When I need to consider my next steps, relying solely upon my intellect may leave me mired in too many options. I ponder the best way to reach a goal or try to puzzle out the best opportunity to pursue.
My human mind can use logic, weigh pros and cons, do research, or rely on a trusted friend for advice. But my intellectual reasoning can get me only so far.
Turning within, I use my divine power of wisdom to discern my best path. Centering myself in the presence and power of God, I breathe deeply and feel the wisdom of God fill my mind and my heart. A calm certainty begins to pervade my consciousness. My wisdom informs my mind and directs my steps.
So teach us to count our days that we may gain a wise heart.—Psalm 90:12
