“But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God…” 1 Corinthians 1:30, NKJV.
“Let the peace of Christ [the inner calm of one who walks daily with Him] be the controlling factor in your hearts [deciding and settling questions that arise]. To this peace indeed you were called as members in one body [of believers]. And be thankful [to God always]” Colossians 3:15, Amplified.
Wisdom is the principal thing. 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. You don’t want to approach doing anything without it.
When navigating through a challenge, starting something, deciding who to marry, or making a financial decision, get wisdom. There is safety in the multitude of counsel, so ask other godly men if they have any advice and even share 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 you wisdom. He will speak and guide you. He is your wisdom because He is the word of God (see John 1:14). It is good 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 for a man to be wise, 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 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.
