The WISdom CORner
And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.
Life's is a journey fully rewarding when we take the road less traveled. A new path can be challenging and intimidating. Risks come with rewards and consequences. Who can know the right path to take?
Lots of children look at food and decide right away not to eat what does not appear pleasing to the eyes. As a young child, my Aunt Cora tried serving me several of her dishes. She was a wonderful cook but I was not about to try some of the food she cooked.
Aunt Cora would have her house smelling like a million dollar restaurant. My Aunt spent many hours in the kitchen and presented her food like a Master-Chef. Every meal she brought to the table was displayed in fine china.
As the lids were lifted from her master creations the smell and aroma gave off a soothing musical tune to my nostrils. The food always looked wonderful.
One day Aunt Cora brought a dish to the table that looked really weird. I asked her what was in the dish and she said "Squirrels". I immediately got up from the table and shouted, "I am not eating that and I do not eat squirrels".
Aunt Cora's Immediate response was a roaring laughter. Then she would say, "How do you know you don't eat this dish, have you ever tried it before?
Aunt Cora told me I did not have the right to say, "I don't eat something if I never tried it". She explained you must have a proven truth for your foundational statement. She had me to understand that in order for me to legally say I don't eat a dish I must try it first, then determine if I should ever eat it again.
My Aunt Cora died many years ago but I recognized her smart saying was something called "Wisdom". Aunt Cora tasted of the Lord's Wisdom and shared it with me.
Psalm 34:8 O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
The Wisdom of God
The beginning of man's fears has not truly arisen yet. In man's mind he is only a token of My image. Oh if man could see how much he is living beneath his priviledge.
I have given man the Oxford authority he has prestige beyond comparison to any other creature or being I created.
The enemy has so tried to mask My people with wolf clothing so they do not recognize who they really are in My likeness. Even one little tiny stain does not disqualify who I made My children-My Sheep to reflect.
My children you are become the expressed image of your Father in Heaven. He expressed how He wanted you to look though the shed blood of Jesus as spotless little Lambs.
Come out from the pack of wolves. I did not create any ugly ducklings, this is a fable.
Promotion is what you do not what you say. Little significance is given to an ideal if it is not acted upon. The multitude of society focuses on what looks and sounds good whether it is truth or not. Sadly, many people respond to lies and give less attention to truth. The truth is: Luke 4:4 And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.
True promotion comes through the "Wisdom of God." Is every successful person a Christian? NO. Living by God's Word guarantees stability and sustainable life. The temptations to cheat or not follow the rules are always present. But the faces of our Angels are always before God giving Him an accurate account of all the goings and comings of men.
The next time you are seeking a promotion try this scripture: James 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
