When wisdom talks to you, jump up and listen! Make some changes. If God deals with an area of your life that you need to correct, be quick to change.
Now is the time to get rid of any habit in your life that isn't pleasing to God. You don't ever have to yield to sin's temptation because sin has lost its dominion over you (Rom. 6:14).

That means the answer to temptation is, "Don't do it." Turn it down. Don't consent.

You have a will of your own.

When wisdom talks to you, jump up and listen! Make some changes. If God deals with an area of your life that you need to correct, be quick to change.

The end of disobedience is death, but the end of walking with God is eternal life.

Do you see why it's so important to take time in the Word and in prayer? You need to tell God every day, "I put You first place in my life. I know if I follow You, everything else in my life will fall in place. Show me where I'm wrong. Correct me. Instruct me. Reveal to me the things I need to know." Then whatever He says to you, do it!

It's hard for you to hear while you're busy watching television. If you are distracted with other things all the time, you can't expect to hear God clearly on a regular basis.

You have to give Him the opportunity to talk to you by setting aside time to get quiet, study His Word and pray.

Hearing from heaven is the most important thing in your entire life, because man has never faced a problem big enough to stump God. God always has an answer. He always has a way to bring you out of any trial victoriously, no matter how serious it is.

Don't let yourself be found among the simple, the scorners or the fools. Start at the beginning of wisdom - reverence God. Then watch your circumstances begin to change as you choose the lifestyle of the wise!

The result is Proverbs 1:33 (AMP), "But whoso hearkens to me [Wisdom] shall dwell securely and in confident trust and shall be quiet, without fear or dread of evil."
