Life is hard.

All of us face many pressures every single day.  Stress can come from relational conflicts, a to-do list that feels impossible, health troubles, financial troubles, feelings of failure and more.

Some days, as I lay my head on my pillow, I wish life was easier.

Today we are going to take a closer look at the wisest man who ever lived (except for Jesus 😉 ) and see how he dealt with his overwhelming responsibilities as the King of Israel.  Join me on this video as we examine 3 Ways To Make Your Life Easier – Lessons from a Wise Man named Solomon, based on 1 Kings 3.

Have you ever heard of the acronym KISS – it stands for “Keep it Simple and Straightforward”.  It seems that we are all drawn to simple and easy things yet life is complex.  We live in the Age of Information. Knowledge is always — just one click away and we tend to think that knowledge will make our lives easier.  But information cannot compare to the revelation of God’s Word!

Life is too complex and the road too unknown, for us to google all of our answers.  Only the Lord knows every detail of our lives and what is best for us.  And while life will always have twists and turns and trials and difficulties, life is easier when we follow God’s will and God’s ways because we can have peace knowing that he is with us and guiding us.

Too many times I’m tempted to think I already know the answers to my own problems.  Look at what Proverbs 3:5,6 says:

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make straight your paths.

It says – DO NOT lean on your own understanding.  This means we must reject our own understanding.  Do you reject your own understanding?  The rejection of our own understanding — is a redirection to seek the Lord’s direction.

So what is getting in the way of God’s wisdom in your life? 

Becoming wiser is as simple as asking God for wisdom, reading God’s Word daily and then applying what we have learned.

In 1 Kings 3, Solomon asked God for wisdom and this pleased the Lord greatly.  God answered his prayer and it says of Solomon:

29 And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding beyond measure, and breadth of mind like the sand on the seashore,30 so that Solomon’s wisdom surpassed the wisdom of all the people of the east and all the wisdom of Egypt.31 For he was wiser than all other men, wiser than Ethan the Ezrahite, and Heman, Calcol, and Darda, the sons of Mahol, and his fame was in all the surrounding nations.32 He also spoke 3,000 proverbs, and his songs were 1,005.33 He spoke of trees, from the cedar that is in Lebanon to the hyssop that grows out of the wall. He spoke also of beasts, and of birds, and of reptiles, and of fish.34 And people of all nations came to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and from all the kings of the earth, who had heard of his wisdom.
(1 Kings 4:29-34)

God wants to give us more wisdom!

What do you need to change in your life, in order to gain more wisdom from God?

Perhaps we need to spend less time scrolling on social media or maybe we need to rise earlier in the morning to get into God’s Word or maybe we need to spend less time trying to please the voices of friends, family or this world.

Remember this – KISS.

Keep it simple and straightforward.

May we be women who are known for the simplicity of reading God’s Word – just one chapter a day – and then applying God’s Word and wisdom to our daily lives.

Keep Walking with the King,

Life’s Lessons Learned

lesson in life a wise man

“Stored personal memories along with handed down collective memories of stories, legends, and history allows us to collate our interactions with a physical and social world and develop a personal code of survival. In essence, we all become self-styled sages, creating our own book of wisdom based upon our studied observations and practical knowledge gleaned from living and learning. What we quickly discover is that no textbook exist how to conduct our life, because the world has yet to produce a perfect person – an ideal observer – whom is capable of handing down a concrete exemplar of epistemic virtues. We each draw upon the guiding knowledge, theories, and advice available for us in order to explore the paradoxes, ironies, inconsistencies, and the absurdities encountered while living in a supernatural world. We mold our personal collection of information into a practical practicum how to live and die. Each day we define and redefine who we are, determine how we will react today, and chart our quest into an uncertain future.”
― Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

3 Ways To Make Your Life Easier – {Life Lessons From a Wise Man Named Solomon}

lesson in life a wise man

For some reason, out of all the Bible portions, I’ve enjoyed Matthew chapter two a lot. Here are some quick lessons I learned from the wise men. I believe this season would be a great time to share it with you.

1.    Never give up

Imagine if the wise men had gotten tired waiting for that bright star and had decided to quit that night and go to bed. They would have easily missed the star that would eventually lead them to Jesus. Is it not also interesting that majority of those who got healed during the time of Jesus on earth, were healed because of their persistent spirit? What have you given up lately that you should not be quitting?

2.    Decide to step out

What a waste it would have been if they would have given up after seeing the star! Sometimes stepping out by faith is doubtful, scary and lonely but if your eyes are on Jesus, it will most certainly be worthwhile. As we step out into a new year, are there areas that you have to step out of fear and into by faith?

3.    Don’t partner with the visionless

They might have been called wise men but they sure made some costly mistakes. If I could I would ask them this, “If it is you who saw the star, why ask the ones who haven’t seen what you have?” If the vision is yours, don’t even try asking someone who does not share the vision for their suggestions, advice, opinion or any kinds of thoughts. They are likely to endanger your vision.

4.    Super Focus

These wise men were focused but they needed more than just that. They needed to be super-focused. Especially when the enemy is after you to distract you from your big goal. They lost their focus to the more obvious reality, the palace. Surely the King must be living here, right? Well, think again! You have a star to focus on. You are not called to do the obvious. Let’s keep going!

5.    Guard your secret place

King Herod called them up secretly and whispered lies into their ears. Weren’t these wise men called and guided by God? And now here they are sharing their heart and ears to the natural. Guard what you listen to, where you listen from and whom you share your time with. Give God all our heart, time and energy. Whom are you listening from today? And whose report do you believe?

6.    Trust God over your intellect

If you are going to trust God, here’s a piece of advice, your thoughts are not His thoughts and your ways are not His ways. The only way you are going to follow God’s plan is when you get out of that palace; that place where your intellect rules. The Bible says when they resumed the journey, they saw the star. God’s guiding star was hidden by the palace of intellectual thinking. Sometimes it is tempting to trust our logic but let’s obey His words over our mind.

7.    Revelation leads to Worship

No, it’s not the fast-paced songs or the slow good lyrical songs that help you worship. It’s your personal revelation of who God is that leads you to a place of reverent worship where you do not feel the need of a worship leader or music to get you there. The wise men knew who Jesus was and therefore required no high adrenaline music, no introduction, no motivation. Absolutely nothing but the revelation of God brought them to their knees in worship.

8.    Worshipped Him for who He was

When many worship Jesus for healing, for deliverance, for saving their souls, the wise men worshipped Jesus for who He was. They did not see Him heal the blind, raise the dead or walk on the waters but they worshipped Him. Your life will truly change when you begin to worship God for who He is and not for what He can bless you with.

9.    They gave the best

The wise men did not offer Him a gift for the sake of giving something. They did not settle at giving Him some super absorbent diapers (not that diapers existed then. Oh come on! It’s simply an example) but they bought riches with them. They gave him the best that was available back then. In giving today to God or to someone in need, can we give our best possible gift? It may or may not please man, but let’s give in a way that makes heaven proud.

10.  Now for my tenth point

Well, I decided not to make up a point to just complete my 10 point list on the wise men. So I’ll let you do it.

What should be the tenth point?

What have you learned from the wise men that you can add to this list?

Wishing you the blessings of this season. I can’t wait to jump in to the next season, next year with you.

Thank you for joining me on my blogging journey. I “hope” to keep my next year’s posts shorter.

Have fun!
