Proverbs 1:20-23 “Wisdom cries aloud in the street, in the markets she raises her voice; at the head of the noisy streets she cries out; at the entrance of the city gates she speaks: ‘How long, O simple ones, will you love being simple? How long will scoffers delight in their scoffing and fools hate knowledge? If you turn at my reproof, behold, I will pour out my spirit to you; I will make my words known to you.'”

Wisdom is available! Wisdom is there for the taking! You just have to listen! And the more you listen, the wiser you’ll become!

Our journey with wisdom starts with belief in Jesus Christ:

1 Corinthians 1:23-24 “but we preach about a crucified Christ, a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles. But to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God.”

We then have the desire to turn to the Word of God to gain wisdom:

Psalm 19:7 “The law of the LORD is perfect and preserves one’s life. The rules set down by the LORD are reliable and impart wisdom to the inexperienced.”

And God gives us His Spirit to help us to understand wisdom!

1 Corinthians 2:12 “Now we have not received the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things that are freely given to us by God.”

In other words, if we turn at His reproof, He pours out His Spirit to us and makes His words known to us!

  1. I’m really liking your blog emails, Pastor. Devices are where it’s at 😊 Made it through Revelation with you. (I’m a late subscriber, but a happy one) Looking forward to a year of Proverb’s instruction.
