  10. Wow I got so excited when I saw this thinking it was an online Bible study!
    I have made this verse from Ps.90 my verse to dwell on this year.
    “Teach me to number my days aright so that I may gain a heart of wisdom.” And then reading through Proverbs for my Quiet time I find it referred to again…this heart of wisdom. His wisdom.

    Thank you so much for this article. It resonates with me as I am learning to intentionally look less at my smart phone or the internet.

  12. Where don’t I need wisdom? In parenting a lost young man, making baby steps into my tiny art buisness, living with chronic migraine… If nothing else there are plenty of opportunities for God to show me who he is. 🙂

  13. Recently, I have felt such conviction over the things in my heart. They aren’t the big things that would ruin your life; they’re the little things that add up and show you that you need to pay attention. My heart needs wisdom. I need a guard over my heart, I need a clean heart.
    Thank you for such a wonderful devotion reminding me how powerful His wisdom is!

But sometimes, he depends on his own power instead of God’s. I am trying so hard to be a good light to him. I pray and long for a Christian home. I long for us to worship and praise and pray together. To attend church and be a part of God’s Kingdom, always putting God first in our lives, together, here on earth. A three fold cord that can never be broken. I pray for wisdom to bring lost souls to the glory of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Thank you, Incourage, for the guidance and encouragement that your articles inspire in seeking the wisdom of God. Blessings to every author and every reader. May we all grow and depend only on God’s wisdom, here on earth.

  20. I need wisdom in responding with love but also boundaries with my children with behavioral challenges

  21. R. C. Sproul said, “The fundamental deception of Satan is the lie that obedience can NEVER bring happiness. Titus 3:1 says, And all these blessing shall come upon you and overtake you, if you obey the voice of the Lord your God. Please Lord help us to obey You. In Jesus’ name I pray, (-: Kerry

  22. I need wisdom before offering advice to my friends.I tend to rely on my emotions when responding to people. Many of the folks who I encounter are struggling with loss, health issues and/or family problems. God is always there to give us wisdom, I need only to ask.

  23. I am seeking God’s wisdom in my life as I approach my 60th birthday this summer. My husband passed away recently at 60 years of age and although I don’t admit it, I worry about walking through this year.

I want to live by God’s wisdom leading me in all areas of my life and not be afraid of what God has for me next.

  24. Love what I just read! Sometimes we need reminders =). I need wisdom in my family situation – my children and the division that has come in. I know God is able and He is in the midst working.

  25. I need His wisdom how to move forward in my relationship with a dear long time friend who is going through a dark night of her soul and has asked me to “back off”.

  26. This is so true I go to Google more than God. Sometimes we need things to be said, and then pointed out and realize what we need to correct. Thank you for this message today so excited to get these books. Excited to enter this contest.

  27. I am seeking God’s Wisdom with a friends relationship right now. We have been friends a long time but I feel like she has been a toxic friend in the last year.

  29. Finances are where I need wisdom, Getting paid once a month is getting more & more challenging. Should I get a part time job in addition to my full time to increase revenue stream?

I need wisdom in all areas of life…I need it to keep me in line with God and His ways..I need it right n0w with my son and dil…they don’t feel i’m important enough to be in the family..i guess they don’t believe i have any wisdom and i don’t know how to respond to them without getting into an argument…my dil told me she can love only my son and grandchildren..please..i need wisdom and guidance

  34. I struggle with knowing when to speak, what NOT to say, discernment while ministering to others in need and the best ways to meet the need, dealing with “sandpaper” Christians at work . . . and frustration. “Unplugging” myself from the news and plugging myself into God’s word helps provide balance and objectivity, but I always feel as if something is missing.

  36. I need God to keep the wisdom in me to assist others and myself in the right way.

  37. I need wisdom in dealing with transitioning into a caregiver role many years ahead of when I thought this role would start.

  38. I have been seeking God’s wisdom about a relationship that is currently estranged. I really messed up months ago when, instead of turning to God, I turned, not to Google, but to friends and acquaintances. Instead of trusting that since God brought me to it, He would surely bring me through it, I went in search of “advice” and “counsel” from others who did not fully know the other person involved, or the circumstances. Instead of going straight to the person and communicating my concerns, I went to everyone else. Instead of thinking on “whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable” (Phil 4 8-9), I thought about the worst-case-scenario. By the time I realized what I had done, it was too late. It was too late for me, but it’s not to late for God. I’m believing for a miracle and praying for the wisdom to know when to reach out.

  39. At this time in my life I need God’s strength more than ever my mother-in-law is dying I need his wisdom and strength to help me and my husband to get through this she is not eating or drinking and we have told her God and her relatives are waiting for her. She is hanging on. Thank you.

  42. I pray for wisdom to do the right things even when they are the hard things. Addiction has ruled my son’s life for so long, and I have failed to do the things that would probably help him the most out of fear. I need the strength and wisdom to do what is best and let go and let God.

  43. I need wisdom in relationships with others. I have a situation where I really need wisdom. I guess several situations if I am honest. I keep on praying about it and sometimes praying about it with tears. Many times with tears! Then I give it over to God. I have been surprised twice now with this situation in the past two weeks in a good way. I have been wanting that CSB Devotional Bible for years. Thank you for providing another opportunity to win!

  49. This would be a wonderful Bible study for me because I think everyone needs wisdom, but most specifically biblical wisdom. I would love to be selected for this give away. I love learning from the Word of God.

  50. We have been doing a small family devotion and beed doing reading of Proverbs. “Wisdom calls out in the street, she lifts her voice in the square” I just love how wisdom is portraying as someone calls out for people to listen. I am not surprised that Salomon asked for wisdom. Maybe because I am a wife and mom, I realized now more than ever how important walking with God and His wisdom is. In decision making, in relationship, in so many aspect of our life. Thank you for sharing this and the chance to win the

  56. In Courage,

    So often we turn to Google, phones, friends for answers first. Then we say “I tried that now all I have left is prayer”. Why don’t we pray first & seek God’s wisdom? I need wisdom for my job situation. Even though God gave me this job in Dec. 2021-it has completely changed from what I was doing. Not happy at all. Trying to find the right position for my personality & skills. Deep down I know God will take care of this for me. Also have a minor injury (trigger finger) that I need to get fixed.

    Abba Father, Send a discerning heart & mind to ALL the women here. They need it in various areas of their lives. Guide & direct their steps. Shower them with your love & grace in these trying times. In Jesus Name AMEN!

    Blessings 🙂

  63. Thanks (In)Courage! I need wisdom all over the joint if I’m honest LOL… but if I had to pin-point a specific area I’d say in my career/job/position as we’re migrating with a newly purchased company. Migrations are difficult but also scary; as you learn new things and pray you will make the cut and that new leaders will see the value you bring to your role. I’ve been praying for grace to accept all of the newness and the ability to shine the Lord in all of these new areas to so many new people. Thanks for shining a light to those of us who tune in daily to read your encouragement.

  64. I so need the Lord’s wisdom concerning medical decisions. As I am older in years, I find it sad that so many doctors no longer have our best interest, due to being over worked and controlled by insurance and regulations. Yes, I research and then pray, but want to seek His wisdom first! Thank you for sharing these words of wisdom.

  65. Still useful? I need wisdom to find a ministry opportunity with fellowship. Feeling useless in retirement although I do pray/intercede extensively and do give to church and Christian ministries and support children in various ministries, I would love to be involved in a face to face ministry with fellowship and accountability.

  66. My son recently got married and my daughter-in-law and I are having trouble communicating. We both seem to hurt each others feelings a lot. It was a quick moving relationship – they married after only knowing each other for 8 months before getting married and I only knew her for about 4 months. She is a very sweet girl, but we always seem to say the wrong things to each other. I need help with learning how to better talk with her.

I love them with my whole heart and often feel like I am quick to anger, inpatient and feel like I am not guiding them the way God wants me too.
