The beginning of Wisdom is: get Wisdom (skillful and godly Wisdom)! [For skillful and godly Wisdom is the principal thing.] And with all you have gotten, get understanding (discernment, comprehension, and interpretation)”. Proverbs 4:7 (AMPC)
There are lots of ways to get lost in life—roads we travel that lead nowhere in particular or at the very least, nowhere good. Journeys we take, invitations we accept, and choices we make that don’t turn out the way we expected.
However, there is a way forward—another path mapped out for us without all the pain and pitfalls that caused us to stumble in the first place. Wisdom will lead us there for Holy Spirit Himself is the Spirit of Wisdom. He is carrying the heart of God and is the source of all wisdom. Questions are answered. Secrets are unlocked. Future plans defined and clarified.
You may need wisdom for a situation you are facing right now. Or something in the future that concerns you—even something from the past that haunts you still. We know in part, and see in part, about ourselves and others, therefore we may judge ourselves harshly for things we have done and say…what have you done! But Wisdom knows the “whys” of what you have done—the wounding that led you there—the love that will lead you away.
Wisdom sees the pain behind the pretending and the soft heart behind the hard exterior. Wisdom knows who you really are and speaks to who you are meant to be. Holy Spirit as Wisdom will teach you how to live now; daily bread answers to your every need; and then lead you in tenderness and love into all that is yet to be!
If you feel you are lacking wisdom today, dear one, just ask! This most gracious and giving God of yours will not judge you for the need—in fact he will rejoice that you came to Him in the first place, and then joyfully, liberally fill those needs in multiplied measure, so you may see as He sees!
Oh, treasured one, ask and receive, without hesitation or fear. God wants to share with you the wisdom of the ages and the wisdom you need for today!
Holy Spirit, I thank You that You are Wisdom; that You are the Spirit of Truth, and that You always know just what to say and what to do. I want to be like that too!
Your Word says that wisdom’s glory will wrap itself around me, making me victorious in the race. That is something I can not do on my own Lord, but only as I am connected to You.
Lead me and guide me today by Your generous hand. Cause me to know wisdom in my inner most being so that I can walk in step with you, fulfilling and living out Your life giving plans.
In You precious and Holy Name, I pray.
