I had no idea that it was possible to have God’s wisdom in real-time, meaning– moment by moment. It’s absolutely amazing! I hadn’t experienced it because I’d never learned to live like He’s wiser than I am. Sure, I would SAY He was wiser–but I didn’t LIVE like I believed it! However, when we begin to live in His wisdom, we begin to believe that “the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.” (1 Corinthians‬ ‭1:25‬) http://bible.com/59/1co.1.25.esv.

You see, as long as I believed I was wiser than God, I had no reason to seek Him. After all, what did God know about making money, friends, good grades, success, happiness, etc.—right??? However, as I began to passionately seek to know Him, I found He knows more than I do about–EVERYTHING! For example, one day I was dreading a legal research project and sat down to begin when I realized I hadn’t talked to God about what HE wanted me to do with my day. So I began to talk with Him and He immediately diverted me from the project. Instead, He gave me an idea for a new song. Next, He laid it on my heart to text a friend who needed encouragement. He still didn’t give me peace to begin my project, but instead, prompted me to take a hike with my son and his friend, who professed to be an atheist. On the hike, we had an amazing two-way discussion about the existence of God. Long story short—I ended the day at the home of the friend God told me to text earlier and she had already done the research I would have spent the entire day doing! In 15 minutes I got everything I needed because–that’s how God works.

When I seek Him first and do His will, this is exactly how He works out each day. I don’t worry that things won’t work out, rather, I am excited to see what He does next! The more I LIVE in HIS wisdom, the less I want to rely upon my own. He is wise beyond imagination!
