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

There is power in every word that is released out of a person’s mouth. The words a person speak can either bring life or death to their situations or circumstances. Words can either heal or kill, as well as tear down or build up. Only wise, positive, encouraging and inspirational words should be released into the atmosphere and environment because these are the type of words that give life to people, to situations and circumstances. 

Proverbs 18:20 & 21 says “You will have to live with the consequences of everything you say. What you say can preserve life or destroy it; so you must accept the consequences of your words.” (Good News Bible) 

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 are so mean, evil and hateful that will go out of their way to do and say any and everything to hurt others. People who intentionally hurt others will never be blessed. Nothing good will ever come to them because while they are busy trying to hurt and destroy others, they are only really hurting and destroying themselves. God only blesses those who have pure hearts and right motives.

Proverb 17:20 says “A person with an evil heart will find no success, and the person whose words are evil will get into trouble.” (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.”

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)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

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

A person who listens and learns from a warning is a very wise person. They make things easy on themself by learning from the mistakes of others, in order to keep themself out of trouble, as well as to save themself from misery, heartache and pain. A person who will not listen nor take heed to instructions and warnings only sets themself up for trouble, along with pain. A warning will always come before destruction. 

Proverb 17:10 says “A wise person will learn more from a warning than a fool will learn from a hundred lashings.” (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.” 

People who are wise will always find themselves being blessed, successful and favored. They are so wise to the point of always trying to do what is right versus what is wrong, as well as doing whatever they can to stay focused so that they may stay out of trouble because they know that there is some trouble that they will not be able to get themselves out of, as well as can possibly lead to their death.

Proverb 15:24 says “Wise people’s lives get better and better. They avoid whatever would cause their death.” (NCV)

Be blessed, be encouraged

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

Everything a person does is known because God sees, hears and knows everything. Nothing can, nor will it ever get past or hidden from God because God is all-knowing. God sees, hears and knows the good, as well as the bad and God knows about all of a person’s rights, as well as their wrongs. Even before a person thinks a thought, says a word or does a deed, God already knows.

Proverbs 15:3 & 11 says “The Lord sees what happens everywhere. He watches everyone, good and evil. The Lord knows everything, even what happens in the place of death. So surely He knows what people are thinking.” (ERV)

Be blessed, be encouraged

“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

and have a great day.

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

If a person is not open and receptive to learn, they will not be knowledgeable of the things that are, and have been taught to them, no matter how many times someone has been, and is willing to teach them. Everyone plays the role of a student at some time or another in their life. Just because a person may go to school does not mean the person is there to learn. If a person’s mind is closed, they will never know or understand anything that has been taught to them, no matter how many times the person may step into a classroom. 

Proverb 14:18 says “Fools are rewarded with more foolishness. Smart people are rewarded with knowledge.” (ERV)

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)

Be blessed, be encouraged

and have a great day.
