Seeking God’s Wisdom
Would others identify wisdom as one of your gifts? How does it show? We need wisdom to understand who we are, what we are, and where we are going. With God’s wisdom, we know Whose we are. Proverbs 3:7 warns us: “Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil.” Without wisdom, life becomes disjointed, lacking direction and purpose. Proverbs 4:11 promises, “I guide you in the way of wisdom and lead you along straight paths.” With wisdom, we are able to understand reality and live a prudent life. With wisdom, we are motivated to make necessary changes in life.
Life is like a puzzle. Wisdom enables us to fit the pieces together. God has made the wisdom to live life skillfully available to all believers. We live a life that is very complex, full of pressures, burdens, and traps. No wonder Solomon wrote in Proverbs 3:13-14, “Blessed is the man who finds wisdom, the man who gains understanding, for she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold.”
Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father, help me to seek Your wisdom rather than the world’s wisdom. Use me as Your instrument of love, grace, and mercy. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
Blessings on your Journey as a Steward!
