Today’s Inspiration: “How much better to get wisdom than gold, to get insight rather than silver! The highway of the upright avoids evil; those who guard their ways preserve their lives. Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.” Proverbs 16:16-18 NIV. The Spirit of wisdom brings forth timely instructions for godly decisions. We all make decisions daily and we need the wisdom of God to navigate life by His Word.
The fall of man happened in the garden of Eden not because of lack of choices but lack of wisdom and obedience to God’s Word. Adam chose his own ways rather than God’s instructions and was deceived by satan, allowing sin to blossom unto death for the wages of sin is death. Romans 6:23. But the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus. In the end of times, satan is bringing more confusion, distractions and deceptions to the world. Without God’s Word we would be blinded to double-mindedness, like Adam. Apostle James taught, “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.” James 1:5-8. Let’s pray and ask for God’s wisdom through His divine Word this daily. Do not doubt because only believing brings breakthroughs.
Prayer: O Lord my God, as I seek your face bestow your wisdom upon me and direct all my steps. Let me not work on what I want to do but do what you are working on. Remove all confusions, indecisiveness and distractions from my mind, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. My faith is in you and your Holy Word, in Jesus' Name, Amen.
