I arrived at work earlier than normal. I normally sit a few minutes in my car before I start my day, praying and reading a few Bible verses.
This morning, as I began to open my Bible, I just said, “Help.” I really needed Him to touch my spirit. I randomly opened my Bible and landed on Psalm 119. I began to read the lines I had highlighted and underlined:
Verses 27 and 28
Make me understand the way of Your precepts;
So shall I meditate on Your wonderful works.
My soul melts from heaviness;
Strengthen me according to Your word.
Verse 34Give me understanding, and I shall keep Your law;
Indeed, I shall observe it with my whole heart.
Then Proverbs 2 came immediately to my mind, which reads in part:
…Lift up your voice for understanding,
Seek her as silver, search for her as for hidden treasures;
Then you will understand the fear of the Lord,
And find the knowledge of God.
For the Lord gives wisdom;
From His mouth come knowledge and understanding;
He stores up sound wisdom for the upright;
He is a shield to those who walk uprightly;
He guards the paths of justice,
And preserves the way of His saints.
Then you will understand righteousness and justice,
Equity and every good path.
I know what I must do.
Seek Him first.
