Wisdom will lead you to a life of joy and peace. – (Proverbs 3:17, ERV)
She (wisdom) will guide you down delightful paths; all her ways are satisfying. – (Proverbs 3:17, NLT)
The ways of wisdom are sweet, always drawing you into the place of wholeness. – (Proverbs 3:17, TPT)
The wisdom that we gain from God will guide us to the good He has in store for us. If we seek the Lord and His will, He leads us and imparts to us His wisdom so that we are able to walk in His ways. Though the path He plans is not always the easiest road, there is perpetual purpose as we run the race that He lays out before us. The Lord grants the wisdom needed to navigate well and experience His joy and peace along the journey. May we ever seek the Lord and His wisdom as we go, as He leads us to His perfect place of wholeness in Him.
In God, there’s wisdom,
That will lead the way;
In joy and in peace,
For all of our days.
No matter the road,
That we’re called to trod;
The way ends in good,
If we choose seek God.
The Lord is our Source,
He’ll guide us in peace;
To wholeness in Him,
As grace is released.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that when we seek You for wisdom to know which way to go, You provide us with joy and peace for the journey. Thank You that all of Your ways are good, no matter how we perceive the path that lies before us. Thank You that where You lead, always ends in wholeness in You. Forgive us for our fearfulness or mistrust in the process based on what we see. Teach us to trust You more, as Your ways are higher than ours, and You work even when we cannot see change taking place. Show us how to love those around us in ways that impart wisdom and promote joy and peace. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we seek You for wisdom and trust You to lead us for all of our days. Amen.
