Let the wise hear and increase in learning, and one who understands obtain guidance, to understand a proverb and saying, the words of the wise and their riddles Proverbs 1:56
Doesn’t life seem like a riddle sometimes. Indeed it really is. Proverbs was written by Solomon. Now I don’t know much about this guy however he was a fool making the people who thought they were wise realize they were fools.
In the meantime if helping others GOD was making him wise. I don’t anything about him other than he became one of the wisest men on the earth. He is also the writer of Ecclesiastes. That’s a whole other blog.
Here in Proverbs one he is talking about instructions understanding, knowledge and the fear of the Lord.
He address being good to your mother and father he talks about the reason one should listen to the riddles about unjust gain in life. How you and I both have ambushed our lives. That when we dispose the council of the Lord how can you expect him to do for you what you don’t do for him.
I remember when my Journey first started out with Proverbs. This book was my worst enemy and in the end my best friend.
It pointed out all my character defects as well as my strengths which at the beginning of learning I was a definite fool.
I didn’t like my parents I had one two or probably a billion addictions. I fought like crazy the devil was definitely controlling my tongue. My thought were everything but pretty. I was a miserable person.
I heard time and time again over these last 5 years 5 months as of today read a Chapter in Proverbs a day. Well stubborn me I tend to want to always do things my way. Can never take advice from anyone in person let alone GOD. I mean com on I thought I knew it all.
Not to mention all the walls I had built around me and my heart because of all the hurt I caused myself, and to others. I was truly I walking time bomb for years.
With that being said GOD took me by the hand and said Melissa go here and go there in the Bible not always Proverbs. However a lot of them.
On my journey of Proverbs is this wonderful life of how we think.
Are you struggling with addictions, anger, jealousy, arrogance, really any kind of behavior that is obtained by everyone in this world.
I encourage you to one pray and ask GOD to show you your character defects every morning. Spend time with GOD. He will show you. He will teach you.
Be open minded to what he’s telling you. I promise over time your thinking changes, it gets better because you get better and better
He said; I gave you eyes to see and ears to hear.
Fear of the Lord is of great understanding knowledge and true wisdom.
Stay blessed my friends!
