DITL Ministry Home
Delighting in the Lord Ministries exists to encourage women in their pursuit and walk with God. Through Bible studies, Biblical teaching and blog posts, we pray DITL is a resource for women seeking to know Jesus, walk with Jesus and be transformed by the power of His Word.
The one thing I ask of the Lord -
the thing I seek most -
is to live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life,
Delighting in the Lord's perfections
and meditating in His temple.
Delighting in God’s Wisdom: A Study on the Book of Proverbs
Wisdom. We need it. We want it – but often look for it in all the wrong places. Every day our life circumstances dictate the need for wisdom. From the simple, everyday choices to the more complex and life changing – we need wisdom for successful decision making. Challenging situations and relationships regularly come in life, often leaving us confused and needing guidance. We read self-help books and ask people for advice. We get educated in different ways or look online for help, yet often come up empty handed. We need wisdom that isn’t subjective or unproven. We need wisdom that leaves us hopeful and confident; alleviating fears and giving us peace. And yet, as we search for it in the world, we often find it lacking and confusing. Where do we find solid wisdom for navigating life’s paths? Solomon will tell us in the book of Proverbs that wisdom begins with the fear of God. Setting our heart on God and trusting in Him is where wisdom begins. Out of that relationship comes a commitment to seek God, obey Him, and trust Him with all of life’s choices. In God is found wisdom because He, alone, knows the beginning from the end. His wisdom goes beyond the seen to the unseen. He alone speaks wisdom into all of life’s circumstances. The search is over for finding wisdom! Proverbs is the “how to” for life and it will lead you to the heart of God and His wisdom. It isn’t a book of formulas. It is a life-giving book of Godly principles and priorities written by a king, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, who was the wisest man in the world. Solomon shares what he learned when he followed wisdom’s path, and also what happened when he wandered off of it. As King Solomon will say in Proverbs 2:4-6, “If you seek her [wisdom] as silver, and search for her as for hidden treasures; then you will understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God. For the LORD gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding.” Join us for this thirteen week study from the book of Proverbs as we gain God’s wisdom to navigate all of life’s challenges and honor Him with our decision-making. Throughout the study we will also be highlighting women of the Bible so that we may learn from both their wise and unwise decisions.
A more detailed and in-depth Bible study with either four or five days of homework. The studies in this series follows the R.E.A.D format of Receive, Experience, Act and Delight. As you read through the given chapter/verses for that day and week, you will answer questions about the text and go to other areas in God's Word looking at similar themes or events. Next you apply the verses in a very personal way by answering questions pertaining to the theme drawn out from that day. You end the day's study with a verse we've chosen that wraps up the day as you delight in God's Truth's and goodness. These studies take about 30 minutes a day to complete. They are verse by verse through different books of the Bible.
