Are you looking to find wisdom? Did you realize that she calls out to all who seek her? That she seeks to see if anyone is interested?
Proverbs 1:20-23 (NASB)
Wisdom shouts in the street,
She lifts her voice in the square;
At the head of the noisy streets she cries out;
At the entrance of the gates in the city she utters her sayings:
“How long, O naive ones, will you love being simple-minded?
And scoffers delight themselves in scoffing
And fools hate knowledge?
“Turn to my reproof,
Behold, I will pour out my spirit on you;
I will make my words known to you.
Where does it all begin? We know that all good things come from God.
Proverbs 8:13 (NASB)
“The fear of the Lord is to hate evil;
Pride and arrogance and the evil way
And the perverted mouth, I hate.
Since wisdom calls out to the simple. Where do I find her? Where can we agree to meet?
Proverbs 8:12, 20 (NASB)
12 “I, wisdom, dwell with prudence,
And I find knowledge and discretion.
20 “I walk in the way of righteousness,
In the midst of the paths of justice
How do I find these paths? I am a mere man, a simple man. Thank you Lord Jesus because You lead me in these paths of righteousness, Amen! I am not alone, the Holy Spirit convicts me when I stray away from the paths of life, He encourages and comforts me when the price that I must pay for walking in these paths is high.
Psalm 23:3 (NASB)
He restores my soul;
He guides me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.
Our all mighty God and His perfect ways. He seeks to find one who is wise.
Psalm 89:14 (NASB)
Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne;
Lovingkindness and truth go before You.
Psalm 14:2 (NASB)
The LORD has looked down from heaven upon the sons of men To see if there are any who understand, Who seek after God.
He leads me beside still waters
He makes me lie down
He leads me in paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake
Wisdom transverses in the paths of righteousness and justice
His kingdom is founded on two pillars, righteousness and justice
Ancient ways tested and tried
Only in this path will my soul find rest
My savior called it the narrow road
That only few travel
The rest buy into the lies of the freedom
Promised in the wider roads
“You are free here!” The world promises . ” There are many benefits if you just comply…”.
Yet the road that seems right to man leads to destruction
but His yoke is easy
I choose life
I choose You my Lord Jesus
I will walk into the paths that You lead me in
Paths of righteousness and justice
