A Great Treasure Box!
One of my favorite books of the bible is the books of Proverbs. It really is a great treasure box of practical wisdom inspired by God. Each proverb is a short statement that addresses every day, familiar situations to teach moral, ethical and spiritual principles. These principles apply to all people. The real appeal of this remarkable book is that it contains practical wisdom, understanding and knowledge that people can understand easily, at least on the surface.
The Book of Proverbs is full of great tips and advice – and wisdom is praised more than anything else – more than 100 times.
It is also King Solomon’s great volume of wisdom. Proverbs deals with various aspects of the human experience and guides us in the way of right living. The book also encourages us to seek after wisdom, while also telling us where that wisdom can be found. This wisdom must be sought like buried treasure. It also must be viewed as a precious jewel. We must seek after it diligently and not let go of it for all our days. The truth is true wisdom always begins with God. Ultimately, the book teaches that wisdom can be found, but only by those who search for it with all their heart.
One of my favorites is from Proverbs 3:33 “The Lord’s curse is on the house of the wicked, but he blesses the home of the righteous.” It´s a great word of power! it refers to our physical home, where we live and also our spiritual home since our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. Therefore, it is blessed because where God dwells there are his blessings and favor. YOU are favored and blessed if you are filled with his Spirit. Think about for a moment! The wicked are cursed-but YOU and your house is blessed! What kind of blessings are we talking about? Let´s look at the following scriptures and you will find GREAT TREASURES:
Deuteronomy 28:2-8 (NLT) “You will experience all these blessings IF you obey the Lord your God: You will be blessed in your towns and in the country. You will be blessed with many children and productive fields. You will be blessed with fertile herds and flocks. You will be blessed with baskets overflowing with fruit, and with kneading bowls filled with bread. You will be blessed wherever you go, both in coming and in going. The Lord will conquer your enemies when they attack you… And the Lord will bless everything you do and will fill your storehouses with grain.”
Psalm 31:19 (NLT) “God wants to bless you visibly in front of others as a testimony. “Lord, you have stored up great blessings for those who honor you. You do much for those who come to you for protection, blessing them before the watching world.”
Ezekiel 34:26 (NLT) “God blesses you so you can be a blessing to others! “I will cause my people and their homes around my holy hill to BE a blessing. And I will send showers, showers of blessings, which will come just when they are needed.” Ezekiel 34:26 (NLT)
THANK you, Lord, for all your blessings!
