Many of us are familiar with Proverbs 3:5-6; but let’s look at more of that chapter as well. “My son do not forget my teaching, But let your heart keep my commandments; For length of days and years of life [worth living] And tranquility and prosperity [the wholeness of life’s blessings] they will add to you. Do not let mercy and kindness and truth leave you [instead let those qualities define you]; Bind them [securely] around your neck, Write them on the tablet of your heart. So find favor and high esteem in the sight of God and man. Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart And do not rely on your own understanding. In all your ways know and acknowledge and recognize Him, And He will make your paths straight and smooth [removing obstacles that block your way]. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the Lord [with reverent awe and obedience] and turn [entirely] away from evil. It will be health to your body [your marrow, your nerves, your sinews, your muscles-all your inner parts]…” Those are verses 1-8a in the Amplified version.
In the culture we live in, what was considered conventional wisdom, common sense and the like are not thus anymore. Our carnal mind as the Word says in Romans 8:7 is in direct conflict with/an enemy of God Himself. Therefore, we must be careful to use all of the tools God has provided to us. We need godly scientists, teachers, philosophers, dare I say theologians, therapists and restauranteurs to name a few areas of focus. God gave us our brains and logic; but if we solely rely on such, we will miss the supernatural. God is doing a new thing. He tells us that and asks if we are perceiving such in Isaiah 43:19.
I hope today you will dig deeper into what God is doing, hear what He is saying and respond in the Spirit.
