The Lord Giveth

Proverbs 2:6

For the LORD gives wisdom, and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.

This is pretty much the mission statement of Proverbs isn’t it?

Such a simple message yet we often overlook it.  Too often we rely on common sense that is far too often just that, …common.  Why trust your own heart when you know your heart is sinful and flawed?  Why not trust the Truth of the Bible that is infallible?

I’m not saying check your heart and head at the door.  I don’t even understand the words “blind faith” because my Faith is an exercise in study and questioning every command Scripture gives.  What I mean is we shouldn’t just assume that we’ll naturally know the best course of action just because we have a college degree or because other people agree with us.  Test things against scripture.

Or even better, be in the Word constantly and when you come to a point where you need to make a judgement call or decision, you’ll have the guidance of the Lord at the front of your mind.
