Solomon, in all his glory, failed to realize that ‘wisdom whispers.’
Wisdom doesn’t pursue us, we pursue her. And when we grab hold of Wisdom, we must do everything in our power to keep her close.
We must continually block out the noise of the world, so we can hear her whisper truth and life into every part of our being. (Day 1)
Wisdom whispers to us every day.
I think it’s easy to forget that I have the ability to grab onto wisdom that is greater in my life on a daily, moment-by-moment basis. I fail to recognize that if I would just turn to God, I’d have so much more at my fingertips because I’m maneuvering through life with his resources rather than mine.
As I recently read through Sarah Koontz’s new study, Wisdom Whispers: A Study of King Solomon, I was reminded of how much I need to focus my day first on the wisdom of God.
Lately, I’ve been on a journey towards finding my purpose and what God has placed me here on earth to do. And as I’ve traveled that journey, as I’ve sought God and the gifts and talents and themes he’s placed in my life, I’ve found a truth and a passion for moving forward that wasn’t there before.
I’ve found exactly what Sarah reminds us on Day 1 of the study:
Wisdom whispers truth and life into my whole being.
There’s no doubt in my mind that sitting down in quiet to read this study and digging into the wisdom that King Solomon left for us to discover aided in my journey towards finding my passion and calling. Without making that space, I wouldn’t have heard clearly what God was speaking to me. What His wisdom was trying to remind me, as I already knew the truth of my purpose. He had revealed it to me many years ago. And I had forgotten. But now that I know, I’m going to step forward with the second truth that wisdom whispers to us:
Wisdom whispers be faithful and finish well.
How are you going to finish well today? What is one small step that you can take to push you forward in being faithful in the life God has given you? My next step for this summer is to offer a Bible study for some of the girls in our youth group. To provide them an opportunity to see family, and learn what it means to study God’s word. It’s my next place to be faithful. So, what does your next step look like? Perhaps it’s just putting yourself out there and asking how you can serve. Or inviting someone in to your home so they can see what it’s like to be part of a family. Maybe it’s to ask one question for more information. Whatever it is, I encourage you to take one more step in faithfulness today so that you too can finish well.
