“But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness.”
Spiritual wisdom..the kind that God gives of freely to those who ask Him, is not motivated by personal agendas or selfish schemes. That’s the world’s way of wisdom. God’s wisdom is completely pure, humble in spirit, peace loving, considerate, compassionate, merciful and kind. It considers the best interest of another brother or sister first and sows good seed accordingly. Godly wisdom will strive for peace in all areas of life. It will desire to maintain right relationships with family and friends alike. It will desire to sow peace in the home, the community, the school, the church and the work place and enjoy the benefit of a bountiful harvest of abundant life in Christ. A fruitful, productive life, free from strife and discord, and the chaos and unsettled circumstances that it brings.
If you have strife and discord in your life, ask God to speak His peace into your circumstances and into your unsettled situations. Ask Him to speak “peace” into your own heart and give you His wisdom in dealing with the issues at hand. Chances are He’ll tell you to take your hands of the problem, sit quietly and let Him work it out, while you remain still and peaceful. Peace in our heart is a mighty weapon of warfare in the spiritual realm because it can’t bring argument, or fear, or distrust, which are some of the the enemy’s tactics for throwing us headfirst into strife! He doesn’t know what to do when we’re at peace with our situations. Peace in our storm, will calm the waves and the Creator of the universe will cause the the winds of turmoil to die down and dissipate very quickly!
Great wisdom here. I, too, have found that what the Lord wants is for me to let go and let the Spirit do His work. This brings profound peace that the enemy cannot get past.
