Wisdom & How I Fight My Battles

Wisdom & How I Fight My Battles

Hi ladies! I hope you’re having a good weekend; it always goes by fast. Today I’m sharing a few things that have spoken to me this week.

One of the questions I often get asked is, what devotion do I use? I read a lot of devotions throughout the week, and most of them are online.

The Bible App is one I use often. There’s a daily devotion, but they also have studies that you can read, and they have videos.

Another online app that I use is First 5 from Proverbs 31 Ministries, and I have Jesus Calling.

I love using all of those, but the one thing I try to do is open my Bible and read scripture. Sometimes I’ll read a book of the Bible during a week, or I’ll use the daily reading plan in the back of my Bible.

Opening up God’s word daily is important! Psalm 119:11 says I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.

I read this below from Lisa Whittle, and it spoke to me. Maybe because I have been reading through the book of Proverbs. I’m praying for wisdom, more than ever.

Activities of  the Wise:

Turn off the phone when necessary.
Get outside & enjoy nature.
Read the Word every day, more than any other source.
Move your body/treat it well.
Pray continuously.
Silent when overtires/over-emotional.
Memorizes scripture.
Seeks God first in every situation.
Drinks water.
Deals with things vs. stuffing them.
Has honest conversations.
Gathers wise counsel.
Steady vs. hype mentality.
Holy Spirit-controlled.
Hungry to learn.
Asks important questions/listen well.
Takes godly representation seriously.
Tests everything with the Word.
Takes everything to God.
Gets proper sleep.

Another thing I found online…This is how I fight my battles. If we are going to live victoriously, we have to be intentional. We have to spend time in God’s word. As Lisa said above, it’s better than any other source we can read.

Lastly, I heard this song, and it’s so appropriate for what we are going through right now. But also for those times, we experience deep hurt or loss.

I have been there when I couldn’t see how any good could come from my situation. But, that still small voice reminded me, It’s GOING TO BE OK.

Ladies, I hope you know how loved you are today. God has you in the palm of His hand!
