1 070513 Wisdom

Good morning everyone and praise the Lord for His mercy and grace. Only through His grace are we able to endure all of the pitfalls this world presents us with. Give Him a mighty praise right now.

Today’s Prayer

Father, I come before you on behalf of my brothers and sisters in Christ to make the following declarations. You know, some day’s things just don’t flow smoothly. Computers crash, unexpected expenses pop up, people get sick, and on and on I could go. But you know the things that we face and you know the things that every one participating in this devotional time faces. I pray that you will give us peace and calmness in the midst of rough days. Please help us keep our perspective and remember our priorities. Getting frustrated and upset just doesn’t help matters. I pray for wisdom for the day, help from above, and solutions to the challenges that come. Thank you, God, for caring about even the simplest things as well as the catastrophic events. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.


New Living Translation
Proverbs 9:1-12

“Wisdom has built her house; she has carved its seven columns. She has prepared a great banquet, mixed the wines, and set the table. She has sent her servants to invite everyone to come. She calls out from the heights overlooking the city. “Come in with me,” she urges the simple. To those who lack good judgment, she says, “Come, eat my food, and drink the wine I have mixed. Leave your simple ways behind, and begin to live; learn to use good judgment.” Anyone who rebukes a mocker will get an insult in return.
Anyone who corrects the wicked will get hurt. So don’t bother correcting mockers; they will only hate you. But correct the wise, and they will love you. Instruct the wise, and they will be even wiser. Teach the righteous, and they will learn even more. Fear of the Lord is the foundation of wisdom. Knowledge of the Holy One results in good judgment. Wisdom will multiply your days and add years to your life. If you become wise, you will be the one to benefit. If you scorn wisdom, you will be the one to suffer.”


The soul that waits upon the Lord is the soul that is entirely surrendered to Him, and that trusts Him perfectly. Therefore we might name our wings the wings of Surrender and of Trust. If we will only surrender ourselves utterly to the Lord, and will trust Him perfectly, we shall find our souls “mounting up with wings as eagles” to the “heavenly places” in Christ Jesus, where earthly annoyances or sorrows have no power to disturb us.
