Today we read Proverbs 4. Hope you enjoyed it!!!!!!!! I would like to share with you what the LORD showed me!
First I read that we need to pay attention to our fathers when they correct us!
1) My children, listen when your father corrects you. Pay attention and learn good judgment, 2) for I am giving you good guidance. Don’t turn away from MY instructions. (NLT)
Yesterday we talked about how we need not be upset when GOD tells us to stop doing something! Today HE is telling us that we need to pay attention when our father tells not to something. GOD gave us parents here on earth so that we can live by the law of man and the GOD will help live by HIS law!
Second thing that I read was that we get wisdom when we obey GOD and our parents!
4) My father taught me, “Take my words to heart. Follow my commands, and you will live. 5) Get wisdom; develop good judgment. Don’t forget my words or turn away from them. 6) Don’t turn your back on wisdom, for she will protect you. Love her, and she will guard you. 7) Getting wisdom is the wisest thing you can do! And whatever else you do, develop good judgment. 8) If you prize wisdom, she will make you great. Embrace her, and she will honor you. 9) She will place a lovely wreath on your head; she will present you with a beautiful crown.” (NLT)
When we fallow GOD’S commandments then we get wisdom because if we don’t do it the first time. Then the second time we can say NO and go on!
Third thing that I read was that we need to listen to what GOD says!
10) My child, listen to ME and do what I say, and you will have a long, good life. 11) I will teach you wisdom’s ways and lead you in straight paths. 12) When you walk, you won’t be held back; when you run, you won’t stumble. 13) Take hold of MY instructions; don’t let them go. Guard them, for they are the key to life. (NLT)
Again we will get wisdom when we follow GOD’S commandments!
Forth thing that I saw was that we need not be around people who do wicked things!
14) Don’t do as the wicked do, and don’t follow the path of evildoers. 15) Don’t even think about it; don’t go that way. Turn away and keep moving. 16) For evil people can’t sleep until they’ve done their evil deed for the day. They can’t rest until they’ve caused someone to stumble. (NLT)
When we hang out with sinners, then we might just do what they are doing! I from experience that you can’t say I’m a strong Christian and this won’t effect me. WRONG!!!!!!!!!!! It does effect you and soon it will drag you down. I’m NOT says that you don’t minister to the sinners, I’m just say don’t hang out with them!
Fifth thing that I was that we need to keep all of GOD’S commandments!
20)My child, pay attention to what I say. Listen carefully to MY words. 21) Don’t lose sight of them. Let them penetrate deep into your heart, 22) for they bring life to those who find them, and healing to their whole body. 23) Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life. 24) Avoid all perverse talk; stay away from corrupt speech. 25) Look straight ahead, and fix your eyes on what lies before you. 26) Mark out a straight path for your feet; stay on the safe path. 27) Don’t get sidetracked; keep your feet from following evil. (NLT)
We need to listen and pay close attention to what GOD says!!!!!!!!! The WORD of GOD is life those who find and health the their whole body!!!!! I want to walk in healing everyday of my life!!!!!!! don’t you?? We also need to watch what we say! Life and death are int he power of the tongue! We need to speak GOD’S WORD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
