Read Proverbs 7
The Unlocking of Wisdom From Above
Ponder Verse 2
1) The Protection That Is Received from Gods Word –
“Keep my commandments …and live”
Contrary to carnal thought, the Lord really wants us to enjoy a vibrant, fulfilling and rewarding life.
Also contrary to carnal thought, the key to obtaining such a blessed life (God says) is by “keeping my commandments” or by living ones life in accordance to the instructions of Gods Word.
The abundant life (overflowing with excess) promised by the Lord will always be sabotaged by self-will and self-gratification.
To get the most out of life, live it Gods way!
2) The Passion That Is Required For Gods Word –
“Keep … my law as the apple of thine eye.”
That idiom means to cherish something with the greatest regard.
In other words, the keeping of Gods law must be fueled by a passionate love for God and His will or it will devolve into a heartless and frustrating servile duty.
A mechanical or unenthusiastic response to the Scriptures always results in a listless and lifeless walk with God.
If we supremely love the Word of God (treat it as the apple of our eye) we’ll have a greater desire and ability to live for God!
So it is vital that we Read it passionately – That we Respect it passionately – And that we Respond to it passionately.
Have A God Conscious Day!
