Hey there, world changer!

I’ve realized early on that wisdom is the key to experiencing an abundant, rich and satisfying life. At the core of every human heart, there is a longing to find true happiness. Our definition of what brings happiness differs, but the desire in and of itself isn’t a bad thing. It comes from God. But we have a very real enemy that does everything in his power to bring us happiness in ways that displease and dishonor God. And that’s where the problem lies.

Wisdom, practically speaking, is having experience, knowledge and good judgment. Wisdom is what helps us make sound, good decisions that align with God’s word. We need wisdom to help us navigate life.

Proverbs 3:16-26 says, “WIsdom offers you long life, as well as wealth and honor. Wisdom can make your life pleasant and lead you safely through it. Those who become wise are happy; wisdom will give them life. The Lord created the earth by his wisdom; by his knowledge, he set the sky in place. His wisdom caused the rivers to flow and the clouds to give rain tot he earth. My child, hold on to wisdom and insight. Never let them get away with you. They will prove you with life – a pleasant and happy life. You can go safely on your way and never even stumble. You will not be afraid when you go to bed and you will sleep soundly through the night. You will not have to worry about sudden disasters, such as come on the wicked like a storm. The Lord will keep you safe. He will not let you fall into a trap.”

Wisdom does not always come naturally to us and sometimes we need to ask God for his guidance and direction. James 1:5 says, “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.”

This “good life” the Bible talks about is real, but it requires us to be all in with Jesus. And, we need wisdom that comes from Him to help guide our lives forward.
