“Call Out For Insight”

This morning was ONE OF THOSE MORNINGS when it seems like NOTHING went well—mostly because of kids’ attitudes.   I feel like I was bombarded by one child (who shall remain nameless) from the moment I got out of bed, and foolishly thinking that this problem would go away, I just kept making breakfast and getting ready without stopping to deal with a sinful heart.  But it didn’t go away; it got worse. 

Then, during my devotions, I read Proverbs 2, and was impressed with the WORDS Solomon chose to describe HOW we are to seek after wisdom and insight (which I REALLY NEED)!

“…if you CALL OUT  for insight and RAISE YOUR VOICE for understanding, if you SEEK IT LIKE SILVER and SEARCH FOR IT as for hidden treasures, THEN you will…find the knowledge of God.”  (parts of Proverbs 2:3,4,5)

I certainly feel like CALLING OUT and RAISING MY VOICE for help after this morning!  But the truth is, I should be doing that EVERY DAY!  Even routinely asking God for wisdom every Monday isn’t good enough to last the whole week!  I often say that working with seven sinners all day—eight, including myself—is REALLY HARD!  So every morning I need to “cry aloud to God… and he will hear me.”  (Psalm 77:1)

Note:  The picture is not mine, but it reflects how I felt this morning!
