Right Proportions

Proverbs 2:6-7 (NKJV)

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 uprightly;


The Lord gives us wisdom.  He gives us the wisdom with one requirement and that is to come to Him seeking it.  We need to pray, ask for the Holy Spirit’s guidance, spend time in His Word and pray again.  Now praying is a time of listening also and not us just doing all the talking.  In listening the key to gaining wisdom is to allow Him to show you what you need to learn and you not just looking for Scriptures to match what you want.

In His generosity of granting wisdom there is a second blessing that goes along with receiving it and that is the wisdom is always in portions that we are ready to receive.  Where verse 7 shows the wisdom is stored up it shows that God proportions it to us in increments we can grow in.  He gives us His right answer in His right timing so we will in turn be blessed.  Too much at one time would overwhelm us and we can only handle so much at one time.  He knows our wants and our needs and when we are good stewards with what He gives us He will get all the glory.



Thank You Heavenly Father for the wisdom and understanding that You give us.  Help us apply it in ways You will always get all the glory.  Amen.
