If you listen to Him, you will understand what is just and fair and how to do what is right. – (Proverbs 2:9, ERV)

With wisdom you will be able to choose the right road, seek justice, and decide what is good and fair. – (Proverbs 2:9, VOICE)

 

When we seek the Lord and listen for His voice, He shows us what is good and right in His sight. God grants wisdom to those who ask, and makes plain His path that is just and leads to joy as we journey through life with Him. We need to worry less about the weight of our options, and more about what matters to God. As we heed His instruction, the right road is made plain before us. God is faithful to answer when we ask Him what is just and fair and how to do His will. May we ever seek the Lord and listen for His voice, so that we will know and understand what is right in His sight.

 

True understanding,The Direction of Discipline

Is gained through the Lord;

As we seek, we find,

Wisdom He’ll afford.

God shows us what’s just,

The road to do right;

If we choose listen,

Confusion takes flight.

Understanding comes,

As we hear His voice;

True wisdom granted,

To make the right choice.

 

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that when we listen to You, You grant us understanding of what is just and fair and how to do what is right. Forgive us for the times we neglect to listen, or choose to ignore the instructions that we have heard, to do what we think is best. Teach us to trust You and Your ways, as You know the outcome before we ever begin. Show us how to love those around us in a way that is just and fair, and that models doing right. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we listen to You and follow the road that You make plain to do what is right. Amen.
