Hello out there!
Thank you for taking the time to “stop by!”
For those of you following along with me on this journey to read the Bible in a year…
I have not been so diligent in creating visuals for awhile! It is “quite the reading schedule” and some weeks I am doing well to simply “listen” to the daily assigned Chapters! I am so very thankful to the creators of the READ SCRIPTURE APP for the AMAZING highlight videos they produce!!! They really help me stay focused ❤
Currently, we are reading in Proverbs.
In the video this week, Wisdom is described as a skillful artisan who excels at her craft to create the “good life” (intended for us ) We read that the key to the “good life” (full of fruits & hope for our future) begins with the fear (reverence/Righteous respect) of the Lord.
Check it out below!
Are these videos amazing or what?!
In order for us to “digest” all that Proverbs has to offer, we must start with 2 things:
1. A deep understanding of WHO God is and WHO we are NOT….fear begins when we recognize our Creator’s Authority & Sovereignty.
2. and this comes from the revelation of the Holy Spirit as we surrender our will.
Wisdom isn’t just having a knowledge of truth, it is applying it…living it. It is moving forward in FAITH to act on that truth through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Through Solomon, we learned that in order for God to bless us with wisdom, we must have a righteous motivation.
Solomon desired wisdom because he had the motivation to better love and serve God’s people. This is the heart of our Lord! (See 1 Kings 3) God was pleased with Solomon’s heart and blessed him with more wisdom than anyone on the earth!
Chokmah is the Hebrew word for Wisdom.
Wisdom (from the verb chakam – to be wise) is the ability to judge correctly and to follow the best course of action, based on knowledge and understanding. Wisdom is the ability to see something from God’s viewpoint. Wisdom is “God’s character in the many practical affairs of life.” -from Precept Austin
