“The LORD possessed me at the beginning of His way, Before His works of old. I have been established from everlasting, From the beginning, before there was ever an earth. When there were no depths I was brought forth, When there were no fountains abounding with water. Before the mountains were settled, Before the hills, I was brought forth; while as yet He had not made the earth or the fields, Or the primal dust of the world. When He prepared the heavens, I was there, When He drew a circle on the face of the deep, when He established the clouds above, When He strengthened the fountains of the deep, when He assigned to the sea its limit, so that the waters would not transgress His command, When He marked out the foundations of the earth, then I was beside Him as a master craftsman; And I was daily His delight, Rejoicing always before Him, rejoicing in His inhabited world, And my delight was with the sons of men.” Proverbs 8:22-31
“Does not Wisdom cry out?
Does it not shout out, come ye and learn of Me?
I was established years ago as a workman. I was beside Him ever learning — and yet many do not hear My Cry.
Oh simple ones: ‘Come to my hearth, and sit beside Me and learn.’
You would do well to gain My Wisdom. You would do well to learn of its depths. For without Me, you will surely fall.
Solomon prayed for wisdom and I gave him all other things with it. For with my guidance kings will rule, and with it, even a poor man will succeed.
I come to all who would ask of Me. I will give you good direction and counsel.
You don’t find Me along the streets. You don’t find Me in the great halls of learning. But you will find Me in the depths of your soul as you grasp for truth.
I AM HE, even HE that you seek.
Wisdom was ever before Me in the beginning. He was a workman, ever rejoicing in what I wrought through His hands.”
