Musings on… Proverbs 8

Standard

www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=proverbs+8&version=ESV

Passage is too long to post here, but I noticed a few things the writer is saying about wisdom here:

Wisdom is calling, actually raising her voice. Hear it!

From everywhere her is calling, she calls out to all, the children of men, the simple ones, the fools.

From this  I assume everyone can hear she calling.

What comes from her mouth is right, true, noble, UTTER TRUTH, straight and nothing crooked or twisted in her words.

Instruction >silver

Knowledge>choice gold

Wisdom > jewels

Wisdom dwells with prudence, knowledge and discretion. Hence if we heed wisdom, we too will dwell there.

Wisdom has counsel, sound wisdom and kings, rulers and princes rule by her.

I could go on and on, but go and read for yourself.

Wisdom is where it’s at. find it, heed it, embrace it and love it.

Wisdom was at the beginning and will prevail until the end.

“The Lord possessed me at the beginning of his work,
    the first of his acts of old.
23 Ages ago I was set up,
    at the first, before the beginning of the earth.
24 When there were no depths I was brought forth,
    when there were no springs abounding with water.
25 Before the mountains had been shaped,
    before the hills, I was brought forth,
26 before he had made the earth with its fields,
    or the first of the dust of the world.
27 When he established the heavens, I was there;
    when he drew a circle on the face of the deep,
28 when he made firm the skies above,
    when he established the fountains of the deep,
29 when he assigned to the sea its limit,
    so that the waters might not transgress his command,
when he marked out the foundations of the earth,
30     then I was beside him, like a master workman,
and I was daily his delight,
    rejoicing before him always,
31 rejoicing in his inhabited world
    and delighting in the children of man.

Prayer
Thank you God our Father for giving us every good and perfect gift from above; Jesus Christ.
Your wonders and miracles are too numerous to count… We rejoice in the word of truth you
encourage us with may we seek you day and night, not turning to the  left or to the right. 

Thank you for the forgiveness of our sins… That we would be as obedient children and forgiving toward others. Your word speaks of Wisdom-Does not wisdom cry out, your daughters will cry out to you for wisdom.   And understanding lift up her voice? Your daughters will seek your understanding… Wisdom takes her stand on the top of the high hill, beside the way, where the paths meet. 

Wisdom, She cries out by the gates, at the entry of the city, At the entrance of the doors: “ To you, O men, I call, And my voice is to the sons of men.   O you simple ones and Daughters of Most High and Holy God, will seek to understand prudence, may your daughters be of an understanding heart. 

To you we listen, for you Lord will speak of excellent things, And from the opening of your lips will come right things; For your mouth will speak truth; Wickedness is an abomination to your lips Father. 

All the words of your mouth are with righteousness; Nothing crooked or perverse is in them. Thank you Lord! They are all plain to your children who seek to understand, And right to those who find knowledge. We sing praises to you our Lord and our King. 

You withhold no good thing from those whose walk is steadfast before you.  Thank you for protecting us under the shadow of your wing.  We thank you for the precious victories you bring.  We wait and hope in your word and in your word put our trust. 

In Christ name we pray.  Amen!
