“But where can wisdom be found? And where is the place of understanding?
Where then does wisdom come from? And where is this place of understanding?
And to mankind He said, ‘Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; And to turn away from evil is understanding.’ ” Job 28:12, 20, 28 NASB
Sounds so simple but such a struggle. Turning our eyes upon Jesus with reverence (fear) is wisdom. The wise will turn to Jesus and seek Him. With eyes upon Jesus we have no desire for evil. The true understanding of who Jesus is will turn the heart away from evil.
🌹Seek and cultivate a relationship with Jesus. Minute by minute.
be filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so that you will walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please Him in all respects, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; Colossians 1:9b-10
We cannot neglect the reading of the Word of God and expect to know or do God’s will. Without prayer we cannot be freed from the encumbrance of sin that entangles us. (Hebrews 12:1) Fixing our eyes on Jesus as we read His Word and pray, we are filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding.
Want to know how to walk through life with fulfillment — bearing fruit in all good work — and increase in the knowledge of God? Read the Word and pray so that you walk in a manner worthy of the Lord. You won’t regret it and you will please God in all respects.
Don’t wait. Starting today make it a priority in your life to seek God through His Word, Jesus, and pray for understanding, spiritual wisdom and the knowledge of your Creator.
Your hands made me and fashioned me; Give me understanding, that I may learn Your commandments. — Psalm 119:73
The best friend ever gives understanding to learn His commandments. Yesterday we read, “You are My friends if you do what I command you.” Isn’t it great that He not only desires us to keep His commandments but He gives us understanding of them so we can obey them. Our friend is so giving to us just for the asking. By prayer we spend quality time with our Friend deepening our relationship with Him and we receive His understanding when we ask.
What a great Friend we have in Jesus. Relying on His understanding is so much better than our relying on our own understanding. We are limited, He is unlimited. We are finite, He is infinite. Let us lean on His understanding.
Continually seeking Him,
Trust in the Lord with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. Proverbs 3:5
