WISDOM AND RIGHTEOUSNESS

THE GLORY OF THE WORD, YOUR LIFE IS CAREFULLY PLANNED BY GOD, DEAL WITH IT WITH THE WORD, A CUE FROM SHADRACH, MESHACH AND ABEDNEGO, THE URGENCY OF THE GOSPEL, THE OUTWORKING OF LOVE, A PRODUCTIVE LIFE, TESTIFY OF HIS DEATH

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want…He restoreth my soul: HE LEADETH ME IN THE PATHS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS for his name’s sake (Psalm 23:1,3)

Did you know that wisdom and righteousness are intertwined? The wisdom (Greek: “phronesis”) that I’m talking about is practical wisdom. It’s the outworking of the righteousness of God in your life. When we talk about the righteousness of God, we’re talking about practical wisdom at work, the expression of “phronesis.”

We’re children of righteousness, and you can’t walk in righteousness and fail in wisdom (“phronesis”). The underlined portion of our theme verse says, “…he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness….” Walking in the paths of righteousness is “phronesis.” It means you don’t go anywhere by chance. You don’t meet anybody by chance; in your path, there’re no accidents. Everything is prearranged by God.

In studying the relationship between wisdom and righteousness in Proverbs 8:12-18, Wisdom says, “I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions. The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate. Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength. By me kings reign, and princes decree justice. By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth. I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me. Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness.”

With wisdom leading you in the paths of righteousness, you could never be poor. So, every day, declare, “Wisdom is at work in me today! No chance occurrences in my life. Predestination is at work in me.” Your life was planned by God to be in the paths of wisdom and righteousness. Praise God!

CONFESSION

Wisdom is at work in me today, and I’m set on a preordained path of righteousness! Predestination is at work in me. I don’t go anywhere by chance. I don’t meet anybody by chance; in my path of life, there’s no death. My life has a purpose with God. Amen.
