You will not stop, nor stumble

by DP

When you walk, you won’t be held back; when you run, you won’t stumble. – Proverbs 4:12

Have you ever wonder why you go through so many issues? It seems that every time you open your mouth, something wrong happens. Or what about the business endeavors? Every time you get into one, you come out bruised emotionally and hurting financially. It’s tough, I know, been there, done that, got the t-shirt. A constant rolling of thoughts that could lead you to despair.

God knew our propensity to miss the mark. To trust in our own senses and not seek a higher opinion of how to live this life. Salomon knew it very well and had experienced the do’s and don’ts of life and discovered that when our hearts surrender to God’s love and his wisdom is applied to our life, we will walk without distractions and run with confidence. This is the promised made to those who embrace wisdom and it is actually, practical advice.

There are seasons in life that we would like to run through but they are meant to be walked. Seasons where delicate issues arise and we have to ponder very carefully what we say and what we do. These are seasons that have the potential to show us a great deal and at the same time help us grow as individuals; we are to learn with every step we take. It can be times where your health, your children, your marriage, your work or your relationships are being tested, transformed or challenged. These seasons are to be walked. Then comes the time where we need to apply what was learned while we were walking. Time to execute and to bring to life the dreams birthed in our hearts. A time to run.

The book of Proverbs tells us that when wisdom is harnessed, in the walking season we would not be held back. Our pace will be strong, steady and confident. The world will see that there is something different about our stance, even when the situation we are in is not the best. Wisdom is on our side. And the time will come when you will be able to run and where there will be no apparent obstacle in your path and the road will be clear. It would seem to you that it is so, but you’re actually running in the midst of uncertain times and even then you will not stumble a bit; because Wisdom is at your side.

Wisdom is given by God for our good to all that ask for it. And when you do so, you will walk, you won’t be held back and when you run, you won’t stumble.
