Every time we have an experience, whether good or bad, we always begin to relate the experience by saying “Do you know what happened to me?”
Recently, however, the thought struck me, do things happen to me or for me?
I am a strong advocate for the word of God. I build my life on it. There is a verse that says that all things work together for my good.
So I began to think, if whatever is happening is going to work out for my good in the end, then really and truly things are not happening to me, they are happening for me.
The lost of my job opened opportunities for me that would never have been possible if I was still in that position. The challenge with my health caused me to change the way I take care of myself and the choices that I make concerning food…

“Get wisdom! Get understanding! Do not forget, nor turn away from the words of my mouth.”
By: Apostle Diann J. Wilson
Today the scripture is commanding us to get. Get what? Wisdom! Understanding. The word get is an action word!
G – go after it. We must seek for wisdom. We must pursue and go after it. Remember when you wanted your driver’s license? You did not stay at home and pray. You took driving lessons, practiced and did the test. You went after what you wanted. You must do the same for wisdom. Go after it.
E – embrace it. How did you embrace your driver’s license? You used it. As a young driver, you loved to be behind the wheel. You were excited to use your newly acquired skills driving skills. The same goes for wisdom. Embrace it and use your newly acquired skills.
T – thank God for it. I am sure that you were grateful when you got your license to drive (you had new-found freedom!). Well, be grateful for the wisdom that you have received from God and you will GET more wisdom and understanding.
My friend, wisdom and understanding are waiting for you from the word of the Lord. Would you go after it? Would you embrace it and then be thankful that you have it? My prayer for you today is that you would GET wisdom and understanding and live a fulfilled life in Christ.
For the month of June, our series will be called “The Shift”.
This series is based on the book, “The Shift: What is at end of your yes to God?” Written by Apostle Diann Wilson, with Brent Anthony. The information in this book has been life-altering, not only for myself, but also for readers in different countries!
The first step to living the abundant life in Jesus Christ, fulfilling your destiny, to becoming a son of God, to manifesting the power of God’s Kingdom on the earth, is to say “Yes” to God. But it doesn’t stop there.
Every day we must walk out that “yes” to God. But how do we do that? Well the Shift is here to help.
Each step is outlined in a practical way and I hope that these devotionals encourage you to get the book so that you can read for yourself and experience the break through and liberty that comes from saying and living your “yes” to God!
Thanks for reading!
