You Have A Role To Play

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

God connects people in the lives of others for many reasons and also in different seasons. The reason is never about us and we never know when the season may suddenly change. The reason in which God does things is always much larger than what we can see, so that is why we should always be open and receptive to what God allows in each season of our life because God is always behind the scenes orchestrating by moving things around and bringing people together so that He may get the glory, as well as be glorified even though we may not be able to see what God is doing. God will make sure that everyone has a role to play, and no one is left out and so it is with a puzzle; there is a place for each piece to properly fit. You do not have to force puzzle pieces to connect together because once you figure out where each piece belongs, they will all connect smoothly and properly, and when the final puzzle piece is inserted, you will end up with a beautiful picture allowing you to be able to see the many details and structures that you could not see while God was strategically working behind the scenes. Always, remember you never have to force anything to make it work or come together. If one thing does not work; maybe that is not the right piece or person that was supposed to be a part of your life or journey at that particular time or season, or even in your life altogether. Instead of trying to force something to happen in your life, go back and pray about it and allow God to show you so that you will not get frustrated by trying to make something work that may not be of God. All things and everything of God have a way of coming together smoothly without having to be forced into place.

Romans 12:4-10 says “Just as our bodies have many parts and each part has a special function, so it is with Christ’s body. We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other. In his grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well. So if God has given you the ability to prophesy, speak out with as much faith as God has given you. If your gift is serving others, serve them well. If you are a teacher, teach well. If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly. 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.

You Are Smarter Than That

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

A person who trusts in themself usually will end up making unwise decisions and choices; sometimes their decisions and choices can even lead them to trouble or even danger because wisdom was not taken into consideration. Because God is wisdom, a person should always put their trust in God instead of themself. Even when God places people in our lives who have experienced and been through things, God desires that we learn from those individuals to keep from making some of the same mistakes those individuals may have made. Trust in God always leads to a positive outcome in any situation.

Proverb 28:26 says “Those who trust in themselves are fools, but those who walk in wisdom are kept safe.” (NIV)

Proverb 28:26 says “If you think you know it all, you’re a fool for sure; real survivors learn wisdom from others.” (MSG)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

God Is In The Blessing Business

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

A person who is honest and has integrity will be blessed and successful with a favorable life. The Hand of God will rest upon the person’s life by connecting the person to the right people so the right doors may open on their behalf. These individuals are the ones who know that if they are patient and wait on God, their blessings are worth the wait. A person who is dishonest normally does not wait on God or anyone else; they will normally do whatever it takes to get the things they want so they can have things quickly and immediately. That is why these individuals are not blessed because getting things other than through God is not considered a blessing, and God does not bless mess.

Proverb 28:20 says “A truthful person will have many blessings, but those eager to get rich will be punished.” (NCV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

Repentance Makes Things Right

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

Each day everyone should find it in their heart to repent. God knows that no one is perfect and therefore, God knows there is a possibility that everyone may do things knowingly, as well as unknowingly. So that a person can be in right standing with God, an individual must always acknowledge whenever they have done, said or thought wrong and then the person must ask God to forgive them of the wrong and must also learn to forgive themself, as well. Repentance is not just an act of confessing wrong, but it also consists of turning away and not going back to the act of wrongdoing. This is what frees a person from having hidden sin in their heart.

Proverb 28:13 says ” Whoever hides their sins will not be successful, but whoever confesses their sins and stops doing wrong will receive mercy.” (ERV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

You Hold The Key To Your Blessings

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

God places people in our lives to not only help us, but to keep us grounded and focused so that we may keep moving in the right direction, and do that which is right from that which is wrong. The individuals that are divinely placed within our lives should also be holding us accountable to let us know whenever we are getting off course or off track because the actions of a person in whether they are obedient or disobedient will be what determines how a person will be blessed; for God only honors obedience.

Proverb 28:9 says “If you refuse to obey what you have been taught, your prayers will not be heard.” (NCV)

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.

Only God Really Knows What Will Happen In Your Life

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

Even though a person may make plans from one day to the next, no one really knows what will actually happen throughout the course of their day. When people put their life in God’s Hands, God’s plans will always end up working out better for a person than a person’s plans could ever work for themself. Though you may not always understand or totally agree with the plans of God; God always has a way of planning and organizing things for your good. God knows that a person can only plan for the present, but because God knows everything about a person, God can plan the whole future of a person at one time, even in one day. That is what you call “perfect planning.”

Proverb 27:1 says “Don’t brag about tomorrow, for you don’t know what a day will bring.” (CEB)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.

The Gift Of Discernment Is A Very Important Gift

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

When you have the gift of discernment, you will be able to see and know when things are right or wrong, and this even includes people who may pretend, as if they are for you when really they are against you. Not only will you see and know it; in time God will reveal how the person really feels about you to other people, as well. God has His own way of allowing people to expose themselves. The best part about the gift of wisdom is knowing that you do not have to say anything; all you need to do is just keep your eyes and ears open, and God will handle everything else on your behalf.

Proverbs 26:24-26 says “Those who hate you may try to fool you with their words, but in their minds they are planning evil. People’s words may be kind, but don’t believe them, because their minds are full of evil thoughts. Lies can hide hate, but the evil will be plain to everyone.” (NCV)

Do Not Play The Role Of A Fool

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

Whenever a foolish, unwise or ignorant comment or response is made or directed at you within a conversation, the proper way to respond is by not responding, at all . Even though you may want to respond, there is no need of you looking or sounding as foolish as the other person. Allow your silence to speak for you because even though you may be quiet, you are still relaying a message. 

Proverbs 26:4-5 says “Don’t answer fools when they speak foolishly, or you will be just like them. Answer fools when they speak foolishly, or they will think they are really wise.” (NCV)

Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.
