The Wise Listen and Fools Despise Wisdom and Instruction! So as Believers…
Why Are You Not Using the Wisdom that God has left you with, to WIN at This Thing Called Life?
Are You WISE Or Are You A FOOL?
Well first, let’s identify what wisdom is and what a fool is.
Fool: A person who acts unwisely or imprudently.
A person who lacks good sense or judgment: a stupid or silly person.
A person lacking in judgment or prudence.
Wise: A person having or showing experience, knowledge, and good judgment.
A person who become alert to or aware of something.
Wisdom- Properly, having knowledge; hence, having the power of discerning and judging correctly, or of discriminating between what is true and what is false; between what is fit and proper, and what is improper.
Discrete and judicious in the use or applications of knowledge; choosing laudable ends, and the best means to accomplish them. This is to be practically wise.
For the past week I have been mediating on the book of Isaiah & Proverbs and it just amazing to me how God’s word is so on point, and how He has done everything warn, alarm, alert, prepare and teach His people.
Not just, telling His people to obey His word but He sent His son (Jesus Christ) to show us.
How to avoid being caught up in the destruction of this world.
Every time I listen or read the word of God it just amazes me of the insight that God had on this world, (after all He did make it) and the fact that He left His word here with us, as a road map and instruction guide on life, just amazes me even more…
It’s like he left us the answer sheet; to this test on life…
And all we have to do is follow His instructions and accurately do what He say in His word, in order to live and not die in this dying world.
It’s actually funny when you think about it because; that means that we can actually win at this thing called life if we truly desire to.
Just think about it…
The word of God is the answer to any problem that will arise in your life; all you have to do is study the word of God and apply it in your everyday life, from day to day. That’s it, that’s all….
“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.”
So automatically we are on the winning team, if we rolling with God, because God knows all that was, that is and that’s to come…
For you, for me and for all who follows Him.
So we shouldn’t be lead astray and sold a dream by the enemy; right! We should be victorious in this thing, WINNERS, right!
Not only should we be victorious; winning in life, right here on earth, but after that; we win some more because we gain eternal life. Which should be our ultimate goal.
For those who find me find life and receive favor from the Lord.
1 John 5:13
I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.
What are these things? These things, are God’s Commandments and His Word…
But only if you love Him!
And, I don’t know about you, but…
I LUV-UM, I LUV-UM, I LUV-UM in Erica Campbell’s voice!
1 John 5:3
3 Loving God means keeping his commandments, and his commandments are not burdensome. 4 For every child of God defeats this evil world, and we achieve this victory through our faith. 5 And who can win this battle against the world? Only those who believe that Jesus is the Son of God.
***So my question would be… Do you love Him, do you believe and if you love Him and you believe…
Why are we not Winning?
Why are we living a life beneath our God giving Purpose?
Why are we Angry?
Why are we Selfish?
Why are we Depressed?
Why are we Broke and Broken?
Why are we living in Fear?
Why are we Confused about who we are?
Why are we allowing the enemy to Attack us on every angle?
But most of all….
For those of us who say we are believers;
Say we read the word,
Go to church, more then they go to the bathroom,
Say we are saved and got the Holy Spirit living in us,
Say we understand what God has left us with (which is His word and the Holy Spirit).
Why are we living in this wicket, crazy world and acting as if we don’t know what to do and how to combat the enemy?
Allowing him to sneak and creep in our homes, on our jobs, in our minds, on our television.
Invade our ear gates and eye gates.
Come out of our mouth, in our actions and our domineer?
Why are we still allowing the enemy to have free reign in our life?
Ya’ll why are we not using what God has giving us to take the enemy out!
Why are we still living in Sin?
Where is our Focus, our Praise; where is our Worships; where is our Praying and Fasting.
Where is our Faith; where is our Courage; where is our Fight!!!!????
1 Corinthians 16:13
Paul advised us to…
13 Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.
1 Peter 5:8
Peter cautions us…
8 Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
It shouldn’t be so alarming to us when the enemy tries to come in and infiltrate our territory with nonsense, because God already told us that it will happen and He also told us what HE would do if it did; as long as we are standing with HIM.
Isaiah 59:19 clearly tells us what God will do; not we will do, but God!
19 So shall they fear The name of the Lord from the west, And His glory from the rising of the sun; When the enemy comes in like a flood, The Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him.
Prov. 18:10 tells us…
“The name of the Lord is a fortified tower; the righteous run to it and are safe”
Ya’ll, I hope you are getting this, because this is saying that the Lord is our refuge, our protector, our Saviour!!!
The battle is not ours BELIEVERS, it’s the Lords; all we have to do is apply what we know.
What God has already left with us with, and that’s the word of God and the Holy Spirit.
God already knew; He knew how the world would be today; how humans would be disobedient; living in disregard for others, disregard for what is right and just; exchanging right for wrong, misconstruing/distorting His word and compromising on various issues, that don’t coincide with the Word of God.
Deifying instruction and truth from the word of God.
Living foolish, full of destruction, disrespect, ignorance and arrogance.
GOD ALREADY KNEW IT!
God knew about all the perversion, the haughtiness, the violence, the self-absorbed ideology for the cares of life…
For things of the world and for self-preservations.
The lying, the envying, the lust, THE GREED!
He knew it would be, the Ronald McDonald Trump$ of the world…
Trouble making-crocket- evil-scheming, scamming, CLOWNS.
That’s why GOD prepared His people…
HE PREPARED US!
God knew of all of these things that would try to plaque us, in this world.
He knew all of this would happen; right up to now and what’s to come.
So much so, that he wrote in His word, as just a reminder to us; that these are things that He HATE!
Which means that, we are not supposed to partake of them and that we should be on guard of them, when they rise up…
16 These six things the Lord hates, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him: 17 A proud look, A lying tongue, Hands that shed innocent blood, 18 A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that are swift in running to evil, 19 A false witness who speaks lies, And one who sows discord among brethren.
And this are just things that he hate; what about all the things/sins that He just don’t like….
And I could go on and on, but I’ll stop here and say this…
These are all traps of the enemy; the little foxes; which will soon lead to other things (the big foxes) if we don’t be vigilant in our walk.
So with all that being said.
I have some scriptures to give you; when all of these thing arise and the only thing that’s going to help kill them is the word of God and applying the wisdom that He has giving us; so that we can be able to combat the enemy; win and be victorious in our walk with Christ, and not only have eternal life, but live a purpose driven, productive life right here on earth.
See list below and may God bless you and keep you walking in His will!
