“Lean not on your own understanding.” Proverbs 3:5

“Do not be wise in your own opinion.” Romans 12:16

“For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God.” 1 Corinthians 3:19

Whoever desires to know the will of the Lord and prays earnestly for instruction, shall certainly know His will. But he must not be wise in his own opinion, nor lean to his own understanding, nor expect that the wisdom or learning of this world will explain the things of God. He must not seek to reconcile the word to his lusts — but combat his lusts by the word. In short, he must come to Jesus for instruction, with great simplicity of mind; and not come for a month or a year — but sit all his life at the feet of Jesus, to receive instruction from Him.

Lord, make me jealous of myself; enable me to go in and out with prayer, and keep me from all errors that may hurt my soul. Be my teacher. Give me a docile disposition, a retentive memory, and a good and honest heart, that so I may receive, retain, and make use of Your instructions. O for that wisdom which is from above and is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, easy to be entreated, full of mercy and of good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy!
