Truth Statement: I Have Wisdom

We’ve all been there. The conversation starts off like a discussion and somehow lands in the spotlight of debate. Starting in your gut, the pulsing of what you’ve always believed, what you’ve always thought, now meets with the arguments of opposing view points leaving you unsteady and unsure.

Or you’ve been here too: the place where the road y’s. Do you choose the path to the right or to the left? Do you take that job offer, or that one? Do you respond to that email with that comment or something else? Do you say yes to this or no? What do you think? What do you know?

the lie: I don’t know, I’m not smart, I’m uneducated, I don’t know what to do.

Your thoughts might be deeper than your words, so your tongue is held back, and that’s ok. Your direction might not come glaring in neon lights, so you proceed with caution, and that’s ok too. Your values and ideals and convictions might not yet be ready for words, but none of that means you don’t have access to the answer.

I’m learning this one, in a new way. Wisdom sometimes convenes in the waiting. Wisdom sometimes is deeper than what you know. When I find myself in a complicated conversation, I’m learning to wait for the still small voice. When I am in the smallest but hardest of decisions, I am waiting for His guidance.

God is always speaking. Holy Spirit is always with you, in everything. Listen for Him. You have wisdom because He dwells in you. Just ask Him.

the truth:
For the Lord gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding. Proverbs 2:6

  2. I am so comforted by these words this morning. I’ve been struggling with feeling “not smart enough” this past year and it’s really been heavy on me. During conversations sometimes I don’t feel that I “know enough” to speak up, or I don’t say what I’m thinking in fear that it wont sound ‘educated’. Your words reminded me that that doesn’t mean I’m not smart, but that maybe my thoughts go deeper than words.. or that my ideas just aren’t ready for words 🙂 Love this so much!!

      I want to hug you- I so understand how heavy that lie can feel. Keep holding on to His truth about you, it’s like water to a weary plant- it will strengthen and build you up each time you drink it in. 🙂 Blessings to you friend!!
