Scriptures: Proverbs 2:1-2, 5-6 1My son, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you, 2turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding— 5then you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge of God. 6For the LORD gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. (NIV)
Nugget: Wisdom & understanding are two things that many of us seek. At times, we search for these in books, websites, friends, & family; however, the one place that they’re most easily obtainable is with God. But do we take the time to spend with God, read His word, & listen to His voice? Do we seek the knowledge & answers that can only come from Him? I know I’m guilty of seeking these things from many other sources first; however, I’m learning that God should always be my first choice.
Take time today to pursue God in the things you are seeking answers for; the time you’d spend doing other things---seeking other people, ideas, etc., go to God for these. Grow your relationship with Him to find the knowledge, wisdom, & understanding that only He can provide.
Quote: “May the strength of God pilot us, may the wisdom of God instruct us, may the hand of God protect us, may the word of God direct us. Be always ours this day and for evermore.” - St. Patrick
