If you are wise and understand God’s ways, prove it by living an honorable life, doing good works with the humility that comes from wisdom. (James 3:13 NLT)
When you are wise you will use sound and discerning judgment concerning what is true or false, proper or improper. You will be discreet, -opposed to being foolish, especially in the affairs of your life and conduct. James tells us in verse 3:13, “If you are wise and understand God’s ways, prove it by living an honorable life, doing good works with the humility that comes from wisdom.”
If you are a believer in Christ you will seek wisdom and understanding by seeking God’s word! You will learn the truth and the truth will set you free! You will no longer be in bondage to sin, and you will do whatever it takes to live a good an honorable life before The Lord, and others! You will be wise in God’s eyes, not your own! Are you being wise? Are you living your life for Jesus? Prove it! Humble yourself before The Lord and seek the wisdom and understanding that only He can provide! Take advantage of what Jesus can do for you today! Live holy as he is holy!
Heavenly Father, God Almighty,
You are so loving and kind! Your mercy is so awesome and undeserving, and no matter where we are in this walk of life, you are always there for us, and are never against us! Thank you for that! You reveal your word and your ways to those who have faith and put their trust in Jesus. Thank you for that! You give us the wisdom and understanding that’s needed to live a good and honorable life. Thank you for that! And without the sacrifice of your Son we would be nothing, we would be going nowhere but down! Without Jesus leading our lives we are lost in this hopelessly, hopeless world! Thank you Father for giving us a savior! We choose to be holy as He is holy! We pray for the return of our mighty King to come quickly! We pray for Heaven on earth! We seek your way not our way! We seek your will not our will! I say again come quickly! Make it so! In Jesus’ name I pray!
