Choose Wisdom

I call to you, to all of you! I raise my voice to all people. You simple people, use good judgment. You foolish people, show some understanding.
Proverbs 8:4‭-‬5 NLT


“To you, O men, I call, And my voice is directed to the sons of men. O you naive or inexperienced [who are easily misled], understand prudence and seek astute common sense; And, O you [closed-minded, self-confident] fools, understand wisdom [seek the insight and self-discipline that leads to godly living].
Proverbs 8:4‭-‬5 AMP

Welcome back ,as you know mostly on this page we discuss Wisdom how to attain wisdom .Still the main focus is to deduce all our facts from the Bible.Like it or not it is wisdom that sets you apart not educational background or material possessions.

Wisdom is really an important subject which we try to explore always .Today I had to paste 2 different translations for the same verse for it to be easy to digest .

One thing you should have noticed is that the Bible is always stating that Foolish people are noticed in their actions ,how they walk or behave in situations whereas the wise normally it is their language and approach that sets them apart.

The Bible is always stating that Wisdom can be attained by simple men and that is our goal to reveal the mystery .If simple man can attain wisdom and the foolish turn from their way the world will be a better place.

The Amplified version here is describing a common man as someone easily misled or influenced,naive and inexperienced so the Bible here has shown us that Not all men are the same , man full of doubt is a common man .An inexperienced man is always seeking confirmation from friends or men before taking any action Joyce Meyer wrote about this dilemma in her book Approval Addiction I love her books.

The approval dilemma is a reason why did not do certain things for God ,because you feared appearing like a fool to your image .It could be certain things you did not do because of your status .In my previous posts I am always reminding you that societal status are just but an illusion your goal in life should be in alignment with God’s design for your life . Appraisals from human beings are not to be trusted , Reaching your full potential is something you have to do , with or without anyone praising you. Jesus had 12 disciples his goal was to save the whole world ,the same 12 people did change what the world knew.

John the Baptist once questioned Jesus on his ministry ,he send his disciples to ask Jesus why his disciples were not fasting .Jesus here leads by example in his response to John the Baptist . He simply told them that they had no reason to fast.

Common men face the problem of identity , because they want to be identified with certain material possessions, certain social status instead of them giving identity to these things. God made the garden of Eden ,he made everything else but he left the part of naming things to Adam .Adam that hasn’t changed a bit ,you are the one who gives meaning and names to these items and not vice versa .That’s why here the Bible is saying use common sense.

Lot , his wife and kids were given a simple instruction not to look back but the wife was still attached to the past. You don’t need to be attached to all these things , Abraham was told to sacrifice his only son ,he took the task without questions asked .What you are attached to determines how much of an asset you are to God.

You came alone and naked to the world naked and naked you will go .,so why are depressed you don’t have to be depressed just do your main duties as a good steward God is big rewarder for the diligence.

I AM THAT I AM Jesus said , you are not your money , you are not your friends , you are not where you were born ,you are not your town,you are not your clothing ,use common sense you are bigger than all that , you are not your complexion , you are not your qualifications all these things don’t define you ,you are not the house you live in ,seek knowledge it is your real self which attracts these things after the real self has been transformed and not the other way round .it is written in the Bible ” seek ye first the kingdom of God and all these things will be added into you ” but now many preachers are teaching people that to be rich should be your goal .

I am not against prosperity gospel ,but the real self is what God wants first ,he blesses everyone who ask for blessings ,but it is our heart he is after ,the real self should understand his true identity ,your position in Christ determines your success.

I will continue this topic some other day

Shalom

Lack is not your portion

The Lord is my shepherd; I have all that I need.
Psalms 23:1 NLT

Welcome back again ,Today I want to discuss on the subject of lack please feel free to add anything on the comment section .Lack is unpleasant ,you can’t marry if you can’t afford to pay lobola right .Lack drives people to go for shortcuts ,but why do people lack ?

Can we trace lack to a violation of certain laws ?

If we find people lacking some wisdom or knowledge to deal with a pressing issue , who is to blame?

Weak people are normally known for blame shifting , they fail a subject at school they blame a teacher ,if they divorce they blame the former spouse weaklings isn’t it .

Here David is saying ‘the Lord is my shepherd ,I have all I need ‘ If he is a shepherd all it means is as a sheep you don’t choose where you will feed ,drink and sleep all that your shepherd takes care of isn’t it.

David is making one point clear here ,with God as your shepherd the word lack disappears from your dictionary ,that means lack results from living outside the influence of a shepherd .

In the book of Proverbs it’s written that whoever lacks wisdom must simply ask mmm .So that brings us back to my question ,why do you lack ? Or why are you permitting lack to rule over your life ? Do you lack happiness, but why aren’t you happy ?

Lack is derived from moving away from the Shepherd’s influence ,why do you keep on looking for answers from elsewhere, is your quest for answers leading you to ruins turn back to God . All the answers are in the Bible.

Jesus said that we mustn’t divorce that’s a biblical perspective so divorcing on its own it’s a sign that someone followed advice from heathens,So you are not happy in your marriage ,but did the Bible say we should marry for happiness? Funny isn’t it , marriage is obedience to God but isn’t it the person next door is seeking fulfillment from a spouse or a career … Wholesome was never intended to be attained from a relationship ,career or any other material object ,you were created whole or fully packaged but you are now attached to certain things thus you have given them power over your life .So is it that you lack something or you have given other people and goods to be gods in your life.

The moment you start chasing your own interests and not of your creator , terrible things are bound to happen .God is my shepherd I am simply his flock ,my fulfillment comes from belonging to him ,in Him there is life and I am content with that.

Jesus Christ died on the cross so that we will have our original identity in God,have you ever imagined how it would make God feel if you will let him play his role in your life as your Shepherd ,all the problems you are facing today they will vanish .

Pray to God ,you need to have a proper revelation of him ,have time in Prayer and I repeat Pray !he will reveal himself to you .Pray , sanctify the Lord your God you have all you need in God.

Shalom
