“O Lord, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps.” “He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool: but whoso walketh wisely, he shall be delivered.” God has graciously told us that “if any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering: for he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.” “Give therefore Thy servant an understanding heart … that I may discern between good and bad.” And the Lord has promised to do this for His own, for “if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding; if thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures; then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God. For the Lord giveth wisdom: out of His mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.” For “there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding.” “What man is he that feareth the Lord? Him shall He teach in the way that He shall choose.”
Our wisdom is not sufficient To trust in our time of need; The Lord’s perfect understanding Can show us wisdom indeed.
