Following Wisdom’s Call Brings Blessings

In review of Proverbs 8:32 it says, “Now therefore, listen to me, my children, for blessed are those who keep my ways.”

Bottom Line:
Listen and follow wisdoms advice. If you do so, things will go well.

What this means to me:
Wisdom calls out and wants me to listen and follow her advice. If I do so, I will live a happy and prosperous life.

Today’s verse comes from Proverbs 8. This chapter is all about listening as Wisdom calls out. I am to hear and understanding it. She only raises her voice as I listen. She cries aloud, “You simple people, use good judgment, show some understanding. Listen for I have important things to tell you. Everything I say is right for I speak the truth and detest every kind of deception. There is nothing devious or crooked with my advice. Choose my instruction rather than silver and knowledge rather than pure Gold. Wisdom is far more valuable than rubies.” Therefor nothing I desire can ever compare with her. So I am told to listen to it and to follow wisdom's way, for it is joyful.

This morning I realize that I qualify for the favor of God, by my obedience to His Word. The Bible is filled with propositional revelations, meaning that if I do this, God will do that. There is no limit to what I can do with God on my side. As long I I’m walking in His plan for my life, God will grant me favor.

However, I’m reminded that regardless of my failures (past, present and future), I can still receive divine blessings when I follow the commands God has clearly given me in His Word. It is just that simple!
