“Yet we do speak wisdom among those who are mature; a wisdom, however,
not of this age nor of the rulers of this age, who are passing away; but we
speak God’s wisdom in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God predestined before
the ages to our glory;” (1 Corinthians 2:6-7)
What is wisdom but knowledge and
understanding? Once you understand that
the Lord God who created all things is Sovereign over all He has created, you
begin a new journey. Then you know that
He who created all things has come to redeem those who are lost without Him. Then you walk in a life alongside Him, being
prepared to remain with Him forever. God
knows what He is doing and the truly wise live in this reality.
Lord, this age is filled with so many questions, but they are often the
wrong questions. This world is filled
with so many answers, but they are all too often the wrong answers. Turn my heart to that which is most
important, that I should have no other gods before You. Turn my heart to You and put me upon the path
of true wisdom that I would walk humbly with You, my Lord and Savior, now and
Lord Jesus, You have come to
bring true life to as many as believe.
Guide me in the way of truth that I would walk humbly with You abiding
in me and I in You. Teach me Your wisdom
and, by the power of the Spirit, make my heart malleable to the will of the
Father. Lead me, O Lord, in the way You
know I need to go that I may now and always walk with You. Amen.
