Thoughts on Today's Verse...

We can look for wisdom from many worthless sources and in many futile places. Ultimate wisdom is found only when we intentionally humble ourselves before our incredible God, giving him the reverence and worship he deserves. When we do, we can be assured of this promise:
"For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding" (Proverbs 2:6).  

My Prayer...

Magnificent and awesome God, the great expanse of space and the incredible intricacies of the things in your creation that are so small humble me to silence. Please forgive my lapses into ignorant arrogance and lead me in the way of your wisdom. In Jesus, name. Amen.
