Sometimes, You Have To Be The Bigger Person

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

There may be times when you may find yourself in a conversation with someone, in which the conversation may seem like it is turning in a wrong direction. Before things get too out of control, sometimes you may have to be the bigger person and simply walk away. It may not be easy, but it could easily save you much more heartache and pain.

Proverb 17:14 says “Starting a quarrel is like opening a floodgate, so stop before the argument gets out of control.” (GW)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

Do Not Get Stuck In Your Plans

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

Daily; people may plan, schedule or even organize how their days, weeks or months may be by thinking that they are doing the right thing by thinking things through ahead of time and that is a wise and good thing, but there will be times when a person’s plans may change unexpectedly. Sometimes, God will be the one who intentionally will rearrange a person’s schedule or even change their plans; God may either allow the person to know at that particular moment or God may allow the person to know at a later time why the sudden change of plans. Whatever the reason or purpose may be, the person can be assured that God will always change a person’s plans for the person’s good.

Proverbs 16:1 & 9 says “People may make plans in their minds, but only the Lord can make them come true. People may make plans in their minds, but the Lord decides what they will do.” (NCV)

Money Cannot Buy You Peace

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

A person can have all of the money in the world, and still not be happy. There are some things that money cannot and will not be able to pay for in life, and there are some situations and problems that may arise in a person’s life that money will not be able to resolve. Money can only do so much, but God can do everything and anything a person may need in their life.

Proverb 15:16 says “A simple life in the Fear-of-God is better than a rich life with a ton of headaches.” (MSG)

You Cannot Hide From God

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

Every move and everything that a person does is accounted for. There is no move a person can make that will never be known. There  is not anything a person can do or any place a person can go, in which it will not be known because God sees everything. Nothing and no one can get by God at anytime, not even in the dark.

Proverb 5:21 says “The Lord sees everything you do. Wherever you go, He is watching.” (GNT)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

What Do You Think

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

A positive mind creates positive thoughts, as well as positive ideas. Maintaining a focused and positive mindset will help a person see and hear clearly, as well as think wisely before making quick hasty decisions that the person may regret. Thoughts have a way of controlling a person’s life; that is why it is very important for people to take control of their thoughts. Praying over your mind daily is one of the best and wisest ways for a person to take control of their own thoughts.

Proverbs 4:23 & 25 says “Above all, be careful what you think because your thoughts control your life.  Keep your eyes on the path, and look straight ahead.” (ERV)

Everyone Stands In Need Of Help

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

God blesses people, not just for themselves but so they can also be a blessing to others, as well. God desires that when we see others who may be in need, and we can help meet the need to be of assistance, and not turn our backs and walk away. No one should ever think they could be exempt from being in the place of being in a position of not needing the help or assistance of others, at any time.

Proverbs 3: 27-28 says “Do everything you possibly can for those who need help. If your neighbor needs something you have, don’t say, “Come back tomorrow.” Give it to him immediately.” (ERV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

Correction Is To Make You Better; Not Bitter

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

Correction, discipline and punishment may not always feel good, but it is necessary and it is for the good, in order to make a person better. It is only when a person rejects correction, discipline or punishment that they will find it hard in learning the lesson of the mistake or the wrong they have done. If a person does not receive correction as an act of love, they normally end up becoming bitter, instead of better.

Proverbs 3:11-12 says “My child, when the Lord corrects you, pay close attention and take it as a warning. The Lord corrects those He loves, as parents correct a child of whom they are proud.” (GNT)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

Who Do You Put Your Trust In

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

Whenever a person puts trust in themself, it should be no surprise when their plans are not successful, and do not go as the person had planned. Putting all your trust in God will make your plans successful because God will always lead, guide and direct you in the right direction by strategically ordering each of your steps; not one of your steps will ever be unaccounted for. You cannot go wrong with God; in the end, you will win and come out on top every time. You will be right where God knows you are supposed to be and what you are supposed to be doing at the exact moment as God has planned for your life.

Proverbs 3:5-6 says “Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; He’s the one who will keep you on track.” (The MSG Bible)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

Did You Hear What Wisdom Said

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

Wisdom will speak, as well as give a person instructions so that a person may stay focused and remain on the right track, but in order for a person to know what wisdom is saying, a person must have an open mind, open ears, as well as an open heart in order to receive the things that wisdom speaks and the instructions that wisdom releases. Wisdom always comes to help people; never to hurt anyone.

Proverbs 1:23-25 says “I wanted to tell you everything I knew and give you all my knowledge, but you didn’t listen to my advice and teaching. “I tried to help, but you refused to listen. I offered my hand, but you turned away from me. You ignored my advice and refused to be corrected.” (ERV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

Walk Through The Door of Wisdom

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

Respect for God opens the door for a person to gain wisdom, knowledge and understanding of God, and who He is. Because God Himself is wisdom, He is the perfect one who can truly help a person become wise in all of their ways, as well as open up a person’s complete understanding of all, anything and everything.

Proverbs 1:6-7 says “Then anyone can understand wise words and stories, the words of the wise and their riddles. Knowledge begins with respect for the Lord, but fools hate wisdom and discipline.” (NCV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.
