Daily Verse: “Because I have called and you refused to listen, have stretched out my hand and no one has heeded,” Proverbs 1:24

When we ignore the wisdom in God’s word, we will cause ourselves a heap of trouble.  After offering burnt offerings to the Lord, God’s responded to Solomon, asking the new king what he wanted.  Solomon answered:

“Give me wisdom and knowledge, that I may lead this people, 2 Chronicles 1:10

Solomon’s response pleased God because he didn’t ask for selfish things but wisdom.  A wise man, Solomon knew he didn’t have all the answers to life’s dilemmas, but God did.  Tapping into divine strength helped Solomon rule Israel well.

We have the same opportunity as Solomon.  Each day, we can submit our lives to God, asking for His wisdom and discernment to lead us.  With the Lord, we find life to the fullest.  Ignoring God’s teachings leads us to places we don’t want to go.

Don’t ignore God’s warnings; follow Him and seek His wisdom.

Lord, forgive us for ignoring You.  Give us eyes to see and ears to hear Your work in our lives.  As we seek Your wisdom, let it reign in our life.  With You, all things become possible.  IJNIP.  Amen
