6 For the LORD gives wisdom,
and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.
No reason to look anywhere else. It is the Lord who gives wisdom!
8 for he guards the course of the just
and protects the way of his faithful ones.
This is so amazing to me. There are times when I have chosen to be obedient, but honestly didn't have a clue what was going to happen or how it was going to work out--God was guarding my course, my path! So awesome!
16 It will save you also from the adulteress,
from the wayward wife with her seductive words,
17 who has left the partner of her youth
and ignored the covenant she made before God.
Remember here that Solomon's own mother falls into this category.
Lord, I'm feeling like there is so much for me to remember and keep track of in order to be wise. Please just help me look to you and delight in you instead of worrying about the checklist.
