If we are willing, we will hear wisdom everyday. We will also have a deeper understanding if we seek it out. But this is the key: we have to be willing and seeking.
Neither wisdom, nor understanding, will simply come to us, for we must be ardently searching them out in our lives. For when we do, the Scriptures tell us God will allow us to find Him and He will fulfill all our needs.
How would your life be different if it was filled with wisdom and understanding? Would you have avoided some mistakes and perhaps you would have been able to stay away from trouble? If you had used wisdom, would you still have that job you loved? If you had greater understanding, would you have said those things that hurt people? When we lack wisdom and understanding, we hurt other people, our relationships and ourselves.
What have you done today to try to make good, wise decisions that bring life for yourself and your loved ones? Have you provided security for them? Have you reached out to assure them of your love and affection? Have you found peace for yourself in God’s comfort and presence? Reach out to Him today with confidence that He will be with you, providing everything you need so you will have greater depth to love yourself, others and God, as well as make good decisions. Choose wisdom and understanding.
