As believers, it is vital that we have discernment from the Lord. This means the ability to hear from the Lord, so we can distinguish was it wise and right, so we can faithfully obey Him. After he asked for and received wisdom from the Lord, Solomon wrote “proverbs” to those who love Him. He exhorted us to seek for and cry for wisdom, treating it like a great treasure that is sometimes only found in the depths of faith. When we do, the Lord has wisdom stored up that He wants to give to us, acting to protect us from harm.
