Our Wisdom from on High

Oh, come, our Wisdom from on high,
Who ordered all things mightily;
To us the path of knowledge show,
and teach us in her ways to go.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to you, O Israel!

How often do I forget that I don’t have to know everything myself?

God is my wisdom!

Do I see His face in the decisions that are ahead of me? Do I remember that He who created the Earth and everything in it can see the way through my struggles? Can I rely on Him for provision and strength?

God always has the bigger picture in mind and He is working to prepare my heart and mind for what is to come while providing for all I need today. He is the one who knows it all — from the past to the future and intricately weaves it all together. I pray that I always seek His path of knowledge and not what the world deems “wise”.

Come, Lord Jesus!

PrayerPoints is typically a Lenten project and a chronicle of God working on my heart and mind. It is always a process. God is always teaching me! I am American born with Hungarian blood. I make plenty of mistakes but I am forgiven. Each day is an adventure.

  2. I am in a different situation and since everyone is, I know I am not unique. Phew! At least I am in good company! I can be assumed to be an easy going, laid back person but underneath I have had experiences that most people don’t even know exist. Cross the line where I have more education and experience I will carefully explain what I know, tying to keep a sense of humor helps. I know God directs all our steps if we ask Him to, so I ask.. Am I perfect? a resounding NO !! I keep reminding myself of an old Country /Western song “It’s Hard to Humble” that reminds the listener how obnoxious it is to assume you are perfect. I have used this line repeatedly, “Just ask me! I am an expert on everything. Get good information on what you want to know, check the resources for accuracy and then think about what you have learned and then decide! See I know everything!” Usually that gets a laugh and then the person realizes that bit of wisdom(hard learned) works. Do I know it all? How can I ? I only know what is available to me, not everything around me. I remember God is in control and nothing that happens surprises Him. Blessings to all! Kiss the babies for me!
