Don’t boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring Proverbs 27:1
This Proverb especially rings true to my thinking all the time. When it came to me a lot over these last 5 years 5 months and 27 days of today it makes me think about the things I say.
What I wish for and what I want and say are two different things. What I wish for is what is held in my heart. That’s for GOD to make come true. I found over the years that talking about it only delays what could actually happen. Boasting about what you know to be true as I did in the first couple years of this Spiritual Journey didn’t get me anything but heart break.
When I say heart break it was for a few hours then GOD would bring me back and say where is your faith. Your journey is just beginning relax.
What he was telling me is that I had so much to learn about Wisdom. Wisdom doesn’t come free by any means. To gain true pure wisdom is hard and daily work in the mind, noticing the change that needs to be done in Character and the way we act, and let’s not forget our thinking.
So with that said don’t boast about what rather you know it to be true of not. Have faith that whatever it is that your boasting about that GOD will bring it to you. Or if you already have what you want boast how GOD provided it for you.
Somewhere in the Bible probably another proverb, that if you boast of anything let it be of GOD.
Let another praise you, and not your own mouth; a stranger, and not your own lips. Proverbs 27:2
This Proverb taught me that everything comes from GOD. It didn’t make sense to me at first. When we brag about what we have we are giving ourselves credit and the credit that is to GOD for giving you the things you have.
If you do something good for someone let that person say thank you and leave it at that. Don’t go say I did XYZ for this person expecting praise for really honestly doing what GOD would do for the fellow neighbor. Again this is another one that taught me to have faith, and that everything comes from him. And he will praise you by listening to this Proverb. It’s changing your character to be of the character to GOD. And it is part of the 10 Commandments. It’s Commandment 1 you shall love the lord GOD with all your heart and all your soul.
Be wise, my son, and make my heart glad, that I may answer him who reproaches me. Proverbs 27:11
The prudent sees danger and hides himself, but the simple go on and suffer for it. Proverbs 27:12
I can relate to this one as of right now. My life seems to be sometimes I feel in danger. Then GOD says your protected. I often find myself hiding or isolating. I do this because of feeling like I’m in danger. Yet I don’t know if I’m in danger because I don’t always obey GOD, or if it’s because of my faith, or if it’s because of my relationship with GOD or a combination of all things.
Reading that Proverb I can also relate to being simple. Having an attitude if I really don’t care what other people think. The relationship I have with GOD is one that you can have too. So I can just keep my faith and be simple and suffer.
This is a very simple Proverb yet so difficult. The process of change it’s hard. Different perspectives are welcome to all thoughts. For sure. I feel like no matter what I would do there would be someone out there trying to gain on me. That’s ok. GOD is in control.
As in water face reflects face, so the heart of man reflects man. Proverbs 27:19
This one is simple to and often brings me to thought about what I think about myself. The self talk and bs that I tell myself is bs. That’s the reflection of the face looking in the mirror. I honestly don’t do that to often. However the 2nd part of this Proverb is my heart in which is full of Love. Yeah sometimes I can be very selfish. That to is a part of my relationship with GOD with my mental Status. That will seem very complicated to some and not for others when explained later. This is a part of the mind that is crazy. More to come.
Ask yourself when you look in the mirror what do you see. I can tell you I see someone that is fighting everyday to keep sane. Fighting to keep the voices from taking over my mind. Praying to GOD please don’t turn me crazy. Please GOD whoever who is doing witch graft to stop. I pray everyday that I’m not so space and can fight whatever it is that a hold of me. And it’s working for the most part but some of it is my actions of what I choose to put in my body.
Maybe someone out there can relate to what I’m going through mentally and maybe not because it’s my personal relationship with GOC. I don’t know. All I’m saying is when I look in the mirror in which I don’t do to often. Like look at yourself in the mirror. Is what I see is just someone who is trying hard to overcome these voices, having decernment on top of Being backwards, and I think the worst is the gas lightening. That’s what I see. How am I going to fix it. How can I fix it? Anyone relate?
Know well the Condition of your flocks, and give attention to your herds, fir riches do not last forever; and does a crown endure to all generations. Proverbs 27:23-24
Who are you around to be paying attention to and who should have special attention too. Those who want to harm you are the ones that don’t need your attention or energy of asking why. Those that are there for you are the ones that need special attention and everything else will fall into place. It’s the wiser you get that you are killing that curse of past generations. The crown could live forever under a legacy or something you’ve done to make a mark in peoples life. Princess Diana, Martin Luther Kind, Micky Mantle to name a few. Ever High Heftner and he was truly a prostitute really.
These are how reading Proverbs help me with new thinking. It puts different ways of thinking on my mind to become like minded with GOD.
When the grass is gone and the new growth appears and the vegetation of the mountain is gathered, the lambs will provide your clothing, and the goats the price of the field. There will be plenty of Goats milk for your food, for the food of your household and maintenance for your girls. Proverbs 27:25-27
It’s a change it’s a brand new way of thinking. To learn that all things come from GOD is key to changing the way you think to become one minded with him.
Much Love My Extraordinary Friends.
