“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 our choices and plans, and you don’t want to approach doing anything without it.
When doing a good work for God, deciding on who to marry, moving your family, or making a financial decision, get wisdom. In the multitude of counsel there is safety, 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 what’s before you.
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 to find the wisdom Jesus gives through His word, then follow peace. Refuse to be rushed or pressured. With all of your decisions, it is crucial as a man to be wise and understand God’s will for you. Therefore, if you don’t know, don’t go. Stop and get peace. Get wisdom.
Prayer: Father, I needed this. I have so many decisions before me. Give me wisdom, especially so I can victoriously lead my family. 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 and Your peace. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
