A Daily Devotional with David Olatona – WISDOM, A BLESSING TO YOU

Main Text
Proverbs 2:9-15

Watchword
When wisdom enters your heart, and knowledge is pleasant to your soul.
Proverbs 2:10 (NKJV)

Having wisdom from the Word of God into our hearts is vital. Jesus said that it is out of the abundance of what is in the heart that the mouth speaks. Whatever reigns in our hearts will reign in our lives. Knowing God intimately will become pleasant to our souls. When we talk of our soul we are referring to our mind, will, and emotions. When wisdom enters our hearts – knowing God will be pleasant to our minds, will and emotions.

Wisdom is an advantage to the one who possesses it. Wisdom with Knowledge gives a person tremendous advantage. A really good working knowledge of God’s Word can keep you from making mistakes. The answers to all of life’s problems can be found in the Word of God. The heart controls the conscious and subconscious actions of man. If the heart of man is stayed on the Lord, there is no way that man can be defeated.

Walking with God is more than just knowing a bunch of principles and ideas that is being practised in religion. God wants a vital relationship with us. It takes the entrance of wisdom into our hearts for us to move into that precious relationship. As we seek the Lord, may He give us grace to know such a marvelous intimacy with Him.

Confession
I receive the wisdom and the ability to perceive and grasp any situation to know what should be done to please God.

Prayer
Make your pleasure my watchword, let my life be satisfying to you. Help me to live for you. Let my life be a reflection of your purpose for the world.
Amen.
