Thankful Thursday - Wisdom & Discernment

I'm not sure if we are supposed to go with a particular theme each week on this or not, so please forgive me if I am not playing by the rules.

Today I am thankful for God’s wisdom and discernment. I am thankful that we can ask for God to reveal His Truth to us and we can trust Him to do so. He will not only do it, He does it with joy and is abundantly generous to give us His Truth when we sincerely seek it.

Lord ~
I ask for your wisdom and discernment for all of us. I ask that you reveal your Truth to us, that we may rely on Your Wisdom instead of our own/the worlds. Where we may be reluctant to accept it, I ask that you transform us. Open our eyes to see, our ears to hear, our minds and hearts to understand.

James 1:5
Now if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives to all generously and without reproach; and it will be given to him.

Proverbs 2:1-5
My son, if you will receive my words and store my commands inside you, paying attention to wisdom, inclining your mind towards understanding – yes, if you will call for insight and raise your voice for discernment, if you seek it as you would silver and search for it as for hidden treasure – then you will understand the fear of Adonai and find knowledge of God.

Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.

James 3:17

But the wisdom from above is, first of all, pure, then peaceful, kind, opent to reason, full of mercy, and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.

Thank you for your words. You put such thought into it with these verses. I am thankful, also, that He will give us wisdom and discernment. I know I have prayed often for that recently as my husband and I are looking toward decisions in our future. I needed to read this tonight. Thanks for letting God speak through you!!!

Ang...Thank you for Wisdom & Discernment, Lord for Ang in all
circumstances that she would use the wisdom of these excellent choices of verse to guide her as You continue to reveal Your Truth to her! I prayed often for these!

I don't believe that there is a rule as to following a theme, although many do follow whatever TT's host does...but being Thankful I believe is what counts!

God bless you as you seek Him first in all things and all these things will be added unto you! Be blessed and continue trusting Him
alone and what His Spirit reveals
