I’ve not really got on well with Proverbs before but today I was reading about wisdom in Proverbs 8 and the commentary really helped me to understand it in more detail. Today I was drawn in by God’s wisdom, it’s there, all around us, we just need to ask him to give it to us in any and every situation which we find ourselves in.
Proverbs 8:1 – Does not wisdom call out? Does not understanding raise her voice?
If you need wisdom ask God, listen to his instruction and be wise, do not disregard his teaching, do not be deceived by false preaching, for blessed are those who listen to God, those who wait at his doorway, for those who seek God’s wisdom find life, they receive favour from the Lord, filled with delight day after day, rejoicing in his presence, listening out for instruction, establishing God’s wisdom over their lives, they are alive, walking securely with God by their side, God’s handiwork in action, trust and obedience gaining traction, ask, seek and you will find, God’s wisdom will rise up within your mind
