As I tried to figure out what to write for today – another day in the life of COVID-19 changing our lives – I went back to verses I have put on pictures and found this one. We need to seek wisdom to navigate the changes this virus has brought. We should pray for wisdom for those making decisions. We should evaluate the wisdom (or lack thereof) in the “news” that we hear. None of us will figure everything out. Only God knows everything – everything that has happened, will happen, or even could have happened. We can’t even keep track of everything that has happened. Our finite minds and intellect have limitations.
The people that I have appreciated the most – the stories that I have followed are from those who look at the facts and seek to interpret them with a calm and gentle spirit. Pandemonium doesn’t help our situation. Gentle wisdom is provided by a God Who cares enough to allow trials to mold and shape us. Read the book of James.
As you go along whichever path God has you walking, don’t forget to seek “the gentleness that wisdom brings.” You’ll find blessing even on the roughest parts of the road.
Dear Heavenly Father, please give the wisdom You have promised. Please help our hearts to be open to the true wisdom that only comes from You. Thank You for all You have done and all You will continue to do in our lives.
I pray this in Jesus’ name.
God is so good.
