In my younger days I was very naive and trusting. A sucker in waiting you might say.
As there was maturity in my Christian walk there was not a spirit of cynicism but rather one of wisdom.
One of the traits learned was of an old Jewish tradition that dictated the before any deal was made first there must be three days of prayer. Following this simple procedure has prevented a lot of grief and frustration.
As we pray Jehovah leads us to Bible verses or when reading a contract to notice things which were overlooked the first time which ensnares us. This has prevented me from entering into horrible contracts which would have brought nothing of benefit to me and considerable loss.
He leads us to be patient and look at the character of those around us which prevents us from mixing with the wrong company as He opens our eyes to their attitudes and disposition. This has prevented me from getting entangled in disastrous relationships.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah ‘Ori (the Lord is my Light) for blessing me with the light of Your Divine wisdom in every aspect of my life. It leads me from trouble and onto the path of righteousness. I extol Thee in the name of the wisest king of them all Jesus Christ. Amen.
May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.
