THE WISE ONES

Dag Heward-Mills

READ: Ecclesiastes 9:1-18

…but wisdom is profitable to direct.

Ecclesiastes 10:10

The Bible teaches that there was a city which faced an impossible war. But a solution came from an unexpected source. A poor wise man came up with some ideas that delivered the entire city. He did not deliver the city by strength or by any military skills. He delivered the city by wisdom.

I believe that many women’s lives are like that desperate city which faced a hopeless array of military might. I say this because I am a pastor and I see it all the time. Many women are married to men who mistreat them, mishandle them and are unfaithful to them! It looks as if there is no way forward in their situation. They have only two options: divorce or a life of misery. Many women just exist in their marriages until they die!

On the other hand, there are many women who desire to marry. Their birthdays are almost like days of mourning. As each year goes by and they grow older, their little ray of hope diminishes. There are also many women who seek to have children. They try everything, but still there is no child. As the days go by, they become gloomier and gloomier. What can be done about these intractable problems? Today I present you with a fresh ray of hope for your situation. Woman, there is a way forward for you!

Wisdom is the principal thing (Proverbs 4:7,8). Ask God for wisdom regarding your situation. Get hold of wisdom and don’t put it down until a way has been made out of no way!
