Proverbs 1:11-14 – Wisdom Keeps Pt 2

6 To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings. 7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.   Proverbs 1:6-7

Sharing my thoughts…..

To understand and know, God and his Word, is a vital key to wisdom.

Praise The Lord. He deepened my understanding to see the contrast between the two statements of the proverb. As stated in Proverbs 1:6-7.

Wisdom is staying away from unwise choices and/or people. Today’s verses are excellent examples….

Scripture reference to verse :

Verse 11

And they lay wait for their own blood; they lurk privily for their own lives.
Proverbs 1:18

Abundant blessings and have a marvelous day!

The just shall live by faith. Praise The Lord.

As always, I welcome your thoughts.

More Than Conquerors

You will meet two kinds of people in life: ones who build you up and ones who tear you down. But in the end, you’ll thank them both.
~ Author Unknown ~

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long: we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

For I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
~ Romans 8:35-39 ~

Hello friends. (smile) We are more than conquerors and nothing separates us from the love of Christ. Praise The Lord.

Things and stuff. Challenging little darlings at home or the circus. Choices. Testing. The its.

It’s temporary
It’s teaching and changing something
Its growing spiritually
It’s building inner strength

Praise The Lord for balancing out those who build us up and those who tear us down. Both makes us stronger. More than conquerors.

Knowing and thanking God, for his mercy and his grace, is a powerful reminder that we’re more than conquerors and nothing separates us from the love of Christ.

Abundant blessings, my friends, to believe and keep the faith, we are more than conquerors is wisdom.

Wisdom


Knowledge is knowing what to say. Wisdom is knowing whether or not to say.
~ Unknown Author ~

To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding; To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity; To give subtilty to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion.

A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels:  To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings.

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
~ Proverbs 1:2-7 ~

Hello friends. (smile) Hope all is well in your world and you’re keeping the faith. (wink)

I’ve been walking and crawling through stuff as my faith and prayers were tested. Thank God, all is well in my world. (smile)

Praise The Lord for his mercy and grace.

I’ve been reflecting on different and the words we speak that reinforce what we believe and create havoc with our thoughts.

Some days are not pretty. Some days are emotional. Some days bring tears. Some days are priceless. Temporary distractions, like change, can make us grow or keep us stuck.

Wisdom is knowing the difference. I’ve mentioned my love of the Book of Proverbs. It’s informative. It’s individual choices. It’s life apart from worldly opinions.

Wisdom brings with spiritual maturity.
Wisdom helps to adapt and adjustment.
Wisdom knows the power of listening.

Wisdom is the blessings of knowing change comes whether we want it or not. It’s inevitable.

To know our quirks and buttons is wisdom. To understand ourself keeps us moving forward to grow and release anything or everything.

A new day to let go. A good evening to sleep well tonight.

That’s wisdom by faith.

Blessings, my friends, as we have wisdom to let go and embrace positive changes.

Your comments or thoughts are welcome. (smile)

W is for…

The art of being wise is the art of knowing what to overlook.
~ Unknown Author ~

Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles.
~ Proverbs 21:23 ~

Trusting God is wisdom, knowing God is peace, loving God is strength, faith in God is courage.

Hello friends. (smile) Wahoo, a faithful week of new and wonderful possibilities–like completing the A to Z challenge. (grin)

Praise The Lord, the finish line is near. (smile)

The experience has been wonderful to meet and see other writers creative writing style on alphabetical topics.

Which brings me to W is for….

The power of words spoken, to ourself or about ourself, promotes self esteem and will renew the mind.

A renewed mind changes a mindset. A changed mindset brings freedom let things go.

Spiritual and emotional wholeness, along with self worth, are powerful attributes; when we know who we are in Christ. Praise The Lord.

It comes down to speaking better choices. Praying the solution, by faith, versus the problem.

We are God’s children, blessed, fearfully and wonderfully made, and highly favoured.

Blessings, my friends, to just keep the faith and wisdom to know who we are in Christ.

Enjoy your day and the X to Z challenge! (smile) Wahoo, something to do!

Feel free to share your thoughts.
