What is the connection between happiness and wisdom? Is there a connection. According to the Word of God, there is. As Proverbs 3:13 states, a man is blessed if He has wisdom. Other places in scripture, the word blessed can be translated as happy. Happiness is often based on our circumstances- and even though our circumstances are not always good, wisdom reminds us that “All things work together for good, to them that love God and are called according to His purpose.” Wisdom reminds us that in our moments of weakness- HE is made strong. I think it is because we realize that wisdom is so much more then head knowledge- but goes out into the way that we live our lives. That my friends, is understanding.
This is why I think it is so important to get yourself connected with a Bible reading plan, and even a group to be accountable to. It is why I talk about the Bible – and share devotionals on the Word of God – often. I truly believe that it is the bread of Life- that is sustains our spiritual walk with the Lord. I believe that we become spiritually sick without our time there.
This is why I am so excited about Friday’s here at Women of Worship. Two post will go live. One will be this awesome link up – it isn’t going anywhere. We will continue to offer these great, short devotions that meet people right where they are at. Then, we will also do a blog through the Bible post. We will move slow and steady through the Word of God- and I will choose one chapter a week to highlight.
The reason? God’s Word never returns void. It truly is the only thing that can bring life and blessing into your life.
