Proverbs 3 (The Voice)

 

My son, always remember what I have taught you;
    keep my instructions dear to your heart.
If you do, they will be your guide to
    a long, healthy, prosperous life.

Stay focused; do not lose sight of mercy and truth;
    engrave them on a pendant, and hang it around your neck;
    meditate on them so they are written upon your heart.
In this way, you will win the favor of God and others,
    and they will think well of you.

Place your trust in the Eternal; rely on Him completely;
    never depend upon your own ideas and inventions.
Give Him the credit for everything you accomplish,
    and He will smooth out and straighten the road that lies ahead.
And don’t think you can decide on your own what is right and what is wrong.
    Respect the Eternal; turn and run from evil.
If you depend on Him, your body and mind will be free from the strain of a sinful life,
    will experience healing and health,
    and will be strengthened at their core.

Pay tribute to the Eternal in all of your affairs.
    Honor Him with the best of what you make.
10 That way you will prosper to the fullest
    and have plenty of food to eat and wine to drink.

11 My son, do not ignore the Eternal’s instruction
    or lose heart when He steps in to correct you;
12 Because the Eternal proves His love by caring enough to discipline you,
    just as a father does his child, his pride and joy.[a]

God knows well what He is doing. He has established rewards for living wisely: A happy, long life.

A good reputation. Guidance when you need it most. Health. Success. Even, dare we say, fatherly discipline.

These are just a few of the benefits accompanying God’s wisdom.

13 How fortunate are those who discover Lady Wisdom
    and those who understand her ways!
14 For her worth is greater than the most expensive prize you could win.
    Her profit is greater than the finest thing you could buy.
15 No gem is more precious than she is—
    your most extravagant desire doesn’t come close to her.
16 She holds the secret of a long life in one hand
    and riches and fame in her other hand.
17 Her ways are pleasant;
    all of her pathways are peaceful.
18 She is like a tree that produces a satisfied life for anyone who can wrap their arms around her;
    happiness waits for any who hold her tightly.

19 It was by wisdom that the Eternal fashioned the earth
    and by understanding that He designed the heavens.
20 Through His knowledge, the deep was divided into seas and sky,
    and the clouds understood when to let down the morning dew.

21 My son, never lose sight of God’s wisdom and knowledge:
    make decisions out of true wisdom, guard your good sense,
22 And they will be life to your soul
    and fine jewelry around your neck.
23 Then each one of your steps will land securely on your life’s journey,
    and you will not trip or fall.
24 Your mind will be clear, free from fear;
    when you lie down to rest, you will be refreshed by sweet sleep.
25 Stay calm; there is no need to be afraid of a sudden disaster
    or to worry when calamity strikes the wicked,
26 For the Eternal is always there to protect you.
    He will safeguard your each and every step.

27 Do not withhold what is good from those who deserve it;
    if it is within your power to give it, do it.
28 Do not send your neighbor away, saying, “Get back with me tomorrow.
    I can give it to you then,”
    when what he needs is already in your hand.
29 Make no plans that could result in injury to your neighbor;
    after all, he should be more secure because he lives near you.
30 Avoid fighting with anyone without good reason,
    especially when no one has hurt you;
    you have nothing to fight about.
31 Do not envy someone who profits at the expense of others
    or copy any of his tyrannical ways,
32 For crooked people are detestable to the Eternal,
    but those with integrity receive His counsel.
33 His curse lingers over the wicked and their families,
    but He forever favors residence of those who do what is right.
34 God treats the arrogant as they treat others,
    mocking the mockers, scorning the scornful,
    but He pours out His grace on the humble.[b]
35 In the end, the wise will receive honor,
    but fools will face humiliation.

  • When we keep God's instructions they will guide us through life, when we bind them to our hearts and wear them around our neck, we will live along lengthy prosperous life. They will help us to stay focused and never lose sight of what God desire for our lives. When we place all that we have accomplished into the hands of God we can never go wrong we will always come out on top, when we honor the eternal In every aspect of our lives and depend on Him completely He will teach us how to live a sin free life and we will always have plenty to eat and drink. We can't lose heart when God steps in to bring correction in our lives, it's only because he loves us and care for us deeply enough to bring chastisement and correction in our lives. Just has our natural father discipline us God loves us enough to do the same, when God does it their is great reward in doing so, our way will be made prosperous, and we will eat of the good of the land. We have to remember that it was by wisdom that good fashioned the earth, by understanding that he designed the heavens, through His knowledge the deep was decided into the sea and the sky, and the clouds understood when to let down the morning dew. God wisdom will safeguard every step we take, God wisdom teaches us to be wise and live honest trustworthy lives, not to envy those who are crooked and deceitful not desire what they have because he bring justice to them. The wise will receive honor but foolishness receives humiliation, so wisdom bring power to the lives of people who depend on God and not lean to their own agenda an understanding.

      You are correct; when we bind the word of God to our chest, write ✍ on the tablet of our heart's 💕, and wear it like a necklace. We will not only receive Divine Favor in the sight of God, men, and women nationwide. We will obtain a deposit of Kingdom Insight, from Lady Wisdom herCellf. We then begin to see 👀 Prophetically, Supernaturally, and have a deeper discernment, in the things of God, and life.
