Revelation and Wisdom

I spent some of my morning seeking the Lord for wisdom and revelation. I thought these verses tied in well: Proverbs 2:1My son, if you receive my words,And treasure my commands within you,2 So that you incline your ear to wisdom,And apply your heart to understanding;3 Yes, if you cry out for discernment,And lift up your voice for understanding,4 If you […]

Proverbs 1:8 & 9 “My son, hear the instruction of thy father and forsake not the law of thy mother: For they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains around thy neck.” First let’s look at this in the spiritual. This is telling us as the children of God that if […]

All Covered with Nettles

Proverbs 24 30 I went by the field of the lazy man, And by the vineyard of the man devoid of understanding; 31 And there it was, all overgrown with thorns; Its surface was covered with nettles; Its stone wall was broken down. 32 When I saw it, I considered it well; I looked on […]

I am rich in knowledge.

Proverbs 24 3 Through wisdom a house is built, And by understanding it is established; 4 By knowledge the rooms are filled With all precious and pleasant riches. Wisdom is what I need. Abundance is not just material things or money to buy necessities. It is also knowledge and understanding so we can read and […]

Riches Fly Away

Proverbs 23 4 Do not overwork to be rich; Because of your own understanding, cease! 5 Will you set your eyes on that which is not? For riches certainly make themselves wings; They fly away like an eagle toward heaven. Very interesting scripture. I take it to mean that we should not work ourselves day […]

Proverbs 19 14 Houses and riches are an inheritance from fathers, But a prudent wife is from the Lord. Prudent: acting with or showing care and thought for the future. A prudent wife is making wise decision for the future. Proverbs 19 15 Laziness casts one into a deep sleep, And an idle person will […]
