Hello, Mighty Woman of God! I'm back. I missed you ladies. Haven't posted in a minute. So here we go. I follow God's instructions as best I can and He has lead me to go through the book of Proverbs with you. Another thing that you all will appreciate is that, the blogs won't be nearly as long.
One of the things that the Book of Proverbs represents is Wisdom. As you read through the Proverbs notice that the word SHE is used when speaking of Wisdom. Also it is said that SHE (Wisdom) was with God before the beginning of the Earth and Man. God is Wisdom.
(PROVERBS 1), The proverbs of Solomon son of David, king of Israel: For attaining wisdom and discipline; for understanding words of insight; for acquiring a discipline and prudent life, doing what is right and just and fair; for giving prudence to the simple, knowledge and discretion to the young, let the wise listen an add to their learning, and let the discerning get guidance, for understanding proverbs and parables, the sayings and riddles of the wise. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline.
Well, God is doing a new thing in me and the ministry. Meditate on those versus, so important for us to gain wisdom and knowledge not only when it comes to the things of God but in our everyday life. One of the things that I learned years ago was to always pray before I read my bible. Asking the Holy Spirit to give me wisdom, knowledge, understanding and a fresh revelation of the scriptures. Without the wisdom and understanding of the scriptures there can be no growth.
There are a lot of parables in the four Gospels in the bible. Sometimes I have to read the parable more than once to understand exactly what God is trying to tell me through that particular parable. Even though the parable was written over 2,000 years ago, the Word of the Lord through that parable has meaning for us today. Praying that the Holy Spirit gives you understanding will help you to grasp and hold on to what the Lord is saying to you.
If we have Godly wisdom in our everyday life and listen and allow God to discipline us and correct us, we will without a doubt keep moving forward in our spiritual journey. I used to wonder why God wants us to fear Him, but I think I figured it out. If we don't fear the Lord, we would probably be undisciplined in every area of our lives. No gaining of knowledge because we don't even fear or respect God. Without respecting God, we won't respect ourselves or others. Fools despise wisdom and discipline; the jails are full of fools.
Heavenly Father, I pray that You forgive me for my sins. Forgive me Lord for the things that I have in my mind or have said that doesn't glorify You. Lord I am praying that I receive wisdom as I read through my bible. Lead me Father to each scripture that You want me to read on today. I pray that your Spirit leads me and gives me understanding as to how to apply your Word in my life on today. I love you Father God, and I thank you for life. In Jesus name Amen!
