Fountain of LIFE
Proverbs 10:11-15 The speech of the righteous is a fountain of life, but the speech of the wicked is a cover for violence. 12 Hate stirs up disputes, but love covers all kinds of transgressions. 13 On the lips of the intelligent is found wisdom, but a stick is in store for the back of a fool. 14 Wise people hide their knowledge, but when a fool speaks, ruin is imminent. 15 The wealth of the rich is his fortified city; the ruin of the poor is their poverty.
He still speaks...
Proverbs 8:6-11 “Listen! I will say worthwhile things; when I speak, my words are right. 7 My mouth says what is true, because my lips detest evil. 8 All the words from my mouth are righteous; nothing false or crooked is in them. 9 They are all clear to those who understand and straightforward to those who gain knowledge. 10 Receive my instruction, rather than silver; knowledge, rather than the finest gold. 11 For wisdom is better than pearls; nothing you want can compare wit
Proverbs 3:19-20 Adonai by wisdom founded the earth, by understanding he established the heavens, 20 by his knowledge the deep [springs] burst open and the dew condenses from the sky. What a treasure to find these verses today. Adonai founded the earth by WISDOM. That means He THOUGHT THROUGH what He was doing when He created it! Most wise people give thought to their next step. If Adonai showed wisdom, that means He CARES and WANTED to found the earth! He used UNDERSTANDING
Fear of Adonai
Proverbs 1:7-9 7 The fear of Adonai is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline. 8 My son, heed the discipline of your father, and do not abandon the teaching of your mother; 9 they will be a garland to grace your head, a medal of honor for your neck. God created us to LOVE Him, and part of that love means to fear Him. We have all heard that it doesn't mean to be afraid of Him, it is being in awe of Him. It is stopping a recognizing that HE created
Knowledge of Adonai's Glory...
Verses about the GLORY of God are always encouraging. So often we focus on the worries of the day and they drag us down. I love the Psalms which does bring hope and lifts me up, but sometimes we must just focus on the GLORY of God. Today’s verse does just that. Habakkuk 2:14 For the earth will be as full of the knowledge of Adonai’s glory as water covering the sea. (CJB) This book of the Bible is little known and often overlooked. What a hidden gem to find this tucked away. I
O the depth of the riches...
A special verse filled with more promises! I love how the Word is filled with so many gems of Truth. Romans 11:33 O the depth of the riches and the wisdom and knowledge of God! How inscrutable are his judgments! How unsearchable are his ways! (CJB) The Passion Translation says it this way (with lots of passion…) Who could ever wrap their minds around the riches of God, the depth of his wisdom, and the marvel of his perfect knowledge? Who could ever explain the wonder of his d
The fear of Adonai...
Today our family read from Proverbs. Chapter 9 has secrets to find wisdom. Proverbs 9:10 The fear of Adonai is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of holy ones is understanding. (CJB) Most of us would like to have wisdom. We know that the Word also tells us in James that if we lack wisdom we can ask God, Who gives generously to all… Wisdom, according to this verse, comes with the FEAR of Adonai. Our hope is in gaining knowledge of HIM. We gain understanding the closer we a
