“For wisdom will enter your heart and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul.” Proverbs 2:10
In these times of uncertainty, having opposing views and values shouted at us with force and passion, it can be hard to know the truth. We need wisdom. Both sides of any issue are equally absolutely sure they are right and know the whole truth. And if you don’t believe THEM, you are not only wrong but just plain stupid, of no consequence. We need, first, to realize no one person (or group of people) is entirely correct ALL the time about everything. People get things wrong on occasion. And second, we need to ask God for His truth and wisdom. When we have wisdom, like Proverbs tells us, we will have knowledge too, and it will bring peace (pleasantness) to our souls. While the battles rage around us, we can have the peace of God in our hearts.
Purple is a color that makes us think of royalty, luxury, power, dignity, confidence. When we seek God’s wisdom, these characteristics are released in our heart and life. When we seek God, we are open to His correction, and we can be confident and peaceful in the fiercest storm, because we know He will gently refine our thinking until it aligns with Him. It is sad to be judged wrongly, sad to be called names. However, when we are at peace, we can more easily forgive and let those things roll off us.
Our lovely Purple Wisdom Barrel Angel is here, holding wisdom, and knowledge; and a reminder to seek God. He will release the truth we need for every situation we encounter.
