Scripture Page ... Understanding .. ( i know its not the word for the week but please read)
Have you ever stopped and asked your self why , Or searched for a understanding about why things happen or the events of life and even the little things why things are the way they are ? I have more times then I can count and for the last few weeks the word UNDERSTANDING has been weighing in my thoughts alot so I decided to look it up on bible gateway and see just what was said , Wow was I ever amazed with just what I came across , As always the bible has the best stories and the easiest ways about helping some one to understand things ! Theres that word again , The Colossians 1-9 and 2 Peter 1-5 were my two most heartfelt ones that stood out to me Especially the Colossians one it touched me in a way I'm not sure how to describe but it was pretty powerful , We have a God that doesn't judge or fault but forgives us and its pointed out just how understanding he is in that verse, As always i added the other Scriptures that stood out to me and they are written on my page as well .. Thanks for stopping by I am sorry its not the word we are all on but as i stated I was so drawn to do this word , I will do wisdom in the next few days ! Have a blessed day !
Proverbs 2:1 [ Make Insight Your Priority ] Good friend, take to heart what I'm telling you; collect my counsels and guard them with your life. Tune your ears to the world of Wisdom; set your heart on a life of Understanding. That's right—if you make Insight your priority, and won't take no for an answer, Searching for it like a prospector panning for gold, like an adventurer on a treasure hunt, Believe me, before you know it Fear-of-God will be yours; you'll have come upon the Knowledge of God.
Proverbs 14:29Slowness to anger makes for deep understanding; a quick-tempered person stockpiles stupidity.
Proverbs 14:33Lady Wisdom is at home in an understanding heart— fools never even get to say hello.
Proverbs 17:27The one who knows much says little; an understanding person remains calm.
Proverbs 24:3[ 20 ] It takes wisdom to build a house, and understanding to set it on a firm foundation; It takes knowledge to furnish its rooms with fine furniture and beautiful draperies.Proverbs 24:2-4 (in Context) Proverbs 24 (Whole Chapter)
Proverbs 25:3Like the horizons for breadth and the ocean for depth, the understanding of a good leader is broad and deep.
Matthew 13:11He replied, "You've been given insight into God's kingdom. You know how it works. Not everybody has this gift, this insight; it hasn't been given to them. Whenever someone has a ready heart for this, the insights and understandings flow freely. But if there is no readiness, any trace of receptivity soon disappears. That's why I tell stories: to create readiness, to nudge the people toward receptive insight. In their present state they can stare till doomsday and not see it, listen till they're blue in the face and not get it. I don't want Isaiah's forecast repeated all over again: Your ears are open but you don't hear a thing. Your eyes are awake but you don't see a thing. The people are blockheads! They stick their fingers in their ears so they won't have to listen; They screw their eyes shut so they won't have to look, so they won't have to deal with me face-to-face and let me heal them
Colossians 1:9Be assured that from the first day we heard of you, we haven't stopped praying for you, asking God to give you wise minds and spirits attuned to his will, and so acquire a thorough understanding of the ways in which God works. We pray that you'll live well for the Master, making him proud of you as you work hard in his orchard. As you learn more and more how God works, you will learn how to do your work. We pray that you'll have the strength to stick it out over the long haul—not the grim strength of gritting your teeth but the glory-strength God gives. It is strength that endures the unendurable and spills over into joy, thanking the Father who makes us strong enough to take part in everything bright and beautiful that he has for us.
2 Peter 1:5So don't lose a minute in building on what you've been given, complementing your basic faith with good character, spiritual understanding, alert discipline, passionate patience, reverent wonder, warm friendliness, and generous love, each dimension fitting into and developing the others. With these qualities active and growing in your lives, no grass will grow under your feet, no day will pass without its reward as you mature in your experience of our Master Jesus. Without these qualities you can't see what's right before you, oblivious that your old sinful life has been wiped off the books.
