Wisdom From Heaven

If you are like most of us, you have prayed for wisdom. Perhaps that request is a normal part of your daily conversations with Abba, perhaps it is simply during times where you are facing difficult decisions. That is normal, that is fine; however, there is a scripture I would like us to reflect upon today –

“But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.” James 3:17

According to this passage, Godly wisdom is a reflection of our character. It is who we are in Him. This is not something that we learn through schooling that is knowledge; no, walking in wisdom is what we become as we allow God to mold us more and more with each passing day into His likeness.

Pure – what are we dwelling upon, thinking about, listening too, watching, reading, talking about?

Peace-loving – do we put our hearts into creating a peaceful atmosphere, or do we tend to be argumentative, stubborn, speaking harshly?

Considerate – are we putting the needs of other above our own, or are we demanding our own way all the time? Do we listen to others ideas, or are we determined that our way is best?

Submissive – this is NOT a ‘door-mat’ mentality, it is an act of loving obedience to our Lord God. Are we coming under His authority – submitting ourselves, willingly, lovingly, to those He has placed above in our lives (i.e. boss, pastor, spouse, parent)?

Full of mercy – Are we quickly moved with compassion when we see a need? Are we quick to forgive a wrong? Are we prompted to pray for situations that we cannot physically do anything for, but there is a great need for intervention? Or do we ignore things, hold grudges, shrug our shoulders and turn away?

Good Fruit – Is there evidence of God’s love in our lives as others observe our behavior, our attitude, our speech, our lifestyle?

Impartial – Do we treat all as equal in the sight of God, or do we tend to ‘favor’ certain people above others?

Sincere – Are the words we speak, the actions we take truly done from our hearts, or are we wearing masks so people don’t get a glimpse of the real us inside?

Don't ever change yourself to impress someone, cause they should be impressed that you don't change to please others -- When you are going through something hard and wonder where God is, always remember that the teacher is always quiet during a test --- Unknown
