Life is a challenging sea to navigate at times. Life is wonderful and exciting filled with many blessings and joys but it is also tough and difficult at times filled with many trials and sorrows. Without some frame of reference for how you will conduct your life, your life will to take over and control you instead of you controlling your life. When I write of you controlling your life, I am meaning “controlling” in a positive godly way.

The correct way to navigate life is with the wisdom, guidance, and direction of God for He is the only one who knows everything your life will entail. Much of His direction for life is found within His Word, the Bible. Within the Bible He has proved us with a treasure-trove of wisdom for how to live and conduct ourselves on a daily basis. The Book of Proverbs is a condensed book of that wisdom and focuses solely on imparting wisdom to mankind.

The human vessel through which God chose to release this wisdom was King Solomon. The wises man to ever live. He displayed his wisdom even before God imparted great wisdom to him, when he had the opportunity to receive from God anything he desired, money, fame, wealth, women, anything, and Solomon chose instead to ask God for wisdom. God rewarded the young man’s honorable and wise request by giving him great wisdom and all the rest as well – money, fame, wealth, women, etcetera (1 Kings 3:1-15).

Wisdom, godly wisdom, makes the obtaining of all the rest a real possibility. A life lived under the guidance of godly wisdom will succeed and bear fruit, whereas a life lived apart from wisdom will surely end in failure and destruction. With each day, each moment, each decision we must choose which type of life we are going to live.

Whether you are someone of many years who needs to obtain wisdom for the balance of your years, in order to be fruitful, or to be reminded of the wisdom that has blessed your life thus far or you are a young person just starting out in life without any real understanding of what it means to live life with godly understanding and wisdom, this study is for both age groups. It is also for all those individuals, like myself, who are in-between the two age groups, who are attempting to live their life under the godly counsel, with godly understanding, and by walking in the wisdom of God, yet, we need to be reminded continually of what that wisdom is and the diverse ways in which we can apply God’s wisdom to our daily circumstance. Wisdom is fruitful for all people, at all stages of life, under all circumstances.

I invite, encourage, and exhort you to jump into the sea of wisdom with both feet and trust that just as Jesus was there for Peter to stabilize his steps and keep him from sinking (Matt. 14:25-33), God will use His wisdom as one of the tools in your life to stabilize your steps and keep your life from sinking.

In the next posting, before we actually begin to examine the Scriptural text of Proverbs, we will take a look at how to make godly decision. Some simple and practical guidelines for how to approach decision making God’s way will be explained.

Throughout this study if you need the wisdom of God on a matter, and you wish to receive the counsel of another Believer in Christ, please use the “comments” link to send your question to me.

Spiritual/Political Disclaimer:

This blog will not be for the faint of heart or the easily offended. It will not be in any way politically correct. It will make every effort to share the truth in love, [Ephesians 4:11-16], to a decaying and dying society and church. I share what I share not to hurt, harm, or offend any person[s] or group; I do it because Christ’s Standard and Truth is not being represented by enough of His Followers, and I do it out of love. I love enough to tell His Truth.

Ephesians 4:11-16 NKJV

11And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, 13till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; 14that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, 15but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ— 16from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.
