The windy road to wisdom

What is Jesus saying personally to me today – The windy road to wisdom

It would appear that once wisdom gets a hold of you, many blessings are gifted. To get to that place requires a journey on a windy road of tests, trials, moulding and incredible discipline on our behalf. Like any apprentice learning their craft, it takes a certain amount of commitment and determination and the end of this apprenticeship is a straight road full of all the secrets of God. A road worth travelling I think.

Thank you for speaking to me Jesus

How do I respond to what Jesus is saying personally to me today?

I remember in my 30’s thinking that it would pretty good to end up a wise old man. I thought that it would just happen as a result of getting older and enduring life’s experiences. I now know that’s not the case. I am faced with the opportunity to chase wisdom by working my way through Her plagues of discipline and ordeals. It’s not an easy task and it say’s this in the reading, there is no hiding it. There is a person that I want a much better relationship with and I will chase wisdom to create it. I haven’t completely sat back but there is much more that I can do to and I will seek wisdom to help me. I will pray for wisdom, be obedient, pay attention and seek her instructions.

Prayer:

Lord,
I seek your wisdom for healing and restoration in this relationship.
Guide and instruct me Wisdom.
I will walk the windy road to your knowledge and honour your ways.
What ever it is you want me to do I will follow and obey.
Amen

Ecclesiasticus 4:12-21

Wisdom brings up her own sons,
and cares for those who seek her.
Whoever loves her loves life,
those who wait on her early will be filled with happiness.
Whoever holds her close will inherit honour,
and wherever he walks the Lord will bless him.
Those who serve her minister to the Holy One,
and the Lord loves those who love her.
Whoever obeys her judges aright,
and whoever pays attention to her dwells secure.
If he trusts himself to her he will inherit her,
and his descendants will remain in possession of her;
for though she takes him at first through winding ways,
bringing fear and faintness on him,
plaguing him with her discipline until she can trust him,
and testing him with her ordeals,
in the end she will lead him back to the straight road
and reveal her secrets to him.
