All wise Heavenly Father, I come in Jesus’ Name to thank You for so willingly sharing Your unlimited wisdom with me, a born-again believer in the Lord Jesus Christ. I acknowledge what You share in Psalm 111, that Your way is perfect and that living in Your wisdom and trusting in Your Name is the only true way to a godly life. Verse 2-3 “The works of the LORD are great, studied by all who have pleasure in them. His work is honorable and glorious, and His righteousness endures forever.” I recognize that my own incapable way of living leads to meaninglessness and ruin. Without You, I am like a lost sheep, with neither purpose nor hope.
Direct me to accept that the only way to become truly wise is to fear (revere) You, and that You are the source of all true wisdom. Show me how to practice verse 10 in everything that I do by honoring You through praise, worship, prayer, and obedience to Your commandments. “The fear [reverence] of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; a good understanding have all those who do His commandments. His praise endures forever.”
Forgive me for the times I seek the easy way out by expecting You to solve my problems with no action taken on my part. Remind me of the Scriptures’ teaching that many times You have something for me to learn from difficult circumstances. There are multiple examples in Your Word, the Bible, showing that You want me to ask for wisdom and reassuring me that You will give it in order that I may learn how to handle any situation according to Your plan and purpose. Thank you that I can find hope, encouragement, and peace in Your infinite and perfect wisdom, which gives me a life full of meaning and driven by the pursuit of Your glory. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
