I read from Proverbs 2 this morning. How often I ask God for wisdom in the midst of life's trials. He gives instructions right here on how to find it! My NIV Study Bible
explains it like this...
First: We must trust and honor God.
Second: We must realize that the Bible reveals God's wisdom to us.
Third: We must make a lifelong series of right choices and avoid moral pitfalls.
Fourth: When we make sinful or mistaken choices, we must learn from our errors
We can pray for all aspects of wisdom AND take the steps to develop them in our lives.
May God bless us with wisdom as we seek him and accept the gift of his word that reveals it. That makes me excited to read his word!
If you would like more of God's wisdom, take a "Mom moment" and read Proverbs 2.
