Wisdom for

EVERYDAY LIFE The Promises of God

with Pastor Drew

G

Part III

reetings precious people, this week we continue our series entitled “The Promises of God”. As mentioned in part one of this series, t h e r e are but a few promises to all of mankind, the vast majority are to those who have become His children by adoption through faith in Jesus Christ and repentance from sin. Some may think this is not “fair”, that all of God’s promises should be to everyone. Well they are to everyone that will repent of sin and turn to Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sin. Think of this way, you are a parent, your children have your protection; love; provision; sacrifice; and will inherit what you have at your departure. Should others who are not your children or even those who hate you and your children be beneficiaries of what you have for your own children? Of course not, that would be absurd! Now let us continue to look at some more of the many promises that God makes to all that are His. God promises wisdom and guidance, wisdom is one of God’s promises. 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.” There is a condition that goes with this promise as many of God’s promises have conditions attached to them. James 1:6-8 “But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.” God gives wisdom and guides us. It’s in the Bible, Psalms 32:8, “I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which you shall go: I will guide you with mine eye.” Don’t look to yourself for wisdom. As the previous verse says, “He will guide you with His eye”. The obvious implication is that for Him to do this we must be looking to Him. Proverbs 3:5-7. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the Lord and depart from evil.” God promises to guide you on His pathway. Isaiah 30:21, “And your ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.” What a great privilege and honor it is to have the King of Kings; Lord of Lord’s; Creator of the Heaven and Earth willing and desirous of leading and guiding my life, not to be there only as a “last resort” when my ways do not work out which is the way many look at God. Look at how God describes Himself through the Prophet Isaiah 9:6 “For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Think of this dear ones, the Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace offers to be your Wonderful Counselor, to lead and guide you through this life that is filled with obstacles; dangers; unknowns; heartaches; trials and temptations. How can you neglect so great an offer? Yet the sad fact is that many do. When I say many, I am not talking about those who want nothing to do with God, this is a given. I am talking about those who profess to know and trust in Him and this is why many “professing” Christians lives are a mess, they insist on choosing their own path and way, then when things go wrong they wonder why and even have the audacity to blame God for suffering the consequences of their actions.
