IMG_2349Though good advice lies deep within the heart, a person with understanding will draw it out (Proverbs 20:5).

If you are passionate about anything; know that you are equipped with purpose deep within you to do it. Everything you need is already on the inside of you. Drawing deep from within yourself, while staying humble before the Lord will allow that purpose to rise up within you. You are able to draw those things out when you are submitted to His Word. That’s what makes a person of understanding. When you draw on the strength of God, you are a person of understanding. God has placed his strength on the inside of you. Proverbs also tells us that a person of understanding delights in wisdom. So, you go after the Word of God! A person of understanding is even-tempered. You don’t allow situations and people to cause you to loose your self-control. A person of understanding is not easily led astray and maintains peace and order (Proverbs 10:23; 115:21; 17:27; 28:2).

Draw from the deep resources that God has placed on the inside of you. Don’t just live on the surface. As you keep your heart, mind, and soul open, and obey the Word of God, His purposes will become clearer. Then you will live in the abundant life God has in store for you!
