Scripture: Proverbs 8:12-21, 4:20-23
Proverbs 8:12-21 says, “I, wisdom, dwell with prudence, And find out knowledge and discretion. The fear of the Lord is to hate evil; Pride and arrogance and the evil way And the perverse mouth I hate. Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom; I am understanding, I have strength. By me kings reign, And rulers decree justice. By me princes rule, and nobles, All the judges of the earth. I love those who love me, And those who seek me diligently will find me. Riches and honor are with me, Enduring riches and righteousness. My fruit is better than gold, yes, than fine gold, And my revenue than choice silver. I traverse the way of righteousness, In the midst of the paths of justice, That I may cause those who love me to inherit wealth, That I may fill their treasuries.” The reason I personally memorize this and sow it, is that I need the wisdom and the fear of the Lord, the counsel, the understanding and the strength to walk in righteousness and walk in the path of judgment so that I can cause the filling of the ministry treasury for the purposes of God. It is my job to walk in such a way as to trust God for this promise. Accessing God’s justice can fill the ministry treasury so the purpose of God can be accomplished. My purpose as a father is to walk in this to make provision for my family. This is God’s will and it is His purpose. The Kingdom works this way. When we sow the Word in our hearts, we are to declare it and decree it until we see it.
