Rhapsody Of Realities August 2 2023 written by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome. The Topic of today’s Devotional is Discretion And Sound Judgment.
Our opening scripture comes in the Book of Psalm 119:130 and it says: The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.
The word translated “simple” above is the Hebrew, “pethîy”; it means to be foolish or silly. It also connotes being open-minded or seducible. It aptly describes someone who’s open to any new thinking about anything.
The open-minded or seducible person could hear, “There are three gods,” and agrees. Then, he listens to a podcast where the speaker says, “There’re actually five gods,” and he also agrees to that.
Soon, someone else comes up with another theory that says there’s no God; and he nevertheless agrees. No! That’s being a simpleton. Such folks need the entrance of God’s Word to give them understanding. It’s guaranteed: God’s Word will eject foolishness and impart wisdom to you. 2 Timothy 3:15 tells us that the Holy Scriptures are able to make you wise.
When people aren’t behaving or acting right, refer them to the Word. When the Word gets into them, there’ll be a transformation. If they were timid, they’d become bold, sagacious, discerning, discrete, perceptive and prudent.
The Word will cause them to deal wisely in the affairs of life (Joshua 1:8 AMPC). Colossians 3:16 says, “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom….” The more of the Word you have inside you, the wiser you become, such that even your choice of words in dealing with others will be gracious, excellent and loving.
The Word of Christ dwells in me richly in all wisdom; therefore, I’m sagacious, discerning, discrete, perceptive, and prudent. I exude wisdom and sound judgment. I deal excellently in all my affairs today, and I make accurate judgments and decisions, for the Word propels me from within, in Jesus’ Name. Amen..
2 Timothy 3:15
15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.
32 And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.
