Doth not wisdom cry? And understanding put forth her voice? She stands in the top of high places, by the way in the places of the paths. She cries at the gates, at the entry of the city, at the coming in at the doors. Unto ye simple, understand wisdom: and, ye fools, be ye of an understanding heart.
My week was very mentally draining and stressful. By the week’s end, my spirit became very humble and reflective! I encountered all types of temptation and attacks from the enemy and had to repent of my sin. My entertaining that which was unholy and unrighteous, led me to be awaken by God at 2:00 am for Him to give me insight on what was going on with me and how to move past it. Our God is so wonderful, even when I openly, and knowing knew I was wrong, HIS grace and mercy was given to me. He allowed WISDOM to show her beautiful face to me as I slept and she brought me back to my right mind as I listened to her voice. She took me through the course of the events of my week which led up to my thoughts of entertaining my sin. My conclusion after I was visited by my “sister WISDOM and my “Relative – INSIGHT, was – “Nothing in this temporary world is worth losing my relationship with my God and going to hell for moments of indulging!” Nothing can separate me from the love of God. (Romans 8:38-39). I said LORD I repent and I moved on to write this blog.
Can I be clairvoyant with you? Did you know we know when we want to sin (consciously and unconsciously)? The bible even tells us this in James 1:14 (AMP) “But each one is tempted when he is dragged away, enticed and baited [to commit sin] by his own [worldly] desire (lust, passion)”. Most of us know or should know that it is the devil who draws us to sin and it is up to us to yield to it.
Now, since, I was slipping (not staying in the word this week) due to my stressful week, I was an easy prey the devil’s scheme. Well, that is what he thought anyway. Because everything works together for my good… (Romans 8:28). Although I was entertaining the sin, I had a visit by the Holy Spirit, which was great for my spiritual growth. So, my ordeal did work for my good! Even more, my bible tells me in the book of James1:1 “to count it all joy when you fall into divers(various) temptations, knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. It also says, in James 1:5 if any of you lack WISDOM, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally and upbraideth (without reproach).”
WISDOM Guards against Immorality (PROVERBS 7: 1-4)
My son, keep my words and store up my commands within you. 2 Keep my commands and you will live; guard my teachings as the apple of your eye. 3 Bind them on your fingers; write them on the tablet of your heart. 4 Say to wisdom, “You are my sister,” and to insight, “You are my relative.”
So what is the Big Takes from this blog today?
1- Meditate on PROVERBS 1-5. Wisdom and insight, will come to you when you are encountering situations and after you encounter a situation. It is up to you to make the right decision.
2- The CRY of her voice should not be overlooked. Ask God to give you UNDERSTANDING of His word, and we will give it to you.
3- Wisdom is warnings and discernment of what will happen if you go down that wrong path.
4- By choosing to commit the sin that it reveals and by overlooking the caution and warning signs it brings to your spirit, would be a huge mistake.
5- If you do not feel as though you have God’s Wisdom, ASK Him! He told you in His word in (James 1:5), if you lack wisdom, he will give it to you.
I love you all with the Love of Jesus! Please share and like my page with another sister/brother…
