“Think over what I say, for the Lord will give you understanding in everything” (2 Timothy 2:7).
We know that Mary pondered things in her heart. Take this as instruction by example. Scripture should be “inwardly digested”. The Holy Spirit will bring to mind then those things you need to know. Let Him guide you to fill your mind with Christ so that you will have what is needed as guidance. His grace will grow in you what is necessary to become like Christ.
Lord, You know what the road ahead will bring. Guide me to take in all that is needed that I may grow in faith. Bring to remembrance those things that I need to ponder. Guide me in all goodness so that I may now and always be led by Your Spirit, seeing through the wiles of the wicked one. Grant that I gain understanding of these things and wisdom to practice them as I walk with You in the way of salvation.
Lord Jesus, You are the One who makes salvation possible. By Your grace, help me to ponder the rights and wrongs I encounter. Guide me in Your goodness to see through the wickedness of this age and to make choices that are good and right. Lead me, O Lord, to humbly walk with You. Teach me and help me to have a willing spirit to learn all things necessary. Amen.
