For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.
In 1373, when Julian of Norwich was thirty years old, she became ill and nearly died. When her minister prayed with her, she experienced a number of visions in which she considered Jesus’ crucifixion. After miraculously recovering her health, she spent the next twenty years living in solitude in a side room of the church, praying over and thinking through the experience. She concluded that “love was his meaning”; that is, that Christ’s sacrifice is the supreme manifestation of God’s love.
Julian’s revelations are famous, but what people often overlook is the time and effort she spent prayerfully working out what God revealed to her. In those two decades, she sought to discern what this experience of His presence meant as she asked Him for His wisdom and help.
As He did with Julian, God graciously reveals Himself to His people, such as through the words of the Bible; through His still, small voice; through a refrain of a hymn; or even just an awareness of His presence. When this happens, we can seek His wisdom and help. This wisdom is what King Solomon instructed his son to pursue, saying he should turn his ear to wisdom and apply his heart to understanding (Proverbs 2:2). Then he would “find the knowledge of God” (v. 5).
God promises to give us discernment and understanding. As we grow in a deeper knowledge of His character and ways, we can honor and understand Him more.
Reflect & Pray
How does God reveal Himself to you most often? When He does, how do you come to understand what He’s revealed?
Gracious God, help me to grow in Your wisdom

The first printing of the Declaration of Independence has one signature - John Hancock.
When he saw it, he asked, “Is mine the only treason?”
That’s when he insisted they come back later to sign what is now known as the engrossed copy (Aug., 1776).
The copy of the Declaration sent to King George has one signature.

Nothing big over the weekend, just helped Robin with some yardwork a few days and just mellowed out and celebrated America.
Anything happened your way? I suspect the museum was busy?

Answered one question before being jacked
Got 9 of 10 (knew that Adams and Jefferson died on July 4 but didn’t pick Monroe as the third one)
I did better than I thought I would. History wasn’t my strong suit in school.
No rain here so far but MAYBE we’ll get a little something tonight. A few small showers are starting to form just south of us and they might move up here. The clouds sure look ugly in that direction and there’s a little bit of lightning.
Just very hot and steamy all day and the rest of the week will be even hotter. UGH!
