Daily Verse: “My son, if you receive my words and treasure up my commandments with you… then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God.” Proverbs 2:1,5

Attaining God’s wisdom requires discipline and an ongoing pursuit of the Lord.  When we receive God’s teaching, we may use it immediately, but often we store it for future use.

With patience, we must trust we will use everything we learn at the appropriate time.  God wastes nothing.

As a tennis coach, I began playing the game during high school.  Stopping while in college, I started playing again in my 30s for exercise.  Not until my late 40s did I begin coaching after decades of playing and learning.

God does the same with us.  We study and learn His word, attaining wisdom, and in the proper time, we will use everything the Lord’s taught us.

But we must stay disciplined, continue learning, and store God’s wisdom.  Eventually, we will use what we know to build God’s kingdom and complete our divine task.

Lord, thank You for giving us Your Wisdom.  Forgive us for not seeking You more diligently.  Please help us learn the lessons you have for us today, storing them for future use.  Let us live in Your blessing and favor as we pursue You.  IJNIP.  Amen
