Wisdom for the Asking

Description

Seek out seasoned saints, read Scripture and ask the Spirit to guide you -- these are paths to godly wisdom.

Proverbs 3:21-22 (NIV®)                      

My son, preserve sound judgment and discernment, do not let them out of your sight; they will be life for you.

 

Perhaps, like many of us, you have chosen a pathway that, at the end of a lot of time and energy, did not lead to the happy outcome you had anticipated. We didn’t see that when we first decided to walk that way. I don’t think rational people think, “I’m going to do this. It will be painful and cost me lots of money, and in a few years I will be filled with regret. Let’s go!” Sometimes it can be hard to distinguish between good and evil, and each of us will learn some lessons the hard way, by experience. But there are some things you can do to avoid mistakes. Work to obtain wisdom and understanding. Seek out friends who have more God-experience than you do, and listen to their advice. Read Scripture, and ask the Holy Spirit to open your heart and mind to its meaning and application to your life. Wisdom is there for the asking, so let’s ask!

 

PRAYER

Heavenly Father, I need Your help to distinguish between good and evil. Thank You for Your Word that gives light to my path. Surround me with people who help me to make decisions that will honor You. In Jesus’ name, amen.
