Clinging much to His Word today…
“Receive my instruction, and not silver, and knowledge rather than choice gold; for wisdom is better than rubies, and all the things one may desire cannot be compared with her.” Proverbs 8:10-11
These verses encourage me and convict me all at the same time.
First of all, I’m encouraged to be reminded that God, His wisdom and His instruction are more valuable than anything this world can offer. I mean, anything!!
However, I’m also convicted because I know that all too often I covet or long for the things of this world that will never satisfy. I know this for a fact because every new “step” along the way, the things I thought I *always* wanted and would make me *so* happy, well guess what? They don’t fill the emptiness and satisfy me at all!! ONLY GOD CAN FILL ME UP!
I think that I need this reminder a little more often than I’d like to admit.
Oh Father, thank You for reminding me that You are more valuable than silver or gold. You are more precious than anything this world can offer me. You are beautiful to me. You are what my soul longs for…
