Proverbs 3:16 (VOICE) She holds the secret of a long life in one hand and riches and fame in her other hand.
Beloved, My ways are not your ways, nor My thoughts your thoughts. So what is true wisdom often challenges your personal feelings and understanding. It means foregoing your own sense of wisdom in favor of that which is divinely given.
When you yield to true wisdom it is life-giving and a blessing to all. It cannot always be made sense of, and yet the truth of its sweetness is demonstrated in its fruit. So embrace divine wisdom, and walk in the abundant blessings it brings.
Proverbs 3:13-20 (VOICE) How fortunate are those who discover Lady Wisdom and those who understand her ways! For her worth is greater than the most expensive prize you could win. Her profit is greater than the finest thing you could buy. No gem is more precious than she is— your most extravagant desire doesn’t come close to her. She holds the secret of a long life in one hand and riches and fame in her other hand. Her ways are pleasant; all of her pathways are peaceful. She is like a tree that produces a satisfied life for anyone who can wrap their arms around her; happiness waits for any who hold her tightly. It was by wisdom that the Eternal fashioned the earth and by understanding that He designed the heavens. Through His knowledge, the deep was divided into seas and sky, and the clouds understood when to let down the morning dew.
