“And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19
Every morning when I sit down to write, I say, “Lord, your daughters desperately need a word from you. I pray you minister to their deeper needs.” And everyday He does just that! I want you to know God cares about every need in your life. Not just your need for an on time word from Him, but He cares about every physical need, financial need, emotional need, relational or spiritual need. He is fully aware, fully able and willing to meet your need.
I remember when my husband and I were without a car for almost two years. We rode public transportation, rode on a bike and paid for cabs to take us places. And while walking one day with bags of groceries in my hands, I said, “Lord, we need a car. This has gone on long enough!” He didn’t give us a car, He gave us wisdom. We were living in the wrong city trying to make a life for ourselves outside of the will of God. Once we heard from Him and relocated to the place He told us to go to, doors began to open, my husband landed a great paying job and within a week we had a car.
God’s provision is in His wisdom.
Since that experience, I’ve learned to ask for wisdom before asking Him to meet any need. I’ve learned to ask for His guidance, because I know as long as He’s my shepherd, I shall not want (see Psalms 23:1).
Prayer: Father, you are my shepherd, I shall not want. As long as you’re leading me and I’m following you, you will provide and take care of me. More than any need in my life, I ask for your wisdom and your guidance. Show me the way you want me to go and as I heed your wisdom, I know you will supply my every need as you said you would. Help me not to lean to my own understanding, but to trust in you, because you love me and you care. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

“Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men, but as wise” (Ephesians 5:15).
Living wisely will set you apart from the world.
Walking in wisdom is an element of the worthy walk that Paul has been describing since the beginning of Ephesians 4. He says in verse 1, “Walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you have been called” and then proceeds to describe this worthy walk with the following characteristics: It’s a humble walk (4:1-3), a united walk (4:4-16), a unique walk (4:17-32), a loving walk (5:1-7), an illuminated walk (5:8-14), and a wise walk (5:15-17). The point that Paul is making in describing the various elements of the worthy walk is that Christians are different from the world. The world can’t be humble because everyone is fighting for his rights. The world can’t be united because it celebrates and exalts differences. The world can’t be unique because it’s trapped in its own self-destruction. The world can’t love because it doesn’t have the life of God—the source of real love. The world can’t know light because it lies in the system of darkness. And the world can’t be wise because the wisdom of God is hidden from the mind of man. As Paul says in 2 Timothy 3:7, “always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”
Realize that being different from the world is an asset to your Christian witness, not a hindrance. When others see you obeying Scripture—when they see you walking in wisdom—they’ll notice you’re not like them. That difference can create opportunities to tell them about your Savior. Jesus said, “Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven” (Matthew 5:16). Keep walking in wisdom, and let others be attracted to the light of Christ!
Suggestions for Prayer
Ask God to help you be a witness whose testimony shines brightly for Christ.

How does 1 Peter 2:12 say you are to live? Why?
Good morning, DOTK writers! This Word is right on time and Just this morning as I sat down at my computer, I looked at a Scripture posted there from Psalm 25:4-5, “Show me the right path, O LORD; point out the road for me to follow. Lead me by Your truth and teach me, for You are the God who saves me. All day long I put my hope in You.” And I prayed, “Good morning, Father. Thank You for Your word today. Please forgive me for leaning on my own understanding in providing for my needs. Give me the wisdom to trust You–that you WILL supply all my needs according to Your Word. Help me to trust in YOU for everything.”
