A reminder for today
When all Israel heard the king's decision, the people were in awe of the king, for they saw the wisdom God had given him for rendering justice. (1 Kings 3:28)
I think the argument of the two women over a child is something we all know and how Solomon revealed the real mother when he wanted to cut the child in half. You may frown at Solomon’s decision, but due to God’s wisdom he knew that the real mother would not let the child die. Following God’s voice every day is so important. I spoke to a friend today about lost chances. You see the enemy knows that we can lead people to Jesus with our lives and how we live when we follow the teachings of the gospel. The enemy will find ways to mislead you during your day so that you miss the opportunity to show Jesus to someone who desperately needs Him.
Take this scenario for example: You wake up in the morning and an argument at home makes you leave for work in a hurry a little annoyed. On the way bad traffic fuels an already fowl temper, and finally at the last traffic light before you turn to your place of work a beggar seeks help. Instead of showing the heart of Jesus, you let him have the anger that now fills your being. He sees a Christian screaming at him and not Jesus reaching out to him.
Listening to God’s voice and asking for His wisdom will let us turn evil into good. For example: The argument at home that morning could’ve been avoided by listening to God or you could handle it with more control allowing God to guide you through it and listening to His voice before reacting, thus letting you get into your car with more self-control and a closer relationship with God and finally at the last traffic light you will pause and listen to the beggar who knocked at your window and when you looked you realise that it is someone in need as you hear the Holy Spirit telling you to stop and help.
God’s wisdom is so needed in our world today and more so is it needed to turn hearts and bring people back to God, and sadly those people who need to turn back are the very people we work with or meet on a daily basis. How many times do we insult people or allow people to insult other? How many times do we allow anger to control us? How many times do we allow good people to do or say bad things? How many times do we turn our heads and act like we did not hear of see?
My dear friend, it is time to make a difference. I pray that God will give you wisdom so that people will stand in awe of you when you stand for what is right in the name of Jesus.
Have and awesome day dear friend of Jesus
