(Pro 2:10 KJV) When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul;
Most of us want to jump to the results, the reward, the promise. Then we wonder why it doesn’t seem to work out. Because we have skipped over all the preparation required. Have you ever read what it says on a can of paint about preparation? I have and then I ignore most of it. That might be why my paint jobs don’t come out so good. In some cases if you don’t prep right then the paint will peel off in a short time. The same is true of our spiritual walk.
If you look back at this chapter in regard to the preparation you will see that the promise of a wise heart and a pleasant soul are based on a lot of things like seeking and listening. God is not a magic elixir that mysteriously makes things right. Yes, He does what might seem like magic and He deals in mystery but our part is much more basic.
So? Grace is a gift. Growth is a process. Start processing.
