“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Proverbs 19:20-21

TODAY’S WORD…

.

If you listen to advice and are willing to learn,

one day you will be wise.

.

People may plan all kinds of things,

but the Lord’s will is going to be done.

REFLECTION…

.

If you listen to advice and are willing to learn,

one day you will be wise.

So, how wise are you today?

Are you wise enough to still gladly listen to advice?

Are you wise enough to still want to learn?

.

Be humble enough, therefore,

to listen attentively to Jesus’ counsel,

to embrace His loving instruction,

and to bend to His will.

For He is the Wisdom of God,

and His teachings will give you the wisdom needed

as you walk along the narrow path of salvation.

.

It is such wisdom, derived from Christ,

that helps us accept the fact that

in spite of our worldly plans,

ultimately, the Lord’s will is going to be done.

.

Such wisdom comes through reading His word;

through looking to Him,

through believing in Him,

through leaning and living upon him;

through committing the affairs of our souls to Him.

.

Ultimately, it is such wisdom

that shifts our focus from our worldly state to that of our soul,

and our concern from being self-centred to becoming soul-centred.

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Increase my faith and trust in You, O Lord,

that I will always bend to Your will.
