Above the Din

at the head of the noisy streets she cries out, in the gateways of the city she makes her speech: Proverbs 1:21

Going back to the previous devotion, I knew my mother’s voice. If I was playing and I heard “time for dinner” I knew it wasn’t my neighbor’s mom even though she didn’t call out my name specifically. Over the chatter and the playing and the cars zooming past, I knew my mother’s voice distinctively (as I write this, I can hear her voice still).

You and I will have to push away the clutter to hear the wisdom that come from God. When we do hear it over and over and over again, it will be like that familiar voice that you can pick out in a noisy crowd. You know the voice, and when you’re in a situation that you need a great deal of wisdom, that Godly wisdom will be loud and clear.

As we study wisdom, continue to pray that you will hear that wisdom out of the cluttered noises of the world.
