Where Do You Get Your Wisdom From?

Have you ever thought how we become smart? We spend years and years in school learning, studying and preparing for “life”. We go to training seminars, read books, listen to lectures, etc. striving to improve our wisdom and knowledge. But, does that really make us smart?

In Daniel 9:22 we read, “22 And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, “O Daniel, I have now come forth to give you skill to understand.” Daniel sought his wisdom from the Lord, not the world.

It is very important to learn, study and train at schools and in your jobs. But, remember, your true knowledge will only come from the Lord. As much as you study and train, remember to pray even more for the wisdom of the Lord. He is the greatest professor, the wisest mentor and the greatest mind!

Do You Know What Is Wrong?

One of the hardest things to admit in life is that there is a problem with something. Maybe we don’t want to admit that we have a health issue — we may go to the doctor, but we “fail” to tell them about the pain we are feeling inside of our body. Maybe our marriage is struggling and we just “assume” things will get better over time, even though we do nothing to make things better. Finally, there is sin.  There is sin in our lives, but we refuse to admit it, we refuse to correct it. Unfortunately, in all three examples above, if we don’t admit there are issues, if we don’t address and correct the issues, they end up being bigger and more destructive than they needed to be.

In Daniel 9:3-5 Daniel prayed, “Then I set my face toward the Lord God to make request by prayer and supplications, with fasting, sackcloth, and ashes. And I prayed to the Lord my God, and made confession, and said, “O Lord, great and awesome God, who keeps His covenant and mercy with those who love Him, and with those who keep His commandments, we have sinned and committed iniquity, we have done wickedly and rebelled, even by departing from Your precepts and Your judgments.” Daniel addressed sin issues with the Lord directly. He admitted, He repented and He sought forgiveness.

Remember Daniel’s prayer as you look at the issues in your life. Unfortunately, our problems won’t “just go away” unless we address them.  I have discovered in my own life that dealing with a small problem is much easier and better than dealing with larger problems.  Address the small problems in your life today so that they will not become big issues.
