Love you all, praying for you.
I just love God’s Word, it gives such practical and foundational truth that will make or break your life. It gives insight, that never runs out, and it reveals the obvious, that is not always obvious. God said, there are two kinds of wisdom. The real, and the fake, the wisdom of God, and the so-called wisdom of the world. Praying that you will follow God’s first plan to gain wisdom. Your daily Proverbs Chapter. Do you want to become wise, beyond your age, above your peers, not for pride, but effectiveness in life? Do you want in your life, prosperity, and success which starts with humility and the Fear of the LORD? Then read that chapter of Proverbs with today’s date, that God gave you for today. Every day of the month, He gave one for you. If you do PRISM, you’ll read Proverbs twelve times this year. How will that impact the wisdom you operate in? Significantly. If you do PRISM for the next ten years, you’ll have read Proverbs through one hundred and twenty times. His Word never fails to yield a result, produce a profit, it’s the most guaranteed investment ever. You can’t read Proverbs one hundred and twenty times, and it not change your character, your DNA, your destiny, and your whole family. When I was growing up, we had a telephone in the house, it was mounted on the wall, with a receiver that clicked in a box. With a long curly cord, that let you walk a good distance from the wall, even around the corner to the other room, where people couldn’t hear you. Back then, the phone rang, but you never knew who was calling. There wasn’t any caller id back then, and no cell phones. They were just coming out, only the rich could afford them, they looked like a phone at your house, but connected to a big box they could carry around like a thick triple wide briefcase. That was cutting edge technology at the time. Now caller ID lets you know exactly who’s calling. I was reading in Proverbs recently, a chapter I’ve read many times. Proverbs 8 – It says, Wisdom calls out! Does not wisdom raise her voice? From the heights along the way, where the paths meet, she takes her stand, beside the city gates (where all the people come through) she cries aloud. I’ve read this many times. But God asked me a question… Who is wisdom calling out to? So I looked. Wisdom calls out to the simple, the fool, the simpleton, those who lack knowledge and understanding. She calls out to them. She wants to give them at least the basics, at least wisdom 101, so they don’t fall off the cliff in the direction they’re heading, so they don’t end up in the ditch, crash and burn. Wisdom calls out so they turn off that road that leads to destruction. And God gently told me. “Wisdom calls out to fools, not the wise. It doesn’t have to, because the wise call out for wisdom.” And I remembered Proverbs 2 - My son, if you accept my words, and store up my commands within you, turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding, and if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding… then you will learn the fear of the LORD – the beginning of wisdom. The wise cry out for wisdom, wisdom doesn’t cry out to the wise. It doesn’t have to, they’re walking together, the wise are walking in it. Praying that you will cry out for wisdom, so wisdom doesn’t have to cry out for you. That you will be faithful in PRISM every day. Those five things you can do in God’s Word, that give you wisdom! God’s Wisdom! It will change you, you will succeed, it will bring you success, safety, prosperity, in good times, or hard times,, it will guard you from disaster, and establish you in success. God said it is available for anyone who asks (James 1:5) who cries out for it. Praying you’ll review 11 Things You Need To Know About Wisdom. and 11 Things Wise People Do. Praying you will call out for wisdom, that wisdom is what you walk in, that it will set you apart, so you discern the difference between the wisdom that comes from God, and the wisdom that comes from the world – which is not wisdom at all. Praying that you’re wise. But if you’re not, you can be. Praying that you’re wise, but if you are, you can gain more, Proverbs 1:5 - Let the wise listen, and add to their learning, let the discerning get guidance. Praying that you will call out for wisdom, and walk in it, not be a part of the crowd at the city gate, that wisdom needs to call out to. So who’s calling? Wisdom, or you?
