Daily Verse: “Whoever trusts in his own mind is a fool, but he who walks in wisdom will be delivered.” Prov. 28:26
Security doesn’t come from a life of self-sufficiency; it comes from wisdom. Trusting in your limited perspective looks much different than following the wisdom of the Bible and wise counsel.

Marriage creates an intimacy that gives a unique perspective because we know each other so well and continue to learn more daily.
Applying Biblical wisdom to our lives by following God’s commands requires dependence on Him. We must submit our will to Jesus to reap the rewards. My self-will doesn’t want to forgive, pray for my enemies, or put others before myself, but God commands it. Each day, I must choose dependence on the Lord or myself. I’ve learned life goes much better when I choose the Creator.
Seek wisdom through the scriptures. Develop relationships with wise people who will help you make better decisions. Find deliverance by walking in wisdom.
Lord, forgive us for leaning on our understanding. Please help us submit to You, follow Your commandments, and live a life of wisdom. Let us become more like Jesus with each day that passes. IJNIP. Amen
