While it may seem a bit supernatural, God actually loves and protects his own. In this passage, Solomon simply lays it out. God gives wisdom, knowledge and understanding! He holds success in store for the upright. For those that follow him he is their protection and shield. He runs interference and guides his followers. God enlightens those that will simply seek him out.
With this amazing insight, why would anyone ignore Gods love and leadership. The wisest man in the world would wonder that himself. Yet, he was one of the worst offenders. Most who follow Christ, like Solomon, know the truth—yet, we still act independently of God’s leadership and make decisions that put us at risk and makes our lives miserable. The great news is that we can always turn back and follow God. As we do, he provides the knowledge and protection to continue the journey with confidence and peace.
Help me Lord to do so with Love.
God Bless You
For the Lord gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding. 7 He holds success in store for the upright, he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless, 8 for He guards the course of the just and protects the way of His faithful ones.
9 Then you will understand what is right and just and fair—every good path. 10 For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul. 11 Discretion will protect you, and understanding will guard you.
