The Quality of Wisdom
“I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths. When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straitened; and when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble.” (Proverbs 4:11-12)
Today’s Morsel: You know, I have come to realize that when God places His Spirit in us, He gives us everything that we need. Paul tells us that Jesus Christ is the wisdom of God and the power of God. So when Christ is in us, we have both wisdom and power. Wisdom to make right choices and decisions, avoid danger, and correct our situations. We have the power to stand against evil, to walk away from people, and we have the power to even turn the other cheek. Think about it. As Solomon states, “When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul; Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee” (Proverbs 2:10-11) It has been said that “Wisdom is the quality that keeps you from getting into situations where you need it.” Think about it, wisdom will prevent us from getting into situations that can cause us harm and danger. So many things came with our salvation. If you do not know what came with yours, you might want to recheck the book.
Sing: Deeper, deeper in the love of Jesus, daily let me go; Higher, higher in the school of wisdom, More of grace to know.
O deeper, yet I pray, and higher every day; And wiser, blessed Lord; In Thy precious holy word.
Thought For Today: “Wisdom is the quality that keeps you from getting into situations where you need it.”
