Go for Understanding

Ephesians 5:17 (NET): "For this reason do not be foolish, but be wise by understanding what the Lord’s will is."

Lara was a very fruitful believer because she was truly wise. In every place she found herself, she first sought to understand God's will for sending her there. Then she would properly manage her time and resources to ensure that she fulfilled God's purpose for her being there. This was why she was never found wasting time on things that were not essential to fulfilling her purpose in any location she found herself.

Unfortunately, not many believers are like Lara. It is possible to be a believer and yet remain foolish because of a lack of spiritual understanding. Today's Bible verse is directed to believers, instructing them not to be foolish but to be wise. We also see from the verse that the way to be wise is to understand what the Lord's will is. It is one thing to know the will of the Lord, but it is another to understand it. For example, a person may know that lying is not the will of God, but he walks in divine wisdom when he understands that his tongue is one of the powerful assets that God has given him, and telling lies diminishes the power of his tongue to decree things and see them come to pass.

Go into today remembering that the secret to walking in divine wisdom in any area is understanding God's will in that area. "In all your getting, get understanding" (Proverbs 4:7).

Prayer: Lord, help me understand your will for me in every situation and walk in it. In Jesus' name, Amen.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
