Scripture: Proverbs 8:32-34
Pastor Jim Gallagher
Now therefore, O sons listen to me
For blessed are they who keep my ways
Heed my instruction and be wise
And do not neglect it
Blessed is the man who listens to me
In our fast-paced valley of communication overload, sometimes we have a hard time just listening- listening to all God wants to say to us through his word. God wants to communicate to us, but we tend not to listen. We get caught up in the latest Facebook, Instagram or Twitter trend and forget that Gods word will speak to every situation if we just stop and listen. He tells us to heed instruction and be wise. Reading Gods word will make us wise and we can overcome anything this life has to offer.
Turning off my phone and just unplugging and listening to God through his word has made all the difference in my life. You don’t have to do it forever but a few times a day just be still and watch and see God speak to you. Every major decision in my life I have sought God through his word. Grow wise by stopping, getting quiet and listening to God through his word.
Lord help me to not only pray for wisdom but to actively seek YOUR wisdom through your word. Help me to heed wisdom and become wise…..
