Spirit and Life Devotional is a daily publication by Pastor Chinaemerem Ibezim, senior pastor of Able Ministers Chapel, a church based in Calabar.
Pray for wisdom Proverbs 8:10-11 NKJV “Receive my instruction, and not silver, And knowledge rather than choice gold; For wisdom is better than rubies, And all the things one may desire cannot be compared with her.”
One problem many of us have is that we consistently make wrong choices: some of us even find it difficult to make choices! Some of the reasons why we do are, impatience, inability to prioritize, lack of adequate information, lack of discernment, bad attitude to learning and instructions, confusion, living by sight (choosing only what you see now, what’s available now).
It’s not bad to make mistakes, but there are some avoidable mistakes, and it’s a serious problem when same mistakes are made consistently even under different circumstances. One of the keys to a successful and fulfilled life is wisdom. Wisdom is priceless! It’s value cannot be really ascertained. No one can put a tag on it!
Before you start praying for a job or business, a husband or wife, children, a position, money, etc, first pray for wisdom. Wisdom will preserve every other thing you’ll get, wisdom will make you a good manager and companion, wisdom will make you outstanding, it will deliver you from evil, and wisdom will keep you being relevant for a very long time. Thanks be to God! Wisdom is available for us in Christ. Get wisdom!
