Use the Knowledge That God Will Give You

Last updated on:

Once God starts to transmit His knowledge to you on a wide variety of matters and issues in your life, your job will then be to take that knowledge and use it and apply it in your everyday life.

Though this principle sounds very simple, many Christians keep getting themselves into trouble either because they are choosing to directly disobey a direct order from the Lord, or they are not stopping and thinking out very carefully what their next step should be.

Here are three very good verses telling us that the wise and prudent man will “consider well his steps” and that the “plans of the diligent” will lead to plenty. However, the reverse is also true – that everyone who is “hasty” in their decision making will be lead into poverty.

In other words, God is wanting you to stop, think, and evaluate very carefully what choices you have to make when you are faced with having to make a decision on something.

In our fast-paced society, many people are living their lives in too much of the fast lane. They are so mentally wired, they are constantly making too quick and too hasty of decisions without thinking things all the way through.

As a result, they keep falling into one jam after another, and they are then forced to have to spend extra time to dig themselves out of the jams they have fallen into.

These next three verses are a true word to the wise from the Lord.

  1. “The simple believes every word, but the prudent man considers well his steps.” (Proverbs 14:15)
  2. “The plans of the diligent lead surely to plenty, but those of everyone who is hasty, surely to poverty.” (Proverbs 21:5)
  3. “A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself, but the simple pass on and are punished.” (Proverbs 22:3)

Remember – God will at times make you seek and search after His knowledge and wisdom on a particular matter. This means that at times you will have to take your time and think things out and think things all the way through before you can “find” what God’s answer may be on a particular issue.

This is part 11 of our 19 part series on Seeking After The Knowledge of God.
