We have heard a lot about safety over the last two years. Unfortunately, we have passionately disagreed on the details. No matter where I stand, or the reason why, I want to seek God for wisdom. Wisdom will direct our thinking through the ever-changing sea of information. God knows everything. He knows how it all fits together. He knows what will happen. He knows the good and bad decisions we will all make.
In Proverbs 2:7-8 we read that God keeps those who follow Him – those who fear Him. He has wisdom reserved for us. He is a shield and watches us. There is safety in the fear of the Lord.
Sometimes we think that the weight of our decisions fully rests on our shoulders. While we need to take responsibility for our decisions, we need to lean on the Lord and seek the wisdom He so freely gives (James 1:5).
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for storing wisdom for us. Thank you for the protection you provide. Please help us to seek You in all our decisions.
I pray this in Jesus’ name.
God is so good.
