Episode 83 - Race to the Finish Series feat. Brian Glorioso

Proverbs 8:14-18 - this passage is titled, “The Power of Wisdom”

 

““You will find true success when you find me, for I have insight into wise plans that are designed just for you. I hold in my hands living-understanding, courage, and strength. I empower kings to reign and rulers to make laws that are just. I empower princes to rise and take dominion, and generous ones to govern the earth. I will show my love to those who passionately love me. For they will search and search continually until they find me. Unending wealth and glory come to those who discover where I dwell. The riches of righteousness and a long, satisfying life will be given to them.”

 

I love this passage because it takes the pressure off of us to perform. It shows us that success comes as a result of seeking wisdom from the Lord. He imparts all that we need as we seek wisdom. This brings to mind for me the conversation between God and Solomon, where God was so pleased with Solomon that He offered that he would give King Solomon anything he desired. And Solomon’s desire was for the wisdom of the Lord to be imparted to him, so he could govern the Lord’s people well. That response from Solomon touched the Lord so much that He not only gave him wisdom, but riches beyond measure. That story of Solomon has always spoken so deeply to me - this idea of having wisdom as my first desire. And I feel like this passage in Proverbs is very likely Solomon explaining very poetically how the Lord adds everything to your efforts when the desire of your heart is seeking the wisdom of the Lord - because he experienced it.
