More precious than rubies
Proverbs 8:10-11 – Choose my instruction instead of silver, knowledge rather than choice gold, for wisdom is more precious than rubies, and nothing you desire can compare with her.
God never promises an easy life. The Bible warns us plenty of times about troubles coming our way, due to living in a fallen, imperfect world with imperfect people. But God does give us access to wisdom through the Holy Spirit.
In Proverbs, it says that when you seek wisdom, you will find it. It’s more precious than any earthly treasure. Isn’t that in itself amazing?
Wisdom is what sent me on this journey with my daily devotionals. I wanted more of God’s wisdom. I wanted to know how to best deal with the situations that life throws at me. I wanted to be able to see through the eyes of Jesus, who is wise and all-knowing. I wanted to be able to discern, and have knowledge about the Bible and the Truth that God promises us.
I wanted to know the scripture like the back of my hand, and wisdom to carry with me on my day-to-day.
I’m definitely not there yet, but there have been so many moments when I have felt God’s wisdom in me. For example, when I was talking to someone who had questions, and I was able to speak wisdom into their life. It wasn’t my wisdom, but God’s. And I felt the power of it.
Pray for wisdom daily. Seek wisdom in His Word. Fill your heart and your mind with God’s Truth, and watch how it fills your every day life. He says when you seek, you will find. That’s a promise – so start seeking.
