Wisdom – God’s fingerprint

There is no short cut with God.  When seeking success in the eyes of God, I love what the Bible says when it comes to God releasing His favor on us!

“But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” – James 4:6

Nothing trumps the reality of God’s fingerprint on your life, and knowing that He is pleased with you.  Wisdom is fulfilling His expectations, not the worlds or any person for that matter.

Wisdom – Owning It

If Wisdom is Knowledge applied, I need to figure out how to get knowledge!

In our heads, we know a whole lot, but the rubber meets the road when we apply that knowledge.  THAT’s when it becomes wisdom.

So, how do I get knowledge?

Grab your Bible and study the “Fear of the Lord”.

7-9 How does a man become wise? The first step is to trust and reverence the Lord! Only fools refuse to be taught. Listen to your father and mother. What you learn from them will stand you in good stead; it will gain you many honors.[aProverbs 1:7-9Living Bible (TLB)

Leadership 101 : ReCharge

There are some things I’ve just learned the HARD way.  One of those things is the principle of the rhythm of rest.  Rhythm revolves around a continuous pattern.

Seasons have rhythm.

Music has rhythm.

Our lives have rhythm.

Rest is something we only engage when we reach exhaustion.  In my experience, when we hit exhaustion and burn out, recovery time takes much longer than expected.

The rhythm of rest is God’s idea and His design for our weekly schedule.  Your day of rest is crucial for you to … yep you got it … rest.  This is our opportunity to ReCharge.

Many may say, I’ve got no time to rest.  Friend, you’ve been given a command from God.  Remember the Sabbath and keep it holy.  Keep it pure.  Keep it consecrated for … rest.

We need our leaders strong, healthy, and well rested.  ReCharge.  It’s God’s design.
