Scripture: Proverbs 29:18 ‘Where there is no revelation people cast off restraint; but blessed is the one who deeds wisdom’s instruction.
God’s revealed wisdom – revelation – is the vehicle through which God provides righteous leadership. His revelation is the bridle in our jaws. By wisdom, He guides us, and He stalls us. Heeding to His wisdom is hearing, ‘Whoa,’ and feeling the gentle nudge hither-to and fro. If we choose not to be led – our path becomes wayward, we become lost and endangered. But Wisdom is my bridle – led by Him, He shows me the Way. He coaches me along, the Kingdom saddled on my back. he is blessing His path, revealing His way and by WIsdom turning my head. Seeking God, is to submit to His leadership, way, and wisdom.
My way is not lost, or wild, or careless is along the way I am seeking God and His revelation. I must lean into Him and in submission to His way take the bridal and carry the Kingdom wherever He may lead. My life lacks discipline apart from God’s Wisdom.
Lord, my God, Teach me to seek and respond to Your revelation – Your wisdom. Restrain me from a wayward path. Coach me along Your path in Your righteousness. Amen.
