Do you really think you are smart enough to direct your own life? (Proverbs 3:1-8)

Sometimes, as Christians, we don’t understand the power that we have. Pentecost teaches us that we have the almighty God! It’s the message that was given to the church in 1 John 4:4, “Little children, you are from God and have overcome them, for he who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.” When we walk with God, we understand that we are connected to the omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent Creator of the universe who loves me unconditionally.

Therefore, the question that remains: are we are truly walking with God? Are we living the way that God wants us to live? Is our marital life what God wants it to be? Is my work-life honoring God? Do my children see Jesus reflected through me? If not, then adjustments need to be made in order to ensure that we are living a life of wisdom because the wise walk with God!
