Proverbs 3:13, “Blessed are those who find wisdom, those who gain understanding, for she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold.”
“When we see life through God’s perspective, we get God’s results.”
In Zimbabwe in 2009 you could find bank notes – a single bill – that were worth $100,000,000,000,000. That is one hundred trillion dollars!
You might think, “Wow, if I had just one of those, I would be set for life!” But you would be hugely mistaken and giving too much value to this currency, because all it would buy in that country was a single loaf of bread!
We’ve all put too much value in the wrong things before, and not enough value in things that really matter – like God’s wisdom. Could it be that we are putting more value in our own feelings than we are in our faith that God has the answers we are looking for?
The Bible tells us that the supernatural wisdom of God is to be treasured; it’s more valuable than silver or gold. How might your outlook on life change if you focused on the supernatural wisdom of God and you applied it regularly to your life? It’s time that we all increase our return on our investment as we richly experience God’s best for our lives!
Read Proverbs 3:5-6 three times out loud, and focus on each word that God is saying to you. Consider the new ways you need to start actively trusting him today.
Father, I know that I can trust the wisdom that is found in your Bible. Help me apply it to every area of my life, even in places where I have doubts or fears, and may I experience the God results that come from obeying you. Amen.
