Need Wisdom? Friday, April 26th 2019

1 Corinthians 3:19

For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, "He catches the wise in their own craftiness";
NKJV

What God calls wisdom and what the world calls wisdom are two very different things. The world looks to academia for wisdom. That is a trap. Pride loves the appearance of wisdom, but it is always rooted in self-deception. The wisdom of God; however, is viewed as foolish to the world.

Proverbs 3:5-8
5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
6 In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.
7 Do not be wise in your own eyes;
Fear the LORD and depart from evil.
8 It will be health to your flesh,
And strength to your bones.

NKJV

So, where do we find true wisdom? My friend, it's in the Bible. Search within those pages and find that God promises to give you wisdom. The Bible, above all other books, can be trusted. The difference is the Author. Walk in the wisdom of God's book and you will walk in the intentions of God for your life.

Life Lesson: To be truly wise, read and apply the Bible in your life.

Dear Father,
Thank You for loving me. Thank You for Your grace and mercy. Lord, You know my thoughts. You know that I want to be made well and victorious in my struggles. At times, I know I have listened to the wisdom of the world rather than trusting in You. Empower me to rely on You. I know I have made mistakes. Thank You for Your forgiveness and revealing Your love toward me. In Jesus' name, Amen.

Living to tell what He died to say,
