THE BEAUTY OF THE YELLOW ROSE by Pastor Davis
WHAT IF YOU CALLED OUT TO LADY WISDOM AND SHE COULD NOT BE FOUND?
Have you ever been in a situation where you were always giving and the other person was always taking? Have you tried to please a person and for whatever reason they never seem to be satisfied with what you were doing? Have you ever tried to provide council to a person and they just laugh, and joked at your knowledge? You say, this is foolish, why am I wasting my time with such a person? Knowledge say it is because you are wise and Lady Wisdom lives within you.
Know this as truth, LADY WISDOM cries out to the simple, the scorners, and fools. The simple are naïve, impressionable people who are open to all kinds of influences, both good and bad; here their instability seems to be leading them in the wrong direction. Scorners are those who treat wise counsel with contempt; nothing is sacred or serious to them. Fools are those who senselessly refuse instruction; they are conceited and opinionated in their ignorance. My Mother would say, they are people who have a hard head and will never understand the wisdom of God, so why bother with them.
I try to find reasoning in My Mother’s words, because I convinced myself that at some point LADY WISDOM will surely show up and they will discover the truth in the power of LADY WISDOM. Therefore, I such through the scriptures and this is what I found.
Now I encourage you to pay close attention to the words of LADY WISDOM as she speaks truth to power for your edification. This is what LADY WISDOM had to say, “Simpletons! How long will you wallow in ignorance?
Cynics! How long will you feed your cynicism?
Idiots! How long will you refuse to learn?
About face! I can revise your life. Look, I’m ready to pour out my spirit on you; I’m ready to tell you all I know. As it is, I’ve called, but you’ve turned a deaf ear; I’ve reached out to you, but you’ve ignored me.
“Since you laugh at my counsel and make a joke of my advice, how can I take you seriously?
I will turn the tables and joke about your troubles! What if the roof falls in, and your whole life goes to pieces. What if catastrophe strikes and there’s nothing to show for your life but rubble and ashes? You will need me then. You will call for me, but do not expect an answer. No matter how hard you look, you will not find me.
“Because you hated Knowledge and had nothing to do with the Fear-of-God, Because you wouldn’t take my advice and brushed aside all my offers to train you, Well, you’ve made your bed—now lie in it; you wanted your own way—now, how do you like it? Don’t you see what happens, you simpletons, you idiots? Carelessness kills; complacency is murder. First pay attention to me, and then relax. Now you can take it easy—you’re in good hands.” (Proverbs 1:22-33 MSG)
One of the greatest tragedies of life is the crass rejection of Wisdom’s gracious entreaties. It called forth the lament of lost opportunity from the summit of Oliver, “I would but you would not.”
Wisdom sorrows over people who brush aside all her wise counsel and who will have nothing to do with her constructive criticism. Now I ask you, what makes people stubborn refusal so irrational? I have pondered this question in my mind for quite some time. Therefore, I tell you this truth, God’s commandments and warning is for our own good, not for God’. Here is one thing that we should know, and that is if we as a people continue to persist in our refusal to listen to LADY WISDOM, that rejection will inevitably bring disaster and ruin. Then it will be Wisdom’s turn to laugh. “I also will laugh at your calamity, not because it is funny, but because of your continual refusal to observe the wise counsel LADY WISDOM has continue to offer you.
Now let me leave you with this final thought from the book of Psalms 27:14 KJV, it says, “ Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD. I say if you will do this and allow him to speak to your heart, I guarantee you LADY WISDOM will show up and you will be totally amazed. Today, I minister to you from a position of peace, purpose, power and prosperity. I remain your brother in Christ, Pastor Davis/Master Teacher.
I encourage you to think globally and work locally as you SEEK THE SWEET AROMAS OF WISDOM AND DISCOVER THE BEAUTY OF HER SOUL.
