Searching for Wisdom
‘My child, will you treasure my wisdom? Then, and only then, will you acquire it. And only if you accept my advice and hide it within will you succeed.
So train your heart to listen when I speak and open your spirit wide to expand your discernment— then pass it on to your sons and daughters.
Yes, cry out for comprehension and intercede for insight.
For if you keep seeking it like a man would seek for sterling silver, searching in hidden places for cherished treasure,
then you will discover the fear of the Lord and find the true knowledge of God.
Wisdom is a gift from a generous God, and every word he speaks is full of revelation and becomes a fountain of understanding within you.
For the Lord has a hidden storehouse of wisdom made accessible to his godly lovers. He becomes your personal bodyguard as you follow his ways, protecting and guarding you as you choose what is right.

Then you will discover all that is just, proper, and fair, and be empowered to make the right decisions as you walk into your destiny.
When wisdom wins your heart and revelation breaks in, true pleasure enters your soul.
If you choose to follow good counsel, divine design will watch over you and understanding will protect you from making poor choices.
It will rescue you from evil in disguise and from those who speak duplicities.
For they have left the highway of holiness and walk in the ways of darkness.
They take pleasure when evil prospers and thoroughly enjoy a lifestyle of sin.
But they’re walking on a path to nowhere, wandering away into deeper deception.
