Divine Direction – Part 2


Pastor Louis Johnson, July 23, 2017

Wisdom to Discern

(1 Corinthians 16:6-9) Perhaps I will stay with you for a while, or even spend the winter, so that you can help me on my journey, wherever I go. 7 For I do not want to see you now and make only a passing visit; I hope to spend some time with you, if the Lord permits. 8 But I will stay on at Ephesus until Pentecost, 9 because a great door for effective work has opened to me, and there are many who oppose me.

(Proverbs 4:7 NLT ) Getting wisdom is the wisest thing you can do! And whatever else you do, develop good judgment.

DIRECTIONAL WISDOM

• WALK.

(Proverbs 13:20) Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm.

• ASK.

(James 1:5) If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.

(Psalm 32:8 NLT ) The LORD says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you.

• DECIDE.

(1 Thessalonians 3:1) So when we could stand it no longer, we thought it best to be left by ourselves in Athens.

(Psalm 32:8 NLT ) The LORD says, “I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you.
