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.

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.

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.

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.

“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)

Be blessed, be encouraged

“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)

Be blessed, be encouraged

and have a great day.
