(Proverbs 21:16 KJV) The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding shall remain in the congregation of the dead.
There is a danger for the one who spiritually “wanders” (8582). When I go to a thrift store, swap meet or big yard sale I just wander around. I don’t know what I will find. Often when I go to a mall I just wander around. It is a form of recreation. I am looking for nothing but serendipity.
What works at the swap meet does not work in my spiritual life. Although I rejoice in the unexpected as the Holy Spirit opens the scripture, I know it doesn’t happen because I am wandering. The Holy Spirit meets with me because I plan to meet with Him. “Understanding” (7919a) does not come by accident.
We are human. We can’t keep our noses to the grind stone like a rumba cleaning the floor. God understands that, but he expects attempts to focus.
So? Get in gear. Get with the program. Focus. Understanding is waiting.
