God Has Your Back, So Why Are You Afraid Of Someone Stabbing You In It?

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

When a person really knows who has their back, then that person does not have to go around daily looking over their shoulder to see who is behind them trying to stab them in their back. Even though people should always use wisdom and discernment by being watchful and mindful of their surroundings and even the people they entertain, as well as who they connect themselves with, no individual should ever walk around living in fear of other people doing hurt or harm to them. Something on the inside of a person will always alert them to let them know when something or someone is not right to be around or that a person does not have their best interest at heart. So until a person gets a warning sign about something or someone, they should continue to live in peace and be happy making every moment of their life count and even when they get a warning about something or someone, they should then pray for wisdom so they will know how to be safe and protected in the process.

Psalm 27:1 says “The Lord is my light and the one who saves me. So why should I fear anyone? The Lord protects my life. So why should I be afraid?” (NCV)

Real Love Straight From The Heart

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

Everyone is required to love others and a person’s love for others should always be real and genuine; straight from the heart. If a person says they love others, but the love is not real, a person can normally see when it is fake and phony, and can see when a person is pretending to love versus having real love. When real love is being displayed, a person will know it because they can feel it.

Romans 12:9-10 says “Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good. Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other.” (NLT)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

Consult God And He Will Let You Know What He Expects

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

Even though we are in the world, we do not have to act like nor should we think like other people in the world. Each person should be their own individual person seeking God in how they should think and view things, as well as themself and not trying to take on the mindset and lifestyle of others. Whenever a person starts trying to copy and imitate the lives of others, that person can become distracted and get off track and can cause themself not to fully live their life in the way in which God expects the person to live, because the person will not know what God expects and requires of them. That is why each day God desires for each individual person to seek Him in regards to what He expects of them, and not what a person does in regards to what they think or feel is best for themself.

Romans 12:2 says “Don’t change yourselves to be like the people of this world, but let God change you inside with a new way of thinking. Then you will be able to understand and accept what God wants for you. You will be able to know what is good and pleasing to Him and what is perfect.” (ERV)

God Always Makes The Best Choice

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

Whenever God calls and chooses a person to do anything, it does not matter what anyone else may think about the person; whether they like it or not, even if they feel as if the particular person is not the person who is fit to carry out the task within their eyes. Other people’s opinions do not count. If God chooses a person for a specific assignment, that is the person in which God feels and knows is capable and well qualified to carry out and fulfill the thing that is being assigned and given to them to do. Because God never makes mistakes nor does God ever change His mind means that whenever God assigns a person to do something, God has put the right person in the right place to carry out the right job. So, it is also whenever God blesses a person in any kind of way; God always blesses people in the way that He sees fit, and no one can take a blessing away from another person, no matter how hard they may try.

Romans 11:29 says “God never changes His mind about the people He calls and the things He gives them.” (NCV)

What Is Your Choice With God? To Stay Or Walk Away

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

As God has promised many times in His word, He will never leave a person nor forsake them; so His word is true because God never lies or says anything just to make a person feel good. Even though God never walks away and out of the life of people, there are many people who walk away from God daily, without realizing and giving thought of how they are really disconnecting and cutting, not only themselves off from God but also disconnecting and cutting themselves from the blessings of God. God will never force a person to stay in relationship with Him; God allows each person to make the choice on their own if they want to be connected to Him or not.

Romans 11:22 says “So you see that God is kind and also very strict. He punishes those who stop following Him. But God is kind to you, if you continue following in His kindness. If you do not, you will be cut off from the tree.” (NCV)

God Wants Us To Trust Him; Not Question Him

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

Because God is in control of everything and everyone, God can allow whatever He wants to happen, as well as stop whatever He desires to stop. If God allows something, He always has a reason, purpose and plan for whatever He may allow. Even though we may not always understand why God allows things to happen in the way which He allows things to be done, we must trust that God knows what He is doing because of His wisdom without trying to question His authority. Trusting God is what is required of us. Whenever a person starts questioning the authority of God with questions such as “why this and why that”, the individual puts themself in the position of disrespecting God. There are some things a person may not never know. If God sees fit for a person to know something, God will reveal it to the person in a way in which it will be very clear, and the things that once did not make sense will begin to make perfect sense.

Romans 9:20-21 says “You are only human, and human beings have no right to question God. An object should not ask the person who made it, “Why did you make me like this?” The potter can make anything he wants to make. He can use the same clay to make one thing for special use and another thing for daily use.” (NCV)

Do The Right Thing

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

There comes a time in life when each individual person will be held accountable for their actions. Every person in life is given a free will to choose. No one can decide for another person, although some people have a tendency to sometimes allow others to influence them which can cause them to be led astray. When a person knows the right thing to do but intentionally does not do it, they are actually committing a sin.

James 4:17 says “Anyone who knows the right thing to do, but does not do it, is sinning.” (NCV)

Wisdom Will Represent A Person’s Lifestyle

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

A person’s life speaks for itself by the way a person carries and represents themself. A person does not have to walk around carrying a sign announcing who they are nor do they have to make it a point of proving to others what their status, title or position is in life. All a person needs to do is just simply be themself by living right, and doing right and honest things, and it will cause other people to know who the person really is because what is on the inside of a person will actually show up on the outside of the person.

James 3:13-15 says “Are there any among you who are really wise and understanding? Then you should show your wisdom by living right. You should do what is good with humility. A wise person does not boast. If you are selfish and have bitter jealousy in your hearts, you have no reason to boast. Your boasting is a lie that hides the truth. That kind of “wisdom” does not come from God. That “wisdom” comes from the world. It is not spiritual. It is from the devil.” (ERV)

Wholesome Words Should Only Be Spoken

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

Some people think they can do anything they want, and it is ok but that is not true. Likewise, it is the same thing when some people speak. Some people think they can say anything they want and it is ok, but that is not true. The words that come out of a person’s mouth should be clean, pure and respectful to others, and most of all pleasing to God. Some people think it is ok to pray, praise and worship God one minute and then the next minute, they think it is ok to curse at someone or even use curse words in their conversation. That is a complete disrespect and unacceptable. Every word that comes out of a person’s mouth should be a word that a person would not be ashamed of and a word that a person should be able to repeat.

James 3:9-12 says “With our tongues we both bless the Lord and Father and curse human beings made in God’s likeness. Blessing and cursing come from the same mouth. My brothers and sisters, it just shouldn’t be this way! Both fresh water and salt water don’t come from the same spring, do they? My brothers and sisters, can a fig tree produce olives? Can a grapevine produce figs? Of course not, and fresh water doesn’t flow from a saltwater spring either.”

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

Wisdom Is Available For Everyone Who Asks For It

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

In order to make it through life successfully, wisdom is needed. The only way that a person can obtain wisdom is through God because only God can give a person wisdom. God desires that everyone has wisdom, although God also knows that there are some individuals who may lack wisdom. Because God desires that no one is foolish, the heart of God is that a person who lacks wisdom will ask Him for wisdom, and will then receive it by faith by trusting and believing and not doubting, and will begin to operate in wisdom in each area of their life.

James 1:5-8 says “If any of you need wisdom, ask God for it. He will give it to you. God gives freely to everyone. He doesn’t find fault. But when you ask, you must believe. You must not doubt. People who doubt are like waves of the sea. The wind blows and tosses them around. A man like that shouldn’t expect to receive anything from the Lord. He can’t make up his mind. He can never decide what to do.” (NIRV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.
