Wisdom Just In Time!

Take no thought how or what you shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what you shall speak. (Matt. 10:19) 

Do you know what I've discovered about the Lord? He doesn't give wisdom on credit. He doesn't advance you a bundle of insight. . . . Do you know when He gives us words and wisdom and insight? Right when we need them. At the very instant they are required. 

If you're a parent, you may have experienced this phenomenon. You find yourself in a situation you never anticipated, and couldn't prepare for. Suddenly, you're at one of the critical junctures of life where you're the mom or dad, and your child is looking into your eyes, depending on you for a right answer. Not always, but often, you are given the words you need. Later you realize that they were words beyond your own wisdom. At that quiet moment, you breathe a little prayer of thanks. "Praise You, Lord. That's exactly what needed to be said." 

Moses: A Man of Selfless Dedication 

Access to God's wisdom is available to us at a moment's notice. Wisdom for a wide variety of situations can be found for us in His Word. My mentors told me the importance of memorizing Scripture so I can be prepared for certain moments that develop in my life. They also point out the importance of being continuously connected to the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit has an uncanny ability to "quicken" us so that the revelation can be fresh in our minds to share (or impart) that bit of wisdom to anyone that needs to hear the Word from the Lord. 

Some due diligence in doing our part in the reading of the Word alongside the spirit of discernment will help assure us that wisdom will always come to us JUST IN TIME. Wisdom is an extremely vital attribute in our lives and will literally guide us in making wise choices in some of the most important situations that we will ever face. With so many of these "important" situations that vie for our attention on a daily basis, wisdom is desperately needed. 

Wisdom that comes just in time is very refreshing in that it provides us with the capacity to make the informed decision to either help ourselves in decision that is being made or that is would be beneficial to the person who is need themselves of a wise (and timely) word of advice in their time of need. Always remember friends, when asking for anything from God, always ask Him to provide you with timely wisdom while at the same time empower you with due diligence and apply the due diligence in the reading and memorization of His Word. When you accomplish this, you reveal to the entire world what it is that you give utmost importance to. 

Thank you so much for reading this far friends! May God continue to bless you and keep you in Jesus' mighty name! JESUS LOVES YOU AND SO DO I!!!!. . . . :-).
