In our Sword Fighting Classes, we are memorizing God’s word together. God commands us over and over in his Word to store his commands in our hearts, to write his words on our minds, to never forget his teachings. We are being obedient as we review our verses daily and God does the hard part of engraving them on our minds.
With God’s help, we have memorized James 1 and Proverbs 2 so far. Isn’t that amazing! God is now pointing us to Proverbs 3….more wisdom. Let’s get started with verse 1 and 2:
How appropriate that God starts out again with his command about not forgetting his teachings. It’s really hard to forget his teaching when it’s etched on our brains. Its part of how we think, how we feel.
God tells us that his teaching will prolong our lives many years. I have been reading a lot about God’s teaching about food this last year and I believe, if we follow his guidance on this, it really will prolong our lives. Lower our blood pressure. Take us out of the danger zone for other diseases. Help our heart to be more healthy.
God promises us that his teachings will bring us prosperity. His form of prosperity is not the empty prosperity taught by the world where we never have enough…never content.
God’s prosperity comes in the form of things money can’t buy – peace, and purpose and love and completeness and more.
You are more than enough, Abba Father.
