Wisdom for Life

I’ve even become smarter than my teachers since I’ve pondered and absorbed your counsel. Psalm 119:99 MSG

Jesus amazed the learned men in the temple when He was just twelve years old. He had never received professional schooling in the history and law of the Hebrew people, and yet He displayed an incredible insight into even the most complex meanings of Holy Scripture. His understanding far surpassed that of many of the elders present. Where did His incredible knowledge and wisdom come from? God, of course.
True knowledge is not found in books. God has granted us each a measure of common sense and logic. He is willing and able to instruct us in all His ways, if we will take time to contemplate His mysteries. We, too, can amaze the learned of our age by speaking forth the truth of God, which surpasses even the most complex knowledge. Like Christ, we can know more than we ought, through the guidance and counsel of God Himself.

Prayer: Instruct my mind, heart, and soul in all of Your ways, Lord. Teach me the things that are truly important and enable me to spread what I learn to others. Amen.

If you find it hard to understand the Bible and would like some help, this reading came from a book I found called Wisdom from the Psalms – by Dan R. Dick and available on the internet.
