Wisdom To Do Things Right


When you have a problem, the first thing you should ask is, ‘What does God’s Word say about this?’ ‘The entrance of his words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple’ (Psalm 119:130 ). Instead of doing things that don’t work – turn to God’s Word.

A couple decided to go duck hunting together. They heard that they needed a good duck hunting dog, so they went to a kennel and got one. They heard that they needed a good shotgun, so they went to the store and bought one. Then they went hunting. At the end of the day they hadn’t got a single duck. The husband said to his wife, ‘Honey, we’ve got to be doing something wrong here.’ His wife replied, ‘Well, maybe if we throw the dog up a little higher he could catch a duck this time.’

When it comes to the Christian life, we try to accomplish things with tools that don’t work or don’t make sense. A dog is not the right equipment to get ducks – you need firepower to bring a duck down.

Why did Paul write, ‘Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom’ (Colossians 3:16 NKJV)? Because when the word of Christ dwells richly in your heart, you’re equipped with God’s wisdom. You can’t solve a problem by using the very elements that caused it. You need God’s wisdom, and it’s found in his Word. Less than 30 per cent of Christians read their Bible daily. Think about that: 70 per cent of Christians look for the answer in the wrong places.

If you want to succeed in life and in all that you do, you’ve got to stop doing things that don’t work, you need the right wisdom and knowledge to handle each and every aspect of your life. All problems don’t require the same solutions and because we are limited in scope and reasoning and so, we apply the same tactics for every problem and keep going in circles, achieving nothing.

Today, let’s make conscious effort and decisions to stop doing things that don’t work and ask God for the right wisdom to every challenge, how to handle them and achieve more positive results.

Good morning everyone and have a blessed day.

  1. So true. I wish I always asked that question first. I usually don’t ask it at all. I appreciate you posting this. This has challenged me to start asking that question first and going to God’s word. Thanks Whitney. I hope you are having a wonderful restful weekend.
