Wisdom (Proverbs 3) – Part II

Quest for Wisdom” by Meghan Williams of Dyed4you Art

This is part II 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 II is based on  Proverbs 3:5-8 (VOICE):

“Place your trust in the Eternal; rely on Him completely; never depend upon your own ideas and inventions. Give Him the credit for everything you accomplish, and He will smooth out and straighten the road that lies ahead. And don’t think you can decide on your own what is right and what is wrong. Respect the Eternal; turn and run from evil. If you depend on Him, your body and mind will be free from the strain of a sinful life, will experience healing and health, and will be strengthened at their core.”

The first Prophetic Nugget is called “Unshakable Foundation.”

Proverbs 3:5 (VOICE) Place your trust in the Eternal; rely on Him completely; never depend upon your own ideas and inventions.

Beloved, trusting Me creates an unshakable foundation. For I AM steadfast and secure, a stronghold never broken. So rest in Me completely, and yield to My ways. Trust in Me to lead you, for I will guide you in love. For I know how you are wired, and I know what is to come. I know how best to prepare you, and I know how best to support you. I know what is for the good, for I see everything. 

Trust in Me to lead you, and yield your ways to Me. When you choose My plans over those of your own, you choose in fact the surest path. For I remain the same always, and My love for you will never fade. So yield and rest wholeheartedly, and trust that I will lead you well.

The second Prophetic Nugget is called “Honor to You {Moments with God}.”

Proverbs 3:6 (VOICE) Give Him the credit for everything you accomplish, and He will smooth out and straighten the road that lies ahead.

{Speaking to God} Lord, I give praise to You for every success – for every failure too. Because perceived win or loss matters not, it’s the success of the lessons I’m to learn that matters most to You. I can release any tendency towards perfectionism, for in the end it’s worth naught if I do everything “right” but miss the parts that are most important to You.

{Declaring} So I will yield to You fully, and put all honor in Your hands. For You are worthy of all praise. So to You be all the glory, for its Your hand that leads me. I entrust myself to You, and I rest in Your embrace.

The third Prophetic Nugget is called “Trust Me to Lead You Rightly.”

Proverbs 3:7 (VOICE) And don’t think you can decide on your own what is right and what is wrong. Respect the Eternal; turn and run from evil.

Beloved, human judgment is influenced by opinions and bias, which makes it faulty. Even those who attempt to be scrupulous can still err, despite honest and earnest efforts to be righteous. Because I AM the same yesterday, today, and forever, My thoughts stay true – day-by-day, year-by-year, generation-by-generation. So trust Me to be steadfast in truth.

My Word and My Spirit guide you, if you will let Me lead. I can steer you clear of evil – whether they be obvious sin or unseen ones of the heart. If you trust and respect Me, you know I do not make rules for their own sake. Rather everything has a purpose, and that purpose is good. 

If you find you don’t understand My instructions, you know that you can trust me anyway – even when you don’t understand. So resist the urge to allow a “need to understand” to become an idol. Instead yield to Me and trust Me to lead, and to lead you rightly.

The fourth Prophetic Nugget is called “Yield to My Perfect Will.”

Proverbs 3:8 (VOICE) If you depend on Him, your body and mind will be free from the strain of a sinful life, will experience healing and health, and will be strengthened at their core.

Beloved, I do not instruct you to yield to Me and My ways from a desire to control you or strong arm you into doing what I want. I instruct you to yield because I see the path of greatest blessing. Sometimes that blessing comes from grace under challenge and sometimes from hardships avoided, but ultimately I see the best path. 

I desire blessing for you. When you choose to surrender your will to Mine, you are demonstrating that you trust Me and believe My heart towards you is good. When you resist Me, you demonstrate fear and a lack of trust. Often those choices come from past woundings, so I extend grace even in those moments. However, the highest sense of right in any situation is to yield to My perfect will and trust Me to guide you through. So make the intentional decision to yield, and leave the rest to Me.

Luke 10:38-42 (TPT) As Jesus and the disciples continued on their journey, they came to a village where a woman welcomed Jesus into her home. Her name was Martha and she had a sister named Mary. 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.

This is a series of Prophetic Nuggets from “Daily Downloads from Heaven” by Meghan Williams that are connected by scripture / theme. It is a series of six Prophetic Nuggets based on James 3:13-18 (VOICE):

Who in your community is understanding and wise? Let his example, which is marked by wisdom and gentleness, blaze a trail for others. If your heart is one that bleeds dark streams of jealousy and selfishness, do not be so proud that you ignore your depraved state. The wisdom of this world should never be mistaken for heavenly wisdom; it originates below in the earthly realms, with the demons. Any place where you find jealousy and selfish ambition, you will discover chaos and evil thriving under its rule. Heavenly wisdom centers on purity, peace, gentleness, deference, mercy, and other good fruits untainted by hypocrisy. The seed that flowers into righteousness will always be planted in peace by those who embrace peace.
