Wisdom Speaks

Over the past few days I have been writing from the topic of treasuring Jesus and His words. Through reading Proverbs 7-9 I have noticed a reoccurring word, wisdom. Wisdom seems to come as a result of having Jesus and His word as your treasure. According to 1 Cor 1:30 Jesus is to us the wisdom from God. As Christ and His word are the center of our lives we can know wisdom. Wisdom is a person. Go through and read Proverbs 8 and 9 and place Jesus in the place of the word wisdom. Prov 8:1 Does not Jesus cry out. We know in Mt 11:30 Jesus cried out come unto me all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. We know that he cried from the hill of Calvary "it is finished". (Vs 2) He takes his stand on top of the high hill beside the way where the paths meet. Jesus talked about two paths in the scriptures (Mt 7:14), the broad way that leads to death and the narrow way that leads to life everlasting. He stands at the point of the two paths choose Him and His ways and you choose the narrow way that leads to everlasting life. Reject Him and His ways and you choose the broad way that leads to death. (Vs 3) Jesus is at the door knocking (Rev 3:20), to him that opens that door and knock, if any man hears my voice and opens that door Jesus will come in and commune with him. Wow that is powerful. But we must hear His voice and open the door. Our responsibility is to hear His voice and open the door by following and obeying His voice. Fellowship with Jesus awaits all who will hear his voice and obey Him. (Vs 6-9) Listen, for I will speak excellent things and from the opening of my lips will come right things; For my mouth will speak truth; Wickedness is an abomination to my lips all the words of My mouth are with righteousness nothing crooked are perverse is in them, they are plain to him who understands and right to those who find knowledge. What a wonderfact that wisdom speaks and what He speaks is always truth never crooked or perverse only righteous. So will be the man who follows the words of wisdom. He will be a man of righteousness, truth and no perverse way. Lord may we be filled with wisdom by being filled with the wisdom from above, Jesus Christ. Amen!!!!
