Wicked men are overthrown and are no more, but the house of the righteous stands firm.
How is your house? Is it being built up or is it falling apart? Here are our building plans: [24:3-4] By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established;
 through knowledge its rooms are filled
with rare and beautiful treasures.
Wisdom-of following the Word;
Understanding– of what the Word says;
Knowledge- of what our Lord intends in His Word.
Anything that supplants Jesus’ words is an idol, a false god. For instance, in order for us to remain in His love and obedient to His Spirit, we must be in control of our faculties-sober! Anything that leads us astray in this area, whether it is alcohol, crack, marijuana, cocaine, prescription abuse or pornography, causes us to lose our control and hands us over to the enemy who will lead us down a path of debauchery (excessive indulgence in sensual pleasures; intemperance), which is NOT the way of Christ. It’s either up or down, folks.
What we we must decide-every time- is this: Do we want to please Him with our lives? If so, then we will choose to ignore our base desires (dying to self) and live for Him. Christianity 101, “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” Gal. 2:20
Let’s be about the Father’s business, y’all.
