The Peace of Wisdom - Proverbs 3

Godly wisdom can be defined as the capacity to see things the way the Lord sees them and to respond according to His principles. One of the great benefits of this mindset is inner peace and contentment. Generally, when life's running smoothly and all is well with us and our loved ones, we have no trouble experiencing contentment. But so often when situations become difficult, God's perspective eludes us, and our peace is rapidly replaced with stress, anxiety, and fear.

To view a difficult circumstance from the Lord's perspective, we need to see it encompassed by the boundaries of His character and attributes. Even when the particulars of life are beyond our control, the One who rules the universe remains sovereign over all things - down to the smallest details. He loves us unconditionally and always works for our best interest. Therefore, if He has allowed a situation, there is a divine plan and reason, and the outcome will be for our good and His glory.

That wise perspective will lead to a godly response - complete confidence and trust in the Lord despite any pain or hardship. Because of the indwelling Spirit, we have the assurance that He is more than adequate for whatever comes our way, which means we are sufficient in Him.

When difficulty hits, don't let sound wisdom vanish from your sight. Keep your eyes on the Lord. By seeing every situation through His eyes, you can rest in His wisdom and good purposes. Then stress will lift, anxiety will be replaced with peace, and confidence in the Lord will silence your fears.

Current Sermon Series
      In this four-week series, we are going to take a different approach to how we look at Jesus. Rather than being the one with all the answers, Jesus is sometimes the one who asks us questions - questions that force us to decide what we really believe. In The Counselor, Jesus asks "Why do you doubt?," "Why are you so afraid," "Do you believe I can do this," and "Do you want to get well."

Last Week:
      We began this series with a man known as a doubter, Thomas. But, we learned that even the biggest doubters can one day have the strongest faith. Doubts are not the end of real faith.
      Sunday's message is available for streaming or for download on our website, just under the calendar, or by visiting us on iTunes.

Next Week:
      We continue our series as we hear Jesus ask the question, "Why Are You So Afraid?"
