Humility advertises wisdom; it shows in the quality of your conversation and actions. This distinguishes you with the reputation of someone who is acquainted with wisdom and skilled in understanding. (Mirror Bible)
Is wisdom evident in your life?
As you live your life, you don’t have to tell someone you are kind or caring or considerate; they recognize it when they deal with you. The wisdom, God gives, will also be evident in your life, as you gain it. Wisdom allows you to see things as God sees them. If you are willing to look through God’s eyes, your life and the way you live it will change. How and why? Because your choices will change, which will directly affect your life.
You will no longer desire what you think is best, you will want what God says is best.
Luke 9:23 And He said to all, If any person wills to come after Me, let him deny himself [disown himself, forget, lose sight of himself and his own interests, refuse and give up himself] and take up his cross daily and follow Me [cleave steadfastly to Me, conform wholly to My example in living and, if need be, in dying also]. (Amplified Bible, Classic Edition AMPC)
Your responses to circumstances and situations will change.
1 Peter 3:9 Never retaliate when someone treats you wrongly, nor insult those who insult you, but instead, respond by speaking a blessing over them—because a blessing is what God promised to give you. (The Passion Translation TPT)
Wisdom gives you a godly response to those things that used to make you angry.
Ephesians 4:26 When angry, do not sin; do not ever let your wrath (your exasperation, your fury or indignation) last until the sun goes down. (Amplified Bible, Classic Edition AMPC)
Wisdom gives eliminates your need to retaliate.
Romans 12:19 Beloved, don’t be obsessed with taking revenge, but leave that to God’s righteous justice.[a] For the Scriptures say: “Vengeance is mine, and I will repay,” says the Lord. (The Passion Translation TPT)
Wisdom speaks to you when you feel sad, discouraged, depressed, etc.
Psalm 42:11 Why are you down in the dumps, dear soul? Why are you sad and crying the blues? Fix my eyes on God—soon I’ll be praising again. He puts a smile on my face. He’s my God. (The Message MSG, edited)
As your responses and your choices continue to change, your thoughts will change. You learned fundamentals of wisdom on August 14; take a moment and read it again.
For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: (Proverbs 23:7a)
Godly Wisdom will change what you think about, give you understanding and be apparent in your life.
Please agree with me as I pray:
Father, I want Your wisdom. Your wisdom demands I choose You above me. Your wisdom requires me to love others as You love them. Your wisdom helps me to see others as You see them. Your wisdom helps me to discern right from wrong. Your wisdom changes my thinking, and therefore, my actions. I will become what I think about. I want Your wisdom to be evident in my life…
