Did you know that Isaac was an expert well digger?
He had all sorts of things going on that could have stopped him. He was running the family business after all.
In fact other people in the area were digging too, but they couldn’t find water.
Think about the tools they had, or should I say, they didn’t have?
No computers, satellite images, or water finding machines of anything like we have today.
All he had was The Wisdom of God. And that’s all he needed.
Is God’s Wisdom common sense?
I think that God’s Wisdom can look like common sense at times and this can make it seem like you just had a thought, but in fact it was a divinely inspired thought.
In Isaac’s case maybe he was able to see the lay of the land and know that part of the valley would be more likely to have water. And maybe he was getting water in 2 out of 3 times they dug?
But then perhaps they were digging 3 times as many as the others in the area.
My point is this, we can read the story and say it looks like a miracle, a miracle that we can’t have! And this is just not true!
Yes it was a miracle, because God’s Blessing, His Hand was on Isaac, just like it is on you. You can operate in this same Wisdom in your everyday life.
And by this I mean you can live by the same miracles Issac did.
Think of a Wall Street Investor that hits 2 out of 3 investments because of the Wisdom?
What would your income be like if you could keep winning at something you are selling? It is there for you too!
If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that gives to all men liberally, and upbraideth not (does not find fault); and it shall be given him.

How should I apply this Father?
Isaac could have only focused on what they know at that time when it came to well digging. But he added to it my Wisdom. So he know what they know, plus my Wisdom.
Where people miss it is when they think that 100% of the knowing will come from me as a download from Heaven. Where do you think the “Earthly” knowledge came from in the first place? From me!
So apply it like this: Learn about it, seek my input and listen for the update. Then move on it.
So I will make many choices today, do I ask for your Wisdom at every turn?
Let’s go back to the fact that you already know a lot of what you are to do. Asking for Wisdom for each and every choice will make a lot of noise. But get little results.
Look at it this way. Do what you see to do and be open to my Spirit when you should stop and ask for the next step. Just like when you are writing and you know that what you are trying to say something is not flowing, you stop and ask for Wisdom. It’s that simple.
Thank you Father, thank you for your time and Wisdom!
You bet Chip! That’s what I’m here for!
