You are wise. Yes, you have a wisdom that no one else has. You have walked a path in your life that has given you an experience that you can look back on. Every single person has something to offer someone. There may be times in your past that you never want to reflect back on. We have all made mistakes that we regret. However, those mistakes and the way you pressed through them, has given you wisdom. So often people automatically think that someone who is wise, is someone who is on a different level of life than them. This is such a misconception. Someone who is wise is someone who has overcome. God carries us through seasons of our life, even we we do not recognize it. When we look back and see how we made it through, we can see where God saved us. It may have taken years to overcome and come to victory, but the journey becomes your wisdom to help others. Always remember that someone else in this world is walking through a difficult time in their lives and they may need your help. Sharing your experiences and your victory brings guidance and hope. Jesus has walked and carried you through each day. Allow the light of Jesus…that lives within you…to shine brightly for others to see. Your testimony is God’s glory reflected through you.
Choose my instruction instead of silver, knowledge rather than choice gold, for wisdom is more precious than rubies, and nothing you desire can compare to her. I, wisdom, dwell together with prudence; I possess knowledge and discretion. PROVERBS 8:10-12
Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever. DANIEL 12:3
God is with us.
