MORNINGTIME 3606by Benjamin Munsell on October 23, 2020
Happy is the man that findeth Wisdom, and the man that getteth Understanding. Proverbs 3:13. Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of Obedience unto Righteousness? But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your Fruit unto Holiness, and the end Everlasting Life. Romans 6:16,22. So what does Wisdom and Understanding look like? To ONLY Know something, and to ONLY Understand something, is a good start, but in itself, it's not enough. Again, Wisdom and Understanding by themselves aren't enough. Let's say the Lord shares something Wonderful about Himself with you under the heading of Wisdom and Understanding, now you need to Wrap it up in Obedience and Faith. If this Wonderful Thing from the Lord is only for you, you need to by faith Believe it, and by Obedience, Apply it to your Life and Live like it's a reality to you. When the Time of Testing comes, because you Believe it by Faith, no one will be able to shake this Wonderful Thing from you, even if it looks like, in the natural, "There's no way". If this thing of Wonder is for others, you have to take it from your Understanding and Obediently share it with others so they can Believe it also and Walk in it with you. The Lord has many things to say to us, for us to Understand, AND FOR US TO DO SOMETHING WITH IT. To read "Jesus Loves Me" is nice, but to take it out of the Bible AND BELIEVE IT, AND LIVE IT, now you're doing something with that Thing of Wisdom and Understanding. The Bible, the Word of God, is full of Things to take off its pages and put INTO your Life and Faith. When you read about HIM, then you get to DO something with what you've just read. Not as words left on the page, but Words Obediently carried into Life, both yours and theirs. And there are a lot of "them" looking for Wisdom and Understanding from you, Believer, as you Share these Things of Wonder with them, they'll Be Blessed.
