Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding. For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold. She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her. Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her. (Proverbs 3:13-18)
Today's Morsel: Someone posted on Facebook the other day that they want to be so full of Jesus, that if a mosquito were to bite them that he would fly away singing "There is power in the blood!"
Solomon states, "Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding." He also says that wisdom is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her." Having this understanding and knowledge, we can identify what the tree of life in the midst of the Garden of Eden was with the tree of good and evil (Genesis 2:9), it was wisdom. It was this tree that wasn't forbidden from Adam and Eve, and it isn't forbidden for you and me. Notice, wisdom is called a tree of life. Solomon also tells us that wisdom was with the Lord before the creation of the earth (Proverbs 8:30); and then wisdom says, "Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed are they that keep my ways. Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not. Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors. For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the LORD. But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death" (Proverbs 8:32-36). If you will take hold of the tree of life, you won't be without anything. Have you tried Jesus lately?
Sing: If you're happy, and you know it, say amen, say amen! If you're happy, and you know it, say amen, amen! Cause when God's Spirit falls on you, It makes you shout, hallelujah! If you're happy and you know, it say amen!
