Our Daily Bread 5 July 2022 Devotional For Today, Tuesday: Message Written By Lisa M. Samra (Our Daily Bread Ministries) || ODB  Daily Reading Now 

TOPIC: Wisdom and Understanding

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE: Proverbs 2:1–11

My son, if you receive my words and treasure up my commandments with you,

 2  making your ear attentive to wisdom and inclining your heart to understand;

 3  yes, if you call out for insight and raise your voice for understanding,

 4  if you seek it like silver and search for it as for hidden treasures,

 5  then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God.

 6  For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding;

 7  he stores up sound wisdom for the upright; he is a shield to those who walk in integrity,

 8  guarding the paths of justice and watching over the way of his saints.

 9 Then you will understand righteousness and justice and equity, every good path;

 10  for wisdom will come into your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul;

 11  discretion will iwatch over you, understanding will guard you,

KEY VERSE: For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. – Proverbs 2:6

BIBLE IN A YEAR: Job 30–31; Acts 13:26–52

SCRIPTURE: The book of Proverbs helps us understand theology—the nature of wisdom as centred in God—and also guides us toward practical skill in living. From an ethical standpoint, this leads to flourishing not only for the individual but also for the community. The proverbs of the Bible help guide us toward wise attitudes and behaviour and away from foolish ones.

MESSAGE 

In 1373, when Julian of Norwich was thirty years old, she became ill and nearly died. When her minister prayed with her, she experienced a number of visions in which she considered Jesus’ crucifixion. After miraculously recovering her health, she spent the next twenty years living in solitude in a side room of the church, praying over and thinking through the experience. She concluded that “love was his meaning”; that is, that Christ’s sacrifice is the supreme manifestation of God’s love.

Julian’s revelations are famous, but what people often overlook is the time and effort she spent prayerfully working out what God revealed to her. In those two decades, she sought to discern what this experience of His presence meant as she asked Him for His wisdom and help.

As He did with Julian, God graciously reveals Himself to His people, such as through the words of the Bible; through His still, small voice; through a refrain of a hymn; or even just an awareness of His presence.

When this happens, we can seek His wisdom and help. This wisdom is what King Solomon instructed his son to pursue, saying he should turn his ear to wisdom and apply his heart to understanding (Proverbs 2:2). Then he would “find the knowledge of God” (v. 5).

God promises to give us discernment and understanding. As we grow in a deeper knowledge of His character and ways, we can honor and understand Him more.

REFLECT: How does God reveal Himself to you most often? When He does, how do you come to understand what He’s revealed?
