God Has Your Back, So Why Are You Afraid Of Someone Stabbing You In It?

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

When a person really knows who has their back, then that person does not have to go around daily looking over their shoulder to see who is behind them trying to stab them in their back. Even though people should always use wisdom and discernment by being watchful and mindful of their surroundings and even the people they entertain, as well as who they connect themselves with, no individual should ever walk around living in fear of other people doing hurt or harm to them. Something on the inside of a person will always alert them to let them know when something or someone is not right to be around or that a person does not have their best interest at heart. So until a person gets a warning sign about something or someone, they should continue to live in peace and be happy making every moment of their life count and even when they get a warning about something or someone, they should then pray for wisdom so they will know how to be safe and protected in the process.

Psalm 27:1 says “The Lord is my light and the one who saves me. So why should I fear anyone? The Lord protects my life. So why should I be afraid?” (NCV)

Diggers Always Dig Their Own Hole To Fall Into

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

There are some people who intentionally do nothing but plot and plan to set out to hurt, harm and try to set traps for others, not even realizing that every time they are plotting and digging traps for someone else, they are really digging a hole for themself to fall into. A person who thinks they are deceiving others is really blind, and refuses to see themself because it is themself they are really deceiving. In the end, the person who eventually falls the hardest is the individual who goes around plotting and setting traps for everyone else, not realizing all of the time they were actually digging a hole for themself to fall into.

Psalms 7:14-16 says “There are people who think up evil and plan trouble and tell lies. They dig a hole to trap others, but they will fall into it themselves. They will get themselves into trouble; the violence they cause will hurt only themselves.” (NCV)

Trust God For Strategies

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

When people smile in your face, but at the same time do not mean you any good, God will show you who the individuals really are. Sometimes, it may be people close to you; at other times it may be people that are around you, such as on a job and then it could even be someone that may not even like you, for no reason at all. Whoever the individuals may be and whatever their reasons may be, if you would just trust God; God will always keep you steps ahead of your enemies and always show you which direction to go in so that you will be safe, and can stay steps ahead of those individuals while also living the life that God desires for you to live.

Psalm 5:8 says “Lord, since I have many enemies, show me the right thing to do. Show me clearly how you want me to live.” (NCV)

Do Not Allow Yourself To Become Distracted

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

A person who thinks for themself and does not allow others to negatively influence them will always be happy and have peace of mind. No one should ever allow another person to control their life to the point, especially when the things they know the other person is leading them to do are wrong. A person will always feel within their heart when something is not right; whether it is being around the wrong people, going to the wrong places or doing the wrong things. In order to be happy, a person must remain focused. In order to remain focused, a person must know when things are sent to distract them, such as wrong and negative people, wrong and negative things, as well as going to wrong and negative places.

Psalm 1:1 says “Happy are those who don’t listen to the wicked, who don’t go where sinners go, who don’t do what evil people do.” (NCV)

Real Love Straight From The Heart

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

Everyone is required to love others and a person’s love for others should always be real and genuine; straight from the heart. If a person says they love others, but the love is not real, a person can normally see when it is fake and phony, and can see when a person is pretending to love versus having real love. When real love is being displayed, a person will know it because they can feel it.

Romans 12:9-10 says “Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good. Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other.” (NLT)

Consult God And He Will Let You Know What He Expects

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

Even though we are in the world, we do not have to act like nor should we think like other people in the world. Each person should be their own individual person seeking God in how they should think and view things, as well as themself and not trying to take on the mindset and lifestyle of others. Whenever a person starts trying to copy and imitate the lives of others, that person can become distracted and get off track and can cause themself not to fully live their life in the way in which God expects the person to live, because the person will not know what God expects and requires of them. That is why each day God desires for each individual person to seek Him in regards to what He expects of them, and not what a person does in regards to what they think or feel is best for themself.

Romans 12:2 says “Don’t change yourselves to be like the people of this world, but let God change you inside with a new way of thinking. Then you will be able to understand and accept what God wants for you. You will be able to know what is good and pleasing to Him and what is perfect.” (ERV)

God Wants Us To Trust Him; Not Question Him

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

Because God is in control of everything and everyone, God can allow whatever He wants to happen, as well as stop whatever He desires to stop. If God allows something, He always has a reason, purpose and plan for whatever He may allow. Even though we may not always understand why God allows things to happen in the way which He allows things to be done, we must trust that God knows what He is doing because of His wisdom without trying to question His authority. Trusting God is what is required of us. Whenever a person starts questioning the authority of God with questions such as “why this and why that”, the individual puts themself in the position of disrespecting God. There are some things a person may not never know. If God sees fit for a person to know something, God will reveal it to the person in a way in which it will be very clear, and the things that once did not make sense will begin to make perfect sense.

Romans 9:20-21 says “You are only human, and human beings have no right to question God. An object should not ask the person who made it, “Why did you make me like this?” The potter can make anything he wants to make. He can use the same clay to make one thing for special use and another thing for daily use.” (NCV)

All Things Are Working For Your Good

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

Everything that happens in a person’s life is for a reason; the good, the bad, the pretty, as well as the ugly. Because God controls everything, God can stop anything that He wants, but if God allows something to happen, no matter what the situation may be; God has a reason, a purpose and a plan for it. Even in a bad situation, God can and will allow things to work out for a person’s good in the end where God will get the glory out of the situation, and the person who is directly affected, as well as others will know that God’s hand was in the plan of the situation all of the time. What started out not making sense will eventually make sense in the end.

Romans 8:28 says “We know that in everything God works for the good of those who love Him. They are the people He called, because that was His plan.” (NCV)

Wisdom Will Represent A Person’s Lifestyle

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

A person’s life speaks for itself by the way a person carries and represents themself. A person does not have to walk around carrying a sign announcing who they are nor do they have to make it a point of proving to others what their status, title or position is in life. All a person needs to do is just simply be themself by living right, and doing right and honest things, and it will cause other people to know who the person really is because what is on the inside of a person will actually show up on the outside of the person.

James 3:13-15 says “Are there any among you who are really wise and understanding? Then you should show your wisdom by living right. You should do what is good with humility. A wise person does not boast. If you are selfish and have bitter jealousy in your hearts, you have no reason to boast. Your boasting is a lie that hides the truth. That kind of “wisdom” does not come from God. That “wisdom” comes from the world. It is not spiritual. It is from the devil.” (ERV)

Wholesome Words Should Only Be Spoken

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

Some people think they can do anything they want, and it is ok but that is not true. Likewise, it is the same thing when some people speak. Some people think they can say anything they want and it is ok, but that is not true. The words that come out of a person’s mouth should be clean, pure and respectful to others, and most of all pleasing to God. Some people think it is ok to pray, praise and worship God one minute and then the next minute, they think it is ok to curse at someone or even use curse words in their conversation. That is a complete disrespect and unacceptable. Every word that comes out of a person’s mouth should be a word that a person would not be ashamed of and a word that a person should be able to repeat.

James 3:9-12 says “With our tongues we both bless the Lord and Father and curse human beings made in God’s likeness. Blessing and cursing come from the same mouth. My brothers and sisters, it just shouldn’t be this way! Both fresh water and salt water don’t come from the same spring, do they? My brothers and sisters, can a fig tree produce olives? Can a grapevine produce figs? Of course not, and fresh water doesn’t flow from a saltwater spring either.”

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.
