It’s day 3, day 3! How are you ladies feeling about proverbs so far? (pssst – go here if you’re lost and want to know what we’re currently working on)
I’ve got to tell you, I’m loving it. It’s free and open and there is lots to learn and glean from, but truly loving it.
Tagging on to what Kacia and Raechel shared in the last two days, I think it’s most important that we get with HIM, get our eyes on HIM, and see what it is He has to share with us. So if you haven’t read already – here is my suggestion.
Open your YouVersion app or your Bible or your journal.
Ask Him to be near – in Psalm 38:21, David cries out, “O my God, be not far from me!”
I love the act of calling on God – because it puts us in the needy position of remembering we need His presence, His power, and His sweet grace for us to even read and comprehend His words. To get anything from Proverbs or any other book of the Bible, we need Him near. And by grace, through faith in the blood of Jesus, we can have Him.
Father, will you be near to us – your girls?
You have called us and redeemed us and set us apart.
We’ve just strayed and sinned and been needy.
Help us to read today with ears that our tuned by Your Holy Spirit.
Replace the hearts of stone and give us hearts of flesh.
Give us wisdom, Father.
For your glory.
Wisdom. Wisdom. Wisdom.
We’ve heard a good deal about it so far and we’ve got more ahead.
I think there is a tendency to want to get tired of wisdom.
But ya’ll, we need so much of it.
Over and over again each day!
When I read Proverbs 3:17-18, I felt like I was reading the opposite description of what was in my heart most days:
Her ways are ways of pleasantness,
and all her paths are peace.
She is a tree of life to those who lay hold of her;
those who hold her fast are called blessed.
That “she” is Wisdom.
And I – in my lack of wisdom and pleasantness and peace, am craving her.
And I’m only craving her because I’m craving HIM.
I’m thankful for a Father who gives me what I need when I crave it.
I’m thankful for a Father who gives me instruction on how to live.
I’m thankful for women like to you to pursue Him with me.
Now let’s hear from you.
Do you feel like wisdom is a cornerstone in your life or a missing piece?
How are you seeking it? How are you seeking Him?
