lyrics: "Glory and power be to You the only wise king."

"...to the only wise God be glory forever through Jesus Christ! Amen." Romans 16:27 NIV



Who do you go to for advice? Who is the wise one in your life?

I often go to my husband. He calms me when I get overexcited. He tells me when I need to let go. He is my sounding board here on earth. But, he is not my main "wise" man. My main man is God.

Wisdom comes from God, so I go to the source. His council is always available (OPEN 24/7), day or night. His council is like a rock, build on a solid foundation, it does not falter. If we go to the place where wisdom comes from, we will never be led astray. 

Pray for wisdom for yourself, for your friends and family, and for your leaders.

  1. Christ is my main man, too. Matthew 6:33, 'But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.' are words to live by.

    Great post!

  3. My problem is I seem to always be turning to God for wisdom LAST when I should turn to him FIRST. Then he can lead me to the wise ones around me. :)
    Blessings!
