Listen to advice and accept discipline, and at the end you will be counted among the wise. Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lords purpose that prevails.
Many of us rush to give advice and make ambitious plans.
The Scripture reminds us that wisdom comes from submitting to instruction for a significant period of time and then, only at the end of long listening does it come.
While I am not perfect every time, I realize I always do better when I let my plan develop a bit more in the light of the Lord before I proceed with them. I am comforted to know that God will give that wisdom if we seek it and not doubt.
But while we pray for wisdom, let's pray also for patience to listen to the Lord's truth in Scripture so we may recognize wisdom when it comes!
Almighty God, teach me your ways and help me discern your paths for my life. Lead me in your wisdom and I will not only seek to know it, but also seek to live it by the power supplied by your Holy Spirit. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
