Today’s Blog: Are the answers straightforward?
TODAY’S PROVERB: All of them are straightforward to the discerning,and right to those who find knowledge. Proverbs 8:9, TLV
Prior to earnestly seeking God’s wisdom, I had a lot of unanswered questions. Honestly, we will always have questions that we can’t answer. Whether the worldly or spiritual type, our finite brains will struggle with these. But, I’m talking about the answerable questions. Should I do this? What decision is the most wise and prudent? Those were questions I should have been able to answer, but I couldn’t.
Fortunately, there were people in my life who were wise. The answers to my questions seemed so straightforward to them. They were discerning and able to spot patterns in situations where I only saw chaos.
I wanted that. Badly.
But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all without hesitation and without reproach; and it will be given to him.JACOB (HALF-BROTHER OF JESUS), JAMES 1:5, TLV
Today’s proverb reminds me of the real and exciting journey of wisdom. For me, it was life-changing. And it continues today after nearly 20 years.
New revelations and understanding. Less drama. More prudent decisions that have already reaped blessings over the years. All these things that make an abundant life for the followers of Yeshua and children of the Most High God. Not too shabby, right?
