Today’s Scripture: But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere. James 3:17 ESV
The wisdom from above can be trusted; my wisdom can not. The weakness and evil of our flesh proves itself. Can evil and good come out of one vessel? Yes. While we are spirit and flesh, God is Spirit and Truth. We must worship Him in Spirit and in truth and ask Him to overcome our flesh.
Reading in James 3 and Proverbs 30 today I can relate to the weariness and the hypocrisy of the flesh. It is clear we can ask and receive from God. So I am asking, are you?
LORD, please give me Your purity, Your peace, Your gentleness, Your reason, Your mercy, Your fruits, Your sincerity. Overcome me with You. Remove far from me…me.
Only God’s wisdom will help me understand. Where does your wisdom come from?
Today’s Prayer: Heavenly Father, I confess my weakness and frailty to You and I am asking for Your wisdom from above as we are called in Your Word. I know that neither I nor this world is the wisdom I seek so I am asking You to rain down and fill me with Your wisdom. I desire Your wisdom and I need it. Thank You for promising to send it to me. I accept Your wisdom. Amen.
