“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom…..(Proverbs 9:10 NIV)

God has a panoramic view of our lives – past, present, and future – and knows what the future holds for us. All of us are trying to make the right choices and make godly decisions; conclusions that please God and will be consistent with His will for our lives. We believe that God has great plans for us if we stay in His will.

We need His wisdom to do that.

I pray that God gives us the Wisdom of Solomon so we can be wise as serpents and humble as doves in order to make wise, knowledgeable, and discerning decisions in every area of our lives.

We desire good judgment to make right and godly choices about our jobs, our families, our relationships, our finances, our health, and our churches. We need spiritual understanding to make decisions regarding our future.

Don’t take anything for granted.

Don’t assume you will be alive tomorrow or next year. It’s all in Jehovah’s hands and He has already numbered our days. That does not mean we stop pursuing our dreams or planning for the future – Elohim promised us three score and ten years in the Psalms. But, Jehovah also allowed our patriarchs to live to be 120 years so we don’t know what number God has put on our record. Then again, we don’t want to live foolishly and waste the days He is allowing us to live on this earth.

We need God’s guidance.

We choose Jehovah’s direction.

We desire Elohim’s wisdom.

We want to gain a heart of wisdom as we live our ‘numbered’ days.

Teach us to number our days; that we may gain a heart of wisdom.”  Psalm 90:12 (NIV)
