9.17.2020 – “…joy will break forth within you as you listen for what I’ll say.”

I was drawn to this passage this morning… Proverbs 8:32-36 in The Passion Translation.

I think it paints the most beautiful picture of when we find ourselves in this “place of longing to hear from Him”—this place of eager excitement, this longing and desire to hear from Him—what’s on His mind, what He has to say, what is on His heart—and the wisdom that comes from this place—and the JOY— from simply having close relationship with Him, and waiting and walking with Him. It comes from this place!

This bond, this relationship, this waiting in the secret place for what He wants to speak to us…waiting and watching and listening for what He wants to teach us, what He wants to show us from His heart…It says, For the fountain of life pours into you every time that you find meand this is the secret of growing in the delight and favor of the Lord.” 💗

Wisdom Worth Waiting For

32 So listen, my sons and daughters, to everything I tell you,
for nothing will bring you more joy than following my ways.
33 Listen to my counsel,
for my instruction will enlighten you.
You’ll be wise not to ignore it.
34 If you wait at wisdom’s doorway,
longing to hear a word for every day,
joy will break forth within you as you listen for what I’ll say.

35 For the fountain of life pours into you every time that you find me,
and this is the secret of growing in the delight
and the favor of the Lord.

36 But those who stumble and miss me will be sorry they did!
For ignoring what I have to say will bring harm to your own soul.
Those who hate me are simply flirting with death!” —Proverbs 8:32-36 TPT


“…nothing will bring you more joy than following My ways.”

“…joy will break forth within you as you listen for what I’ll say.

For the fountain of life pours into you every time that you find Me,
and this is the secret of growing in the delight
and the favor of the Lord.

Thank You, Jesus. 💖✨ Thank You for blessing us with the JOY and the LIFE that we discover in knowing and finding You, and in walking closely with You!
