“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.

“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.”

You must always be careful of the people that try to attach and connect themselves to you, especially if the individuals will do anything and everything, even if the things are wrong and can lead you to getting into trouble. There is some trouble a person cannot get out of, and a person who leads others down the wrong path cannot teach anyone anything. 

Proverbs 14:7 & 9 says “Stay away from fools, because they can’t teach you anything. Fools don’t care if they sin, but honest people work at being right.” (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.”

The type of company a person keeps can tell a lot about who a person is, as well as what a person’s lifestyle may be. It is up to each individual person to discern and choose wisely in who they should and should not connect with, as well as who a person should spend their time with. Connecting and spending time with the right people can cause a person to be blessed and walk through many open doors of favor, but connecting and spending time with the wrong people can cause a person to suffer and endure much pain. 

Proverb 13:20 says “Become wise by walking with the wise; hang out with fools and watch your life fall to pieces.” (The MSG Bible)

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

When a person pours and deposits into the life of others; as well as teach, impact, empower and positively influence other people, it is because they care and want the best for those individuals. In life, lessons are taught in order that we may grow, mature, become wise, as well as knowledgeable. Because God desires that no one be ignorant, a person should value and take to heart when someone is sent into their life to help them because the other person’s purpose is to push other people further down the road, so that a person not become stagnant, stunted, stuck nor still.

Proverbs 13:13-14 says “Those who reject what they are taught will pay for it, but those who obey what they are told will be rewarded. The teaching of a wise person gives life. It is like a fountain that can save people from death.” (NCV)

“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)

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

Everything that we give to others should add to their life, and not take away. Even the words in which we speak into the life of others should always be positive, affirming and assuring. Every word we release into the atmosphere and environment should be productive. The words we speak should always be words that help, heal or build others up, and not hurt, kill, destroy or tear others down. 

Proverb 12:18 says “Speak without thinking, and your words can cut like a knife. Be wise, and your words can heal.” (ERV)

Be blessed, be encouraged

and have a great day.

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

There is no one in the world that knows everything. God placed people on earth for one another so that one person could help another. Even in receiving advice and counsel from others, there is wisdom because a person who feels as if they know it all and will not receive nor listen to the advice of others can bring problems upon themselves. If you would trust God, He will never lead you in the wrong direction, even in seeking advice or counsel. God will always lead you to the right person, but the key is to always seek God and not just go to anyone on your own, because God will always send you to the right person for your situation that will be able to give you the best advice and the wisest counsel.

Proverb 12:15 says “The way of a foolish person seems right to him. But a wise person listens to advice.” (NIRV)

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

Sometimes, a person may feel as if the things they do for others is in vain, as if others may not always appreciate them or the things the person may do or the deed that was done. As long as a person does things with a pure heart and the right motive, God will bless the person, and the good and positive deed that a person may do. The same goes for when a person may feel as if others may not receive their correction or words of love and encouragement, but for every positive life producing word spoken into the life of others, a person will be rewarded.

Proverb 12:14 says “People will be rewarded for what they say, and they will also be rewarded for what they do.” (NCV)

Be blessed, be encouraged

and have a great day.
