My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, for they will prolong your life many years and bring you peace and prosperity. Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones. Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the first-fruits of all your crops; then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine. My son, do not despise the Lord's discipline, and do not resent his rebuke, because the Lord disciplines those he loves, as a father the son delights in. Proverbs 3:1-12. What does this mean to you? When you read it, how does it make you feel? What understanding do you have in God's Word? We are really seeing what wisdom can do. We are seeing that wisdom alone comes from God. We will never truly understand why somethings happen. But one thing that I do know without a shadow of a doubt that is God can use ALL things for His glory. You could go to church your whole life and hear God's Word your whole life and never gain wisdom and that makes me truly sad. God did not give his word just to preachers and teachers alone, He gave his word to everyone. God did not just send Jesus to be humiliated and hung on a cross just for those that are in the church house, He sent him for EVERYONE! Until you gain wisdom, you will never understand what God is doing. It is no secret, it is written in our instruction manual. It can't fix if you don't pick it up and see what the instructions are for you. God is so desperately calling, He is using whatever means to get your attention. If you are reading this then leave me a comment about what this verse can do, will do and has done for you. If you don't understand it, then leave that also and we will dig in together and find the wisdom that God so wants each and everyone of us to have. Have a blessed day and I hope to interact with each of you and spread God's grace, mercy and most of all His LOVE!
