdom is something that we get from God.

And Proverbs 2:6 (https://bit.ly/2oxBIQa) basically says that with this wisdom we received from God, we will have the ability to find success and happiness in our lives.

While I was reading this verse, it comforted me to realise once again that each one of us can ‘legitly’ trust the plans that God has for our lives and along with that – we don’t have to worry about anything, because He will provide us with everything we need.

“To know how to use knowledge is to have wisdom.” – Charles Spurgeon
Now that you have the knowledge how will you use your wisdom to inspire others?

Finding it simple.

The weird thing about life is that, as confusing and complex as it so often seems to be, it’s also unbelievably simple.

There are thousands of opportunities each day for you to disobey God and get involved in stuff you actually know will mess you up, and yet the psalmist offers us peace and a practical way forward amidst all that noise: ‘How can a young person stay pure? By obeying Your word.’ (Psalm 119:9 http://bit.ly/2urRcMc)

If today gets hectic and you’re drawn towards something toxic, ask the Holy Spirit to highlight God’s word over that situation. What do you know to be true? Be brave to live it. Solomon tells us in Proverbs 9:10, ‘Knowledge of the Holy One results in good judgment.’ http://bit.ly/2xsLgPE

Have you heard the statement, “Those who know better, do better”?

Some people, and let’s be honest ourselves even, have used this as the reason for bad decisions and behaviour – “OH, but no one told me” or “OH, but I didn’t know that was wrong”.

Read Proverbs 2:1-11 (http://bit.ly/2DZ4jXR)

Here Solomon is telling us that we CAN know better! All we have to do is ask for wisdom and knowledge and God will give it to us. With this ‘ask’ comes a few promises as well – victory, protection, understanding.

Ask God for His wisdom and knowledge today, so you can live better.

Our world has been vastly affected by the development of the internet and we can find the answer to questions just by using Google. Information is widely available in books but with our phones or other electronic devices we can feed our inquiring minds at the touch of a button. The internet contains a huge amount of material and data but what about real knowledge?

Read Proverbs 8:10-11 (http://bit.ly/2v5s34A) and 16:16 (http://bit.ly/2xsumAA).

God’s word gives us the best knowledge and guidance we need. Will you chase after wisdom and understanding this week?
