Proverbs 3:13 (NKJV) Happy is the man who finds wisdom, And the man who gains understanding;
The man who finds Christ is happy. For Christ is the joy in a man’s heart that cannot be stolen away by the circumstances of life. Christ is wisdom for us today. The benefit of knowing the Lord Jesus Christ far surpasses any profits a man can make from selling silver and gold. For Jesus gives us what money cannot buy. Jesus gives us life through the forgiveness of our sins by His shed blood on the cross at Calvary. Having a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ is priceless. Jesus is more precious than rubies, or diamonds or any other precious stone. Jesus is more desirable than any earthly treasure. With one hand Jesus offers long life, even eternal life, to those who accepts Him by faith. With the other, He offers spiritual riches and honor. All His ways are ways of pleasantness. Where Jesus guides us is pleasant. And all His paths are peace. Where Jesus points the way, there is peace. To those who takes hold of His free gift of Salvation, He is like a tree whose fruit is life. Those who have a personal relationship with Him are the happy ones. There is wisdom in the Word of God. But it requires study and effort and time to understand the Word of God. The Holy Spirit opens the Word of God to those who want to learn and know God. There are many golden nuggets, if you will, in the Bible. The Bible is filled with riches. And you can find them, if you are willing to make the sacrifice to study God’s Word. For studying the Word of God requires work, this is true, but the ways of the Lord Jesus Christ are the ways of pleasantness, and all HIs paths are peace. The Wisdom of God is seen in creation, in His understanding, and in His providence. In creation God founded the earth and established the heavens through Christ. In Christ all things were made. With understanding, God opened up the fountains of the great deep causing the Great Flood for which God had Noah prepare for. By providence, God lifts the water from the ocean into the clouds, then distributes it again as rain upon the earth that it may bring forth a bountiful harvest. And who is the Wisdom of God? He is the Lord Jesus Christ.
God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
