Discipleship Study – Guidance – Proverbs 2:6-9 – Every Good Path – Growing As Disciples

For the LORD gives wisdom, and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. He holds victory in store for the upright, he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless, for he guards the course of the just and protects the way of his faithful ones. Then you will understand what is right and just and fair–every good path. Proverbs 2:6-9 (NIV) 

Guard And Guide

Do you want what I want to give to you? What do you want to give to me? I will give you wisdom. I will give you knowledge and understanding. Yes, I desperately want your wisdom, knowledge and understanding. What must I do if I want to receive your wisdom, knowledge and understanding? You have already taken your first step toward receiving what I want to give to you. I’m not sure what you mean. You must want my wisdom, knowledge and understanding. The key word in your first step is “wanting”. You didn’t say that you were interested in my wisdom, knowledge and understanding. You didn’t say that you were curious about my wisdom, knowledge and understanding. You didn’t indicate that you would give my wisdom, knowledge and understanding your strong consideration. You did not say that you may or may not follow my wisdom, knowledge and understanding. No, I did not. You have expressed a strong desire to receive what I want to give you. You said you were desperate to receive my wisdom, knowledge and understanding. That’s right, I did. That’s your first step to receiving what I want to give to you. What are my next steps?

What will you do because you desperately want my wisdom, knowledge and understanding? I will regularly ask for your wisdom, knowledge and understanding. That’s right. How often will you ask for my wisdom, knowledge and understanding? I will ask you for it everyday. I will ask you multiple times in every day. I will continually rely on you to give me your wisdom, knowledge and understanding. That’s a good second step. What will you do with my wisdom, knowledge and understanding once you have received it from me? I will put your wisdom, knowledge and understanding into practice in my daily life. That’s very good. If you want my wisdom, knowledge and understanding and ask for it and put it into practice then you will really be receiving all that I want to give you. You can count on that.

What will my wisdom, knowledge and understanding do for you? Your wisdom, knowledge and understanding will guard and guide my life. It will be a shield that protects my life. It will help me to walk according to your will and your ways. It will lead me on the path of life as I follow and serve you. It will help me to know and do your will. It will lead me in victory. Yes, it will.

Lord, open my ears to hear your words of wisdom, knowledge and understanding so that I will walk uprightly, blamelessly, justly and faithfully with you. Guard and guide my life on the path that you have laid out for me. Amen
