“Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. Don’t be impressed with your own wisdom. Instead, fear the Lord and turn away from evil”.Proverbs 3:5-7 (NLT)
If you really want God’s blessing on your life, you have to depend on God’s wisdom and not what your feelings say or what your gut says. Trust in the Lord and not on your own understanding.
So how do you get God’s wisdom?
You pray. You talk to God, and you let him talk to you by reading the Bible. That’s how you get God’s wisdom.
The Bible says in James 1:5, “If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you” (NIV).
God doesn’t want you to make foolish mistakes. He doesn’t want you to hit dead ends or go through failure after failure in life. God wants you to succeed. He wants you to make wise decisions with your time and your money and your relationships.
It’s not like you’re waiting on him for his help. He’s waiting on you! God says, “Hey! I’m here. I’ll give you wisdom, and I’ll give it generously. I’m not grudging about it. I want to make you wise. You’ve just got to ask.”
If you want to be blessed, you’ve got to get God’s wisdom. And if you want God’s wisdom, you’ve got to get in God’s Word.
