Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today – June 13, 2015
I guide you in the way of wisdom and lead you along straight paths. Proverbs 4:11
God places wise guides in our lives to lead us in the way of wisdom. These are men and women with a touch of gray or a hoary head full of fine silver and discernment. Their counsel is the cream that rises to the top from all the advice we receive. We value their opinions as a righteous road map from our heavenly Father. Perhaps you meet an hour or two weekly with these sages from your Savior so you can better see the wise way to walk.
Life is full of circumstances that make your path crooked, but you can stay focused on the way of wisdom through wise guides and aggressive prayer. Ask prayer from fellow wisdom hunters for your heart to traffic on the path of purity. The righteous prayers of wisdom reveal the way with heaven’s headlights; so request prayer often.
“This is what the Lord says: ‘Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls. But you said, “We will not walk in it”’” (Jeremiah 6:16).
Solicit the prayers of wise saints who seek the Lord daily in determined intercession. Ask them to pray for your heart, mind, and body to be kept clean in Christ Jesus. Entrust wise prayer warriors with specific financial and family issues that need a touch from heaven. It is not only okay but also necessary for a prayer team to surround you as ambassadors to almighty God on your behalf.
They convoy with you and Christ to make the crooked ways straight. Wise guides pray that your trust is in Christ, the conductor of your life and work. So, sooner than later, prayerfully invite wise guides, passionate about prayer, who will go to God on your behalf. Then as you debrief together on what He is doing, your intimacy with the Lord and each other will grow, and your understanding of the wisest way to go will be marked more clearly.
“Make me know Thy ways, O Lord; Teach me Thy paths. Lead me in Thy truth and teach me, For Thou art the God of my salvation; For Thee I wait all the day” (Psalm 25:4–5 nasb).
Prayer: Whom can I ask to be a wise guide in my life? Who will pray for me to walk in wisdom and on the path of Christ?
