20 My son, keep thy father’s commandment, and forsake not the law of thy mother: 21 Bind them continually upon thine heart, and tie them about thy neck. 22 When thou goest, it shall lead thee; when thou sleepest, it shall keep thee; and when thou awakest, it shall talk with thee. 23 For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life:

Heavenly Fathers Instructions for Safety

The wisdom of God is without doubt the greatest asset for living we can possibly have in life. There is nothing that can guide our life better than godly wisdom, as it will bring us within God’s Will for us, and living within God’s Will for us is where life is the sweetest. It is hard to get there at times because self, sin, and fear of sacrifice keep us locked into a me first, self-reliance, my will mindset, but during those times in life when we are in that godly sweet spot, the center of His Will, life is sweet, blessed, and peaceful.

Verse twenty-two tells us that godly wisdom is meant to lead us in all our affairs of life, no matter where we go, what we are doing, where we live, what life stage we are in, day in and day out it is meant to lead us. It illuminates our path so we will know what choices to make (v.23).

We are even meant to embrace the corrections of God that God brings to our life through godly wisdom. Believe it or not “reproofs” if listened to help shape our life to be something better, more satisfying, a life of greater dignity. Reproof can come in many forms as the Hebrew definition of the word show us. “Reproof” in the Hebrew language means, “chastisement; fig. (by words) correction, refutation, proof (even in defence):— argument, × chastened, correction, reasoning, rebuke, reproof, × be (often) reproved.” Better to embrace the reproof of God than to live as less than we could be.

Allow God wisdom to work its godly magic in your life. Allow His reproof to shape your character. Trust that godly wisdom will keep you safe. Find that sweet spot of God’s Will and abide there.

Spiritual/Political Disclaimer:

This blog will not be for the faint of heart or the easily offended. It will not be in any way politically correct. It will make every effort to share the truth in love, [Ephesians 4:11-16], to a decaying and dying society and church. I share what I share not to hurt, harm, or offend any person[s] or group; I do it because Christ’s Standard and Truth is not being represented by enough of His Followers, and I do it out of love. I love enough to tell His Truth.

Ephesians 4:11-16 NKJV

11And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, 12for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, 13till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; 14that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, 15but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ— 16from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.
