Similarities of being a soldier and the Art of War; Part 3.
Friday, March 1, 2013
Our first principle was
1. Human ability cannot guarantee true success, verses 11-12.
2. The second statement of wisdom, strength is more impressive yet less effective than wisdom.
Strength is more impressive but less effective than wisdom.
3. Wise counsel is never popular, rarely obeyed and seldom remembered. Human rulers will always out-shout wise counselors and fools prefer the former, ECC 9:17.
5. Constructive words of wisdom are no match for destructive weapons of war.
There is a quiet voice deep within your spirit as a child of God and the voice is the Spirit of God using Godâ€™s book as your guide!
1 Co 2:9 “But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”
ISA 40:31 “Yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary.”
EPH 3:20 “Now to Him who is able to do exceeding abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us.”
1TI 4:4-5, “For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected, if it is received with gratitude; for it is sanctified by means of the word of God and prayer.”
Foolishness means lack of good sense!
Â Lack of foresight!
Failing to realize the consequences of a stupid act before the act occurs.
EPH 5:4 “There must be no filthiness and silly talk, or coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks.”
EPH 5:4 “Dirty stories, foul talk, and coarse jokes– these are not for you. Instead, remind each other of Godâ€™s goodness, and be thankful.” (TLB)
PHI 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, let your mind dwell on these things.
Right is a symbol of that which is worthy of our effort and pursuit!
PSA 16:8 I have set the Lord continually before me; Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
PSA 121:5 The Lord is your keeper; The Lord is your shade on your right hand.
