Worship Folder | Fill-in Outline

Intro: The Psalms ultimately end in worship; the Proverbs in wisdom …

Why do we believe that wisdom is less a commodity or skill and more a relationship?

What happens when we don’t value this relationship?

How does God’s grace hold together 2 dynamics that our world just cannot fit together?


1. Worship the LORD for His wisdom! Praise Him, Father, Son and Holy Spirit for His truthfulness, trustworthiness and total perspective on absolutely everything.

2. How have you been foolish to exalt your opinion over what God has expressed in His Word? Confess your arrogance and folly to Jesus, asking Him to forgive you and to rescue you from your sinful rebellion.

3. Give thanks for Jesus’ wisdom, especially His ability to work in ways that no one in this world could’ve imagined as effective! Thank Him for taking the place we deserve for our foolish rebellion and for planting His wisdom in us by His Spirit.

4. Who do you know that exalts their opinion over what God has expressed in His Word? Pray for them asking the Lord to have mercy upon them to open their eyes to their true need (and danger) and that they would trust in Jesus.

5. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you grow in wisdom. Pray for insight into God’s character and Word (and into your own heart) so that you would eagerly turn from your folly to trust and follow the LORD.
