“Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer; You shall cry, and He will say, ‘Here I am.’ “If you take away the yoke from your midst, The pointing of the finger, and speaking wickedness,”
Isaiah 58:9 
 
Have you ever “cried” out to God for help or healing?  Good, but make sure your relationship with Him has transformed you from sinner to saint.  It makes for much more effective prayer. (Read James 5:16)

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.”
Proverbs 9:10 
 
“Fear” has different meanings.  In scripture, the word “Fear” can mean “phobia.”  The word here in Proverbs is “yiurh” which means “reverence;” I’m not “afraid” of God, I love and are revere Him, knowing the difference makes all the difference!

“The righteousness of Your testimonies is everlasting; Give me understanding, and I shall live.”
Psalm 119:144 
 
According to Webster’s Dictionary, testimony means “evidence or proof provided by the existence or appearance of something.”  God has given us “proof” of who He is by the very universe He has created.  Everything in nature is a “testimony” to, not only His ability, but His character of love!

“Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ”
Philippians 3:8 
 
Imagine what your life would be without Jesus in it.  Our life consists not only of the present, but the eternal; without Christ, we are bereft of hope.  With Him, nothing else matters!

“in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.”
Colossians 2:3  
 
In Whom?  In Christ.  He is our source; both wisdom and true knowledge comes only from God.  Christ is more than a savior, He is our eternal source!

“Discretion will preserve you; Understanding will keep you,”
Proverbs 2:11
 
An old saying “Discretion is the better part of valor.”  Meaning it’s better to use wisdom then might.  True character looks for the most beneficial outcome for all. Only in wisdom and understanding do we really become effective in our walk.

“that you also aspire to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you”
1 Thessalonians 4:11
 
Living in a world of noise and clamor takes discipline and commitment.  Following the Word of God rather than the voice of the world takes great courage and determination, but must be done.  “For here we have no continuing city, but we seek one to come.”  Hebrews 13:14

7 “A time to tear, And a time to sew; A time to keep silence, And a time to speak; A time to love, And a time to hate; A time of war, And a time of peace.”
Ecclesiastes 3:7-8 
 
If we are given all the opportunity in life to thrive, it is up to us to truly decide how our lives impact the world around us and whether our time on earth was worth the investment God has made in us!

4 “A time to weep, And a time to laugh; A time to mourn, And a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, And a time to gather stones; A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing; A time to gain, And a time to lose; A time to keep, And a time to throw away;”
Ecclesiastes 3:4-6 
 
The give and pull of life!  Solomon rightly observed that, no matter who you are; rich or poor, slave or free; God gives to all a “measure of time” in which to live out, either His purpose or ours and only we can decide which.
