Shape me, mold me

Jehovah Nissi, night departs and day arrives. As I go out into the world fulfilling Your will for my life, I ask that You keep me out of harm’s way. Lead the way.

Oh Heavenly Father, guide me accordingly. Shape me and mold me into a better person. As I draw near to You, may I understand Your teachings and apply them to my life.

Proverbs 2:6-7 For the Lord gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding; He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk uprightly

James 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.

Speak into my life

Grant me the understanding and knowledge of You and Your word, as I open my Bible to read the scriptures or even as I sit and listen to pastor, preacher or apostle reveal what Your Holy Book is speaking into my life.

Help me to understand Jesus Christ, and the way in which He lived His life, so that I can follow in His precious footsteps.

Psalm 111:10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all those who practice it have a good understanding. His praise endures forever!

Ecclesiastes 7:12 For the protection of wisdom is like the protection of money, and the advantage of knowledge is that wisdom preserves the life of him who has it.

Bless me with divine knowledge and wisdom

I long to be in Your Holy presence, Oh Lord. Sit right beside me as I learn. Bring understanding to my mind as Your teachings are revealed to me.

Bless me with divine knowledge so that I could one day teach others. Help me to learn how to be more understanding, kind, patient and compassionate towards my brother just as You were when You walked the earth and came to save us.

In Jesus’ mighty name, I declare and decree that a revelation of wisdom and knowledge of the word would be dawned upon me, Amen.

Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Matthew 7:7-8 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.

Have you asked God for wisdom or knowledge in prayer? King Solomon was noted as being one of the wisest men that ever lived.  The true wisdom that came from Solomon was his prayer to God asking for an understanding mind. Solomon asked for knowledge and God gave it to him! If you are seeking discernment or understanding in an area of your life, I pray that you would surrender it to God and ask Him to give you the knowledge and wisdom that only He can supply. These Bible verses are about knowledge, wisdom and discernment. They are just a small sample of the number of Bible verses and readings you can find on this subject. I pray this sparks your interest to look up these passages and read the context they were taken from.

Prayer For Wisdom and Knowledge

James 1:5  If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God,who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him.

Biblical Example of Praying for Wisdom- Solomon

1 Kings 3:5-12  At Gibeon the LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream by night, and God said, “Ask what I shall give you.” And Solomon said, “You have shown great and steadfast love to your servant David my father, because he walked before you in faithfulness, in righteousness, and in uprightness of heart toward you. And you have kept for him this great and steadfast love and have given him a son to sit on his throne this day. And now, O LORD my God, you have made your servant king in place of David my father, although I am but a little child. I do not know how to go out or come in.  And your servant is in the midst of your people whom you have chosen, a great people, too many to be numbered or counted for multitude. Give your servant therefore an understanding mind to govern your people, that I may discern between good and evil, for who is able to govern this your great people?” It pleased the Lord that Solomon had asked this. And God said to him, “Because you have asked this, and have not asked for yourself long life or riches or the life of your enemies, but have asked for yourself understanding to discern what is right, behold, I now do according to your word. Behold, I give you a wise and discerning mind, so that none like you has been before you and none like you shall arise after you.

Discernment

Daniel 2:21  He changes times and seasons;  he removes kings and sets up kings;he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding;

Psalm 119:66 Teach me good judgment and knowledge, for I believe in your commandments.

Proverbs 16:22 Good sense is a fountain of life to him who has it, but the instruction of fools is folly.

Proverbs 1:5 Let the wise hear and increase in learning, and the one who understands obtain guidance,

Ecclesiastes 7:12 For the protection of wisdom is like the protection of money, and the advantage of knowledge is that wisdom preserves the life of him who has it.

Christian Quotes About Knowledge

The ultimate ground of faith and knowledge is confidence in God.  ~ Charles Hodge

Wisdom is the right use of knowledge. To know is not to be wise. Many men know a great deal, and are all the greater fools for it. There is no fool so great a fool as a knowing fool. But to know how to use knowledge is to have wisdom.  ~ Charles Spurgeon

The Bible was not given to increase our knowledge but to change our lives.  ~ D.L. Moody

Knowledge is power.  ~ Francis Bacon

Knowledge is but folly unless it is guided by grace.  ~ George Herbert

Wisdom, Understanding, Knowledge, Prudence, Intelligence and Spirituality.

Wisdom is Insight. The ability to see into the underlying nature of a thing and to discern it’s true essence. To see something for what it really is. To look past appearance into substance. To read between the lines. To know the truth of a matter.

Intelligence is how well one thinks, which is dependent on how much one knows. The more wisdom, understanding and knowledge you have, the more intelligent you are. True Intelligence is not just academic, factual, worldly or social intelligence alone. True intelligence is encompassing of all intelligences.

Understanding is knowing the meaning or reason of a thing. It is about knowing why something is, and how it is so.

Prudence is foresight. The ability to see into the future of thing and to know the possible outcomes and its effect. It enables you to make decisions ahead of time that will lead things in the direction you want them to go.

Knowledge is the substance that wisdom, intelligence, understanding and prudence operate with. It isn’t just the amount you know. How a specific knowledge works with everything else you know determines whether it strengthens or weakens your wisdom, understanding and prudence.

All wisdom, understanding, knowledge and prudence increases your ability to know what is going on.

The more you can stay aware of how your mind creates your reality and environment, the more CONSCIOUS and AWARE you can become. Which will in turn lets you take back control over yourself and every area of your life.

Spirituality is about beingness. It is about the essence of who you are within. When you operate from a position of beingness, you are not playing by anyone’s rules or reasons but your own. You are real and authentic.

Col 1:9  For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;

God made animals for us to learn from them, and not for them to learn from us.

Proverbs 30
24  There be four things which are little upon the earth, but they are exceeding wise:
25  The ants are a people not strong, yet they prepare their meat in the summer;
26  The conies are but a feeble folk, yet make they their houses in the rocks;
27  The locusts have no king, yet go they forth all of them by bands;
28  The spider taketh hold with her hands, and is in kings’ palaces.

All verses are taken from the Kings James Version Bible.

The lips of wisdom are closed, except to the ears of understanding – The Kybalion

The lips of the wise disperse knowledge: but the heart of the foolish doeth not so. – The Bible

Blessed is the man who finds wisdom, the man who gains understanding, for she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold. She is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her. Long life is in her right hand; in her left hand are riches and honor. Her ways are pleasant ways, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to those who embrace her; those who lay hold of her will be blessed. By wisdom the LORD laid the earth’s foundations, by understanding he set the heavens in place; by his knowledge the deeps were divided, and the clouds let drop the dew.

If a man’s credibility is to be judged, it should be according to the wisdom of his words and not by any institutionalized qualifications.

Pr 12:8 A man shall be commended according to his wisdom.
