“The man that wandereth out of the way of understanding shall remain in the congregation of the dead.” – Proverbs 21:16
Read: Daniel 4:30-36; Luke 24:25-32
Understanding is a wellspring of life. That is the only way to guarantee your dreams live and don’t die. The writer of Proverbs states that when a man wanders out of the way of understanding, he becomes an active member of the congregation of the dead. But you know, child of God, you and I were destined by God to be in the congregation of the living, not of the dead. One Scriptural way to activate God’s life in you is through gaining spiritual understanding. Nebuchadnezzar was a highly blessed king who got filled with pride, and got turned into an animal. One thing he lacked that was responsible for his eating grass and crawling out in the field like an animal was understanding. In the same way, when understanding returned to him, the glory of his kingdom was restored; Honor and brightness returned to him and he became established in his kingdom. Ask God to fill you with spiritual understanding today. You will see dignity and glory restored, and the life of God will be made more manifest in you.
