If you don’t have peace, stop and get wisdom.

October 3, 2023

“Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding” Proverbs 4:7, NKJV.

“And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful” Colossians 3:15, NKJV.

Wisdom is the principal thing. It is like the foundation of a home–it’s what you receive to build on. Wisdom is the foundation for all your choices and plans, and the Father doesn’t want you to approach doing anything without it.

When doing a work for God, deciding who to marry, or making a financial decision, get wisdom. There is safety in the multitude of counsel (see Prov. 11:14), 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 to us as our wisdom (1 Corinthians 1:30). He is your wisdom because he is the word of God. 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 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.

Study: Proverbs 8:35 & 11:14, James 1:5, Ephesians 5:14-17
