Seeing Things God's Way

Proverbs 3: 13 - 14 (AMP) - "Happy (blessed, fortunate, enviable) is the man who finds skillful and godly Wisdom, and the man who gets understanding [drawing it forth from God’s Word and life’s experiences], For the gaining of it is better than the gaining of silver, and the profit of it better than fine gold."

God appeared to Solomon in a dream and gave him the opportunity to ask for anything that he wanted. How many of us would love to have that opportunity. What would you ask for? Be honest. Money, fame, prestige, power, houses, boats...... The list could go on and on.

Solomon, faced with taking the throne of his father David, asked for a discerning heart. For wisdom. He wanted to be able to listen to the truth and apply it in his life and in his kingdom. He asked for wisdom, because wisdom understands what is true and right.

He received this gift from God, and then he used it. He added to it. He became legendary in his wisdom.

God has given each of us a measure of wisdom. What have we done with it? Have we let it sit and sour, or have we added to it? We have access to the fullness of wisdom today. Where? In God Himself. And this is available in His Word - the Bible. I have often taught and said - "Two things you need to do every day, Read your Bible and Pray."

Ponder today over how you have looked at life - through your thoughts and eyes, or though the thoughts and eyes of God? Get into His word today and see things His way.
