DAILY ENCOURAGEMENT WEDNESDAY – WISDOM.

A wise man learns by the experience of others. An ordinary man learns by his own experience. A fool learns by nobody's experience. - Source Unknown.

But make up your mind not to worry beforehand how you will defend yourselves. For I will give you words and wisdom that none of your adversaries will be able to resist or contradict. – Luke 21:14-15. TNIV

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. - James 1:5. TNIV

Wisdom is the reward you get for a lifetime of listening when you would have preferred to talk. - Doug Larson.

There are so many Christians who lack wisdom, but this should never be. We need to take on board the teachings of Jesus and Peter, to get this principle set resolutely in our minds, so embedded in our thinking that it becomes an established principle, and that we always depend upon God for our wisdom whenever we have trials or tribulations, even in our everyday living.

Both Jesus and Peter, used this principle in their lives, and if we use them we will be victorious in our walk with Christ, so much so that even our enemies will be dumfounded and defeated. The Holy Spirit will help us to accomplish this.

Wisdom is the power to see and the inclination to choose the best and highest goal, together with the surest means of attaining it. - J.I. Packer.

Lacking in wisdom? Ask God.

Loving Father, by the power of the Holy Spirit, help me to rely absolutely on you, that in my time of need I may ask for your wisdom. I ask this in the wonderful name of Jesus, and for His glory. Amen.

Be encouraged!
