Radiant Happenings! April 4th

What a beautiful Resurrection Sunday service we enjoyed! From great music, to the most adorable Jr. Superkid parade, to two great words – one from Brother Copeland and one from Pastor George! If you were not able to attend or watch the service, do so today!

Now for this week's verse in Proverbs 2:

"For the Lord gives skillful and godly Wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding." Proverbs 2:6 (AMPC)

You will never find anything coming from God's mouth except truth. Wisdom is truth and Jesus said that knowing the truth is what makes you free (John 8:32). God has given us His wisdom in the written Word through Moses, through David, through Paul – through all the men who wrote the books of the Old and New Covenants. That divine wisdom is written down now in one Book, the Bible, so anytime we want to we can receive the wisdom and knowledge we need for every situation.

We don't have to go through the experiences Moses went through to learn the lessons he learned. We can find out from the Word what God taught him. Just think about what God has done for us! We have God's wisdom available to us in the written Word. We also have the Holy Spirit living inside us to teach and reveal this wisdom to us.

Listen to what the Kesuvim / The Writings (Mishlei/Proverbs) on pg. 17 say about verse six:

Vs. 6 "For HASHEM grants wisdom; from His mouth [come] knowledge and understanding. The very fact that chochmah is God-given indicates its great value – a compelling reason why you should seek to acquire it (Rashi). Even after intellectual struggle, a person may arrive at faulty conclusions. But if he is meritorious, he will receive true knowledge and understanding from [Hashem's] mouth."
