GODLY WISDOM by Nina Keegan

WISDOM!!!! Godly wisdom!  Now more than ever we need wisdom!!! We need truth  so we can recognize evil and live righteously before God and man! 

  Proverbs 2:1-10

"Moral Benefits of Wisdom" 

v1-My son, if you accept my words
    and store up my commands within you,

v-2 turning your ear to wisdom
    and applying your heart to understanding—

v-3 indeed, if you call out for insight
    and cry aloud for understanding,

v-4 and if you look for it as for silver
    and search for it as for hidden treasure,

v-5 then you will understand the fear of the Lord
    and find the knowledge of God.

v-6 For the Lord gives wisdom;
    from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.

v-7 He holds success in store for the upright,
    he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless,

v-8 for he guards the course of the just
    and protects the way of his faithful ones.

v-9 Then you will understand what is right and just
    and fair—every good path.

v-10 For wisdom will enter your heart,
    and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul.

The heart is the place for the commandments and the Word of God to be hidden. If we receive into our being the wisdom of God and apply it to our heart we will do the things that are right in God's sight.

If we would spend even half the time learning the Word of God as we spend searching for worldly wealth, we would find the treasures of God. Knowledge has to be accumulated by learning. Wisdom is a gift from God. As we uncover the secrets of the Bible, We will have reverent fear of God and be filled with His knowledge.

Wisdom identifies those who are true believers, who seek to know, love, and obey God and to live righteously. These covenant keepers alone can know wisdom and experience God’s protection.

God is the source of all wisdom. His kind of wisdom brings peace. You see, we are to be wise unto salvation. If we are righteous it is because we have taken on the righteousness of Christ and that is the greatest wisdom we can acquire. The Christian actually takes on the mind of Christ.

1 Corinthians 2:16 "For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ."

The Lord is our Protector,
if we walk uprightly in our salvation day by day.

The Bible says wisdom is more precious than rubies (Proverbs 8:11) and gold (Proverbs 16:16). So are we willing to pay? Talk is cheap. Wisdom costs. Wisdom is only words if not applied. Words become wisdom when they are internalized and the heart changes. And that is a sacrifice only a few are prepared to make. Don't just read the WORD, do what it says... be wise in Christ! 

If you desire wisdom as the principal thing (Proverbs 4:7), or require wisdom for a specific situation you face, these verses will set your feet on the path of wisdom:

But to those called by God to salvation, both Jews and Gentiles, Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God." - 1 Corinthians 1:24

"Wisdom is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her." - Proverbs 3:15

"Don't turn your back on wisdom, for she will protect you. Love her, and she will guard you." - Proverbs 4:6

"If you prize wisdom, she will make you great. Embrace her, and she will honor you." - Proverbs 4:8

God bless you all with powerful wisdom and insight!! Please share!❤️
