Works Willingly

“Then I [Wisdom] was with Him, like a master workman,
and I was daily His delight,
rejoicing before Him always,
rejoicing in His inhabited world
and delighting in the children of man.”
(Proverbs 8:30-31)

Striving, with the strength of Christ to daily:

  • Work diligently in excellence with willing hands
  • Delight in the Lord (at all times)
  • Rejoice before and in the Lord
  • Rejoice in God’s creation
  • Delight in those made in the image of God

Oh, how I desire wisdom! These verses are inspiring instruction to be diligently working and evermore delighting in the Lord, rejoicing in the Lord, and loving the Lord and the work of His hands.

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,
and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight.”
(Proverbs 9:10)

“Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain,
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.”
(Proverbs 31:30)

    thank you for this encouraging post! it’s especially good to hear during a very busy time of final exams when it’s easy to consider hard work and studying a curse! :) but the Lord has designed us to be stewards of all that He’s given us to do, no matter how big or small. thanks for the words of wisdom :) blessings to you.

    Wonderful thoughts at the closing of a year, and wonderful aspirations for the year ahead of us. I’m so thankful that the Lord promised, in James, to grant wisdom to all who ask in faith. Also, Proverbs 31:30 is one of my favorite verses!
