Have An Ear To Hear Wise Counsel

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

In life, there will come a time when everyone will need the advice or wise counsel from someone in which they can trust. Depending on the season you may be in at the particular moment, the situation or circumstance that you may be facing at the particular time or whatever the challenge may be at the given moment; God will always make sure that the right people are in place to assist, guide, direct and speak life into you regarding what you may be facing, dealing with or going through so that you may be able to see the good in the bad; so that you can make wiser and better choices and decisions, and also to be able to help you to see things from a different angle than the way you had previously viewed them, so that you may get a different perspective on the situation that you may had never thought of before.

Proverb 27:9 says “The sweet smell of perfume and oils is pleasant, and so is good advice from a friend.”

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

Only God Really Knows What Will Happen In Your Life

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

Even though a person may make plans from one day to the next, no one really knows what will actually happen throughout the course of their day. When people put their life in God’s Hands, God’s plans will always end up working out better for a person than a person’s plans could ever work for themself. Though you may not always understand or totally agree with the plans of God; God always has a way of planning and organizing things for your good. God knows that a person can only plan for the present, but because God knows everything about a person, God can plan the whole future of a person at one time, even in one day. That is what you call “perfect planning.”

Proverb 27:1 says “Don’t brag about tomorrow, for you don’t know what a day will bring.” (CEB)

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)

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)

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.

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

Each day people make plans; whether it be plans to go to work, school, shopping, visiting the sick, plans to travel from one place to another, plans to go on vacation, plans to make phone calls, plans to spend time with family and friends, and even plans to rest and relax. Whatever and whenever you plan things, you should always be prepared to know that your plans could change. God can and will get in the middle of a person’s plans at anytime and change them for different reasons. Sometimes, God will even change your plans to protect you from hurt, harm or danger that is ahead of you that you cannot see.

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)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

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

A person who knows information and things about another person, and who may be put in a position to share the information with others should always tell the truth; they should never lie nor exaggerate because lying and exaggeration takes away from the truth, and it also causes the person to be considered as a liar. Truth will always stand through every lie, but a lie will eventually be revealed so that the truth may come out.

Proverbs 14:5 & 25 says “A good witness is one who does not lie. A bad witness is a liar who cannot be trusted. A witness who tells the truth saves lives, but one who tells lies hurts others.” (ERV)

Be blessed, be encouraged

“A word of wisdom a day keeps distractions and foolishness away.”

The type of company a person keeps can tell a lot about who a person is, as well as what a person’s lifestyle may be. It is up to each individual person to discern and choose wisely in who they should and should not connect with, as well as who a person should spend their time with. Connecting and spending time with the right people can cause a person to be blessed and walk through many open doors of favor, but connecting and spending time with the wrong people can cause a person to suffer and endure much pain. 

Proverb 13:20 says “Become wise by walking with the wise; hang out with fools and watch your life fall to pieces.” (The MSG Bible)

Be blessed, be encouraged

​”A word of wisdom a day keeps distractions and foolishness away.”

A person who delivers mess, dirt and confusion to others is nothing but full of negativity, as well as a troublemaker, but a person who delivers good, positive, uplifting and encouraging news to others will try their best to straighten the mess out of all the trouble that the negative person may bring to others. Never allow anyone to treat you like a trashcan by dumping mess, trash and garbage on you. Mess stinks and it is not meant to get in a person’s ears nor on a person’s heart.

Proverb 13:17 says “Unreliable messengers cause trouble, but those who can be trusted bring peace.” (GNB)

Be blessed, be encouraged

“A word of wisdom a day keeps distractions and foolishness away.”

When a person pours and deposits into the life of others; as well as teach, impact, empower and positively influence other people, it is because they care and want the best for those individuals. In life, lessons are taught in order that we may grow, mature, become wise, as well as knowledgeable. Because God desires that no one be ignorant, a person should value and take to heart when someone is sent into their life to help them because the other person’s purpose is to push other people further down the road, so that a person not become stagnant, stunted, stuck nor still.

Proverbs 13:13-14 says “Those who reject what they are taught will pay for it, but those who obey what they are told will be rewarded. The teaching of a wise person gives life. It is like a fountain that can save people from death.” (NCV)

Be blessed, be encouraged

and have a great day.
