I am so excited to write my first blog in this series based on the truth I have found in proverbs. These truths have helped me not only in business but my everyday walk raising a family, marriage, relationships and my journey through life so far. The teachings and saying found in proverbs were written by King Solomon who was one of the most richest, blessed and favored men of all time. People came from thousands of miles to hear the proverbs which are a blessing to those that read the instruction and more so to those who apply it. My intention is to share each week, verse by verse to help you understand how I have applied this wisdom to my own life and how you can too! Each week you will also be given an affirmation based on the weeks scripture to write on your heart and speak over your life.
Proverbs 1:1-6 contain the purpose and theme of why King Solomon felt led to share and how we can best benefit from the teaching.
1 The proverbs of Solomon son of David, king of Israel:
2 For gaining wisdom and instruction;
for understanding words of insight;
3 For receiving instruction in prudent behavior,
doing what is right and just and fair;
4 For giving prudence to those who are simple,
knowledge and discretion to the young—
5 Let the wise listen and add to their learning,
and let the discerning get guidance—
6 For understanding proverbs and parables,
the sayings and riddles of the wise.
OK, so I think you can see so far this will be a time of growth and stretching! It may even make you squirm, and it should! This series is going to challenge you to look at what is just and fair and you may be asked to take a stand for what is right. Its going to sift out the simple mind and replace it with the thoughts of God. You will start to see things in a totally different way; things that you may have never understood will become clear. Your days will be divinely guided as you train your ears to hear wisdom whisper. Proceed with caution, this is a life-changing series that is guaranteed to bring you blessing beyond what you could ask or imagine. There is going to be a cost. You will be shown truth and you will need to decide to stay where you are or move dangerously forward into a life worthy of a King! (Princess for all the ladies in the house). If you are ready…. Here is your affirmation for week #1.
With wisdom and understanding the path to my highest good is made clear.
