Study of Proverbs 2

October 2, 2011
Wow again this whole chapter speaks volumes to me.
Many seek after money and a good paying job or other possessions like it the only thing that will bring the happiness and joy.. Some go to school for many years to recieve knowledge to fu…ll their need to make a good living..

Yet there is only one thing that will give us a good living not as the world defines it but as Our Lord God does and that is His wisdom and Understanding. For it will be what keeps us on the path of righteousness and we will never seek to leave or divert on to those crooked paths..  We will walk always in uprightness and in integrity if we continually seek after God’s wisdom as some seek after gold and silver..

One thing is God wisdom is incorruptible yet man treasures will rot and fade away..

When I was a child I use to love to search for treasure of course back then it was shiny lost marbles or pretty stones (still do when I feel childlike)  It was such a wondrous time to search and seek these little treasures so should it be with God Wisdom for us..

It is a treasure hunt that one that we should continually be on.. And when we truly desire to find it all we have to do is call upon the Lord and cry out to Him and He will give it to us for He promises all the Good treasures with in Heaven His Wisdom and understanding..

When we recieve His wonderful Beautiful Council and Wisdom we recieve discernment as to what is Right and wrong.. Which paths are paths to destruction and which one it the Path of the Upright..  We can never be steered wrong if we continually seek His Wisdom which is more precious then any possession, jewels or gems of this earth..  For His Wisdom is eternal and has been around since before the foundation of the world and is free to anyone who truly desire to find it..

I hope this makes sense for this is what came to my heart today.. God bless you all and may we continue to seek His wisdom and Understanding as treasure from Heaven our Gift from God for through His Understanding we will always be on the path of the upright..  ♥

Proverbs 2

New King James Version (NKJV)

 

The Value of Wisdom

1   My son, if you receive my words,

And treasure my commands within you,

2  So that you incline your ear to wisdom,

And apply your heart to understanding;

3  Yes, if you cry out for discernment,

And lift up your voice for understanding,

4  If you seek her as silver,

And search for her as for hidden treasures;

5  Then you will understand the fear of the LORD,

And find the knowledge of God.

6  For the LORD gives wisdom;

From His mouth come knowledge and understanding;

7 He stores up sound wisdom for the upright;

He is a shield to those who walk uprightly;

8  He guards the paths of justice,

And preserves the way of His saints.

9  Then you will understand righteousness and justice,

Equity and every good path.

10  When wisdom enters your heart,

And knowledge is pleasant to your soul,

11   Discretion will preserve you;

Understanding will keep you,

12  To deliver you from the way of evil,

From the man who speaks perverse things,

13  From those who leave the paths of uprightness

To walk in the ways of darkness;

14  Who rejoice in doing evil,

And delight in the perversity of the wicked;

15   Whose ways are crooked,

And who are devious in their paths;

16  To deliver you from the immoral woman,

From the seductress who flatters with her words,

17  Who forsakes the companion of her youth,

And forgets the covenant of her God.

18  For her house leads down to death,

And her paths to the dead;

19  None who go to her return,

Nor do they regain the paths of life—

20  So you may walk in the way of goodness,

And keep to the paths of righteousness.

21  For the upright will dwell in the land,

And the blameless will remain in it;

22  But the wicked will be cut off from the earth,

And the unfaithful will be uprooted from it.
