These are two elements that will get us through anything in life. Wisdom from the Lord and understanding of His Word can help to lead us on the path to joy. To gain these we must spend time reading the Word, praying and sitting quietly with Jesus. For these activities are the true sources of wisdom and how we can gain understanding. The world is filled with darkness and the evil of sin and they will do everything to keep you from spending time with God. Don’t underestimate the power of sin, it is deceptive and persistent and will always be looking for ways to distract you. Seek wisdom from the Lord and read the Scriptures for understanding each day. Ask God to provide you the courage and strength to do so. He loves you and He is watching over you. May God’s peace be with you.
“Blessed are those who find wisdom, those who gain understanding, for she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold.”
