Wisdom and Patience

One of the characteristics of a wise man is patience. Such a person understands the value of taking the appropriate time to make a decision. He is never forced into making a decision because of circumstances. You see decisions made in a haste often result in mistakes. Those decisions are generally made based on fear of an unwanted outcome or missed opportunity. However a child of God ought to live by faith and therefore does not operate by fear - Isa 28:16.

In 1 Sam 30:6-8. David was faced with a significant challenge. His men were thinking about stoning him because they had lost their families and all their possessions. David responded by strengthening himself and inquiring from God in order to find out the next steps. He could have responded in a haste in the face of such hostility but he chose to be patient in order receive instruction from God.

Friend you will be faced with choices that will attempt to force you into a hasty decision. You must resist the temptation to decide before. Take the time you need in order to access the divine wisdom of God. As a result you will make better decisions.

Have an exceptional day!
