Psalm 111:10


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.
