Book: Proverbs 23
“My child, if your heart is wise, my own heart will rejoice! Everything in me will celebrate when you speak what is right.”
I remember several years ago when one of my sons came to me and talked about what happened in a situation he was put in that was not comfortable. My immediate thought was to try to protect him but instead I started to ask him questions about the incident. He shared how he felt, what he did, what he said, and why. He sensed God guiding him through it. My heart leaped for joy knowing he did what was right. I was so proud of him! It also let me know that next time he is in a tough situation he is going to do the right thing for the right reason. He made wise decisions.
His Heavenly Father was even more thrilled with my son. Since true wisdom comes from God, it was His wisdom in my sons heart that came out. My son was demonstrating that he was allowing God to work in and through him.
Imagine, God says, “Everything in me will celebrate…” That is one BIG CELEBRATION! God wants you to have His wisdom in our hearts so that it will come out in our actions and words. When you allow God’s wisdom into your heart, you benefit greatly by doing what is best and right – God benefits by rejoicing and being extremely proud of you!
Take time today to seek God and His wisdom for your life. Use His wisdom in every action and word.
