Sleep On It

Lamentations 3:25-26. The Lord is good to those who wait for him, to the soul who seeks him. It is good that one should wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.

If you want wisdom, wait for it.

Often I advise people who are going to make a serious financial decisions to sleep on it.
I advise people who want to get married to wait and pray about it.
I would advise anyone who is going to make a career change to wait and seek good counsel.

I think you get the picture.

Wisdom wants to be a part of your life, but it isn’t going to be a crowbar.  It will not force itself on you.  Wisdom wants to be welcome and cherished like a close friend.

Wisdom brings clarity.
Wisdom empowers knowledge
Wisdom loves to be coupled with joy.
Wisdom enjoys the company of honor.
Wisdom brings success.
Wisdom helps you embrace peace.

PRAY:  Dear Jesus, help me to make wisdom my best friend today. AMEN
