“I am with those who love me from everlasting to everlasting. I am with you now in this moment. Rest in me, rest in my presence that I might give you the wisdom and comfort you seek. Each new day is an opportunity for you to see my hand at work in your life and in the lives of those you pray and care for.
Fill your heart and lungs with the breath of my Spirit that you will have the capacity to move and do all that I have for you to do today. As you breathe in the truth of my word, your spirit will be satisfied and encouraged. You will be stimulated and energized, and my sustaining grace will rest upon you.
It is good to sit in my presence, to be silent and to know that I am your God. When you are calm, I will speak to your heart. You will hear my whispers, and I will lead you along the path of wisdom.
The wisdom I provide is first pure. It cuts through darkness and brings the light of my glory to you. It destroys the lies of the enemy and leads you to righteousness and truth. It tears down barriers and removes anything that would keep you from experiencing my holiness.
My wisdom teaches you to walk the path of truth and directs your steps. It is comforting, it is nourishment for your soul that satisfies your deepest needs and empowers you to live the life I have designed for you.
If you want wisdom, if you need direction, ask me for it. My storehouse is full, and I will provide all you need. Trust and believe so that you may receive. I am with you always.”
a prayer…Father, you are so good to me. You speak plainly, yet profoundly. How I love you and need you. I pray that you will give me the pure wisdom that comes from you, so I will be empowered to live my life in the light of your holiness and grace. Amen

- For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. He holds success in store for the upright, he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless, for he guards the course of the just and protects the way of his faithful ones.
