Choose God's Wisdom
Scripture - Proverbs 3:1-6
Wisdom Bestows Well-Being
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.[
This knowledge from God that is applied brings success.
The regiment of regular searches for wisdom from God’s Word will put wisdom not just in your mind, but in your heart.
Protection happens in two ways when you gain God’s wisdom—physical and mental.
It’s one thing to be mindful of God’s Word,
it’s a whole other thing be in love with God’s Word.
God’s commands can only be kept in your heart if you have a heart for the commands.
In order for me to submit my whole life to the Lord,
I have to give my whole heart to Him.
