It Pays To Listen, As Well As Obey

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

A warning will always come before destruction does, but if a person refuses to listen, obey or take heed to correction then the individual will eventually set themself up to be hurt or possibly destroyed. The sad and bad part is, sometimes the setup in which the person brings upon themself causes them not to be able to make a comeback. There are some people who just feel as if no one can correct them, and the more God sends people into their lives to try to warn the individuals of their wrong; the more stubborn, rebellious and hard-hearted the individuals will become. Wrong will never be right and right will never be wrong. Whenever God sends a warning, God always has a reason for it and warnings should always be taken very serious.

Proverb 29:1 says “A man who still won’t obey after being warned many times will suddenly be destroyed. Nothing can save him.” (NIRV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

You Are Smarter Than That

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

A person who trusts in themself usually will end up making unwise decisions and choices; sometimes their decisions and choices can even lead them to trouble or even danger because wisdom was not taken into consideration. Because God is wisdom, a person should always put their trust in God instead of themself. Even when God places people in our lives who have experienced and been through things, God desires that we learn from those individuals to keep from making some of the same mistakes those individuals may have made. Trust in God always leads to a positive outcome in any situation.

Proverb 28:26 says “Those who trust in themselves are fools, but those who walk in wisdom are kept safe.” (NIV)

Proverb 28:26 says “If you think you know it all, you’re a fool for sure; real survivors learn wisdom from others.” (MSG)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

Repentance Makes Things Right

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

Each day everyone should find it in their heart to repent. God knows that no one is perfect and therefore, God knows there is a possibility that everyone may do things knowingly, as well as unknowingly. So that a person can be in right standing with God, an individual must always acknowledge whenever they have done, said or thought wrong and then the person must ask God to forgive them of the wrong and must also learn to forgive themself, as well. Repentance is not just an act of confessing wrong, but it also consists of turning away and not going back to the act of wrongdoing. This is what frees a person from having hidden sin in their heart.

Proverb 28:13 says ” Whoever hides their sins will not be successful, but whoever confesses their sins and stops doing wrong will receive mercy.” (ERV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

You Hold The Key To Your Blessings

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

God places people in our lives to not only help us, but to keep us grounded and focused so that we may keep moving in the right direction, and do that which is right from that which is wrong. The individuals that are divinely placed within our lives should also be holding us accountable to let us know whenever we are getting off course or off track because the actions of a person in whether they are obedient or disobedient will be what determines how a person will be blessed; for God only honors obedience.

Proverb 28:9 says “If you refuse to obey what you have been taught, your prayers will not be heard.” (NCV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

Your Mouth Can Save You From Trouble 

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

Wisdom should always be used in the words that a person release out of their mouth. Because there is power in the words you speak, you should be very careful of every word that you allow to go into the atmosphere and environment. Everything that you release out of your mouth, you can actually make it happen for yourself; whether it be good or bad, negative or positive. The safest and wisest thing to do is to always think before you speak. 

Proverb 21:23 says “If you want to stay out of trouble, be careful what you say.” (GNT)

Foolishness Can Lead To Death

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

A person should always think before doing things, especially if the things they are going to do are foolish because foolish, unwise things can cause harm or danger, and can even lead to death. Even when a warning goes out to a person and a person refuses to listen or obey, but the person chooses to do whatever it is they may want; wrong things are chosen over right, then the person will end up having to suffer the consequences whatever and however they may be. 

Proverbs 21:16 & 29 says “Whoever does not use good sense will end up among the dead. Wicked people are stubborn, but good people think carefully about what they do.” (NCV) 

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

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.

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 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.
