Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom. Psalm 90:12 (NIV)
Heart Of Wisdom
That is what I want. That is my desire. That is my prayer. What do you want? What is your desire? What is your prayer? I want a heart of wisdom. What would you do with a heart of wisdom? Where would a heart of wisdom lead you? What would a heart of wisdom give you to do? Those are great questions that are worthy of my deepest thoughts. Fortunately, they are not new questions or new thoughts to me. You have put those questions before me in many ways and at various times before. So, what are your deepest thoughts in answer to my questions? A heart of wisdom will help me to live a life without regrets. A heart of wisdom will help me to know and do your will. A heart of wisdom will guide the entire course of my life. A heart of wisdom will help me to make the wisest use of every day that you have given me to live. A heart of wisdom will help me to bear fruit for your kingdom and bring glory to your name. You have answered well. I have only answered well because the heart of wisdom you have been giving to me. It pleases me that you know this to be true.
Let’s talk more about your receiving all that you are asking of me. Let’s talk more about you gaining a heart of wisdom. I’m listening attentively to you. Well then, you have answered one of my questions without my asking it of you. Listening attentively to me is how you will gain a heart of wisdom. Of that, I have no doubt. How will you make yourself available to me? How will you listen attentively to me? That is a condition of my receiving what I am asking of you, isn’t it? It would be foolish to think that you would give me a heart of wisdom if I failed to listen attentively to you. That is correct. So, I will set aside a daily time and place to meet with you in prayer. I will set aside a daily time and place to meet with you in worship. I will set aside a daily time and place to meet with you in your word. In this set time and place, I will listen to all that you have to say to me. My listening to you will not stop in our set time and place of meeting. I know that you will use our set time and place of meeting to help me to hear your voice guiding through the moments of my day. You are correct, as you keep on listening to me, I will give you a heart of wisdom and teach you to number your days and wisely live the life I have given you to live. Thank you, Lord. I will keep on listening to you. That will be very good.
Lord, I will stop to listen to you. I will wait for your teaching. I will receive your instruction. I will follow your guidance. I will rely on you completely. Give me a heart of wisdom. Teach me to number my days so that my life will be wisely spent in your service. Amen
