Do Not Wear Your Welcome Out 

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

There is a limit to everything. Too much of anything is not good for anyone, and that also includes visitation. Wisdom should be used in friendships and all relationships. You never want to get to the point in which you wear a relationship out within your life. Just because a person opens their door and extends an invitation does not mean you should walk to and through the door every time you see the door open and just because a person may not say anything does not mean the person gladly welcomes or receives you each time you may show up. Showing up one too many times can actually sometimes push a person away from you, to the point in which a person may  want to see less of you than more of you. 

Proverb 25:17 says “And when you find a friend, don’t outwear your welcome; show up at all hours and he’ll soon get fed up.” (The MSG Bible) 

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)

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.

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

There are some people who actually get pleasure out of arguing and fighting so they will keep mess and confusion going at all times. The sad part is; these individuals will try to pull anyone, including innocent people into their mess. What these individuals do not realize is, God does not bless mess. God is a God of peace, and not confusion. God desires that we be peacemakers, and not peacebreakers.

Proverbs 17:14 & 19 says “The start of an argument is like a small leak in a dam. Stop it before a big fight breaks out.  A troublemaker loves to start arguments. Anyone who likes to brag is asking for trouble.” (ERV)

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

In order for a person to have peace in every area of their life, the person’s life must be pleasing to God. Even in dealing with enemies, God will cause a person to have peace in the midst of confusion that the enemy may be causing. That is why a person’s focus should always be on God and not their enemies, issues or circumstances, in order to not become distracted because distraction can cause worry. A person cannot have peace if they are worried.  

Proverb 16:7 says “When the way you live pleases the Lord, He makes even your enemies live at peace with you.” (NIRV)

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

It is very important to use wisdom when you are in a heated conversation with someone, are disagreeing with someone or even upset with someone in the way that they respond to you. Even though you may be upset or disagree with the other person, you must not allow the individual to pull you out of your character in the way which you respond to them. The best and wisest way is to either not respond at all by being quiet, or either respond in a loving and gentle way to bring peace into the conversation.

Proverbs 15:1-2 says “A gentle answer will calm a person’s anger, but an unkind answer will cause more anger. Wise people use knowledge when they speak, but fools pour out foolishness.” (NCV)

Be blessed, be encouraged

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

Daily, we should not only pray for wisdom, but also discernment and understanding, as well. They all go hand in hand together and are all very important for a person to possess. Even when dealing with an enemy, a foolish and silly person that may cause you to get upset; the gifts of wisdom, discernment and understanding will teach you how to remain calm so you will know how to properly respond and deal with the person.

Proverbs 14:17 & 29 says “Someone with a quick temper does foolish things, but someone with understanding remains calm. Patient people have great understanding, but people with quick tempers show their foolishness.” (NCV)

​”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)

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

God does not want people to worry because worry is not of Him. Worry does nothing but add extra weight on a person’s heart which can also lead to other problems. Whenever a person finds themself taking on the spirit of worry, they should immediately start thinking about the goodness of God by reflecting on things that God has done for them in the past; such as ways He has made, doors He has opened, as well as the times that God has provided for and protected them. The same God He has been in other situations is the same God He is in any situation. Worry is not the solution for any problem; trusting God is what leads to the answer. Because you never know what another person may be going through, you should always speak kind, positive and encouraging words into the life of others; your words may be the very thing that give strength to a person, as well as keep them going.

Proverb 12:25 says “Worry makes a man’s heart heavy. But a kind word cheers him up.” (NIRV)

Be blessed, be encouraged

and have a great day.
