Proverbs 2:6 Wisdom is a Gift #223
I can’t get enough of Proverbs lately. Over the past week I haven’t been able to move past the first few chapters because it’s been so good. One of the verses that I can’t stop reading is Proverbs 2:6 which says, “Wisdom is a gift from a generous God, and every word he speaks is full of revelation and becomes a fountain of understanding within you.”
Does anyone else want more wisdom in their life? I love how this verse says that “wisdom is a gift from a generous God”. You have a very generous Father and I think if you took the time to recognize every gift from him, you would be completely in awe. As if he hasn’t done enough or given enough he continues to desire to give his children gifts and one of the amazing gifts he gives is wisdom.
Every word that comes out of your Father’s mouth is “full of revelation.” Meaning that when he speaks something he is revealing more of himself to you. And good news! God is always speaking! He’s not just speaking through his Logos word, which is the Word of God, but he’s always speaking fresh Rhema words too, which are words to his people. And every time he opens his mouth, whether it’s the Logos or Rhema, it’s full of revelation.
What happens when you gain wisdom from the Father? It’s like a “fountain of understanding within you.” I don’t know about you, but I want to access all the wisdom he has for me. And the good news is I can, because it’s right in front of me.
If you are someone who is thinking “I don’t know what path to take” or “I don’t know what decision to make,” know that God will reveal it to you through his Word. Open up the Bible and allow the words to speak to you. The are full of life and revelation and as you read them you will feel like you are standing under a fountain. You don’t have to question anymore; his Word is a fountain of life and will reveal to you every step you need to take and every decision you need to make.
