Psalm 111:10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding. To him belongs eternal praise.
O Lord, help me see that my own human wisdom is not only deceiving, but damning. My own human wisdom thinks I know what’s best, when only you know what is best for me. My own human wisdom thinks I need to be in control when you alone are in control. My own human wisdom denies your love and Lordship over me. This is how I get myself in trouble. But in you, I find true wisdom. In you I find forgiveness for no reason at all. In you I find love that goes beyond human understanding. In you I find unsurpassed wisdom that always does what is best for me. So I pray, give me the wisdom that respects, loves, and trusts in you above all things. Amen.
