Wisdom (Proverbs 3) – Part IV

The Seekers Keys” by Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Art

This is part IV in a series of Prophetic Nuggets from “Daily Downloads from Heaven” by Meghan Williams that are connected by scripture / theme and were birthed over an 18-month period. It is a set of Prophetic Nuggets based on Proverbs 3 (the Wisdom chapter) separated into six parts and 29 downloads. 

PART IV is based on Proverbs 3:13-20 (VOICE):

“How fortunate are those who discover Lady Wisdom and those who understand her ways! For her worth is greater than the most expensive prize you could win. Her profit is greater than the finest thing you could buy. No gem is more precious than she is— your most extravagant desire doesn’t come close to her. She holds the secret of a long life in one hand and riches and fame in her other hand. Her ways are pleasant; all of her pathways are peaceful. She is like a tree that produces a satisfied life for anyone who can wrap their arms around her; happiness waits for any who hold her tightly. It was by wisdom that the Eternal fashioned the earth and by understanding that He designed the heavens. Through His knowledge, the deep was divided into seas and sky, and the clouds understood when to let down the morning dew.”

The first Prophetic Nugget is called “Immeasurable Value.”

Proverbs 3:13 (VOICE) How fortunate are those who discover Lady Wisdom and those who understand her ways!

Beloved, to know and walk in wisdom is a treasure of immeasurable value. For those who walk in her ways are blessed at every turn. They hold the keys to abundant life, so they will ever prosper. Even in hardships they find triumph.

Choose to pursue wisdom – to make her an intimate friend. For as you seek her as though she were the greatest of gems, you cannot help but find her, for I will show you her ways. So simply set your heart upon her and seek her as the most valiant of quests. For the treasures you’ll find within her heart, are blessings forevermore.

The second Prophetic Nugget is called “Value Wisdom.”

Proverbs 3:14 (VOICE)  For her worth is greater than the most expensive prize you could win. Her profit is greater than the finest thing you could buy.

Beloved, that which you esteem as valuable and important, you will make time for. You will be persistent in its pursuit. You will cherish it when it is gained. You hold it dear and won’t take it lightly.

If you esteem wisdom, you value all it brings. You don’t careless dismiss it, or shrug it off when it’s spoken. You receive it. You hold it fast. You seek to understand it and determine what to do with it. For it is not enough to seek wisdom, you must value it as well.

The third Prophetic Nugget is called “Esteem Wisdom.”

Proverbs 3:15 (VOICE) No gem is more precious than she is— your most extravagant desire doesn’t come close to her.

Beloved, the earthly things you value pale in comparison to wisdom that comes from Me. For true wisdom brings freedom and hope, power and life, so resist the urge to marginalize it or treat it as something you can lightly choose not to embrace.

One who is wise embraces wisdom. Those who do not, cloak themselves in foolishness and bring ruin upon themselves. I desire that you choose wisdom because I understand the the negative consequences if you do not. And though I want you to choose well, the choice still belongs to you. So choose wisely, beloved. 

The fourth Prophetic Nugget is called “Embrace Divine Wisdom.”

Proverbs 3:16 (VOICE) She holds the secret of a long life in one hand and riches and fame in her other hand.

Beloved, My ways are not your ways, nor My thoughts your thoughts. So what is true wisdom often challenges your personal feelings and understanding. It means foregoing your own sense of wisdom in favor of that which is divinely given. 

When you yield to true wisdom it is life-giving and a blessing to all. It cannot always be made sense of, and yet the truth of its sweetness is demonstrated in its fruit. So embrace divine wisdom, and walk in the abundant blessings it brings.

The fifth Prophetic Nugget is called “The Better Path.”

Proverbs 3:17 (VOICE) Her ways are pleasant; all of her pathways are peaceful.

Beloved, the paths of wisdom are sweet – though not always easy, they’re always worth the effort. They bring contentment and peace even in hardship. They are clear, for each step is lit by Me.

As you walk in wisdom, you find peace because you lay down the burden of trying to be in control and judging what is right and wrong in your own eyes. Instead you yield to My judgment, which is perfect. So release control and choose the better path – the one of godly wisdom, which brings life.

The sixth Prophetic Nugget is called “Hold Tightly to Wisdom.”

Proverbs 3:18 (VOICE) She is like a tree that produces a satisfied life for anyone who can wrap their arms around her; happiness waits for any who hold her tightly.

Beloved, hold tightly to wisdom, for there will always be temptation to compromise. But to the one who refuses to be swayed is satisfaction and peace. For compromise makes false promises, but wisdom is firm and steadfast. Blessed are those who walk in its way.

Compromise often seems right in the moment – or perhaps like a small concession, but if a sailor is one degree off course from the onset, he will find himself far afield at the end. So host fast to what you know is right, for wisdom is its own reward.

The seventh Prophetic Nugget is called “Bring Forth Life.”

Proverbs 3:19 (VOICE) It was by wisdom that the Eternal fashioned the earth and by understanding that He designed the heavens.

Beloved, wisdom is intimately tied to creation. For inspiration without understanding of how to bring its manifestation comes to naught. So allow yourself to align with wisdom’s flow that you might create under My divine inspiration and bring forth blessing in the earth.

For the earth is Mine as is all that is in it. You are My creation and I empower you to operate in My flow. So may you move in conjunction with My Holy Spirit and may you create under My inspiration that you might bring life forth in all you do.

The eighth Prophetic Nugget is called “Move in Wisdom.”

Proverbs 3:20 (VOICE) Through His knowledge, the deep was divided into seas and sky, and the clouds understood when to let down the morning dew.

Beloved, wisdom that comes from Me helps you recognize the right timing. It instructs you when to act, and when to pause. It keeps you in My perfect timing that you might be aligned with My perfect plans.

The right word in the wrong season is the wrong word. And likewise the right action at the wrong time is the wrong action. You cannot arrive at your desired destination by making the correct turns miles too soon. So move in wisdom and stay in alignment with Me. 

Wisdom (Proverbs 3) – Part III

Heir of Righteousness” by Meghan Williams, Dyed4you Art

This is part III in a series of Prophetic Nuggets from “Daily Downloads from Heaven” by Meghan Williams that are connected by scripture / theme and were birthed over an 18-month period. It is a set of Prophetic Nuggets based on Proverbs 3 (the Wisdom chapter) separated into six parts and 29 downloads. 

PART III is based on Proverbs 3:9-12 (VOICE):

“Pay tribute to the Eternal in all of your affairs. Honor Him with the best of what you make. That way you will prosper to the fullest and have plenty of food to eat and wine to drink. My son, do not ignore the Eternal’s instruction or lose heart when He steps in to correct you; Because the Eternal proves His love by caring enough to discipline you, just as a father does his child, his pride and joy.”

The first Prophetic Nugget is called “Positioned to Receive {Moments with God}.”

Proverbs 3:9 (VOICE) Pay tribute to the Eternal in all of your affairs. Honor Him with the best of what you make.

{Speaking to God} I want to honor You with all that I have. It all comes from You anyway, so I owe all I have to You. But to give You my first and my best, seems like a small way to give thanks and honor for the abundance of love and grace You have for me. It also helps me resist the urge to be in fear that you’ll suddenly reject me and be mindful of my needs. So I choose to honor You first because You are worthy. 

{He smiles as He replies} I receive your heartfelt offering, for I know you give it with joy. I receive the honor you’re bestowing on Me, and I value the trust you place in Me. You are My beloved, and I love to lavish you with goodness, so I love that you are intentional to keep your heart rightly positioned to receive.

The second Prophetic Nugget is called “Positioned for Blessing.”

Proverbs 3:10 (VOICE) That way you will prosper to the fullest and have plenty of food to eat and wine to drink.

Beloved, I desire that you would prosper in every good thing. In making Me your focus, and in trusting your needs and desires to Me, you are positioned for blessing. For if your focus is on your earthly desires or on your sense of lack, it blocks the very blessing that you want and that I long to give you. 

Be intentional to stay rooted in Me and in gratitude for all you’ve been given. Then trust that I will bring to you what you need when you need it and more besides. For I love to take care of My children, so yield your heart to Me.

The third Prophetic Nugget is called “Implement the Instructions.”

Proverbs 3:11 (VOICE) My son, do not ignore the Eternal’s instruction or lose heart when He steps in to correct you;

Beloved, be intentional to keep your heart tender, and be open to truth – even when it challenges you. For My Spirit is with you to guide and correct you, so be open to the flow. I’m never cruel to My children, nor do I do things to frustrate them. So in the moments you hear correction, know it comes from a heart of love.

Refuse to be like Adam and Eve who chose to hide themselves from Me – naked and ashamed – rather than face Me and allow Me to bring them back into alignment. Trust that when I give correction, it is for your good and because I love you too much to let you harm yourself wandering off track. So listen and receive, then implement the instructions you are given.

The fourth Prophetic Nugget is called “Be Contrite {Moments with God}.

Proverbs 3:12 (VOICE) Because the Eternal proves His love by caring enough to discipline you, just as a father does his child, his pride and joy.

{From a heart of gratitude} Thank You, Papa God, for caring about me enough to correct me in love. You know my heart because you know me intimately, so You know just how to tell me things – even hard things. As long as my heart is open to correction, You always say the hard things in a way I can receive. 

{Praying} May my heart be ever tender, and may my heart be ever true. May I listen intently to all You tell me I should do. For I know You aren’t controlling, nor do You act on whims. So if You’re bothering to tell me, it must be something I need. May I always be contrite, and may my heart be fixed on You.

I promise they will always be priests because in his jealousy for Me, Phinehas covered the wickedness of the Israelites.” Continue reading “Phinehas Fire (Numbers 25:11-13)”

Mary sat down attentively before the Master, absorbing every revelation he shared. But Martha became exasperated by finishing the numerous household chores in preparation for her guests, so she interrupted Jesus and said, “Lord, don’t you think it’s unfair that my sister left me to do all the work by myself? You should tell her to get up and help me.” The Lord answered her, “Martha, my beloved Martha. Why are you upset and troubled, pulled away by all these many distractions? Are they really that important? Mary has discovered the one thing most important by choosing to sit at my feet. She is undistracted, and I won’t take this privilege from her.”

O Eternal One, You have explored my heart and know exactly who I am; You even know the small details like when I take a seat and when I stand up again. Even when I am far away, You know what I’m thinking. You observe my wanderings and my sleeping, my waking and my dreaming, and You know everything I do in more detail than even I know. You know what I’m going to say long before I say it. It is true, Eternal One, that You know everything and everyone. You have surrounded me on every side, behind me and before me, and You have placed Your hand gently on my shoulder. It is the most amazing feeling to know how deeply You know me, inside and out; the realization of it is so great that I cannot comprehend it. Can I go anywhere apart from Your Spirit? Is there anywhere I can go to escape Your watchful presence? For You shaped me, inside and out. You knitted me together in my mother’s womb long before I took my first breath. I will offer You my grateful heart, for I am Your unique creation, filled with wonder and awe. You have approached even the smallest details with excellence; Your works are wonderful; I carry this knowledge deep within my soul. You see all things; nothing about me was hidden from You As I took shape in secret, carefully crafted in the heart of the earth before I was born from its womb. You see all things; You saw me growing, changing in my mother’s womb; Every detail of my life was already written in Your book; You established the length of my life before I ever tasted the sweetness of it. Your thoughts and plans are treasures to me, O God! I cherish each and every one of them! How grand in scope! How many in number! If I could count each one of them, they would be more than all the grains of sand on earth. Their number is inconceivable! Even when I wake up, I am still near to You.
