Give me understanding, that I may keep Your law; yes, I will observe it with my whole heart. Psalm 119:34
Some music to listen to…as you read…He’s Just That Kind of God by Wanda Davis and The St. John’s Baptis Choir
Behold, You desire truth in the inner being; make me therefore to know wisdom in my inmost heart. Psalm 51:6
For the Lord gives skillful and godly Wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding. Proverbs 2:6
This is so simple. I am on a budget and I need God’s wisdom on all of my expenditures. Let’s go back a little…
my neighbor’s had a gorgeous set of wicker chairs for their porch. I told them how much I liked them. That was two years ago. I thought to myself that if I ever get a moment of free time…I’m going to look for some chairs like that. I was going to need some wisdom on this…so I gave it to God. I knew I’d get some…but I forgot about it.
I did…look at Garage Sales which is one of my favorite pastimes.
Well, about a month ago I turned the corner in my car and lo and behold… my neighbors were moving and decided not to take the chairs with them and put them on the curb. I picked them up and decided to get cushions.
Before I even had time to go in a store some people who live about a mile from here…put some beautiful cushions at the curb. All they needed was a good scrub! I scooped them up!
This happens all of the time. It’s something new…but I can get used to it. The fact that these “events” keep happening to me…is not because of any “smartness” or “understanding” or “favor” that I have other than from God…and I am thankful
But, to answer the question: “Why Wisdom?”
When I have a problem…I do not need a solution. I need the BEST SOLUTION! God’s way is always a better way than man’s way. He says so and has shown me.
For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts. (Isaiah 55:8-9)
Time and time again…God has proven Himself! I want to operate with His wisdom; never my own!
