When you are in the middle of the mess, you only see what is front of you. It is only when Jesus pulls you out that you see the whole picture. He may do so by sending an army of family, friends, and your church family who care more about your soul and pray for you, and even a counselor who can help you through the process of therapy. But you have to take hold, and take that first step!
The Beginning of Knowledge
1The 1 Kin. 4:32; Prov. 10:1; 25:1; Eccl. 12:9proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel:
2To know wisdom and instruction,
To perceive the words of understanding,
3To receive the instruction of wisdom,
Justice, judgment, and equity;
4To give prudence to the Prov. 9:4simple,
To the young man knowledge and discretion—
5Prov. 9:9A wise man will hear and increase learning,
And a man of understanding will attain wise counsel,
6To understand a proverb and an enigma,
The words of the wise and their Num. 12:8; Ps. 78:2; Dan. 8:23riddles.
7Job 28:28; Ps. 111:10; Prov. 9:10; 15:33; (Eccl. 12:13)The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge,
But fools despise wisdom and instruction.
