“For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.” – Proverbs 2:6

Who is the greatest source for wisdom in your life?  Maybe you’re thinking of your mom or dad.  Maybe it’s your coach.  The Scripture speaks of someone who is the ultimate source for wisdom and understanding.

In Proverbs chapter 2 and verse 6, Solomon writes, “For the Lord gives wisdom, and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.”

He says that from the Lord’s mouth come knowledge and understanding.  God speaks through His Word daily and gives us knowledge that is pertinent information for daily living.  He also shares his understanding with us, the ability to rightly apply knowledge.

As you prepare for competition today, listen for the Lord’s voice.  He’s always speaking in ways to lead us to knowledge and understanding.  He gives wisdom related to relationships on the team, for excellence in the classroom, and understanding for athletic achievement.

God’s Word, the Bible is always open to us and He speaks loudly each time we’re faithful to open its pages and to read.

II Chronicles 6-7
