Proverbs 2:6 For the LORD gives wisdom, and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.
Dear Lord, “Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God!” (Rom. 11:33) Your wisdom far surpasses mine or any human for that matter. So why do I listen to my reason instead of yours? Why does my sinful pride say, “I’m the exception to the rule? This time, Lord, you need to listen to me. This time I know better.” How foolish! How ignorant! Forgive me. Lead me always to seek your wisdom. And as I face decisions and dilemmas, give me clear direction so that I heed your will. When I do head in the wrong direction, quickly change my course to get me on the right track. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
