All wise Heavenly Father, in Jesus’ Name, I come to You in light of Jesus dying on the cross and His resurrection. I acknowledge my need for complete dependence on You. You are the source of all that is good, true, and right. All wisdom and understanding comes from You as well. Verse 6-7 For the LORD gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding; He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk uprightly.

I ask that You lead me in Your Word to where wisdom is found for daily direction for living and comfort. Give me a heart and a desire for the spiritual milk of Your Word to mature in Godliness. 1 Peter 2:2As newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby.” Thank you that with Your wisdom, I can develop the ability to discern right from wrong and evil motives from others. Verse 10-11-12aWhen wisdom enters your heart, and knowledge is pleasant to your soul, discretion will preserve you; understanding will keep you, to deliver you from the way of evil.

It is a great blessing and gift from You that I do not have to look at life from a worldly view, but rather through a lens of the true wisdom and understanding found in Your Word, the Bible. Remind me often about how great a desire You have for all people to have the wisdom expressed in this chapter of Proverbs and that it is my obligation to do all that I can to share Your Gospel so that others can have it also. Verse 21-22a For the upright will dwell in the land, and the blameless will remain in it; but the wicked will be cut off from the earth.” Thank you for the wisdom in this chapter of Proverbs. Amen.
