This amazing thing that Solomon asked for and it prospered Him and guided Him all the days of His life. This rare thing that no man before or since Solomon has ever been given more of. Wisdom, this rare beauty.[HOW AMAZING THAT GOD MADE HER A FEMALE, HER NAME IS WISDOM 🙂 ]
Proverbs 4:7-9… ” Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom; and in all thy getting get understanding. Exalt her, and she shall promote thee; she shall bring thee to honor when thou dost embrace her. she shall give to thine head an ornament of grace; a crown of glory shall she deliver to thee.”
Without God’s wisdom, its easy to spend our time pursuing all kinds of things that do not glorify God and definitely will not benefit us. That’s why the Bible tells us that wisdom is the principal thing. Wisdom promotes us, makes us honorable. God gave us His grace freely, wisdom enables us to continue to walk in God’s grace and ultimately present us with a crown of glory.
I want to know God more intimately every day, i want more of Him, a deeper understanding of Him. How do i do this? By pursuing His wisdom because it will give me understanding of Him, His will and His purpose for my life.
Ecclesiastes 8:1… “who is as the wise man? And who knoweth the interpretation of a thing? A man’s wisdom maketh his face to shine, and the boldness of his face shall be changed.”
Wisdom is an amazing thing!!!! When I embrace wisdom and walk in the wisdom of God, God’s glory shines from my face. Wisdom physically manifests on us when we embrace her.
The light and warmth of His presence just emanates from us to others.
Ecclesiastes 8:4… “Where the word of a king is, there is power: and who may say unto him, What doest thou?”
2 things will happen when we walk in God’s wisdom:
- God’s glory will be evident on us, it will physically manifest
- Because we know and speak the Word of God, no one will be able to question the power and authority of our words
There is no power, authority or dominion other than that God has granted. When we speak the words of King Jesus and walk in God’s wisdom, the power of the Holy Spirit and all of heaven backs us up.
God has given us His Holy Spirit and His Word to enable us to walk in His wisdom and succeed. So it is impossible to fail as believers who are armed with His Holy Spirit and His Word.
His wisdom will make our face shine, our hearts to sing and our lives to prosper in every area. With His wisdom, we can always be at the right place, at the right time, doing the right thing, and signs and wonders will follow us.
Every book in the Bible contains God’s wisdom, but Proverbs is dedicated to revealing His wisdom in every situation in life.
Since there are 31 chapters in Proverbs, i have decided to read a chapter a day, let what i read and meditate on influence my decisions. By the end of 31 days, God’s promise is that my thinking and the way i make decisions will be revolutionized. I will think as He thinks, talk as He talks. I will be conformed.
Feel free to join me on this 31 day journey.
Here’s to embracing wisdom,
You are Beautiful – Empowered – Visionary
