Today’s Key Scripture 

“Let your heart retain my words; keep my commands, and live. Get wisdom! Get understanding! Do not forget, nor turn away from the words of my mouth. Do not forsake her, and she will preserve you; love her, and she will keep you. Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding.”

— Proverbs 4:4-7

God seeks to lead through His voice, for He knows that wisdom from Him is the best road to an abundant life.

A road or path is a common illustration throughout the Bible. Wisdom allows you to walk uprightly, so that you will not stumble on the paths of life. Wisdom means hearing and doing God’s Word as you walk out your faith. That is why the fear of the Lord is the beginning of all true wisdom.

Here are four ways to get wisdom:

  • True wisdom comes from God (Proverbs 2:6).
  • Ask God for wisdom (James 1:5).
  • Desire wisdom with all of your heart (Proverbs 2:3-5).
  • Study and learn God’s Word (Psalm 19:7). The more you devote yourself to God’s Holy Word, the more you open yourself up to the greatest wisdom in the universe.

Do you want to hear God’s voice? True wisdom begins when you learn to “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.” (Proverbs 3:5-6).

Seek God’s wisdom every day as you study, pray, and stay in communion with Him!
