“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.
