30 Days of Thanks: Day 25 – Wisdom

On this last week of November I will be sharing snippets from my 30 Days of Thanks E-Devotional.

Today I’m sharing Day 25: WISDOM 

Day Twenty-Five: Today’s day of thanks is focused on Wisdom.

On this 25th day of thanks, we want to give thanks for Wisdom.  Wisdom is what you are going to need in order to strategically live a life fulfilled with purpose.  Wisdom gives insight, discernment, knowledge, and understanding.  Wisdom is worth so much more than you can imagine.  The bible says it is better than rubies and all things that are desired are not to be compared to it.Can you imagine?  

All the things you desire can not be compared to wisdom!  For those of you who went out bearing the cold, the hustle and the bustle and chaos of Black Thursday, Friday, and Saturday or anything other BIG holiday weekend, anything you desired and purchased this past weekend, cannot compare to wisdom.  Although you can’t watch, wear or ride in wisdom, it is the best thing you can give yourself.

You WANT to have wisdom.  Wisdom gives you peace to make sound decisions in the midst of a chaotic storm.  Wisdom along with knowledge and understanding help keep you out of relationships (personal/professional) that mean you no good.  Wisdom will cause you to keep your mouth shut when you have the power, authority and skill to shut someone down.  Wisdom says not now, he/she isn’t worth it.  Again, you want to have wisdom in your life.

We are so thankful for WISDOM.  Proverbs 3:13 says ‘Happy is the man that finds wisdom and the man that gets understanding.‘  When you find wisdom and get understanding, there is a happiness you have which can’t be explained.  Now you may be saying I don’t have as much wisdom as I’d like to.  Well that is what is so great about God, because in James 1:5, he lets us know that if we lack wisdom, we can ask and God will give it to us freely and liberally.  YES… all you have to do is ASK.

If you don’t have as much wisdom as you’d like, you have not because you ask not. Ask and it shall be given to you, seek and you shall find and knock and the door will be opened (Matt 7:7).

It is just that simple. 

So on this day we are thankful for wisdom, knowledge and understanding.  We are thankful that with it we are able to make better decisions regarding our lives, our families, our careers, our health, etc.  We are thankful also because it is with wisdom that we will be able to live the abundant life God has prepared for us.   Every decision we make will not always be easy as pie and we will need a foundation upon which to base our decisions.  That foundation is the wisdom we develop and hold near to us which is based on God’s word and His principles.  We want to be able to make the right decision at the right time with the right people in the right place.  We are grateful that wisdom will help us align ourselves with those who can help us do and be all that God desires for us to be.

Lastly, God’s word says that the beginning of wisdom is the fear of the Lord.  Wisdom begins when we learn to reverence God for who and what he is in our lives.  We can’t deny that.  God is the author and finisher of our faith.  It starts and ends with Him and for that we are also thankful.  Never forget the role that God plays in your life as it relates to wisdom or any of God’s other principles.  It is wise to reverence God for who and what He is, this allows him to be for you who He desires to be…. ALL THAT AND THEN SOME.

Now unto Him, who is able to do exceeding abundantly above all you can ask or think (Ephesians 3:20).  This is the God that wisdom unleashes when we keep Him FIRST.

Journal Assignment:
Take some time to really ponder on the wisdom you possess and then write about your thoughts regarding wisdom.  Are you using it to its full capacity?  Have you made decisions not using wisdom?  How did that impact you and those around you?  How would your life be different if all or even more of your decisions were made with the wisdom, knowledge and understanding God has given you?  Spend time today giving thanks for wisdom.  For it is worth more than you know.  Hold on to it and don’t abuse it.
Prayer: 
Lord on this day we thank you for wisdom.  We thank you for a gift that many people have access to but never use.  Lord we are grateful because in your word it says that if we lack wisdom, we can ask and you will give it to us freely.  What an awesome gift!  Lord as we encounter trials, tribulations, and challenging situations, let us use the wisdom that is so readily available to us.  We now know that if we are unsure, we can boldly ask for wisdom to make every decision that comes our way. Thank you for reassuring us that everything we need we have, all we have to do is access it. Lastly, Lord we are also thankful for knowledge and understanding through wisdom.  Help us to use it wisely. AMEN.

Wise Wednesday – Motivational Minute 406

 

It’s Wise Wednesday!

Today’s Motivational Minute is..

SEEK WISE COUNSEL!

On this Wise Wednesday, make sure you are connecting with the right people who can give you the right information.  Nothing like sharing something with something, looking to gain insight, and getting nothing in return.  When you are at a strategic place in your life, you have to know and understand WHO you have in your circle and WHO is able to give you wise counsel.  These people understand where you are going and have the knowledge, expertise, or spiritual insight to help you get there.  Now keep in mind that you can’t share everything with everyone, but you should have one or two people you can go to outside of seeking God for direction, who can give you the wise counsel needed to keep you on track or get you back on track.

YOUR TURN… on this Wise Wednesday, tell me … have you shared something with someone only to walk away from the conversation thinking you were no better off than before it began?  Do you have a wise counsel in your circle of influence?  How have they been helpful in making strategic decisions in your life?

Share your thoughts in the comments section. I would love to hear from you. There may be someone who just might be blessed by what you share!

Here’s to you living life IN & ON Purpose…

Wise Wednesday – Motivational Minute 394

20130522-085240.jpg

It’s Wise Wednesday!

Today’s Motivational Minute is …

Use what you know!

It is said that wisdom is the application of knowledge. It’s not what you know but how you use what you know. Many of us get great information but never transition to application. What’s the use in having all of this great knowledge if you won’t put it to use? Have you thought about how you can use your own personal experiences to help someone else or even yourself? Stop looking for more information and more knowledge, and just use what you have.

YOUR TURN… on this Wise Wednesday, tell me this, are you sitting on a wealth of knowledge and experience that you have yet to use? Do you keep looking for new information, new knowledge and new experiences but never actually put anything you learn to use? How come?

Share your thoughts in the comments section. I would love to hear from you. There may be someone who just might be blessed by what you share!

Wise Wednesday – Motivational Minute 389

It’s Wise Wednesday!

Today’s Motivational Minute is …

BE CAREFUL who you share your dreams and aspirations with!

Use wisdom with whom you share your inner most desires.  The very people who say they are for you may be against you.  Those we call ‘haters’ or wolves in sheep’s clothing.  Then there are some who to no fault of their own try to talk you out of ‘BIG’ because they are caught in ‘small.’   They actually love you, want the best for you and may even share concern for you but because they aren’t apart of your future unintentionally try to hinder you from pursuing the purpose of God because they have no clue they will stay in your past.

Be mindful

&

Use wisdom about what you share and when you share it.

Everything God gives you isn’t meant to be shared at the time the deposit is made.

YOUR TURN… on this Wise Wednesday, tell me, have there been times that you shared something out of sheer excitement with someone who totally didn’t get the vision and or idea that God had given you?  Was the reaction out of sheer ignorance or did you sense a little bit of ‘haterade’ in the atmosphere?  How did you handle it?  Have you since limited what you share with this person or these people? 

Share your thoughts in the comments section. I would love to hear from you. There may be someone who just might be blessed by what you share!

Wise Wednesday – Motivational Minute 361

It’s Wise Wednesday!!

Today’s Motivational Minute is…

Do you trust God enough with your life and purpose to wait on Him?  If not, you will end up waiting for Him to fix your mess in HIS time.  Use wisdom and trust that God knows what He’s doing in your life.  Maybe ….just maybe the reason things are taking so long is because you keep trying to do what only God can do in your life.

Just admit that you can’t do it and trust that God Can.

Let go and TRUST HIM!!!

YOUR TURN…  on this Wise Wednesday, tell me what you need to take your hands off of and let God handle?  What are you afraid of?  Why won’t you just let him do what you know He can do?

Share your thoughts below in the comments section.  I would love to hear from you.  There may be someone who just might be blessed by what you share!
