The Way to Wisdom

Accepting His word,

store up His commands;

turn ear to wisdom,

so heart understands.

Call out for insight,

cry out so He’ll show;

search for the treasure,

and at last, we’ll know.

To understand fear,

and knowledge of God;

we must be seekers,

find His path to trod.

The Lord grants wisdom,

from Him comes the grace;

a depth of knowledge,

as we seek His face.

Victory in store,

for all the upright,

He will be our shield,

our battles He’ll fight.

He will guard the course,

of His faithful ones;

protected the way,

as we serve the Son.

What’s right, just and fair,

good path we shall know;

wisdom to our hearts,

pleasant to our soul.

(Responding to Proverbs 2:1-10)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that true wisdom comes from You.  Thank You that it is available to all who earnestly seek You.  Forgive us for wanting wisdom without the work, and teach us to search and seek, so that we may understand what it truly means to both fear You and know You.  Thank You that as we ask, You are so faithful to answer.  May we sincerely seek and find, so that we walk in Your wisdom – extending Your love and grace to all whom we encounter.  Let Your loving kindness lead many unto You.  Amen.
