“I [Wisdom] walk in the way of the righteous, in the midst of the paths of justice, that I may cause those who love me to inherit true riches, and that I might fill their treasuries.
The Lord formed and brought me [Wisdom] forth at the beginning of His way, before His acts of old.
I [Wisdom] was inaugurated and ordained from everlasting, from the beginning, before ever the earth existed. [John 1:1; 1 Cor. 1:24.]
When there were no deeps, I was brought forth, when there were no fountains laden with water.
Before the mountains were settled, before the hills I was brought forth;[Job 15:7,8.]
While as yet He had not made land, or the fields, or the first of the dust of the earth.
When He prepared the heavens, I [Wisdom] was there; when He drew a circle upon the face of the deep and stretched out the firmament over it, When He made firm the skies above, when He established the fountains of the deep, When He gave to the sea it’s limit and His decree that the waters should not transgress [across the boundaries set by] His command, when He appointed the foundations of the earth;[Job 38:10,11; Psalm 104:6-9; Jer. 5:22.]
Then I [Wisdom] was beside Him as a master and director of the work; and I was daily His delight, rejoicing before Him always, [John 1:2,18; Matt. 3:17.]
Rejoicing in His inhabited earth and delighting in the sons of men.”(Proverbs 8:20-31).
Who is Wisdom?
Oh, that we might know Wisdom.
Read these words to a child ask what they might think. They hear and receive. Children trust and believe.
That we would be as a child and hear Wisdom speak:
“Now therefore listen to me, O you sons ; for blessed – happy, fortunate [ to be envied]- are those who keep my ways.”[Psalms 118:1,2; 128:1,2; Luke 11:28.]
“Hear instruction and be wise, and do not refuse or neglect it.”
“Blessed – happy, fortunate [ to be envied]- is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.”
” For whoever finds me [Wisdom]finds life, and shall draw forth and obtain favor of the Lord.” ( Proverbs 7:32-35, Amplified).
Oh, How I desire to seek and to find and to know and be filled with Wisdom! Let’s ‘be as a child’ and hear and receive and above all believe in Wisdom Who is none other than Jesus Christ the Son of God. May God fill us with His Spirit to know Wisdom today!
