Her ways are pleasant, and all her paths, peaceful. – (Proverbs 3:17, HCSB)
Wisdom will lead you to a life of joy and peace. – (Proverbs 3:17, ERV)
She will guide you down delightful paths; all her ways are satisfying. – (Proverbs 3:17, NLT)
Wisdom from God is what leads us to joy and peace. His wisdom shows us the ways we are meant to go, and guides us throughout all of our days. When we listen to His leading, we know joy and peace in Him, no matter what lies ahead. In this season of seemingly unending curves and treacherous hills, knowing His nearness and listening to His leading are the things that make our paths plain and our vision eternal. As we learn to look through the Lord’s lens of love, we discover pleasant paths and true peace are found as we faithfully follow our Heavenly Father. May we ever seek the Lord to grow in wisdom, so that we discover His ways that lead us to a life full of His joy and peace.
Wisdom is waiting,
As we seek the Lord;
His ways are pleasant,
As grace, He affords.
He brings us His joy,
And provides His peace;
His wisdom, guides us,
And supplies our needs.
So, keep seeking God,
And wisdom He gives;
He’ll show us the ways,
That we’re meant to live.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that Your wisdom leads us to pleasant paths and fills our lives with joy. Thank You that the wisdom in knowing You is what grants us hope and peace. Forgive us for taking our eyes off of You, or for attempting to navigate in our own knowledge. Teach us to seek You in all things, for You are faithful to lead us in the ways that we are meant to go. Fill us with Your wisdom that makes plain the paths that we are meant to take. Show us how to love those around us as You do, so that peace and joy are passed along to all those we encounter. May many come into a lasting relationship with You. Be glorified O God, as we pursue Your wisdom to lead us and provide us with Your peace and joy forever. Amen.
