A WORD FOR YOU - WISDOM...THE PRINCIPAL THING
Every child of God has been called by God's grace and destined for a life of greatness. Sometimes, you may see yourself truly winning, but some other times, you may face challenges that may cause you to wonder about your life in Christ. If you would patiently and wholeheartedly learn and receive the Word, your life will be changed forever.
Proverbs 4:7-9 tells us: "Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honour, when thou dost embrace her. She shall give to thine head an ornament of grace: a crown of glory shall she deliver to thee."
The Bible shows us wisdom is the most important thing; therefore, He tells us "Get wisdom". Notice, the Bible doesn't say money or friends are the principal things. No, it says, "Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom." Then next verse tells us: "And with all thy getting get understanding." In other words, with everything else you get in life, get understanding and the Bible shows us why:
"Exalt her (understanding), and she shall promote you: she shall bring you to honour, when thou dost embrace her. She shall give to thine hand an ornament of grace: a crown of glory shall she deliver to thee." Understanding will promote you and bring you to honour, if you embrace her.
Proverbs 8:14-21 also tells us:
"Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength. By me kings reign, and princes decree justice. By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth. I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me. Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness. My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver. I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment: That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures."
Wisdom is talking, and He says, "Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength…and those that seek me early shall find me."
Wisdom will make you rich; give you honour, grace and fill your treasures; and if you seek wisdom early, you will find it. Give attention to the Word, for the wisdom of the God is the Word of God. (Luke 8:5-12, Matthew 13:18-19)
