Verse Of The Day : For whoever finds me, finds life, and will obtain favor from the LORD. But he who sins against me wrongs his own soul. All those who hate me love death. Proverbs 8:35,36 (NHEB)
Thought of The Day : Life is a nightmare where the heart is empty of wisdom.
LISTEN : Love for wisdom is love for honour, success, life and the like. Wisdom does not travel alone, but with success, honour, life and the like. My dear, be passionate about wisdom. What is wisdom? Wisdom in a nutshell is good sense. It is the right application of knowledge and the ability to understand what others do not understand. Life is nothing without wisdom. Wisdom gives meaning to life; hence, to be bankrupt of wisdom is to be bankrupt of real life. As a matter of fact, life is a nightmare where the heart is empty of wisdom. Wisdom plays a vital role in all aspects of life. This is why the Scripture commands us to gain wisdom no matter what it takes. The Bible says,
“Wisdom is supreme. Get wisdom. Yes, though it costs all your possessions, get understanding.”
That is how vital wisdom is. When you gain wisdom, especially divine wisdom you have gained life. Wisdom opens doors and releases favour on those who love ‘her.’ To ignore wisdom is to live at the mercy of circumstances. Beloved, wisdom is calling today. “Her voice” is not hidden if you can open your ears (Proverbs 8:1). God is speaking to you through nature, circumstances, etc., learn and be wise. Above all, we have the word of God to study, meditate and obtain wisdom. God’s word is wisdom bank, so, explore it. Do not reject wisdom, for anyone who rejects wisdom loves misery and death. Be wise!
What Should We Do With This Message?
1. Learn and meditate the word of God to gain wisdom.
2. Be devoted to the search for wisdom, and never give up until you gain it.
3. Learn to properly apply your knowledge and seek counsel when necessary.
4. Be a lover of wisdom and demonstrate it in all you do.
Prayer : Heavenly Father, I thank you because wisdom belongs to you. Bless me with wisdom and understanding to fulfill your will, in Jesus’ name, amen.
A Word Of Blessing : Today I speak on your life. May God bless you with wisdom and understanding. May His favours locate you, in Jesus’ name, amen.
Reflection : When wisdom is gained, life is gained ; but to ignore wisdom is to live at the mercy of circumstances.
Quote : “Love for wisdom is love for honour, success, life and the like; For wisdom does not travel alone, but with success, honour and life.”
