Sword Fighting Class – Pleasant peace

What an awesome thing God is doing as we memorize his word!  There is no way I could do this if God wasn’t helping me.Proverbs 2 -13-3-11

My child, do not forget my teachings but keep my commands in your heart for they will prolong your life many years and bring you prosperity. Let love and faithfulness never leave you, bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win favor and a good name in the site of God and man. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes, fear the Lord and shun evil. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones.

Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the first fruit of all your crops. Then your barns will be filled to overflowing and your vats will brim over with new wine. My child, do not despise the Lords discipline and do no resent his rebuke because the Lord disciplines those he loves, as a father, the daughter he delights in.Proverbs 3 to verse 25

Blessed is the man who finds wisdom, who gains understanding. For she is more profitable than silver and yields better returns than gold. She is more precious than rubies, nothing you desire compares with her.

This section describing wisdom as a woman is really interesting to memorize.   It is easy to picture her in my mind.  Here’s the next verses:

‘Long life is in her right hand, in her left hand are riches and honor. Her ways are pleasant ways and all of her paths are peace.’

Long life…

riches and honor as defined by God…..

pleasant ways…..

peace.

All very good things that I want in my life.

And I know where I can get wisdom.

From God.

Thank you, Abba Father.
