A Person Can Do Wrong For So Long 

​”Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

Most people who do dishonest, unethical and unlawful things see no wrong in the things they do because most of the time, they will do wrong for so long before they are eventually caught and brought to justice. People who do not agree with the individual’s wrongdoing will sometimes get upset because they cannot understand why it may take so long before the person is caught and brought to justice but God always has a reason, purpose and plan for everything He allows, even when people do wrong for extended periods of time. God will give a person time and space to stop doing wrong, so a person can make things right. When a person refuses to make their wrongs right, God will then take it upon Himself to stop the individual and will take matters into His own hands. God will not only stop the person from doing wrong, but God will also allow other people to see or hear about how He will allow the person to be brought to justice and open shame. Even at times when it may seem like a person may be getting away with wrong, God is always behind the scenes working to show that His hand is bigger than the person’s hand. There is no hand that can outdo the hand of God. Therefore, no one ever gets away with anything, 

Proverbs 21:15 & 30 says “A decision that is fair makes good people happy, but it makes those who are evil very afraid. There is no one wise enough to make a plan that can succeed if the Lord is against it.” (ERV) 

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

Help Is Available For Everyone 

“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

There will be times when God will place people in your life who will need help; the need could be great or it could be small. Whatever the need may be, God will specifically assign the person to you just to see if you are going to help the person or if you are going to reject the person. God will never assign a person to your life if He knew you could not help, assist or meet the need of the individual. Today, it may be someone else who may be in need, but tomorrow it could easily be you. You should never think that you will not need the help of others or never be so close-minded by only going to certain people when you have a need. Neither should you try to choose only certain people to help by picking and choosing who you want to help because God can easily rearrange things, as well as remove things and people in and out of your life to show you that it is not about you or what you may have. When God connects people together, even for the purpose of helping or assisting, God has a reason for it and for everyone involved. God desires that no one miss their moment. 

Proverb 21:13 says “Those who shut their ears to the cries of the poor will be ignored in their own time of need.” (NLT) 

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

It Is A Sad Thing When God Moves People To The Bottom   

“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

 
People who walk and operate in the spirit of pride, arrogance, evil, and wrongdoing are people who also walk and operate in sin. God frowns on people who think they are better and above others, as well as those who think they can do wrong and get away with it. God has a way of shifting people and moving them around because people who are proud, arrogant, self-righteous and who think they are better and above others always feel as if they are on top by looking down on others. While these individuals are busy looking down on others, God is behind the scenes slowly rearranging things so that the high-minded person will eventually end up beneath the people they have been looking down on. 

Proverbs 21:4 & 24 says “Proud looks and proud thoughts are sins. They show a person is evil.  Proud people think they are better than others. They show they are evil by what they do.” (ERV) 

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

Obedience Is Always Better Than Sacrifice 

“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

Obedience is always better than sacrifice. God always honors people for their obedience to Him. Whenever people obey God by not giving in to temptation, wrongdoing or things that will satisfy or please the person instead of satisfying and pleasing God, it shows that a person trusts God to keep them from doing wrong. God does not honor and bless wrong, but God does make a person pay for their acts of wrong. Because God loves right, He will always bless a person for doing the right thing, even if the person is tempted by the wrong things. 

Proverb 21:3 & 8 says “Doing what is right and fair is more important to the Lord than sacrifices. Guilty people live dishonest lives, but honest people do right.” (NCV) 

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

God Knows What You Are Thinking 

“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

Not only does God want people to have clean hearts and clean hands, God also wants people to have clean thoughts. Whenever a person decides to do something; whether it be right or wrong, it will always begin with a thought. Once a seed is planted in a person’s mind, it will cause their thoughts to take root. Once the thought is formed, it eventually grows in the person’s heart which then produces the things that lead to a person doing the things they will or will not do. God knows the reasons behind everything a person does; whether the motive is right or wrong because God always knows a person’s thoughts. Even if a person lies to themself or others, they cannot lie to God because God knows everything, and will judge all things a person thinks, says and does. 

Proverb 20:27 says “The Lord looks deep inside people and searches through their thoughts.” (NCV) 

Proverb 21:2 says “You may think that everything you do is right, but remember that the Lord judges your motives.” (GNT) 

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

You Should Never Make A Promise To God 

“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

A person should never be too quick to make a promise to God because the person will be tested eventually on the promise, and may end up failing the test. Once a promise is made, it cannot be taken back so it is better not to make a promise due to how you may be feeling at a particular moment.

Proverb 20:25 says “It’s dangerous to promise something to God too quickly. After you’ve thought about it, it may be too late.” (NCV) 

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

God Controls Everything About A Person’s Life 

“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

Life is not about anyone. Life is all about God; how God gets the glory out of a person’s life and also about God being glorified in the life of a person. There is no one who can plan their life better than God can. Because God is the one who created everyone, God is the only one who really decides each day what will take place in the life of every person. Therefore, when a person truly comes to understand that God is always the one in control of everything; even their life, a person will learn to just go with the flow of God, and not fight against what they do not understand or may not agree with. 

Proverb 20:24 says “The Lord decides what a person will do; no one understands what his life is all about.” (NCV) 

Proverb 20:24 says “The Lord has determined our path; how then can anyone understand the direction his own life is taking?” (GNT) 

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

Let God Deal With Others On Your Behalf  

“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

Whenever someone intentionally does things to you that are not right, the best thing to do is to tell God all about the person and what the person has done. Even though God already knows, He also knows that you may be hurt or upset. The best and wisest thing you can do is allow God to deal with the person instead of you trying to deal with the person on your own. Even though you may start out hurting; in the end, the person who caused you to hurt will end up hurting the most because whenever God deals with someone who has intentionally hurt or done you wrong, God has a way of making things just right for you, even to the point that the other person will regret that they did you wrong.

Proverb 20:22 says “Don’t take it on yourself to repay a wrong. Trust the Lord and He will make it right.” (GNT)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

God Judges Everything

“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

Everyone will be judged by God for the things they do, say, as well as think. Because God sees, hears and knows everything; all things are known to Him, including the thoughts, hearts and motives of a person. Because all things are known to God, no one can ever justify their wrongs, in order to make them right. God will always call “wrong as wrong and right as right”.

Proverbs 20:8-9 says “When a king sits on his throne to judge, he knows evil when he sees it. No one can say, “I am innocent; I have never done anything wrong.” (NCV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

God Will Reveal Who You Can Trust

“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”

Good, honest, loyal, dependable and trustworthy people are hard to come across in life. That is why it is very important to never take anyone for granted when God brings a person into your life. When a person’s heart and motives are pure and right, they will treat you right and you will not have to question nor doubt who the person really is. God only brings people into the lives of others to help; not hurt, hinder nor hold back.

Proverb 20:6 says “Many people claim to be loyal, but it is hard to find a trustworthy person.” (NCV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.
