May I never have more zeal than wisdom is a simple prayer of mine.
It’s never good to be eager to do anything without knowledge, doing so is a sure way to secure your failure (1). So in all things you want knowledge and wisdom to exist before you venture off.
This statement isn’t to be confused with being sight driven and/or contrary to the manifestation of faith. Faith is a tool that ushers you into your true destiny.
Abraham, recognized in the Bible’s Hall of Faith, is known for his faith and obedience. Yet, even in his path to destiny, Abraham obtained some knowledge and he had some wisdom prior to trekking off on this great adventure with God.
Abraham had some know.
The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.
Abraham had some wisdom and knowledge from upon high, which worked as a catalyst to set his destiny in motion. You also need this in your odyssey into destiny and all throughout it.
By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going.
Considering these things, do not allow your go to exceed your know. Before you go and even as you go, allow God to equip you with some wisdom, knowledge, and direction for your adventure. Having confidence, that as you respond to Him in obedience He will continuously give you insight for your journey, but…
never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever….
…just go without it.
Enthusiasm without knowledge is no good;
haste makes mistakes.
[1.] Luke 14:28-32. In context, this scripture references the cost of following Christ, however the wisdom and principle in this message is applicable in many ways, including the above reference.
