The same Spirit of the living God that gave wisdom to the writer of Proverbs is ready and available now to pour wisdom into your heart. Just as these proverbs come to us in writing, so can the Spirit use your own hand in writing what could be called “extenders” to the proverbs. These are your own personal expressions of truths as they especially touch your own life. Perhaps people and circumstances will come to your awareness; lift them in prayer as the Spirit prompts. Images, further wisdom sayings of your own, and the Spirit’s creation will flow forth.
Once again, make use of the pauses that the Spirit urges you to make. Lift your eyes in silent pondering until the words of wisdom take flesh in your own life.
What are these?
Wise to ignore an insult. v. 16
Tongue of the wise brings healing. v. 18
Truthful lips always endure. v. 19
Joy for those who counsel peace v. 20
