Wisdom Will Make a Way

Today I was reading the story in Exodus of the Israelites great deliverance from Egypt.  The reading was coupled with Proverbs 1:20:33, which talks about the importance of wisdom.  Now as we know, Pharaoh did not exercise wisdom by honoring Moses’ request until after many, many losses were incurred by himself and his people.  If he had just done so by letting God’s people go sooner, so many lives would have been spared, not to mention so many other hardships not suffered.

The same is true for us today.  Wisdom calls at the doorposts of our hearts daily saying, This is the way, walk in it. Sometime we listen when Holy Spirit speaks to our heart and we are blessed in what we do. But sometimes not, and we also suffer loss because of it.  James reminds us of this in his epistle in chapter 1:25 when he says,The man who looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom and continues to do so, not forgetting what he has heard, but doing it~ he will be blessed in what he does.

God’s ways are always ways that bring freedom into our life and that includes following His laws. When we listen and obey and do what they say, we are blessed.  Yes blessed by putting wisdom into practice.  Not always easy, but always worth it. 

Pharaoh had a hard heart, and although the passages in the Exodus story do say God hardened his heart…….in our case, I think we harden our hearts ourselves. Our lack of care and concern for asking, seeking, obeying and believing can dull our senses, and thus takes we often make poor decisions leading us in wrong directions. Lord, create in us a desire to commune with You; to soak in Your Word of freedom and the grace to put the wisdom you speak to us through Your words of life into action.  Soften our hearts……gives us daily hearts of flesh and remove any hardness that develops due to our poor choices.  Thank you that you circumcise our hearts daily. Your wisdom will always make a way for us to experience life and life abundantly to cross any Red Sea.

Great wisdom comes from God, and God gives wisdom freely;

the what to do of knowing, the when to go of going.

It’s given most assuredly, without doubt and unreservedly;

through association and relation, with the God of all creation.

For this wisdom’s given generously, at no cost or currency;

no monetary value, can afford this priceless key.

Through His Son it’s given liberally, from the Spirit and the Father;

through His Word to all Believers, we can all become receivers.

Insight, all comprehension, understanding, revelation;

wisdom’s vast enormous treasures, that are limitless, without measure.

More than all your heart can fathom, or your mind can yet imagine;

just inquire, ask, seek for, it’s the key to unlock the door.

When you ask and cry aloud, wisdom can and will be found;

as you listen be attentive, for He longs to give perspective;

new understanding, answers, clarification, novel solutions, vision, explanation.

Once received, please do respond, to all He says and does convey;

instantaneously, without delay, from the start, please do obey.

Don’t just ask Him and seek for, then walk away and out the door;

leaning to your own perception, sauntering in your own direction;

allowing worldly wisdom to mislead you, woo, persuade, entice, deceive you.

But respond to oh so willingly, to all His Spirit is revealing;

and your life will bear great fruit, filled with blessing and with favor;

yielding a crop of bountiful produce, for all to experience and to savor.

Righteousness filled with tranquil hope, untold riches will unfold;

and be yours in enormous measure, a harvest of wealth for all to treasure.

 ~Wisdom

When He marked the foundations of the earth, I, wisdom, was the craftsman at His side. 

 Blessed is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my doors, waiting at my doorway.

                                                                     For whoever finds me, finds life and receives favor from the Lord.                                                                       

 Proverbs 8: 29b, 30a, 34-35
