Have you had your Joy Juice today? IF we receive Jesus into our heart, THEN we have access to HIS special flavors of wisdom & joy!
Proverbs 2:1-6 explains how to be filled with Godly wisdom:
“My son, if you accept my words and store up my commands with you, turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding, and if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding, and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge of God. For the LORD gives wisdom, and from his mouth comes knowledge and understanding.”
Though wisdom is a gift from God, these verses remind us that we have a committed role in acquiring it. Did you hear the “ifs” in that passage?
- IF we accept His words & store up His commands
- IF we call out for insight
- IF we cry aloud for understanding
- IF we look for wisdom as we were searching for silver or hidden treasure….
· THEN we will understand and receive wisdom.
Yes, wisdom is a gift from God—but only those who earnestly seek it, will receive it. My Bible footnote reminds us that the “pathway to wisdom is strenuous. When we are on the path, we discover that true wisdom is God’s and that he will guide us and reward our sincere and persistent search.”
Let’s persevere down the Pathway to Wisdom and Joy!
