David Brown was not just smart. He was equally wise. He attributed his profound insight from his father. David knew how to ask the right questions at the right time in the right place. He knew have to say the right things. Yet, he never sought to bulldoze over others to have his own way to accomplish his own personal ambitions. One day, some of his best friends came to him and asked him to share his secrets as to what makes him tick.
Steve cornered David in the hallway at North by North High in the small town of Thomasville. Steve and David had been friends since they were born. They were born and raised in Thomasville. Their parents had been best of friends since the day they both arrived in this world. As a matter of fact, David and Steve were born in the same hospital on the same day in the same labor and delivery room. Steve popped out first and then the doctor that swatted Steve on his rear end, swatted David as well.
They were the best of friends. Yet, there was one thing that Steve just could not wrap his mind around from the very first time they begin to talk. Steve had to study hard for his grades, whereas David just sat and listened to his teachers and ended up making straight “A’s.” Steve knew that David was super-duper smart. However, what Steve failed to grasp was that David was not simply intellectually and academically smart, but he was twice as wise. David knew that secret of real academic and intellectual success. It was spending time on his knees in prayer and seeking God’s face for each and everything he did. David would never do anything without taking it to God in prayer.
David learned how to pray, by listening to his dad pray, in the wee hours of the night. His father prayed about everything. Things that David’s childlike mind could not comprehend until he grew a little older and a bit wiser. In time, David found himself modeling his own father in his prayer-life. David developed a prayer-life and he did not simply say prayers, but he grasped what it meant to operate in God’s timing. In today’s podcast, Dr. Loggins helps us to understand how to operate in God’s timing, as we seek to be wise in averting the myriad of potholes of bad decisions, by confessing and repenting of our sins and getting right with God so that we don’t miss our blessings! God blesses us most when we do not approve of what God disapproves of, in these perilous times! The time for a change is now! Do not wait. Be wise and do it now! It is time, right now!
“But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come”
2 Timothy 3:1
