Oh Lord, I pray that every true believer in You will also obtain Your wisdom and understanding. That we will be able to know the differences between the wisdom of this world and Your wisdom from on high. Many times what is right and what is wrong is blurred and hard to distinguish. However, our minds are opened and made clear when You are leading us by the hand, not the opposite. Lord, it is Your love and desires that I want in my life at all times. I have experienced what the world offers and it is always temporary with guilt associated with it. Temptations seem so good on the outside, especially when it brings out the lusts of the flesh, but all this is evil on the inside. Every time we give ourselves over to our lusts there is always regret, especially for people that believe in You. Lord, I know that this life is hard, especially when our flesh desires things that our spirit does not. This war inside of us needs to be tamed and that is when Your armor and the Holy Spirit come into place. Your will power helps us fight the good fight and win the battle against the forces of the devil. It also helps us love others as You love us. It helps us forgive one another as You forgive us. It helps us show compassion, just as You have shown compassion towards us. If there is peace that comes from us and into other people’s lives in need, You have done it all. We are Your servants and can only do good if we are abiding in Your awesome presence. Lord, please help me and my fellow brothers and sisters in the faith. Lead us by the hand and safely carry us on Your righteous path. May our light so shine before men, that they may glorify You, who is in heaven. I love You, Lord. Amen.
Job 12:12,13 (KJV)
12 With the ancient is wisdom; and in length of days understanding.
13 With him is wisdom and strength, he hath counsel and understanding.
Believers in Christ are lifted up in the wisdom and counsel of God, while the foolish are laid low in their own understanding.
