Here is an insight that came to me today. God bless,
Key in Troublous Times
Solomon was David’s son, David taught Solomon the Law of God, the love of
God, and how that’s where wisdom comes from. Solomon was the offspring of David’s sin, they both (in their lives) fell away for a time, then returned
and put it together for all of us in their writings. David taught Solomon
and all of us:
“O how love I thy law! it is my meditation all the day. Thou through thy
commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies: for they are ever with me… The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.”
Psalms 119:97-98; 19:7.
Solomon spoke from a truism in his own life:
“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not
depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6.
Solomon passes on to us what he learned from his father David. God’s
Commandments were written on David’s heart and they became his Commandments
to his son.
God instructed Moses to write His instructions to us, David followed these
instructions, as we can. Here is what Moses wrote:
“And these words, which I command thee this day,” (“even ten commandments” 4:13) “shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes. And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.” Deuteronomy 6:6-9
Back to Solomon:
“For I was my father’s son, tender and only beloved in the sight of my
mother. He taught me also, and said unto me, Let thine heart retain my
words: keep my commandments, and live. Get wisdom, get understanding…
Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established. Turn not
to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.” Proverbs
We, with the whole world, have fallen away just like David and Solomon
did… for a time. However: They saw the error of their ways and returned
to the Way of God. They saw, and we see, the solution; the Merciful
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man
cometh unto the Father, but by me… I can do all things through Christ
which strengtheneth me… For it is God which worketh in you both to will
and to do of his good pleasure.” John 14:6; Philippians 2:13; 4:13.
Our heavenly father is teaching us right now, still; guiding, directing
and redirecting us along the Way:
“But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in
my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your
remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. Peace I leave with you, my
peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not
your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” John 14:26-27.
