A Winning Combination - Joyce Meyer Daily Devotion (February-13-2019)

Joyce Meyer (February-13-2019) Daily Devotion: A Winning Combination.

One of my favorite ways to hear from God is through conventional wisdom and common sense. Wisdom discerns truth in a situation, while common sense provides good judgment regarding what to do with the truth. I consider wisdom supernatural because it isn’t taught by men; it is a gift from God.

Many sophisticated, intelligent people lack wisdom and common sense. God’s Word says, If any of you is deficient in wisdom, let him ask of the giving God [Who gives] to everyone liberally and ungrudgingly, without reproaching or faultfinding, and it will be given him (James 1:5 AMPC).

I am amazed how many people think they must stop using common sense in order to be “spiritual.” Spiritual people don’t float around all day on clouds of glory; they live in the real world and deal with real issues in real ways. They need real answers, just like everyone else—and those answers are found in God’s Word and revealed to us by His Spirit.

We do the seeking, and God does the speaking, but He is the Spirit of Wisdom and will not tell us to do anything that is unwise. Many times we ask God to speak to us and lead us, but if He does not give us a specific word from Scripture or speak a word in our hearts, we still have to live our daily lives and make decisions.

God is not going to dictate every little choice we make, but He does give us wisdom and common sense—and those two make a winning combination.

Prayer Starter: Father, I ask for Your wisdom to live my life and make good decisions that I will be happy with in the future. Give me a heart to know and love Your Word so I can be even more sensitive to Your daily guidance. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
