God Can Turn Your Folly Into Wisdom
“The wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down.” Proverbs 14:1
Knowing Jesus has made a profound change in my life. He truly is my redeemer. I’ve gone from a woman of folly, to a woman of wisdom. Before I came to Him I was a brokenhearted, insecure, misguided mess of a girl. One day in the midst of hurt and confusion, He said, “My child, this is enough. Come follow me, let me show you the way.”
Do you know what he showed me? He pointed me to the book of Proverbs and showed me my folly. He showed me all of my sin and how I wasn’t respecting myself. He showed me how I was tearing down my own house. But then he showed me that I was better than that and I was created for so much more! Jesus took me by the hand, showed me how to be a Godly woman and taught me how to guard my heart, all through his word. He taught me the opposite of what everyone around me was doing, even other Christians! And because of that I am healed and redeemed. There is no more shame, guilt or compromising my worth and standards. The Most High has filled the empty hole in my heart and shown me a love that I never knew existed! Realizing that he has chosen me and has a plan for me has given me the worth, confidence and value that I was missing in my life.
If you are lost and following the ways of the world in your dating relationships and friendships, be encouraged to seek Jesus and let Him heal you. Know that the way of life He is calling you to is real, it is achievable and it will heal you. Ask Him to help you stop those behaviors that don’t agree with His word and who He has created you to be. It will pay off, for God is faithful! His love for you is greater than anyone you will ever know and he desires to see you prosper and grow into a woman of wisdom. Today, make the wise decision to choose His ways and leave your folly behind. You will experience many less broken hearts and much more joy, confidence and peace. Remember that a woman of wisdom is worth more than rubies and gold.
Prayer: Father, thank You for turning my life around. I realize that the only way is Your way and I surrender my will to Yours. I ask that You make me into a woman of wisdom who reflects your essence in every way. In Jesus name, Amen.
