The Path to Wisdom

April 16, 2023 Portia Collins

For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. —Proverbs 2:6

Wisdom cannot be found apart from the Lord. It’s evident that an intelligent mind lies behind all creation. From how the land meets the sky to the individual functioning of the cells in our body, it’s evident that not a single part of life just happened.

God is the Creator of all things. He is infinitely wise. He is timeless. He is unlimited in power and ability. Considering these things begs the question, why do we think we can circumvent God to find the path to wisdom? We can’t. And it’s foolish to think otherwise.

I encourage you to spend the rest of your days seeking the Lord and submitting to Him. This is the true and proper foundation for life. I may not know how to cure cancer or the formula to make a million dollars in a year. But I know (and am learning daily) how to navigate this life with peace, joy, love, and endurance. And it all started with submitting my life to the Lord.

Make it Personal

Are there areas of your life that you haven’t yet submitted to God? Pray that He would reveal any to you today.
