Many times we get ourselves into different negative situations simply because of a lack of wisdom in that particular area. Wisdom is a gift that God gives us so that we can maximise our knowledge and this is why wisdom and knowledge always go hand in hand:
Pro 4:5 Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth.
Pro 4:7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
Pro 16:16 How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver!
Without wisdom our understanding can destroy us and this is why it is given to us as a guide:
The scriptures say that the fool says in his heart there is no God, this is because if they admit there is a God, then they are accountable for their actions and they do not want to be, they despise the very idea:
Pro 1:7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
In God we live we breathe and we have our being, there is nothing too great or too small for him, he is the source of life. Therefore because of this he has predestined our lives for greatness in him, but in order to fulfil this and take a hold of our inheritance, it starts with a relationship with him, knowing who he is and this journey is supporting by wisdom.
Pro 3:13 Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.
The gift is discovered out of a desire to serve God, if you get to know God more, you hunger to please him and as you ask him to guide you steps, you are inviting wisdom into your life.
Pro 2:7 He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly.
The Bible says if there is any area that you are lacking in wisdom, you should ask God for the gift of wisdom for that area. If we would only do that, there are many areas where we struggle that we would not have too.
Just think about it, if we love God and he is guiding our steps, why would we be struggling in certain areas of live. We can put it down to a test that God is taking us through to grow us, but how long should the test be lasting? If you are never learning from the test, then you will stay in the test until you do learn, because God loves you too much not to help you too advance. A test should cause you to go on your knees and ask God for the Wisdom to get through it, so you can learn to things you need to learn.
However a lot of times our struggles are not because of a test but because of our laziness and lack of wisdom and understand in that area. We look for something for nothing:
E.G We do not want to read the bible, but we want all of the promises in the bible,
We say that we love God but we don’t even know him because we get to know him through his word.
We want a better marriage but do not want to compromise and put the other person first, we have the attitude that it is always the other person’s fault.
We stay we want godly kids but we never sit down with them and discuss the things of God.
We say we want better finances but we are lazy and full of excuses why we are not doing the things we need to do to get better finances.
We stay we want that degree but we don’t want to study.
The list could go on and on.
God wants us to be over comers in his world, so that the ungodly people can see and get a witness from successful children of God, his church, his called out ones. However it starts with our desire to know him more and our asking for wisdom in the areas we are lacking, but not just asking but also applying the knowledge we gain.
As children of God we have an inheritance and that is in God, where ever we put our feet we shall posses it. So if that is the case, why are you struggling in your business?
Have you ask God for wisdom in this area, are you applying the knowledge you have gained in this area?
Are you doing the activity you know you should be doing in this area?
You see just because you are a Christian, does not automatically mean you will prosper in all of the areas in your life, if you are not operating in wisdom, knowledge and understanding.
We need to be honest with ourselves and before God, repent and move forward because we do have an inheritance and is starts from down here!
