Further reading on Wisdom is 1 Samuel 9:27, where Samuel instructs Saul by showing him the Word of God.



We need to pray and obey God's leading when He speaks to us. Obedience is not to be an occasional event for us; it is to be our way of life. There's a big difference between people who are willing to obey God daily and those who are willing to obey only to get out of trouble. God certainly shows people how to get out of trouble, but He bestows abundant blessings on those who decide to live wholeheartedly for Him and who make obedience to Him their lifestyle. The only pathway to true peace is obedience to God.

Many people obey God in the big issues, but they aren't' aware that obedience in the little things makes a difference in His plan for their lives. The Bible says plainly that if we are not faithful in the little things, we will never be made rulers over much (see Luke 19:17). There is no reason for God to trust us with a major responsibility if we are not going to be faithful to do the little things He has asked us to do.
THE HOLY GHOST will guide us into ALL truth

I did some more scripture searching on these verses. At first, I thought it was talking about the verse, "because you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things.
This is Matthew 25:21. Although they are different verses, they are along the same concept in "my perception. If God cannot trust "His children" to be faithful in a few, or the small things which He asks, how can He be sure that we will come through when it comes to the big tasks or when many things are thrown at us. This is one way I figure the devil catches us off guard. he throws a bunch of obstacles our way and waits to see if we fail to remember what "is written" in God's Word, (as Jesus replied to him when He was tempted in the wilderness). If we know God's Word, and we are faithful to God by abiding by His commandments, then He will reward us, by giving us more wisdom.

But as I researched Luke 19:17, it lead me to 1 Corinthians 6:2, Which says; Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters? Then this lead me to Revelations 321; To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. (Rev. 5:10,; 11:12).

I strongly urge you to be obedient to God even in the smallest of things. A sixteenth-century monk called Brother Lawrence was well known for walking continually in the presence of God. He said that he was pleased to pick up a piece of straw from the ground in obedience to God and because he loved Him.

In the verse for tonight, God says He will make known His words to us if we listen to Him when He corrects us. If we follow His guidance and are pleased to do each little thing He asks of us, then He will open His wisdom to us, and we will have more revelation than we could ever imagine.

God's Word for You Tonight: If you are faithful in little things, God will make you ruler over greater things.

Good night to All and May God Bless!
