Proverbs 3: 13-15
“Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.
For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold.
She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her.”
That is quite a statement. Are you Blessed?
I know I am. I may be fighting a battle this moment, but I know in the end, (if I stay the coarse), I will be Victorious. My Victory is through Jesus. (1 Corinthians 15:57)
I am Fortunate and to be Envied, I know in whom I put my trust. It is no longer, anyone or anything but Jesus. He is with me, (in the form of His Holy Spirit), I have accepted His Yoke, and am now, resting and walking with and in His Power. (Matthew 11:29)
We need to take the next step also. We must seek God’s face to get Godly Wisdom and Understanding from His Word, and our life experiences. What should we be learning from our trials and tribulations?
We must learn to look to and trust, our Heavenly Father to give us the opportunity to walk in His love, in our dealings with others.
The Merchandise of Godly Wisdom. The Lord promises we will gain from this Wisdom. How?
He will put Wisdom in our mouths that our enemies will not be able to refute. (Luke 21:15; Acts 6:10)
When we accept Christ as Lord and Savior, He is our Wisdom. (1 Corinthians 9:4,24,30) Wisdom is the Spirit of God, given to us to build the Tabernacle for the Lord, within ourselves and others. (Luke 1:17 Colossians 1:28 Exodus 28:3; 31:3,6)
Wisdom is a Spirit, we either accept the Wisdom from God, (Jesus), or the Wisdom of the world. As we seek to bring others into the Kingdom, we must not faint, (Galatians 6:9) but continue in the Lord’s work.
A question I heard the other dsy, haunts me. ‘How many are in heaven, because of you?’
I fear there are very few. I might have driven folks the other way, by my attitude and actions.
Lord forgive me, and fill me with Your Holy Spirit of Wisdom, that I might be a profittable builder of Your Kingdom. Amen

We all have the relationship we want with God. I desire a more intimate one.
