Enlightenment and wisdom
Grow in stages –
Through shafts of insight
And of inspiration;
During prayers of thanks, joy,
Of deep distress;
Or silent contemplation.
The Lord my God will enlighten my darkness (Psalm 18:28; NKJV).
Teach us to number our days carefully so that we may develop wisdom in our hearts (Psalm 90:12; CSB).
The inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding (Job 32:8; WEB).
Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18; NLT).
In my distress I cried out to the Lord (Psalm 18:6; NLT).
Be silent before the Sovereign Lord (Zephaniah 1:7; NIV).
We all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image (2 Corinthians 3:18; NIV).
