“Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding” Proverbs 4:7, NKJV.
“But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God…” 1 Corinthians 1:30, NKJV.
Wisdom is the principal thing, and above all, it is what you want to receive from God for every decision you make. It is like the foundation of a home–it’s what you build on. Wisdom is the foundation for all of the choices and plans, and you don’t want to approach doing anything without it.
When doing a work for God, deciding on who to marry, or making a financial decision, get wisdom. In the multitude of counsel there is safety (see Prov. 11:14), so ask other godly men do they have any advice and even share any of their own experiences. You’ll be surprised at how God will speak to you through them and help you locate the exact wisdom you need for your situation.
Most of all, Jesus has been made unto us wisdom. He will speak and guide you. He is your wisdom because He is the word of God (see John 1:14). It is principal, it is foundational, to find the wisdom Jesus gives through the word, then follow his leading. Follow his peace.
Refuse to be rushed or pressured. You want peace. In these times, it is crucial as a man to be wise, to pray, and understand God’s will for you. Therefore, if you don’t know, don’t go. Stop and get wisdom.
Prayer: Father, I needed this. I have so many decisions before me. Give me wisdom. Help me to find the wisdom I need, even through the counsel of others. As I get all the practical information I can, and as I pray about it, Jesus speak to me, and I will follow your lead. Help me to stop and not move until I receive Your wisdom. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
