043 – Trust In The Lord With All Your Heart – Proverbs 3:5-8
Sep 29 13
Ancient Jewish Wisdom
Doesn't really have much to do with I.Q. or being "smart"
Has everything to do with "orientation towards God"
Being "Wise" is less about "being" wise and more about "getting" wise
Gaining in Wisdom is merging right-thinking with right-action
It's about making Godly Choices and learning to apply God's truths to life's circumstances
Trust In The Lord With All Your Heart
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and shun evil.
This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones.
- Proverbs 3:5-8
"Fear of the LORD" - What's that?
This is a loving "reverence" that includes submission to God's Lordship and an understanding that all knowledge starts with this submission to God.
"The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge..."
"The fear of the LORD is the beginning of Wisdom..."
Compact, Practical Statements that stick in the mind.
The Proverbs are short and compact statements that help keep us oriented towards God. They are great to memorize and take with us throughout the week so that we can put them into action. Wisdom is learned over time through application and implementation. We'll make mistakes, but over time and with God's help, we can learn to make Godly choices. Remember, the highest "good" a person can achieve is to do God's will.
