Those Who Are Wise.


“And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.” Daniel‬ ‭12:3‬ ‭KJV‬‬


If you lack wisdom, simply ask God and He will freely give you wisdom. All you have to do is ask and He will lavishly pour out His Wisdom on you — the key is, if you ask. Fear will choke your ask. Fear will limit your ask. Fear will stunt your ask. Fear will limit your spiritual development and growth. Fear will exalt itself on the throne of your heart and try to lead and rule your soul. Fear desires to pull you away from God. Surrender to God and walk by faith. Let faith lead your path. 


Fear will cause you to shrink and hide your talents in the ground. Fear wants you to hide your talents and God-given abilities in the ground — don’t bury your talents. Ask God for wisdom on how to use your talents for His glory.


God has created you for such a time as this. He created you to impact and to transform the world. Through your example and obedience your life will redirect others back to Christ. 


Daniel‬ ‭12:3‬ ‭NLT‬‬ the New Living Translation states, “Those who are wise will shine as bright as the sky, and those who lead many to righteousness will shine like the stars forever.” Let your wisdom shine. Let your talents shine. Display your God-given talents and abilities for the world to see. Your wisdom was established by God in order to give Him glory. Let your gifts, character and ability reflect His Character in the Earth. 


Whether you’re in school, in business, serve in the home or in government let your wisdom, skill, character and ability reflect God’s Heart through the execution of your ideas and through the diligent work of your hands. Shine and represent God through your gifts.
