All wise Heavenly Father, I come in Jesus’ Name to thank You for putting all the knowledge that I need for living the Christian life into Your Word (the Bible). It is a great gift that You give to me and all believers in the Lord Jesus Christ. It is wisdom that I cannot create with my own initiative, but takes study of Your Word to develop and use. 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.”
Thank you for how Your knowledge and wisdom direct me to avoid foolishness and ruin. I confess to You and ask forgiveness for the times when I act before asking for Your knowledge from Your Word so that I may have godly discretion about all situations. Verse 10-11: “When wisdom enters your heart, and knowledge is pleasant to your soul, discretion will preserve you; understanding will keep you.” I thank You for what is expressed by Paul in 1 Corinthians 2:12. The Holy Spirt gives me the ability to understand and believe what can only be understood spiritually. “Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.”
Thank you for sending Your Son Jesus to represent Your power and wisdom. I can never be in a place where You are not available to help. Direct me to experience all that You say about wisdom so that Proverbs 3:13 is a reality in my life. “Happy is the man who finds wisdom, and the man who gains understanding.”
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
