Wisdom is not about how much truth you know, but how much truth governs your life.
There are many scholars who never do anything but debate the finest points of theology, and then there are simple saints who don’t know a fraction of what those people do, but they act on what they know and miracles happen around them regularly.
Knowing what is true, knowing what works, having discernment and discretion are all a part of being wise, but learning to know God’s voice and how to act on it is what makes the difference in the heat of battle. (The Art of War, p. 86-87.)
Paul said, “This one thing I do.” If you were to focus on doing one thing this week, focus on hearing God’s voice. Practice listening for it daily – and then act on what you hear!
It’s not complicated.
“Draw near to God and He will draw near to you” (James 4:8).
Get the truth about your situation directly from the Source of all truth. The more time you spend connecting to that Source, the more empowered you will be to live a life governed by it.
Galatians 5:16: So I say, let the Holy Spirit guide your lives. Then you won’t be doing what your sinful nature craves.
