Memory Monday – Week 97

Proverbs 2:6 says, “For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding”. I love the Passion Translation of this verse which says, “Wisdom is a gift from a generous God, and every word he speaks is full of revelation and becomes a living fountain of understanding within you.”

Wisdom is never going to be found unless we seek the Lord. While it’s wise to seek other believers and Godly counsel, we must put wisdom from the Lord above all. God’s word is always His will. Many times people say they don’t understand what God’s will is for them, but the reason might be because they don’t know His word. The best way to seek Him and know His will isn’t just to ask Him, but to spend time with Him and in His word. 

Just as reflected in the passion translation wisdom is a gift from the Lord. He desires to guide us along the way and while He might not always reveal the big picture to us, He isn’t going to leave us in the dark. He will direct us when we ask for guidance.

The second part of the verse says that every word He speaks is full of truth and as said earlier the more we know and believe His word the more revelations we will receive. Every word He speaks gives us life. His word is a daily source of manna for us, which fills up spiritually. It’s full of knowledge and intended to help us better understand His will and purpose for us.

Wisdom, revelations, and understanding all come from God’s word. Instead of turning to the advice of a therapist, doctor, counselor, friend first – seek God’s word. Allow the Holy Spirit to speak new and fresh revelations of wisdom to you.

    I am thankful for your post, I think we treat God’s word too casually. He will sustain us through the word. Blessings.

    I have never heard of the Passion translation and after reading that verse I definitely want to look it up! I love more “modern” translations—it just makes the word even more so poetic to me somehow.

    So true, Caroline. Church and godly friends are great, but if you don’t read God’s Word, you don’t give Him a chance to speak to you…and you don’t really know what it says. You just know what others say about it. We need to put on the armor of Truth. Love this.

    Yes this is so true we must seek God’s word for wisdom and understand before all others. Thanks for the reminder!

    So thankful that if we just ask God for Wisdom, He is faithful to give it!

    You are so right, Godly people, sermons, and books are wonderful, but we cannot neglect the word of God.

    Allowing God’s word to speak to us is so important yet something I often neglect. Thanks for reminding me to be still and listen.

    My husband has a new job opportunity, and although we’re excited, we’re also nervous. He’s been at his job for 20 years. We needed this. Thank you

    every time I read the Word, I pray for His wisdom – and that His Holy Spirit would speak to me as I read 😀

    I love that each time I read the Bible, I see something different. That’s why it’s important to stay in the Word! Thanks for sharing your verses 🙂

    such a great verse and one of those i need to tack to the fridge as a reminder.

    That verse is so true. I am learning that while I am reading the Old Testament, God has so much wisdom and He knows just what to say or teach you in your time of need 🙂

    It was SO refreshing to read this this week. Thank you! We often seek so many things in our prayers, instead of asking for wisdom.

    What a wonderful scripture to share Caroline! Love this.

    I’m participating in the Hello Mornings Bible study/challenge and we had to read Peter 1: 1-8 today. As I read your post, I was reminded of the scripture that stood out to me today:

    “If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.” Peter 1: 5

    Our God is so great. If we ask Hom for wisdom He will give it to us.

    Thanks for sharing.
