Scripture tells us that seeking wisdom and discretion brings life and is â€œan ornament of grace.â€ No matter what decisions you may be facing today, God wants to equip you and empower you to make the right choices. How do we seek wisdom and discretion? By making the Word of God a priority. The answer to every situation we face is addressed in Godâ€™s Word, either directly or by principle. When Godâ€™s Word is the final authority in your life, His grace will empower you to live victoriously.
Proverbs 3:23 – 26 goes on to say, â€œthen you will go on your way in safety, and your foot will not stumble. When you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet. Have no fear of sudden disaster or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked, for the Lord will be at your side and will keep your foot from being snared.â€ Hallelujah!
Today, I encourage you to put Godâ€™s Word first. Ask the Holy Spirit to guide you as you study. Follow His commands and open the way for His grace to cover you. Let His grace empower you to dwell in safety and rest securely all the days of your life!
â€œDo not let wisdom and understanding out of your sight, preserve sound judgment and discretion; they will be life for you, an ornament to grace your neck.â€ (Proverbs 3:21â€“22, NIV)
Yahweh, thank You for Your Word which is life and health to me. Father, I submit myself to You knowing that You have good things in store for my future. God, thank You for the promises in Your Word. I will hide Your Word in my heart so that I can receive Your grace and walk in Your ways, in Christâ€™ name! Amen.
