Got wisdom? Acknowledge the source…

Mind of Christ  |  October 19

… ‘Age should speak, and multitude of years should teach wisdom.’
But there is a spirit in man, and the breath of the Almighty gives him understanding.
Great men are not always wise, nor do the aged always understand justice.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.

Job 32:7-9, Proverbs 3:5-6

Father, we see here that age should teach wisdom but it is not always so. Neither great men nor aged men are always wise, but men whose spirit has been breathed upon by Your Spirit, are given understanding, Your understanding.

We are to trust in You, Lord, with all of our heart, knowing that Your view of our circumstances is from an eternal perspective. You see the end, we do not. Help us this day  not to lean on our own understanding or on our own wisdom. Teach us, moment by moment, to implement Your Holy plan for our lives.

We pray that each of us acknowledge You before men, knowing that direction is promised to those who do so. In the Holy name of Jesus we pray, amen.
