Sometimes, You Have To Be The Bigger Person

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

There may be times when you may find yourself in a conversation with someone, in which the conversation may seem like it is turning in a wrong direction. Before things get too out of control, sometimes you may have to be the bigger person and simply walk away. It may not be easy, but it could easily save you much more heartache and pain.

Proverb 17:14 says “Starting a quarrel is like opening a floodgate, so stop before the argument gets out of control.” (GW)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

What Do You Think

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

A positive mind creates positive thoughts, as well as positive ideas. Maintaining a focused and positive mindset will help a person see and hear clearly, as well as think wisely before making quick hasty decisions that the person may regret. Thoughts have a way of controlling a person’s life; that is why it is very important for people to take control of their thoughts. Praying over your mind daily is one of the best and wisest ways for a person to take control of their own thoughts.

Proverbs 4:23 & 25 says “Above all, be careful what you think because your thoughts control your life.  Keep your eyes on the path, and look straight ahead.” (ERV)

Everyone Stands In Need Of Help

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

God blesses people, not just for themselves but so they can also be a blessing to others, as well. God desires that when we see others who may be in need, and we can help meet the need to be of assistance, and not turn our backs and walk away. No one should ever think they could be exempt from being in the place of being in a position of not needing the help or assistance of others, at any time.

Proverbs 3: 27-28 says “Do everything you possibly can for those who need help. If your neighbor needs something you have, don’t say, “Come back tomorrow.” Give it to him immediately.” (ERV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

God’s Voice Is The Real Voice

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

There will be times when everyone will need a word from God in regards to situations or circumstances that may be going on within their life. People will have questions, doubts, concerns, want confirmations or even answers to their prayers. In order to hear from God, a person must be familiar and know the voice of God. A person who does not know the voice of God can be easily led astray by other voices that will tell the person anything that the person may desire to hear, even knowing that some of the things spoken may not even be true. Voices that are not of God are nothing but a trap designed by the enemy to confuse, distract and deceive a person. God is the only one that can, and will reveal and speak truth every time to a person, because He is the only one that knows everything about a person and their situation, at all times.

Isaiah 8:19-20 says “Some people say, “Ask the mediums and fortune-tellers, who whisper and mutter, what to do.” But I tell you that people should ask their God for help. Why should people who are still alive ask something from the dead? You should follow the teachings and the agreement with the Lord. The mediums and fortune-tellers do not speak the word of the Lord, so their words are worth nothing.” (NCV)

God Is The Only True And Real Promise Keeper

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

Wisdom should always be used in communicating, even with God. A person should always think, even before they release words unto God in prayer. You never want to say anything that you will regret, such as making promises to God. Whenever a person makes a promise to God; God expects the person to do as they said. It is better for a person not to make a vow or promise than to make a vow or promise anything to God, and then not do as they said they would. God never goes back on His word to people and God wants and deserve the same respect in return. 

Ecclesiastes 5:2&4-5 says “Don’t be too quick to speak. Don’t be in a hurry to say anything to God. He is in heaven. You are on earth. So use only a few words when you speak. When you make a promise to God, don’t wait too long to carry it out. He isn’t pleased with foolish people. So do what you have promised. It is better to make no promise at all than to make a promise and not keep it.” (NIRV)

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)

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

When a person’s life is pleasing to God; God will position Himself to hear each and every one of the person’s prayers. God will keep His ears open to listen to the requests and cries of the person so that He may meet the needs and desires of the person. When a person is disobedient and does not please God, the individual will not be able to get God’s attention because God will close His ears to the person, not hearing anything the person has to say. The only prayer God wants to hear from a disobedient person is a prayer of repentance. 

Proverb 15:29 says “The Lord does not listen to the wicked, but He hears the prayers of those who do right.” (NCV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

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

Sometimes, other people may intentionally insult or offend you just to see if they can get you to respond or react. Even though the insult or offense may hurt you; sometimes it is best to ignore the person, the insult or offense and allow God to deal with the person. Trying to defend yourself can make the situation worse, and can also cause you to act out of character, and no one is worth pulling you out of your character. Even in the midst of hurt and pain, sometimes your response must be to stand still, be quiet and allow God to fight for you.

Proverb 12:16 says “A fool is quick-tempered, but a wise person stays calm when insulted.” (NLT)

Be blessed, be encouraged

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

There is wisdom in knowing when to speak and when to be quiet. Too much talking can cause a person to say the wrong things, which can then lead a person to get into trouble. Sometimes being quiet is the wisest thing a person can do because it can save the individual a lot of heartache and pain. Saying less and praying more is one of the posture positions that everyone should try. This position brings positive results every time.  

Proverb 10:19 says “A person who talks too much gets into trouble. A wise person learns to be quiet.” (ERV)

Be blessed, be encouraged

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

It does not matter how smart a person may be, even a wise person knows not to tell everything that they know. There are times when a person must know what to share and what not to share, as well as whom to share information with. If a person prays daily asking God to word their mouths and tame their tongues, as well as speak through their conversations, it will cause a person to speak only what is necessary. The person will not give too much information nor too little information, but only enough information to the right person and people.

Proverb 10:14 says “The wise don’t tell everything they know, but the foolish talk too much and are ruined.” (NCV)

Be blessed, be encouraged

and have a great day.
