Ephesians 5:15-17 (KJB) See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, 16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. 17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.
Wise living is found tucked into living in spiritual sync with God. This kind of life stands opposite of imprudent living or in existing without the working power and presence of God. Wise living includes walking upright, godly decision making, and in truly understanding and applying the will of God into our daily decisions.
Wise living is always concerned with taking the right route. It is choosing God’s directing, even when the immediate circumstances and our emotions may not make perfect sense. A child of God can relax and let God steer for He knows us and what is best in every situation of life.
The will of God can be discerned only inside a close personal spiritual relationship with Him. A sincere child of God purposely determines to walk wise and upright with Him and away from the temporary things and flesh-based pleasures working in this world.
