Handle Matters Wisely

The head of Jesus. cll4him.sbcglobal.com


“He that handleth a matter wisely shall find good;
 and whoso trusteth in the Lord, happy is he.”
Proverbs 16:20 (KJV)

               Solomon, the wisest man ever, wrote these words. We all know there are at least two ways to handle Christian issues—the world’s way or the Biblical way. The verse talks about matters being handled ‘wisely.’

               When we handle situations in the Biblical way, we honor God. Conversely, if a circumstance is handled as the world does things, we run the risk of causing more hurt.

               The rest of the story in this verse is: When we trust the LORD to work on our behalf we are carefree and blessed beyond measure.

                              When issues present themselves to us, we need to 1.) Pray about them, 2.) Give them to God, and 3.) Leave them with Him. This way of operating takes practice. Our leaving those circumstances with God both honors and pleases Him.


               Would our woes become things we could manage if we practiced these three steps for all our needs? I believe the answer is yes.

  1. Hi Cecelia! Welcome back! I hope your blog-break was healing for you.
    The most important step in giving it to God, is "Leave them with Him". I'm so bad at that! I'll drop off my worries and walk away...only to return and take them back from Him again. Sigh...
    I want to be 'carefree and blessed', so I'd better keep working on letting Him intervene and heal.
    Blessings!

  2. Ceil: This "leave it to the LORD" is something we have to learn to do. I had to learn it and I believe every child of God has to, also.

  4. Oh yes...Pray first always! Give them to God...we always try to do that...but leaving them there? That's the hardest part. Sometimes I have to go back and start all over again 1. Pray 2. Give them to God 3. Leave them there....okay...back to #1. again. However, the more we practice these steps, the easier they will become. Thank you for this reminder today. I needed it!

  5. As a doer, step three can be really hard for me. Yet, He continues to teach me, and is so patient. And His ways bring peace.

  6. If I say it aloud, "Lord, I'm putting this in your hands," It helps.
