“The mouth of the righteous man utters wisdom…” Psalm 37:30
The besieged believer who abides in God, rests in Him, drinks of Him–it is into his open mouth that God pours wisdom.
Amidst the bitter seasons of life and the parching heat of struggle. No matter the depth of weakness or the breadth of it.
When we receive (not just accept) each day, and all that it brings, as from God’s loving hand,
…according to His wise Providence,
…supported with His faithful promises,
…empowered by His unquenchable Spirit,
then–and only then–will true wisdom begin to flow from our mouth.
What an encouragement it is to know that our struggles are not wasted. And what a marvel that God can use our weakness as a fountain to refresh others! We may not be able to figure out how He can do it, but we can…
open His Word,
drink in all that He allows in our lives today,
…and let Him fill our mouth with wisdom.
How about you? What will you do today to cultivate and share the fruit of wisdom amidst your weakness?Image by © Royalty-Free/Corbis
