If you’re anything like me, you feel like slapping yourself sometimes for saying something stupid, or failing to do something you should have. What is needed is some wisdom. I’m so grateful that God gives wisdom to those who ask.
He stores up wisdom for the upright. (Prv. 2:7) Whenever something is “stored”, it’s usually in volume. This makes me think of a huge grain silo, filled with wisdom. God has saved up a vast supply to give to those who ask for it. You can get more than you can carry–more than you can take in. There is a lot!
When wisdom enters your heart, and knowledge is pleasant to your soul, discretion will preserve you, to deliver you from the way of evil. (Prv 2:10-12) That is an amazing statement. You can be safe from disastrous decisions, from choices that would cause serious harm.
You have to want it. You have to want God to help you in every area of your life. You have to be thankful that He can speak to your soul and guide you through life. Ask Him for wisdom, every day. .Ask Him to help you, and discretion will preserve you and keep you safe. Always ask for more.
