Psalm 69:5,6 (NKJ) O God, You know my foolishness; And my sins are not hidden from You. Let not those who wait for You, O Lord God of hosts, be ashamed because of me; Let not those who seek You be confounded because of me, O God of Israel.
God knows my lack of good sense, my lack of caution and wisdom. He knows the times I act foolish (dispising wisdom, mocking when I am guilty, when I am quarrelsome). God knows my faults, my guilt, my offenses and wrong-doings. They aren't secreted from Him by my actions or words.
And so I ask Him that these traits in me not cause others, who seek Him, to fall or trip up. I ask Him to not let these be confused or insulted by seeing these things in me.
Father, You see all of me. You see my foolishness. When I am like this, I ask that Your wisdom would cause others not to see this in me so as to not cause them to stumble in their faith because of me. But the thing I most ask is that You cause me to have the wisdom needed to overcome my foolishness, Father. Grow me up, I pray!
