He who believes in Me, who adheres to, trusts in, and relies on Me, as the Scripture has said, ‘From his innermost being will flow continually rivers of living water.’ John 7:38 Amplified Bible
Blessed is the one who finds wisdom, and the one who gets understanding, for the gain from her is better than gain from silver and her profit better than gold. She is more precious than jewels, and nothing you desire can compare with her. Proverbs 3: 13-15
Respond With God’s Wisdom
When we react out of our flesh, we gain nothing, we lose big. When we respond out of God’s wisdom the value is inestimable. My son gave us some amazing wisdom last night as we faced a difficult situation motivated and carried out by the vindictive spite of another. He told us not to stoop to their level, but to live higher, respond with God’s wisdom and not to react out of our wounded emotions. Reacting is the broad road of our fallen nature, responding is the narrow road of followship of God.
The Narrow and Wide Gates “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad and easy to travel is the path that leads the way to destruction and eternal loss, and there are many who enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow and difficult to travel is the path that leads the way to everlasting life, and there are few who find it. Matthew 7:13-14 Amplified Bible
Choose To Be Better
If we choose to be the better people and walk in the wisdom of God, not the retribution of men, we bring glory to God’s Kingdom. We are so thankful for our son and totally grateful for the wisdom from God that he shared with us. It changed the course of our decision from human retribution to letting go and letting God. It is kind of cool that we had a “divine appointment” with our son and the wisdom of God and it changed us for the better. The response to evil belongs to God and when we let go and let Him lead, He gave us the best wisdom to make this situation a better one.
Let be and be still, and know, recognize and understand that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations! I will be exalted in the earth! The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our Refuge our High Tower and Stronghold. Selah pause, and calmly think of that! Psalm 46:10-11 Amplified Bible
Be Godly At All Times
When we walk out of God’s wisdom, we are not focused on what we have lost here, or what temporary gain we are going to try to make happen, we are focused on a higher profit, a gain that is way better than this world’s monetary value, a kingdom gain for the glory of God, and out of that God wisdom, we live and make God’s miraculous mark on a situation devised by evil intentions to hurt, steal and destroy.
Flesh Out ~ Truth In
The challenge of our human nature to retaliate is natural when we have been deliberately hurt by someone. Inside of this challenge of our flesh are the purposes of God in play for us and these God purposes are always greater than the challenge itself. If we can learn to break the habit of kindling our own fire and walking by the light of a temporary man made fire, we will see the glory of God in His purposes in play in our challenge to “flesh out” and respond Godly to those who have divisively planned evil against us. If we follow after our flesh, nothing really good will happen, we just add more evil to an already bad situation and we end up more tormented than before.
So, you who are listening, do you acknowledge the Eternal One as God? And do you take seriously what the servant of God has to say? If you are enveloped in darkness, with no light to see, take confidence in the name of the Eternal One; rely on your God. 11 Ah, but if you’ve tried to go it alone, the light by which you go is your own consuming fire, And the torches you light will be your undoing. Eternal One: By My hand you will go down in torment. Isaiah 50:10-11
Positioned In Providential Care
One thing that we must remind ourselves is there is great wisdom of being positioned in the providential care of our God and keeping ourselves holy aligned to it. God’s providential care has a twofold purpose always in play as we take refuge under the shadow of it. God will work things out for our good, purposefully so and God will bring glory to His kingdom, purposefully so. It is the wisest choice in every any situation we face to stay in the flow of this twofold purpose of God’s providential care.
He will say to the Eternal, “My shelter, my mighty fortress, my God, I place all my trust in You.” For He will rescue you from the snares set by your enemies who entrap you and from deadly plagues. Like a bird protecting its young, God will cover you with His feathers, will protect you under His great wings; His faithfulness will form a shield around you, a rock-solid wall to protect you. Psalm 91:2-4 The Voice
Forgive And Release
It does hurt when people deceptively plan to hurt you, to steal from you, to damage what you own, because we are but flesh and flesh can be hurt. But, it will hurt more if we become as foolishly childish as they have acted out towards us. It is our natural bent to reflect the people who have wounded us, that is the curse of a bitter heart, we become like the person who has made us bitter. We need to break this chain off of us, stop the natural habit of reacting from our flesh and begin a new spiritual habit of responding to God and through God. One of the first things we need to do is to forgive and release, letting go and letting God. When we are hurt by others, we need to immediately respond to God, seek His wisdom and move in followship of Him. The battle is never ours, it is always His and He is able to finish it in that special way of His providential care, bringing glory to His Kingdom and good to us.
Strive to live in peace with everybody and pursue that consecration and holiness without which no one will ever see the Lord. Exercise foresight and be on the watch to look after one another, to see that no one falls back from and fails to secure God’s grace, His unmerited favor and spiritual blessing, in order that no root of resentment, rancor, bitterness, or hatred shoots forth and causes trouble and bitter torment, and the many become contaminated and defiled by it— Hebrews 12:14-15 New Living Translation
Mess To Message
Trying to do things on our own, we can really mess things up, but connected to God’s wisdom, there is such an incredible miraculous flow of His favor, strength and grace. If you have messed something up doing it your own way, like I have, turn with me to God, let’s fully face God together and give it to Him, let go and let God make His miraculous message out of your mess. I am hoping huge in God to do this for all of us. Cling to Him, dig your life roots deeply in Him, and follow after Him. All He has really asked us to do is that and in this we keep the freedom of our soul and a joyful spirit.
Building on a Solid Foundation “Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock. But anyone who hears my teaching and doesn’t obey it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand. When the rains and floods come and the winds beat against that house, it will collapse with a mighty crash.” Matthew 7:24-27 New Living Translation
Stay Positioned Under The Providential Care Of God’s Wisdom!
You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the Lord will give you, Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the Lord will be with you. 2 Chronicles 20:15,17
