What's your house built with?

Proverbs 24:3 -6

A house is built by wisdom and becomes strong through good sense. Through knowledge its rooms are filled with all sorts of precious riches and valuables.

The wise are mightier than the strong, and those with knowledge grow stronger and stronger. So don't go to war without wise guidance; victory depends on having many advisers.

Wisdom to share with our friends and family. What kind of wisdom are you filling your home with? Are we well rounded? Are we learning a little bit about everything? Are we listening for God's instructions? Are we listening for the things that God wants each of us to be obedient about and to grow and learn from these things?

To win this battle of life we must have the wise guidance of the Holy Spirit that we listen to and respond to. Christ left us with the Holy Spirit so that we would have a guide. A guide that knows the directions and path we need to follow, but do we pay any attention?

Indeed, we grow much stronger with God's Hand leading us along the path. We grow much stronger when we open His Word and read and wait for His guidance! It's easy to go to the gym (maybe not for those of us allergic to sweat - anyway another problem) to pick up weights and get stronger, but to allow God to lead our choices takes real courage and faith! But it is awesome to watch Him Work, when you know without a doubt this isn't something you would ever do on your own - it's only God!

Sweet blessings,
