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.

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)

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.

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 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 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.

Do Not Get Lost In Your Thoughts

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

At times, a person can become lost in their thoughts and can drift away from where they are. It is ok to think deep thoughts, as long as you remain focused and not become distracted. As long as you are focused, you will not get off track neither off course and you can see, as well as clearly understand the wisdom in what may have taken you away at the moment and your mind will also be open to receive new revelation on things that may be presented within the things you are thinking.

Proverb 20:5 says “People’s thoughts can be like a deep well, but someone with understanding can find the wisdom there.” (NCV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

Life Is Easier With God

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

In order to live a peaceful life that is full of blessings and favor, you must respect, honor, trust and obey God. Even though you will still encounter things that will cause your faith to be challenged, you can rest knowing God will always be there to go through every challenge and test with you; while also working out every problem you may have to deal with, in order to make things easier for you. Without God in the process, things in your life will be very difficult and hard to get through.

Proverb 19:23 says “Obey the Lord and you will live a long life, content and safe from harm.” (GNT)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.
