Seek Wisdom – Bring the Solution

Books - seek wisdom

We have the answers needed, for ourselves and those around us. That doesn’t make us know-it-alls.

We have access to all the Wisdom we need, for ourselves and for others – all we have to do is ask.

We have access to the Holy Spirit who dwells inside us – we need only to be still and listen to him and he will give us the answers we need. Those answers are for our own circumstances and for those we pray for.

If all the above is true and it is – who are we praying for? Are we mere men who only reveal the darkness around us, or are we saints who bring light, aka, the answers and solutions to the needs of those around us?

Are we praying for those who are in the news that gets caught up in wrongdoing?

Are we praying for the problems in our neighborhood?

Do we seek wisdom from above for the answers we and others need?

Are we truly, truly praying for the solutions to these circumstances or are we praying for them to become “right” in our own understanding? I don’t know about you but oftentimes my understanding is a bit skewed to match my current circumstances – not the Truth of the reality around me. (Prov. 3:5-6) If we trust God and use his wisdom, we won’t need to lean on our own understanding.

I mention all of this because I think we as believers don’t actually believe. I mean that in the sense that we don’t act or respond to things like we believe. When others see us they don’t see us as an example of Jesus.

We can’t profess things we don’t live.

Maybe we are only doing what we’ve been taught to do. Maybe we are having such a hard time in our own lives that we only see things through that distorted lens.
I don’t know but I include myself in these things. I’m not exempt from reacting out of my own circumstances at times.

What I do know is this – speaking those things that are not, as though they were is a powerful weapon against darkness. (Rom 4:7) When we do this, we are declaring what God has spoken to us and it sets our eyes toward it. It’s a powerful weapon of encouragement to us and to others. Speaking the solution, as opposed to speaking only those things we see with our natural eyes change our focus to HOPE and dreams. When we only see and speak of darkness, there isn’t any hope, there is no life and when we live in that place, we have put our faith in the wrong kingdom.

Please understand, this is not a message of condemnation. No, it’s a message of hope and a reminder of the access we have so we CAN be light and salt in this world that is in need of us to stand up in who we are and reveal the kingdom to them – even if it’s by praying for them, declaring a future and a hope over them or by simply loving them where they are.

For there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus…

So let’s go out bring the answers and solutions to those around us and not spend our time pointing out darkness. Sure it’s there but what are WE going to do about it? Ask God, he’s waiting for you.

I am a baker and a blogger living in Nashville, Tennessee. I worked several years as a healing technician in the Healing Room ministries where miracles happened every week. I blog about those experiences and conversations I’ve had with God while going about daily life. I also blog and am passionate about food and using it as a means to get people to gather back around the table and have real face to face conversations again. I am a wife, a mother, a sister, a friend, a chef, a soapbox performer, an encourager and a lover of Jesus. My biggest desire is to see people free to know who they really are and be able to walk in that identity.

  1. Awww Ginny, you wrote it so well. Thank you for the glimmer and the push.

    To find a way to communicate the action, to walk out the behavior of, “…the work that Father says to do is to believe…” has lived in one of the more prominent corners of my mind for a long time.

    Just this morning I was able to share with a cousin from Rom 4:18+(less well than your blog but I didn’t have the link then 😉 “…Faith: Remember how long it took from the time God promised Abraham he would sire descendants to the time they had the son of Promise…and the impediments in between.
    And then when the beginning of that impossible thing came into sight there was more of life. Father did not deliver Abraham and his loves out of the troubles until Abraham took action to do what was right in that moment—perhaps he had revelation [leaving Ur, rescuing the Kings of the valley (and Lot), negotiating for Lot re Sodom, the sacrifice on the Mountain of God, getting a bride for Isaac, making more babies after Sara died]. Perhaps he simply took the next step that presented in front of him that was honorable and righteous.
    We are adopted as sons of Abraham, we are the sight of the promise Father made to him millennia ago. We are the Word of our Father that went forth to accomplish a specific purpose. Hebrews 11 references a few of the things that we may wish to imitate so that we too show our heritage after all—faith is pleasing to our Father! “
