Daily words of wisdom from Proverbs

Proverbs 24:30-32 God gives wisdom to those who take the time to consider what they see

Administrator 0 46 Article rating: 5.0

Everyone wants to be successful.  We all want life to be joyous, purposeful and fulfilling.  Unfortunately, most people never discover the secrets that lead to an abundant life. The information and the ability to apply it successfully come from God.  This proverb actually reveals the secret of acquiring wisdom!  "When I saw it, I considered it well...and received instruction".  When reading this proverb it is easy to overlook the principle of consideration. God gives us Instruction when we choose to "see" and carefully consider His word, works, and wonders.  This is why the Apostle Paul writes in Romans chapter 1 that the "invisible attributes" of God may be clearly seen and understood by the things which exist.  Our success is hidden in our willingness to see and consider that which is all around us.  Selah (means pause and think about it).

Proverbs 20:22 God provides solutions to those who pursue His way in the midst of persecution.

When evil people attack us, the natural reaction is to strike back.  We get angry and search for ways to retaliate.  Our solutions generally will make the matter worse.  This word of wisdom advises us to "wait on the Lord".  This does NOT mean that we do nothing.  Instead, we fight the urge to react irrationally and pursue wise council.  We refuse to speak emotionally because that makes it easier to do what is unproductive. The wisdom we need to deal with the issue is available to us. "Waiting" is not easy, but it is worthwhile.   God has promised to deliver us if we choose to "wait". 

Proverbs 23:12 Effort spent to understand and apply the Word of God transforms your life.

One of the great mysteries of the human condition is the depravity of man's heart.  This is why we continuously see war and misery throughout the history of mankind.  God has declared that man's heart is "deceitful and desperately wicked, and who can know it?" (Jeremiah 17:9).  Today's proverb opens the door to the solution!  Did you know that God has promised to CHANGE the hearts of those who will listen to His Word and work to understand and apply it?  Think about that for a moment.  God has promised that He will change our heart!  This promise is found in Ezekiel 36:25-27 and throughout the Bible. You may be set in your ways, but God wants to change your heart!  You may believe that you are only human and bound by human desires, but God wants to change your heart!  How does this happen?  How do you unleash this power into your life?  Proverbs 23:12 describes how to get started.

Proverbs 12:18-19. Trusting the wrong words will injure you, but words of wisdom will heal you!

Administrator 0 91 Article rating: No rating

"Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me".  That famous quotation is wrong!  Words WILL hurt you if you assign value to the wrong ones!  What words are the wrong words?  Well, when people speak, preach, sing or otherwise communicate thoughts, ideas or philosophies which are contrary to truth and God established principles of life, there is the potential for you to be harmed!  Words that we accept frame the way we think!  How we think influences what we DO and SAY.  We are warned in verse 18 that when some people speak,  it is like swords piercing our body!  In other words, words can hurt us.  Here is the good news, "But the tongue of the wise promotes health".  You can choose to fill your life with words that injure you or words that make you healthy.  If you are healthy, your family will be healthy.  If you are wounded, your family and your community will suffer.  We need to ask ourselves, what do we love to listen to?  Are we hearing words that hurt or heal us?  We must choose to pursue wisdom or we will not know when we are being injured by someone's words.!  

Proverbs 30:11-14 Pursue God, allow Him to cleanse you or be counted with those who believe that their way is right!

Administrator 0 153 Article rating: No rating

These verses from Proverbs 11 form a prophetic warning for our generation.   The Bible actually has more to say about the time in which we live than any other time period in human history!  There are two important things to note about the time in which we live: 

1)  the wickedness of mankind will spiral out of control, and

2)  many people will not recognize their need to have their heart cleansed. 

This generation is "pure in its own eyes" and is "not washed from its filthiness".  Jesus left us a directive for this hour, "be not deceived". There is only one way to escape the chaos and deception of this generation, we must pursue God and allow Him to cleanse us.  Those who refuse to do this will be counted with the crowd that believes that their way is right.  For more information on this generation, please see this Parable Power article: A World In Chaos
