Breaktime: Life’s Tough Questions

Life’s tough question
I will turn my ear to a proverb; with the harp I will expound my riddle: Psalm 49:4

The psalmist is searching for reason and understanding. He doesn’t want to listen to what the noise is saying; he desires to explain one of life’s difficulties. He heard the voice of wisdom until he understood it and could translate.  The Psalmist even put one of the perplexities of life to music.

Now there are many troubles which come our way. There is so much noise in the world where we can attain life’s solutions, but what if we remained quiet until we heard from God. We all struggle with just going with the flow at times instead of listening for the wisdom we can gain from being still and knowing that He is God.

This wisdom isn’t often found in common understanding or even what may seem right to everyone else, like the psalmist, what if we went to the Word of God and found the answers for life’s tough questions. We could linger with the newfound wisdom until it becomes our decision for life. Listening to the Word can help us gain understanding and confidence even though no one else may be choosing the same. When we make a decision that is contrary to the Bible’s wisdom we will live in confusion and strife.
