Wisdom and Hope

Proverbs 24:14: “Know also that wisdom is sweet to your soul; if you find it, there is a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off.” (NIV)

We describe a cake or cookies as sweet, but we don’t think of wisdom as being sweet. However, God’s Word says it is sweet to our soul. But what if we lack wisdom? What if we need it to make a major decision in our lives? James 1:5 says, “If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.” When my son was a toddler, I sensed God’s call on my life to be a speaker for him. My son was in diapers and still breast-feeding. Wisdom told me that was not the time. I enjoyed the years at home with my son but never gave up hope that one day God would allow me to speak for the kingdom of heaven. God used those years to prepare me for the future. God promises a future hope for all of us, and he promises that it will not be cut off. We can have hope in this life and hope for an eternity with God in heaven.

Dear God, please give me your wisdom. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

Application: Will you talk to God today about your future hope?
