Hold onto God's Wisdom (Proverbs 3:21-26)

My child, hold on to wisdom,… Don't let them out of your sight. (Proverbs 3:21)

What would we do when we have pressure of worry? What would you do when your life turns to disaster? What would you do when you face with your financial problem? What would you do if your spouse or your sweetheart decides to cheat on you by having another mate? Are you going to make the things worse or just giving up?

The world does teach us to make the choice to create more problems in our lives rather than holding onto the faith and wisdom of God. If I decide to break my relationship with my woman because I found a greater woman in my life, then I just have made crisis, for instance, and the problem is getting worse because I cheated on her. She has two choices to resolve this problem. She could walk away from me or could hold on to the faith of God and wait for God to heel this problem. What if this was your situation or mine?

God says, "My child, hold on to wisdom,… Don't let them out of your sight." (Proverbs 3:21.) He knows you will go through difficulties. He knows the problems that you have will go pass away as sweep through wind. It's not just holding on to wisdom, but has a good sense. Read Proverbs 3:21 again and discover that God wants us to have a good sense to the problem. Make the solutions, as God wants to be. That is having a great victory over the darkness.

Paul said, "You know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize. All those who compete in the games use self-control so they can win a crown. That crown is an earthly thing that lasts only a short time, but our crown will never be destroyed. So I do not run without a goal. I fight like a boxer who is hitting something-not just the air. I treat my body hard and make it my slave so I myself will not be disqualified after I have preached to the others."(I Corinthians 9:24-27.)

Then if you hold onto God's wisdom and faith, you will have a good and long lasting life. "They will give you life and beauty like a necklace around your neck. Then you will go your way in safety, and you will not get hurt." (Proverbs 3:22-23.) We know that most of our daily lives are hacked days. We might be ready and go for our work by between 6 and 8 a.m. Then we might have a lot of papers work in our offices. The papers work may need to be done by 5 p.m. of the day. In the meantime, we might have something else to do and papers work; and we are getting really dizzy with all the assignments. What else to do when we would have heavy load of the office work?

The answer: Hold onto God's wisdom and faith. Trust Him. "Trust the LORD with all your heart, and don't depend on your understanding." (Proverbs 3:5.) We can trust God to take away our heavy barriers. Jesus said, "Come to me, all of you who are tired and have heavy loads, and I will give you rest." (Matthew 11:28.) You can trust your money, but it can't help you to rest rather than creating more issues. You can trust your religion system, but it might give you more religious rules rather than comfort. But you can trust and follow Jesus to give you the rest from all of your worries. He is the only one who can give you the answer to your needs.

"God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son so that whoever believes in him may not be lost, but have eternal life." (John 3:16.) In this context, Jesus isn't talking about the world in this planet, but is talking about His kingdom (the New Jerusalem and the new earth). Are you stepping out your faith and trust God's wisdom? "When you lie down, you won't be afraid; when you lie down, you will sleep in peace. You won't be afraid of sudden trouble; you won't fear the ruin that comes to the wicked, because the LORD will keep you safe. He will keep you from being trapped." (Proverbs 3:24-26.)

"Lord, whoever read this message and want to turn to You fully, I pray that You touch them and may Your Word to touch their lives. I don't know what kind of troubles they are facing. But You know their sufferings and what they desired. I pray that this message may flow through their hearts. I prayed in Your name, amen."
