Proverbs 28 1-28-19

Our own wisdom is incomplete, if not erroneous. We must seek God’s wisdom through prayer (go to the Source) and His word.

26 He who trusts in himself is a fool, but he who walks in wisdom is kept safe. Pr 28:26

Jesus IS “wisdom of/from God (1 Corinthians 1:24).” He speaks to us by His Spirit, whom He sent to us upon our salvation (John 14:26, 2 Cor. 1:21-22). He has also given us His written words for confirmation and enlightenment. He even speaks to us through the Scriptures (Heb. 4:12) because tbey are His words and He is our living Savior. We must be careful, though, as we read to ask Him to interpret and expound upon what we are reading because we have filters by which we view everything: our home life, our experiences, what we have been taught (right or wrong, good or bad), even our culture. We MUST read to hear. It is part of our communication with Him and is essential to our Christian growth.

He even speaks to us through others. Here again, we must understand that we have our filters and the person to which we are listening has his filters, as well, so we absolutely must go to the LORD for confirmation and interpretation. EVERYTHING points us back to Him. It’s all about HIM.

Let’s make Him an integral part of our lives today. Consult Him on everything. From experience (my filter), I can say that we will find Him interesting, pleasant, and safe (we can tell Him anything and we won’t have to worry about condemnation, misinterpretation or Him blabbing to someone else!).
