Wisdom 2.6

Who sets the boundaries of your steps? Along the path of life there are many voices speaking their version of “truth”. One of the common calls from the shadows is the phrase, “Follow your heart.” That may sound like wise counsel, but for the follower of Christ, the qualifying question should be, “Does it match the desire of God’s heart?” Consider the words of a wise and experienced man:

“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.” – Proverbs 2:6-8 NKJV

Today there may be an opportunity to speak a word of instruction; may it come from His knowledge. There may be an opportunity to share your opinion; may it be from within His wisdom. New invitations may be around the corner; may His Word be the standard to compare the options. Who will set the boundaries of your path today?
