4 Ways to Move Forward with Wisdom for February

Lately I’m thinking of a few pieces of wisdom to guide February’s choices:

  1. Just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should. Jesus said “no” to certain tasks often (Mark 1:35-38). Jesus also followed the exact instructions of the Father and did not go beyond this (John 14:31).
  2. Lots of activity isn’t the same as bearing eternal fruit for God’s kingdom. We’re told in John 15 to abide with Him because apart from Jesus we “can do nothing.”
  3. Our educated, strategic, and humanly good plans don’t replace the wisdom of the Holy Spirit. We’re told in Proverbs 3 to “trust in the Lord” and “lean not on [our] own understanding.”
  4. If we’ve gone ahead of God in January–perhaps with unwise choices or alliances–we can pray that God “releases [our] foot from the snare” (Psalm 25:15), that we can live free from condemnation (Romans 8:1), and that God would mercifully make “all things work for good” (even our mistakes). 

I pray that we spend our weekend praying for wisdom for February.
