Wisdom and God’s Word


Leviticus 9:7-10:20 

Mark 4:26-5:20
Psalm 37:30-40
Proverbs 10:6-7


Psalm 37:30-31 “The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom, and his tongue speaks justice. The law of his God is in his heart; his steps do not slip.”


Do you want wisdom? Do you want the ability to properly assess things? Do you want the ability to know in your heart what is right and what is wrong so as to make the right choices?

Then, the verses for today speak to you. It says, “The mouth of the righteous utters wisdom, and his tongue speaks justice.”

But, the question is “How?” How does this person get to a place where they have grown in wisdom?

The very next verse gives the answer: “The law of his God is in his heart…” He regularly spends significant time with God’s Word so that it is no longer just words on a page. Those words are making their way into his heart. God’s Word is taking up residence within him.

Friend, all that God has for you is tied up in His Word. If you want to grow in wisdom, you’ve got to spend time in His Word. Each and every day, set aside at least 15-30 minutes reading and reflecting on a section of Scripture. Soon, you’ll realize that it’s becoming a part of you, changing you, and you will be blessed by it!
