Live According To God’s Way (Psalms 19:7)

The instructions of the Lord are perfect, reviving the soul. The decrees of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple.

Psalms 19:7 (NLT)

When we put our trust in God’s Word and in the leading and the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we will find peace overtaking our soul and wisdom filling our heart. Committing to lives lived according to God’s way will always reveal His instructions to be perfect and His Word evermore trustworthy.

Live By The Wisdom Of The Word (Proverbs 23:12)

Apply thine heart unto instruction, and thine ears to the words of knowledge.

Proverbs 23:12 (KJV)

We apply our heart to the instruction of God’s Word by speaking it over our lives, and by making it a part of our everyday conversation. Whatever we hear repeatedly—even as we hear ourselves saying it—will become rooted in our hearts. When we consistently live by the knowledge found in the Word of God, good success and prosperity in every area become inevitable.

In His Presence (Psalm 15:11)

Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

Psalm 15:11 (KJV)

Getting in the presence of God through His Word, worship, praise, prayer and simply talking with Him, takes us to a place of joy that is independent of any circumstances. Out of this fellowship with God that is available to all will come wisdom and revelation to guide us on the path of life.

Seek His Ways (Psalm 25:4-5)

Shew me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths. Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.

Psalm 25:4-5 (KJV)

We open ourselves to supernatural favor and wisdom from above when we make it our practice to pause and seek the counsel and direction of God in all things. When we no longer insist on our own ways, but seek His ways, His paths and His truth, He will take us to places of breakthrough we could have never reached on our own.

The Holy Spirit Brings The Word To Our Remembrance (John 14:26)

But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

John 14:26 (KJV)

One of the functions of the Holy Spirit is to bring the things of Jesus to our remembrance. We can be in the midst of turmoil or some kind of unexpected challenge, and the Holy Spirit will be there to gently draw our attention back to the truths of the Word of God. He will remind us of what is true about us in Christ and the victory that has already been won.

Our Strength Comes From Him (Isaiah 40:31)

But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Isaiah 40:31 (KJV)

The grace of God works best when we acknowledge our need for Him, when we learn to trust in Him and depend on Him. When we stop relying on our own might, we will find He always supplies us with the strength, wisdom and ability to do what He has called us to do, and to walk in the victory He has already made available.

Cultivate A Heart Of Humility (Proverbs 11:2)

When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom.

Proverbs 11:2 (KJV)

Pride tends to distort our motivations and it clouds our judgement; it keeps us from acting out of true wisdom. God delights in our humility, because it is the humble heart that is most open and receptive to wisdom. When we look to God for wisdom, when we remain open and teachable, we may be certain that we will never be put to shame.

Live By The Wisdom Of The Word (Proverbs 23:12)

Apply thine heart unto instruction, and thine ears to the words of knowledge.

Proverbs 23:12 (KJV)

We apply our heart to the instruction of God’s Word by speaking it over our lives, and by making it a part of our everyday conversation. Whatever we hear repeatedly—even as we hear ourselves saying it—will become rooted in our hearts. When we consistently live by the knowledge found in the Word of God, good success and prosperity in every area become inevitable.

The Gift Of His Peace (John 14:27)

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

John 14:27 (KJV)

We have the ability to not let our heart be troubled because Jesus has already given us the gift of His peace. We received His peace when we received Him, and we access His peace as we keep our minds and hearts filled with His Word. And so rather than allowing circumstances and conditions to dictate where our attention goes today, let us purpose in our hearts to focus on the One who is our peace. We will find ourselves walking in His wisdom and guidance in any given situation.

The Gift Of Wisdom (James 1:5)

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.

James 1:5 (NKJV)

Wisdom is the ability to use knowledge rightly. It is a grace gift from God and it is freely available to us at all times; yet as with all things, we must have faith that we receive wisdom when we ask for it. Trust today that wisdom is available, and that with the Holy Spirit’s help you will know what to do at all times as you walk in God’s perfect will for your life.
