God wants to multiply your days

Wisdom will multiply your days and add years to your life. If you become wise, you will be the one to benefit. If you scorn wisdom, you will be the one to suffer. Proverbs 9:11-12

James 1:5-8, 1 Corinthians 1:30
James takes the humble approach in this passage and writes ‘If you need wisdom’. Seriously? I am not sure about you but I find my greatest need in life is the need for wisdom. Recently I was mentoring a pastor overseas and he was going through a season of trouble that he found overwhelming. He wanted me to confirm what the ‘voice of faith’ was saying at that specific time. I responded that the ‘voice of faith’ was secondary in priority to what he needed the most, which was the voice of wisdom.  Over the years I have found the voice of faith to be perpetually strong in my walk with God (as I believe it is with most of us) through dreams, promises from His Word and the encouragement of other believers. However, I find we need to put all of our energy into hearing the voice of wisdom on a daily basis for each specific decision and battle we encounter.
This voice is the voice of Jesus. The Bible says that for our benefit God made Jesus to be wisdom itself (1 Corinthians 1:30). Wisdom will tell you when to pursue and conquer and when to simply stand your ground. It will clarify what is worth fighting for and what is not worth the fight. Wisdom is never rushed or forced into a corner. It is knowledge applied at the right time, in the right way with the right motive. So if you do nothing else today, do this one thing - slow down. Remove distractions. Sit beside some still waters. Let Jesus speak wisdom to you for every decision you make and every battle you face.
We often ask what's next? The answer to that question will require focus. Nothing good ever happened by accident - good is always the result of intention. I encourage you today to connect with God in prayer in a meaningful way and grow in His word through focused devotion. It will multiply your days.
