Make a Choice Monday

Good Monday morning to all of you. Today we are going to choose to be wise women of God. Do you know the difference between having knowledge and having wisdom??? Wisdom requires action. Wisdom is our knowledge applied. God's word is full of riches on how to obtain wisdom. In Proverbs 2 Solomon writes how to get wisdom. It is written for those who are hungering for wisdom. When studying always look at small key words in the text. Today we are going to look at the If and Then of Proverbs 2:1-9. The if tells us our action and the then shows the result.

1 My son, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you, 2 turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding, 3 and if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding, 4 and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, 5 then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God. 6 For the Lord gives wisdom, and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. 7 He holds victory in store for the upright, he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless, 8 for he guards the course of the just and protects the way of his faithful ones. 9 Then you will understand what is right and just and fair--every good path.

If we……

Accept His words

Store up His commands

Turn our ear to wisdom

Apply our hearts to understanding

And if we……..

Call out for insight

Cry aloud for understanding

And if we……..

Look for it like silver and gold

Search for it as for hidden treasure

Then……

You will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge of God

Then…..

You will understand what is right and just and fair

If we do our part God is faithful to do His. Psalm 111:10 tells us that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and James 1:5-6 says if we ask AND if we believe we will get wisdom. Let's commit to do our part(the if) today and choose to seek wisdom and God will supply what we need(the then). Have a blessed day!
