Proverbs 4

There’s a great parallel between this chapter and the previous.

We can see here the father who was once a young child is instructing and encouraging his son on what he learned from his own father.

The wisdom and instructions of God from our parents must be passed down to the next generations if we want to see continuity of the impact of God’s Kingdom on earth.

The consequences of not passing down the heritage of God to the next generations can be seen in

Judges 2:10-12
 "After that whole generation had been gathered to their ancestors, another generation grew up who knew neither the Lord nor what he had done for Israel. 11 Then the Israelites did evil in the eyes of the Lord and served the Baals. 12 They forsook the Lord, the God of their ancestors, who had brought them out of Egypt. They followed and worshiped various gods of the peoples around them. They aroused the Lord’s anger."

One day, we all who are young will stand in the shoes of our parents raising children. We must ensure that we communicate to them the wisdom, understanding and knowledge of God.

Another aspect of this chapter worthy of note is our responsibility in ensuring the wisdom of God finds expression in our lives. Until we give undivided attention and occupy our minds with God’s Word, we may not express and walk in the wisdom of God.

Seeking to walk in the wisdom of God must be intentional, it cannot be wished.

Also, we see mentioned in this chapter that God’s Word brings life to those who diligently seek it and offers health benefits to the body.  When we speak God’s Word over our bodies, it has tremendous power to keep our bodies healthy.  This is why our confessions should always be in line with God’s Word, regardless of the circumstance or situation.  The Word of God brings life to dead things in our lives, including our health. So, no matter the situation, find God’s Word for that situation and speak His Word over that circumstance.
