wisdom from God

My life verse is this:
 
James 1:5 (nlt) --- If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking.
 
God continues to throw huge blessings and thoughts my way.  What I am really praying for is that my time with God will be sweeter and sweeter as I focus more on Him.  And that is being answered as I focus on Him.
 
I needed to hear about wisdom this morning.  That is where my daily reading in Proverbs hit home.  Walk some of that path with me from Proverbs 2 (nasb):
 
2 Make your ear attentive to wisdom, Incline your heart to understanding; 

3 For if you cry for discernment, Lift your voice for understanding; 

4 If you seek her as silver And search for her as for hidden treasures; 

5 Then you will discern the fear of the LORD And discover the knowledge of God. 

6 For the LORD gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding. 

7 He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk in integrity...

10 For wisdom will enter your heart And knowledge will be pleasant to your soul; 

11 Discretion will guard you, Understanding will watch over you, 

20 So you will walk in the way of good men And keep to the paths of the righteous. 
 
That is so good.  I needed that.  How about you?
