Going through hard times for any length of time brings an intimacy and time with God that inspire many to ask God for something. Since I rededicated my life to Christ as an adult one of my constant petitions is for understanding. On every occasion especially when I embraced and accepted God’s plan and purpose for my life and direction for my path I find it. I also find a greater love and appreciation for my heavenly Father. Many seek for blessing, love, acceptance and provision from the One who admonishes us to seek to understand.
Psalm 49:3 (Amplified Bible)
3My mouth shall speak wisdom; and the meditation of my heart shall be understanding.
Psalm 111:10 (Amplified Bible)
10The reverent fear and worship of the Lord is the beginning of Wisdom and skill [the preceding and the first essential, the prerequisite and the alphabet]; a good understanding, wisdom, and meaning have all those who do [the will of the Lord]. Their praise of Him endures forever.
