The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple. (Psalm 19:7b NIV)
We all need wisdom. No matter how smart we are, no matter how much we know, no matter how much experience we have, we don’t always know what to do or what to say or how to respond when we’re faced with life’s challenges. But God does; and He has given us access to His infinite wisdom via His Word.
King David tells us that “The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple.” We can trust the Bible because we can trust God. God’s Word will never lead us astray or let us down because God will never lead us astray or let us down.
Perhaps the biggest challenge to accessing God’s wisdom is that it requires humility. We don’t like to think of ourselves as “simple;” but in comparison to God, that’s exactly what we are.
