The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God. Deuteronomy 22:5

Cross-dressing may have the approval and protection of civil governments, but who will protect those who practice such abominations from God’s wrath? The only way to escape God’s wrath and eternal punishment for sin is to repent and cling in faith to the cross of Jesus for pardon and forgiveness.

Move me to repent of my sins, O LORD, and look to You for mercy in the sacrifice of Christ Jesus, Thy Son and my Savior. Amen.

[Scripture is quoted from the King James Version of the Bible.]

Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil. It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones. Proverbs 3:7-8

We so often feel we know better than the LORD God and what He has revealed in His Word. But the Scriptures admonish us not to be wise in our own eyes but, rather, to fear and respect the LORD God, listen to His Word, and repent of the sin and evil in our lives and seek God’s forgiveness in the cross of Jesus. That will bring health to our bodies and strength to our bones.

O LORD, Your Word is right and I am wrong. Pardon my sin for the sake of Christ Jesus and His sacrifice on the cross and lead me to walk in accord with Your holy Word. Amen.

Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3:5-6

Often, we are willing to trust in the LORD when His Word coincides with our desires and thinking but not when it doesn’t. True wisdom tells us to trust in the LORD with all our hearts in everything and not to depend upon our own understanding. It urges us to acknowledge the LORD, our Maker, in all our ways and to trust in Him to direct our paths.

O LORD, grant me the wisdom to fully trust You in all things and to walk in Your ways rather than my own. Amen.

My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments: for length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee. Proverbs 3:1-2

We often think of God’s commandments as restrictive and keeping us from the joys of life, but they are truly for our good and keep us from hurt and ruin. Heeding the commandments of the Lord brings “length of days,” “long life” and “peace.”

Grant me wisdom, O LORD, that I might obey Thy commandments and live my life for Thee. I ask in the name of Christ Jesus, my only hope and Redeemer. Amen.

[Scripture is quoted from the King James Version of the Bible.]

My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee; so that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding; yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding; if thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures; then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God. For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding. Proverbs 2:1-6

God, Himself, is the source of true wisdom and He gives it to those who seek Him and hear His words. Knowledge and understanding come from hearing the words of His mouth. Thus, the place to seek wisdom is in God’s Word, the Bible.

Grant that I seek Thy wisdom, O God, and gain knowledge and understanding through the study of Thy Word. I ask in the name of Christ Jesus, my Savior. Amen.
