Proverbs 8:20-21 NKJV “I [wisdom] traverse the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of justice, that I may cause those who love me to inherit wealth, that I may fill their treasuries.”
Have you ever been in a situation where your available resources seem to fall short of what you need for your planned welfare? Not enough vacation time to go on a holiday, or not enough money to pay all the bills and have discretionary funds available. Probably you were also worried about child or family member of yours situation. Pondering on all of this just makes you fell inadequate in your self and in your own abilities.
God never expects you to depend on yourself or your ability for anything. He expects that you put your faith in Him and His abilities. One of the things He has made for us as believers is wisdom. The Scripture above reveals that the answer to great wealth is the wisdom of God. For you to live a wealthy, whole and abundant life, you need the wisdom (applied know how). Many of the things that we are faced with in life wont be a burden emotionally if we simply knew what to do. It is the fear of not knowing what to do that makes you worried and stressed.
Rather than worry or become stressed out, you must learn to count it joy when these trials, temptations, and shortfalls stare you at the face. Because in the midst of this is an opportunity for God to show out in your life! By faith plug in to draw wisdom from God. Be confident that He will answer. When you pray, believe you have receive the wisdom and rejoice all the way (Jam.1:2-7). It is in the midst of your confidence and rejoicing that ideas begin to come. Helpers are sent your way. Unexpected money comes your way etc., all because you believe and expect for the wisdom of God to be made manifest!
