God’s wisdom; guide to better living
Today’s devotion is based on Proverbs 2:6, “For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.”
Our Lord gives us intelligence, reasoning, and personal choice, where our emotions, senses, conscience, and values are deeply engaged, challenged, and affirmed as we act. God has created us to be in a constant relationship with him. From his words in the Bible, we grow in knowledge and understanding. Listen and rest in the deep comfort of his wisdom so that you will become wise in the ways of the Lord.
Please pray with me the prayer for today: Heavenly Father, gracious God, creator and sustainer of all things, seen and unseen; thank you for being patient with me. I know I have so many questions, doubts, and fears. Thank you for coming to me again today, reaching out in love to draw me close to you. Be with me in my thinking, relationships, decision-making, and actions today. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
