Above & Before…

“Above all and before all, do this: Get Wisdom!”
Proverbs 4:7

The journey of life can become busy and overwhelming at times. People rush everywhere trying to do everything they possibly can. Often rapid-fire decisions are made with little forethought. These often prove to be big mistakes that carry a great cost.

Today’s verse says don’t rush! Slow down! Know that God’s way to a successful life is to get His Wisdom above and before everything. This means that God’s Wisdom must come before our plans, desires & schedules. It must be placed above our emotions, circumstances and feelings. Whenever we disregard Wisdom, we are heading towards disaster without knowing it.

Wisdom can never be rushed. It takes time & energy to gain it. The bible is chocked full of Wisdom for us to live by. It is there so we can successfully navigate every part of life. The key to getting Wisdom is to slow down and take our time to read, ponder and apply God’s Word to our lives before we do something, not after. Whenever we prioritize God’s Word in our life we are prioritizing Wisdom in our lives.

This week let’s put God’s Wisdom above and before our personal wisdom. Let’s SLOW DOWN and allow Wisdom to seep into the very depths of our hearts. Let’s allow Wisdom to become the foundation of every decision we make. As we do this our lives will begin to flourish and we will become a people of great Wisdom.
