Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
Proverbs 7:10 - Fear of the LORD is the foundation of wisdom. Knowledge of the Holy One results in good judgment.
Read - Proverbs 7-9
Solomon parallel’s wisdom and worldliness with two women. He shows a man without wisdom being led into an illicit affair with a woman of the world. He was naive, weak and without common sense. This path would lead to his death. He then shows the voice of wisdom calling for attention. Here, eternal wisdom desires to find a home in the heart and mind of man. The question is “Will we head wisdom or fall headlong into the trap of the world?” My prayer is that we find and stay with wisdom and thereby find the favor of God (8:35).
Lord, I choose Your wisdom over the world, over silver, gold or jewels!
The beginning of Chapter 7 links the Wisdom of God to The Word of God and Deuteronomy 6.
Wisdom can prevent suffering. The wisdom of knowing and following Christ as Lord and Savior prevents us from eternal suffering caused by the marring of sin. The wisdom of being led by and walking in The Holy Spirit (being morphed) prevent us from the daily misleading attacks of the enemy. God lavishes gifts upon us and His very wisdom is one of them. Will you walk in it?
