Following Instructions To The Letter
The dictionary explains wisdom as having good judgement, understanding, comprehension and intelligence. It also explains wise as being perceptive, intelligent, and knowledgeable. It is written in Psalm 111:10 it says The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, all who follow his precepts have good understanding. To him belongs eternal praise.
Now Psalm 32:6 it says Therefore let everyone who is godly pray to you while you may be found; surely when the mighty waters rise, they will not reach him. You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance. I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you. Do not be like the horse or the mule, which have no understanding but must be controlled by bit and bridle or they will not come to you. Many are the woes of the wicked, but the Lord's unfailing love surrounds the man who trusts in him.
Proverbs 1:8 says The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline. Look at Proverbs 4:1 it says Listen, my sons, to a father's instruction; pay attention and gain understanding. I give you sound learning, so do not forsake my teaching. Now look at verse 6 it says Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you. Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom Though it cost all you have, get understanding. Now look at verse 13 it says Hold on to instruction, do not let it go; guard it well, for it is your life. At verse 20 it says My son, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to a man's whole body.
In Proverbs 8:10 it says Choose my instructions instead of silver, knowledge rather that choice gold, for wisdom is more precious than rubies and nothing you desires can compare with her. I wisdom, dwell together with prudence; I possess knowledge and discretion. To fear the Lord is to hate evil; I hate pride and arrogance, evil behavior and perverse speech. Counsel and sound judgment are mine; I have understanding and power. At verse 32 it says Now then, my sons, listen to me; blessed are those who keep my ways. Listen to my instruction and be wise; do not ignore it. Blessed is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my doors, waiting at my doorway. For whoever finds me finds life and receives favor from the Lord.
Look at Proverbs 16:3 it says Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed. The Lord works out everything for his own ends-even the wicked for a day of disaster. At verse 6 it says Through love and faithfulness sin is atoned for; through the fear of the Lord he makes even his enemies live at peace with him. Verse 9 says In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps. Verse 19 says Better to be lowly in spirit and among the oppressed that to share plunder with the proud. Whoever gives heed to instruction prospers, and blessed is he who trust in the Lord. The wise in heart are called discerning, and pleasant words promote instruction. Understanding is a fountain of life to those who have it, but folly brings punishment to fools. A wise man's heart guides his mouth, and his lips promote instruction. Pleasant words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death. Verse 33 says The lot is cast into the lap, but its every decision is from the Lord.
Proverbs 23:4 says Do not wear yourself out to get rich; have the wisdom to show restraint. Verse 12 says Apply your heart to instruction and your ears to words of knowledge. Verse 23 says Buy the truth and do not sell it; get wisdom, discipline and understanding.
Now in the book of 1Corinthians 14:26 it says What then shall we say, brothers? When you come together, everyone has a hymn, or a word of instruction, a revelation, a tongue or an interpretation. All of these must be done for the strengthening of the church.
In the book of Ephesians 6:4 it says Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in training and instructions of the Lord. In the book of 1Thessalonians 4:7 it gives us an instruction to please God. It says For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life. Therefore, he who reject this instruction does not reject man but God, who gives you his Holy Spirit.
Now in the book of 2Thessalonians 3:11 it says We hear that some among you are idle. They are not busy; they are busybodies. Such people command and urge in the Lord Jesus Christ to settle down and earn the bread they eat. And as for you brothers, never tire of doing what is right. If anyone does not obey our instructions in this letter, take special note of him. Do not associate with him, in order that he may feel ashamed. Yet do not regard him as an enemy, but warn him as a brother.
1Timothy 1:18 says Timothy, my son, I give you this instruction in keeping with the prophecies once made about you, so that by following them you may fight a good fight, holding on to faith and a good conscience. Some have rejected these and so have shipwrecked their faith. Now 2Timothy 4:1 says In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge; Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage-with great patience and careful instruction. For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suite their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.
Now look at James 1:5 it says If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who give generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.
To conculde look at Colossians 2:2 it says My purpose is that they may be encourage in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. I tell you this so that no one may deceive you by find-sounding arguments. For though I am absent from you in body, I am present with you in spirit and delight to see how orderly you are and how firm your faith in Christ is.
