Proverbs Day 8

Read Proverbs 8
God offers us His wisdom. It transcends the universe and those who live by it it are truly blessed. Listen to my paraphrase of Proverbs 8:27-31.

I was there when He made the heavens and rounded out the planet in the palm of His hands. I was there when He shaped the oceans and told them how to flow. I was right there beside Him when designed the earth, like His head engineer. He was thrilled with me and I loved Him and the world He made and the people He created.

And also verse 32:

So now listen to me children: you will be truly blessed if you live out my principles.

So many people chase an elusive happiness. But when we live by God's wisdom, we find something even better--blessedness.

Prayer
"Lord of Heaven and Earth, Creator of the universe and all that exists, help me to seek wisdom above all else and live by her principles every day and thus find blessing that goes so far beyond happiness. Amen."
