Love you all, praying for you,
PT: His WordI just love God’s Word. It gives reminders. And they are always timely, and always valuable. Some people don’t like them, they don’t like to be reminded. It’s pride. Others welcome the repetition. Repetition forms habit, and habit forms character. And character produces legacy. I just love God’s Word – it is timely reminders – if you spend time in it. God gave me a side note reminder in my spirit today. Work not done in a timely manner, doesn’t matter. Cleaning the house before your guests arrive or after your guests leave? It’s an hour’s work either way. But if you don’t do it before – by reason of “I’ll just have to clean up after,” is like the fool in Proverbs who does not plant by reason of the cold, then at harvest he looks and finds nothing. Your guests don’t get blessed by your cleanup afterward, they get blessed by seeing a home that reflects it’s owner (the LORD, Jesus) when they walk in. Why clean the house and wash the dishes before the guests arrive when you’ll just have more dishes to wash after they leave? Because first impressions are lasting impressions, and if you represent Jesus (who was excellent at everything he did, because He was humbly obedient to His Father in everything He did) then the things you’ve been entrusted to steward, (house, room, car, bicycle whatever He’s entrusted you with) – reflect Him. And they reflect you. Diligent – is not just effort, it’s timing. Praying that you will be not only hard working, but discerning. God’s blessing follows diligence, in what He’s called you to do. Here’s another great reminder. Proverbs 16:16 – How much better to get wisdom than gold, to choose understanding rather than silver. God is reminding us... Wisdom is supreme, not money. So get some! Get wisdom and money will follow. And when you gain wisdom, money won’t be lost, it will be given, sown, invested, and what you sow in obedience, is sown in God’s kingdom and it will always yield a return. Wisdom is the right use of knowledge. So to walk in wisdom you must first obtain knowledge, not the knowledge of man which is foolishness, but the knowledge of God. Discerning what information is included in knowledge, and what is not…, and then using true knowledge aright. Will you get wiser today? Will you grow in wisdom? Have you even thought about it? What if you grew in wisdom today? How? #1 – Your Proverbs chapter for today. PRISM I: Insight from the WORD – God’s book of wisdom for you. God has something just waiting in His Word – it never produces nothing, always something… just what you need. #2 – Obey the wisdom you know. The first thing God tells you to do, do it. Don’t wait. The quicker you obey the more wisdom can take root in you. Knowing something to do, and not doing it, is not wisdom, it’s falling short. That’s why the quicker your obedience turnaround, the more wisdom God can entrust you with. Proverbs 10:8 – the wise in heart receive commands, they accept what the LORD tells them and do it immediately – they are obeyers. Praying that you will grow wiser today. That you will seek what God says, seek to grow in wisdom, that you’ll receive what He tells you with a quick response. Praying that your tongue will heal – that’s what the wise do, that your tongue will speak wisdom, always encouraging others to obey the LORD and everything He puts in their heart to do. Praying that everything you do and pursue today – is wisdom working.
