Seek Wisdom

Blog 4-2-11
Dear Friends,
Lately I have been praying for wisdom and insight in my life. It seems there is always so much going on and too many decisions to make that we are bound to make a wrong turn unless we act carefully and have the wisdom of God. As we face the daily decisions of our lives we need God’s wisdom but we need to desire it and ask Him for it. Today, I want to encourage you to seek God’s wisdom with all your heart and He will give it to you by sharing this devotional from my book Devotions for Working Women.

Pursue Wisdom with All Your Heart

Proverbs 1:23 (NLT)
Come here and listen to me! I’ll pour out the spirit of wisdom upon you and make you wise.

In Proverbs 1:20, Wisdom cries out on the streets looking for people and can’t find anyone who is willing to listen and become wise. God wants to pour out His Spirit of wisdom upon us but we have to desire it. We have to search for it and appreciate it like the most valuable treasure we could ever find or have. Wisdom is a treasure because it is by wisdom we understand what it means to fear the Lord, and we gain knowledge of God (Proverbs 2:5 NLT).

The Bible exhorts you to “Tune your ears to wisdom, and concentrate on understanding. Cry out for insight and understanding. Search for them as you would for lost money or hidden treasure” (Proverbs 2:2-4 NLT). Therefore, make an effort like never before to pursue wisdom. Seek it more than your career, job, or business.
