“If the foundations are destroyed, What can the righteous do?” (Psalm 11:3).

What are we living for? What makes us tick? Why do we do the things we do and not what we should do?

Is this some great theoretical essay into solving all our personal issues? Nope. It is a sincere, simplistic view that our actions and resulting beliefs come from what we pour into our lives. The foundation from which we stand is formed and defined by what goes into it and is best influenced by the One God Who created us.

We are under a constant bombardment of words that form ideas. These concepts may or may not be properly inspected or understood before we accept them as true.

We may nod our head in consent in order not to appear foolish but suffer in the end by partaking in something we do not completely comprehend. It would be “wise” to “understand” such issues in order to provide a wide and sure-footed foundation on which to navigate life.

Wisdom: An accurate perception into the true nature of things.

Understanding: The skillful application of this wisdom in practical situations.

These two words must be the basis from how we process life that ultimately produces our nature. The wisdom from above (directed by God) is best understood when applied according to His will. Often what may mistakenly be good intentioned, can be harmful and destructive. What goes in is easier to regulate than taking or getting something out after it has become integrated

The true character of Jesus Christ clears the way for the will of God and enables us to bend in His direction and not demand our own way. Walk with God and realize your foundation is best when it becomes His.

Your nature is more yielding, and you are not forcing your plan on God but trust in Him. God is the Creator; He is good and wants to place under our feet what matters most. His love and how to use it.

“Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore, get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding” (Proverbs. 4:7).
