God wants you to enjoy life part 2: Wisdom in life

Hey Luvs,

The blessings of the Lord maketh one rich and it adds no sorrow with it (Proverbs 10:22).

In my previous post I talked about God wanting us to enjoy life! Yes He does. He came to give life and life abundently (John 10:10). The meaning of abundance is : quantity or plenty. He wants us to enjoy life to the fullest. However in order not to fall on the traps of the enemy or suffer unnecessarily you must apply wisdom.

Getting wisdom is the wisest thing you can do (Proverbs 4:7). So what is wisdom? Wisdom can be defined as the ability to judge correctly and follow the best course of action based on knowledge and understanding  (Lockyer 1103).

A lot of us Christians end up in unccesary stress or trouble because we do not apply wisdom when taking certain decisions in life. Because of lack of knowledge my people perish (Hosea 4:6). We need to start taking responsibility for our decisions in life. God gave us a measure of free will so when you use it and it does not work out don't blame Him! Accept your part in writing your history. He has a plan for you but you need to find out what it is.

Me for instance I have taken certain financial decisions, decisions on trust, decisions on friendships/alliances,life partners which all ended up in shambles. At the time when I was passing through the pains of these lessons I blamed God thinking that it was His fault these things had happened.

Later on when I collected my two senses back haha, I realised that it was actually my lack of wisdom that made me experience those things. God gives us ample opportunities to see where we are going wrong but we ignore it. I did and I suffered unnecessarily. That's why when the Bible says in James 1:13 - when tempted no one should say God is tempting me for God cannot be tempted by evil nor does He tempt anyone".

When taking decisions we need to holistically analyse everything about it. We need to look at the benefits and consequences of that decision and also if it falls in line with the word of God/what God has said concerning us. We need to also put it into prayer ask God for guidance and wisdom. As I said earlier He talks all the time, we must be able to hear.

The enemy has no power whatsoever. If he comes at you with a gun it's empty, there are no bullets in them! He is a toothless bulldog a nonentity  But we must not tempt the Grace of God! We need to use wisdom so that we do not fall into the trap of the enemy or allow him to use the foolish decisions/circumstances against us.

We can enjoy all the wonderful things God has placed on this earth only if we apply wisdom to it. We can enjoy marriage,we can be financially sound, we can have well behaved children, we can be safe in our work places if only we use our God given wisdom.

If any of you are lacking wisdom ask God. He can give it to us (James 1:5). Let us enjoy life using wisdom it's the quickest way to living a stress reduced -Joy filled life!

Proverbs 1:7
Proverbs 3:7
Proverbs 4: 6-7
James 3:17
1 Corinthians 1:30
Proverbs 14:1
Proverbs 19:20

I hope you have been blessed

All things pink and pretty x
