“Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him; Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons of men. Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed are they that keep my ways. Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not. Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors. For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the LORD. But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.”
As Wisdom begins with a fear of the Lord and then grows when we walk in His ways, blessings are sure to follow. God promises us in His Word that He will bless those that follow Him.
“Blessed is every one that feareth the LORD; that walketh in his ways.”
Walking in the Ways of the Lord includes hearing the Word of the Lord. Are you watching daily and waiting patiently while seeking Him in the pages of the Scriptures? You are sure to find Him.
When we find Wisdom, we find Life.
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.”
We cannot fear the Lord until we first hear His Word, and believe on Him that sent us Wisdom and Life.
