The first way to make Godly decisions is wisdom. (Proverbs 4:7, NKJV; Proverbs 14:12, NKJV)
Wisdom is knowing God’s mind in the matter.
Wisdom comes from God’s Word, God’s people, and God’s circumstances.
Wisdom does not come from how you feel.
The flesh is always deceitful. (Jeremiah 17:9, NKJV; Proverbs 19:20, NKJV; Revelation 3:8, NKJV)
How to get wisdom.
Wisdom begins when you ask God for it. (1 Kings 3:9-10, NKJV, CEV; 1 Kings 3:12, CEV)
When you ask for god to give you wisdom, you better understand the wisdom is coming from God, not your deceitful heart.
Ask God for wisdom in areas you need it most. (James 1:5, NKJV, CEV)
Good understanding gains favor and leads to making the right decisions or actions with knowledge. (Proverbs 13:15-16, NKJV)
How do you act without wisdom? (Proverbs 12:15, NKJV)
“I just really feel good about this decision.” (Jeremiah 17:9, NKJV)
You have not listened to the right counsel. (Proverbs 11:14, NKJV)
You have not placed yourself under the right counsel. (Proverbs 19:20, NKJV)
Not cautious. (Proverbs 14:16, TLB)
God is the one who opens the door. (Revelation 3:8, NKJV)
Godly contentment and a Godly discontentment are both okay. (1 Timothy 6:6-8, NKJV)
- Covetousness: focusing on all you don’t have.
- Contentment: focusing on all you do have.
- Covetousness: a hidden sin most don’t know they have it and few confess and admit it.
- Godly discontentment is wanting more of God’s favor and further His Kingdom.
