Wisdom to live by
Wisdom to live by
“Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding “Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honor, when thou dost embrace her.” (Proverbs 4:7-8)
This verse starts off telling us “wisdom is the principal thing” The word is more important
The Bible takes priority over anything you think you need to do. There are times when you think you have to get all this paperwork done, and you can't read the word of God. Here is another famous excuse for not getting in the Bible.
"I have to go clean my house." Our Heavenly Father is there to help us. He is asking, please allow me to help you. I am a witness of this very thing.
One word from God is all you need!
The Bible says
“seek first the kingdom of God and all these things shall be added unto you” (Mathew 6:33)
We don’t have to add materialistic things to ourselves. Allow the word of God to work in you just like a seed is working in a womb of a woman. Renew your mind, set aside time for the word of God, and let the blessing overtake you.
The scripture states with all thy getting get understanding. We as believers have the ability to get the wisdom from the word and the ability to understand what the word is saying to us and how to apply it to our every day lives.
The word of God is the most important thing in your life. Proverbs 4:7 say that wisdom is the principal thing. God’s word is God’s wisdom. The whole universe was created by that word. You were created by that word. In this parable, Jesus talked about the process by which men are born again.
This is the process by which men receive the saving message of the gospel. But since the word of God covers more subjects than salvation, such as healing, prosperity and protection etc., we can understand that the same process occurs when we hear the word of the Kingdom in any area. Anytime the word of God is sown into your heart, Satan uses five forms of pressure to stop that word from becoming a revelation to you and bearing fruit in your life.
Lets look at those five pressures closely. The five pressures of the enemy are common and never change. Satan can never change his methods. We are not ignorant of his devices 2 Corinthians 2:11. If he ever changed his methods we would need new scriptures to teach us. No, we have him figured out because of God’s word. The five pressures that he uses are:
2. Affliction (tribulation - pressure)
3. The cares of this world (survival instinct)
4. The deceitfulness of riches (trusting in money)
5. The lust of other things (putting other desires before the word)
The purpose of the first two pressures is to get you offended and out of the word – by and by they are offended. The last three however are subtler because they come to get the word out of you. You will notice that Jesus said the cares of this world the deceitfulness of riches and the lust of other things ENTERING IN choke the word and IT becomes unfruitful. The last three pressures ENTER IN.
If Satan can’t get you out of the word, he will attempt to get the word out of you. I like to call this choking of the word a “spiritual miscarriage.” Remember this. When you are in Gods word and it enters your heart, you have to protect that word like a woman who has conceived. Be careful what you let into your heart with that word. Protect your eye gate, your ear gate, and your mouth gate. That’s how things enter your heart.
How serious are you about receiving revelation from heaven. Hopefully you are serious enough to protect the word that is growing in you. Get prepared because revelation is coming your way and revelation changes everything.
God Bless You,
