The Advantages of Wisdom (2 of 3)
Series: The Advantages of Wisdom
Last week we looked at the advantages of wisdom here in Proverbs 3. We saw that when you seek the wisdom of God, it literally adds fullness and longevity to your life! The happiest people on the face of the earth are God's people. We also saw that if you will trust in the lord, and turn from your own desires and wants, that God will direct your path! He does that through His Word, and through the quiet voice of the Holy Spirit of God, and through the witness of God's peace in your heart!
If you have no peace about a certain decision or problem in life, sit still until God clears it up for you! And God is eager to reveal His will to us when He knows that we trust Him, and that we will do what He wants in life! He does not reveal His will for us to consider it, but He reveal His will for us to follow it, and do whatever He wants us to do in life! And He knows what will make us the happiest, and He has gifted us to do what He calls us to do!
