so recently i've had two epiphanies concerning wisdom...specifically God's wisdom.....
i have an unruly knack for trying to convince people of my way of thinking, albeit: change their will...so it occured to me...if God himself gave people the gift of "FREE WILL," then who am i to attempt to take that God-given right away from them. once again....God's plan prevails!
the second situation involved having a discussion with probably the most liberal young fella in my government class. the funniest part was when the teacher seen the two of us having a discussion, he got a total look of panic on his face and felt compelled to say, "i don't want an arguement between you two." weirdly enough, we were both very cordial and calm when he said it. anyway, he was giving me the "i listen to all sides of things and then decide what i think is best" speech i hear from many secular people all the time. and suddenly, as though filled with the breath of Jesus, the correct response just entered into me and i said to him......"the difference is that i don't rely on MY own wisdom to make decisions."
as human, emotional beings, whether spirit-filled or otherwise, it is narcissistic of us to rely on our own understanding for such big decisions as marriage, abortion or even how to raise our children. that's why we as believers are so enormously blessed to have a wisdom FAR BEYOND OUR UNDERSTANDING and comprehension to give us all the answers we could ever need! amen.
