Attached to the Right Source of Wisdom (Morning)
Psalms 111:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; A good understanding have all those who do His commandments. His praise endures forever.
Do you know Aladdin? An animated movie created by Disney about a street urchin who found a magic lamp. Aladdin has three wishes and he used them wisely. Now then, if you find a magic lamp and be granted one wish, what do you want? King Solomon was given the same situation before. Instead, he didn’t receive a magical lamp, God Himself appeared in his dream. God said He will grant Solomon’s wish, anything. Solomon could ask for wealth without limit, longevity, status higher than the emperor, or unlimited worldly pleasure. But he chose wisely: wisdom and understanding for all things under the sky.
Through wisdom, Solomon could decide important matters. One famous story is about two women and a baby. He could reach a decision no mortal men could ever think before or after. Wisdom enables him to separate right from wrong. By choosing wisdom, he accumulated wealth beyond measure, many kings came to him and asked for his counsel and his name, his legacy was immortalized.
In this life, we cannot achieve everything with our might and power. We all have our limitations. But when we ask for divine wisdom and God gives it to us we could see things from another perspective and take another route that will lead us to success. When we have divine wisdom, our understanding will be renewed, and could think our next step thoroughly. Because He is the true source of wisdom rely upon Him to decide matter beyond your current understanding and see how significant your growth is and how great He fulfilled His end of the covenant.
When we rely on Him as our true SOURCE OF WISDOM, He will make us bear fruit more.
1. Have you relied upon Him as your source of wisdom?
2. When you attach yourself to God, you’ll bear more fruit, why? Can you explain?
3. What are your concrete commitments to rely upon Him more?
“O good Father, we want to rely upon You more than before. We know only within You we will find glory and victory. You are the true source of wisdom that will enable us to bear more fruit. In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.”
