Okay, as promised, let us take a closer look into "Understanding".Two of the words translated into wisdom and understanding we have already looked into during our two previous lessons. There are also three others that I would like for us to look at. Two, briefly, and one more in depth. (Again, if you would like to use the same resources, here is Strong's Concordance on line for your convenience.)
The original Hebrew word lkX = is broken down into the two we'll look at briefly, the first one being "Sakal" (a verb) and the other, "Sakel" (a noun, masculine in origin/usage). The first being translated more often into "wise" or "understand", and the second into
There are others, too. In fact, one of them was the verse that we were to "ponder" this past week . . . Proverbs 24:3, but first, let us look at Proverbs 19:8. "He that getteth wisdom loveth his own soul: he that keepeth understanding shall find good." (KJV) What does this speak to your own heart? Why not write it out in your own words:
Okay, now let us go to Proverbs 24:3 - keeping in mind that this is talking about "Chokmah" (wisdom) [see Lesson 1 if you need to refresh your memory.] and "Tabuwn" (understanding), let us read this once more:
"Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established." (KJV)
Can this help you to refocus your thinking in all areas of your life? Your spiritual home as well as your physical home? Your 'body', your 'house', basically, anywhere you live! You can apply this to every single area of your life. Why not re-write this, several times, using different aspects of these original words in place of "wisdom" and "understanding" to help it become even clearer to your heart.
As time permits, I would strongly suggest going back through your previous notes and in your notebook go ahead and do the same type of re-writing breakdown of as many of the verses we've looked up as possible. Allow the Word to become "Rehma" to your heart, for it is when it becomes alive within your spirit, that is when it becomes life changing, and, isn't that what our study is all about?
