Memory Monday – Week 97
Proverbs 2:6 says, “For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding”. I love the Passion Translation of this verse which says, “Wisdom is a gift from a generous God, and every word he speaks is full of revelation and becomes a living fountain of understanding within you.”
Wisdom is never going to be found unless we seek the Lord. While it’s wise to seek other believers and Godly counsel, we must put wisdom from the Lord above all. God’s word is always His will. Many times people say they don’t understand what God’s will is for them, but the reason might be because they don’t know His word. The best way to seek Him and know His will isn’t just to ask Him, but to spend time with Him and in His word.
Just as reflected in the passion translation wisdom is a gift from the Lord. He desires to guide us along the way and while He might not always reveal the big picture to us, He isn’t going to leave us in the dark. He will direct us when we ask for guidance.
The second part of the verse says that every word He speaks is full of truth and as said earlier the more we know and believe His word the more revelations we will receive. Every word He speaks gives us life. His word is a daily source of manna for us, which fills up spiritually. It’s full of knowledge and intended to help us better understand His will and purpose for us.
Wisdom, revelations, and understanding all come from God’s word. Instead of turning to the advice of a therapist, doctor, counselor, friend first – seek God’s word. Allow the Holy Spirit to speak new and fresh revelations of wisdom to you.
