Sword Fighting Class – A Favorite Truth

Its truly supernatural.  We are memorizing Proverbs 3 together and, as we faithfully review these scriptures everyday, God is writing them on our minds.  Such a great way to experience him working in our lives!

 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.Proverbs 2 -13-3-11

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 sight of God and man.”

Today we add some very popular verses that you may have already memorized at one time.  One of the blessings I am experiencing by memorizing whole chapters is really seeing the context of verses like this – what God is saying in the verses before it and after it:

Trust in the Lord with all of your might and lean not on your own undertanding.  In all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight.”

This is such an awesome verse.  So much wisdom!

Trust with all my might!  What does that look like in my life?

Don’t make decisions based just on what I already know, my own wisdom and knowledge – what does that look like?

Always acknowledge him – I think that answers my last question 🙂

If I always check in with God, trusting him in all situations, constantly keeping my eyes on what he has told me and where he is leading me, I will be walking down the right path.

Thank you for how clear your directions are in your Word, Abba Father.

Audio file of my memorization of Proverbs 3 so far:

Where Is It?

‘Where does wisdom come from?’ Job asked. (28:12 )

It is hidden from our eyes.Sept 15 2015 where is it

God alone knows where wisdom is.  God established the wind and measured the waters.  He made a decree for the rain and a path for the thunderstorm.  He looked at wisdom, tested it and confirmed it.

And he says to us today, “The fear of the Lord – that is wisdom, and to shun evil is understanding.” (vs 28 ).

How many times do we hear this exact same truth in the Bible?

Those of us who have memorized Proverbs 2 repeat this several times a day. “For the Lord gives wisdom, from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.” (Proverbs 2:6)

In Proverbs 3 we are told, ” Do not be wise in your own eyes, fear the Lord and shun evil.”(vs 7).

Over and over we hear these same words.

God is telling us where to find true wisdom.

How to get it.

Who gives it.

Only from you, Abba Father.
