6For the Lord gives skillful and godly Wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding.
7He hides away sound and godly Wisdom and stores it for the righteous (those who are upright and in right standing with Him); He is a shield to those who walk uprightly and in integrity,
Proverbs 2:6-7 (AMP)
Have you ever been given bad advice? Once you’ve been given bad advice, it is very hard to listen to that person again, isn’t it? It also makes you leary of other folks’ advice. But the important thing to remember is that the Psalmist reminds us that the Lord gives us skillful and godly wisdom. His lips will never lie or give us bad advice – out of His mouth comes knowledge and understanding. He is aware of our situation before we are and He already knows the outcome! Who best to give us advice about our lives but the One that is in control of our lives? That doesn’t mean that He won’t send others in our path that will give us sound, biblical advice, but we are also armed with the fact that the Lord ultimately knows what’s best for us and He has, according to verse 7, stored sound and godly wisdom for the righteous! Again, we are reminded that He is our shield – our protector our guard as we walk uprightly and in integrity!
Continue to walk upright before the Lord and remember that He has stored up sound and godly wisdom for your situation. Have you taken your cares to Him?
