Building something that lasts is not a process of guesswork but of careful planning. If you want to build a resilient and successful life it won’t happen using a ‘hit-or-miss’ approach. We are all in the process of building our lives, so what plans are you following?
Previously, I spoke about why some people come through tough times and others don’t depending on the foundation they have built their lives upon. When you apply the wisdom of God to your life you will not only have a blessed life but you will have what it takes to keep going through trials and set-backs.
Far too many people ignore wisdom because either they don’t want to hear it or they don’t recognise it when they do. Wisdom has to be sown into your life before it can produce fruit.
One of the first indicators of wisdom is your words. What is inside you will come out. If you haven’t fed your soul with God’s wisdom then wisdom won’t come forth from your lips. Proverbs 10:21 says, “The lips of the righteous feed many, but fools die for lack of wisdom.”
In the same way, if you keep company with wise people, receiving their advice, you will gain wisdom. Proverbs 13:20 says, “He who walks with wise men will be wise, but the companion of fools will be destroyed.”
Stop and think for a moment – are you ‘feeding’ on wisdom? What kind of words are you speaking regularly? Are your words feeding others or are they pulling down?
Make a decision today to ‘lean in’ to wisdom. Receive wisdom from wise people, feed on God’s wisdom every day. Positioning yourself to receive and apply positive, life-giving words is an essential key to building a blessed and productive life.
Scripture Reference: Proverbs 2:1 NLT
“My child, listen to what I say, and treasure my commands.”
Lord I ask You for ears to hear and a heart to receive Your wisdom for my life. Help me to recognise Your voice in others and may my voice be one that feeds many.
