Job 32:8

"But it is the spirit in man, the breath of the Almighty, that makes him understand."

Understanding is no constant, solid thing I can store up for myself. Wisdom is the living breath of God- the Holy Spirit, our connection to God. It's no coincidence that "spirit" comes from the Latin word spirare, to breathe.

Lord, breathe into me, inspire me. Let me understand.

Did you see... or were you told about the movie 'Breathe' that Wendell played during prep week?

Proverbs 28:5 - that was the verse I was trying to think about yesterday

No, I didn't see it, or hear about it. Hmm.

"those who seek the LORD understand it completely." :)
