(Wisdom is speaking)“If you had responded to my rebuke, I would have poured out my heart to you and made my thoughts known to you.” (Proverbs 1:23)
Like Pooh in the tree after too much honey, do you find yourself stuck spiritually? Not moving? Does God seems quiet?
Wisdom speaks in the above verse from Proverbs and she shows us an interesting link:
Obedience and Intimacy
When God, through Wisdom, brought something to the attention of His children, they did not respond.
What happened next? Silence.
Let’s flip the scenario. If His children had responded, what would have happened?
- “I would have poured out my heart to you.”
- “I would have made my thoughts known to you.”
A new closeness with the Father.
So, are you stuck? Has God spoken and you’ve ignored Him? Ask Him where you got off track and respond with the next step of obedience.
Have you ever gotten stuck, literally?
What was it like?
How did you get free?
Why do you think Scripture links obedience with intimacy?
Is that logical? Fair?
