Lord thank you for understanding, and giving us knowledge to use wisdom in what we do and say that allows us to be of goodwill and peace the way God created us to be. As we look at Proverbs 16 we see God wants us to have Wisdom that is greater than being the richest man of earth.
Proverbs 16
New King James Version
Wisdom Is Better Than Gold
16 The preparations[a] of the heart belong to man, But the answer of the tongue is from the Lord. See we are in control of what we see, hear, smell, taste and feel in the body, so our tongues are controlled by the Spirit of God as we worship, reverence, have faith and hope in God to answer our prayers. I have to take ownership of how God created me with a soul to be able to imagine, have a conscience, memory, reason to be controlled by my affection toward Gods love.
2 All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, But the Lord weighs the spirits. Are you seeing the riches of your spirits desire for more and more of the blessing of the Lord as you seek and find He is able to minister to your every need. He created us to give our total being to His glory so the addictions of evil will not tempt us to do what is wrong, for wrong is never going to be right. We are see today wrong as right and right as wrong and it is seen in how lawlessness is common to day.
3 Commit[b] your works to the Lord, And your thoughts will be established. We are either controlled by God, or automatically controlled by Satan’s addictions that destroy one’s identity. God loves us and all one has to do is look at all He created for our enjoyment. Then look at what is going on with human nature, we are insane and out of control not wanting Law or order. This is sad, but yet it is what God warned us of. Sin abounds till one can’t do what is right, for they love what is wrong that is destroy Spirituality in all areas of life.
4 The Lord has made all for Himself, Yes, even the wicked for the day of [c]doom.Lord help us to see reality Your created us to worship, reverence, have faith and hope in You in order that our prayers may be effective working in the Kingdom of God. Can you see God created everyone and everything you see to become like Him? Remember we where all given free will and can be what we want to be and do what we want to do. I accepted the Lord as a teenager and am so thankful for Parents that loved the Lord as their parents loved the Lord and know we are seeing our kids love the Lord and teaching their children to love the Lord in a way that we are blest with one another even when we are far away in distance but never in Spirit. 
5 Everyone proud in heart is an abomination to the Lord; Though they join [d]forces, none will go unpunished. What a sad statement for it is so true People who are so proud are people full of pride and can only see themselves better than anyone else, for they are little Gods. Pride has one letter in the middle and that is I. I can and do not tell me I can’t smoke, drink, take drugs, lay with anyone I want to or do what I want; It’s my life. Even through we are seeing lawlessness we see a unrest, insanity that is getting worse for we are proud and prideful being better that those righteous do goodies. 
6 In mercy and truth Atonement is provided for iniquity; And by the fear of the Lord one departs from evil. Mercy and truth are provided to man kind to help us depart from evil ways as we fear God and what He created for those who do not give of their all to Him. In Christianity, atonement refers to the needed reconciliation between sinful mankind and the holy God. This reconciliation is possible through the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ, as expressed in Romans 3:25 25 whom God set forth as a [a]propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed, then Romans 5:11, 11 And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation. and Romans 5:19.  For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous.  Are you seeing the power of Atonement that is controlled by God and not any person. God forgive and forgets; thank the Lord He know our need of His righteousness, mercy, grace and Justice to be in His family as Ambassadors in His Kingdom!
7 When a man’s ways please the Lord, He makes even his enemies to be at peace with him. Thank the Lord we can cross the sea of life as we please the Lord in our souls, which is what we imagine, have a conscience toward and memory and reason for affection to please our Lord and savior Jesus Christ. Thank the Lord we can pray for our enemies so they can’t argue with us but love the truth within us as followers of the Lord.
8 Better is a little with righteousness, Than vast revenues without justice. Thank the Lord better is not being bitter as we are seeing today around the world. Better to have a little righteousness that being bitter to where hate takes over and the need to want to stamp out all that God created for our good. Lord help us to see righteousness can’t be bought with money but with total commitment to honor the Lord and give Him our all!!
9 A man’s heart plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps. Thank the Lord we are free moral agents for we get to choose the right road over the wrong road. That is the reason we need to get connected to the vine; Jesus, so we can produce goodwill and peace to all and pray for our enemies to become more and more like the Lord.
People can’t buy justice and righteousness for it is ours as we accept the way, truth and life God gave to all to be empowered by the Holy Spirit to work at being like God not Satan. 
10 Divination is on the lips of the king; His mouth must not transgress in judgment. Communicating with God through prayer may in some cases be considered divination; both are open, typically two-way conversations with God. We also can see how Divination, the practice of determining the hidden significance or cause of events, sometimes foretelling the future, by various natural, psychological, and other techniques is wildly used by those who know the ways of God but liking the ways of Satan. Today we have more tools Satan uses to get people to think they are as good as God and it is destroying civilization’s around the world. The most important thing to remember is let do not transgress from the Law or we are never going to arrive at our destination, Heaven.
11 Honest weights and scales are the Lord’s; All the weights in the bag are His [e]work. Thank the Lord Honest weights and scales are the Lords for look at how He controls what we see in our planet. Look at how He weighs the intents of our hearts. Look at what He allows in nature and in the natural as well as the Spiritual. He created us for goodwill and peace and that is a weight we all need to be responsible for! Are you in need of more love, mercy and grace? Or is that to heavy and your wanting to cast all good aside and do you thing? Our world is being found over weight and sloppy and does not care how they act or behave Lord help me to weight the pro’s and cons of doing right over wrong! 
12 It is an abomination for kings to commit wickedness, For a throne is established by righteousness. This has not changed for when unrighteousness rules we have wickedness but when the righteous rule there in peace, love and joy in abundance. For there is law and order that benefits us all.
13 Righteous lips are the delight of kings,
And they love him who speaks what is right. Are we seeing righteousness lips from those in authority? No; people are certainly not righteous as Lawlessness is abounding. People think that they can resist the cops and it is costing societies increase cost for what the criminal is stealing from the public! 
14 As messengers of death is the king’s wrath,
But a wise man will appease it. We are seeing anger destroy nations and we need to understand the power of controlling our anger, so we can solve problems not make matter worse by being bitter and hateful of what Your created us for Peace and Goodwill
15 In the light of the king’s face is life,
And his favor is like a cloud of the latter rain. Kings are in charge and they show it by the Look on their faces of peace and joy and understand the fulfillment of a job well done, not at all boastful. But humbly giving praise to God for showers of blessing not wanting approval for it, but god is showering His love of approval upon His family, the Church, that’s those who have accepted Jesus as personal Lord and Savior. It is not denomination that save us but a personal relationship with the Lord.
16 How much better to get wisdom than gold!
And to get understanding is to be chosen rather than silver. Lord help us to see wisdom is like golden nuggets and it give us the ability to understand what is good from evil! Today good is evil and evil is good. This evil has becoming normal and our world is suffering from fearful of lawlessness.

17 The highway of the upright is to depart from evil;
He who keeps his way preserves his soul. We are on the Kings Highway leading towards heaven and few that find it, for they want to Keep in the Lords way to keep them safe and secure, we need to keep on the way, not in the way of others seeing the Lords will! Satan wants us to rule ourselves with his lust for addictions of evil and God created us all for His goodwill and peace.
18 Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before [f]a fall. Pr(I)de is you in charge of all things and the Lord wants us all to be Proud of others, so we see the value of all being saved from destruction of up lifting of self. I can’t, but God can give us all what is needed for the journey of life.
19 Better to be of a humble spirit with the lowly, Than to divide the [g]spoil with the proud. Blessed are the poor in Spirit, is one that is certainly not week, but dependent upon the Lord, so we do not think we are better than anyone else. The Church is full of people that need more of the Lord, so they can share with others Gods Spirit of love. That is the reason it is so refreshing to see Revival around the world, such as we have never seen among our Youth spreading to all generations. God wants the world to see, He is still the answer to all our problems with being deceived by Satan’s enlighten spirit of addiction. Wages of sin is still death. Lord help us to see lawlessness is death for we are running away from law and order!
20 He who heeds the word wisely will find good,
And whoever trusts in the Lord, happy is he. Thank the Lord He created us to be of goodwill and peace so we can become more and more like the Lord every passing moment of the Day. That is what we are seeing today in many people in the Churches to day that have a love for doing right by being good
21 The wise in heart will be called prudent,
And sweetness of the lips increases learning. Prudent is a mark of wisdom or judiciousness, shrewd in the Management of Practical affairs. To see ahead, foresee something that is real. We see and know without a doubt God is real and going to bless us in what is promised to His own! The Church should be getting wiser in seeing the truth than anytime in our lives, as the truth is now a lie and a lie is now the truth, it seems. Lord help us to see we do not learn from history’s past, but are getting lawless more and more, the closer we get to the resurrection. Truth is needed to day and it is still mediating upon the word of God getting connected to the vine; Jesus so we are empowered to know, understand and have the knowledge to have wisdom to know the difference between right and wrong.
22 Understanding is a wellspring of life to him who has it.
But the correction of fools is folly. Understanding is having the ability to do what is right with the abundance of life God has made available to those who have been corrected by doing wrong and learning it is not wise to be a fool. We are seeing more foolishness today than any time in history and need the water of life to give us victory as we are being corrected by our foolishness. Let’s never run away from law and order but run to what is right so we do not get hurt in any way.
23 The heart of the wise teaches his mouth,
And adds learning to his lips. Thank the Lord for learning how to become wise in what we have learned, so we are able to teach other the truth of the way and life that is ours as we abide in the Vine; Jesus to produce goodwill and peace to all we meet so we can pray for or enemies to become like the Lord as well.
24 Pleasant words are like a honeycomb,
Sweetness to the soul and health to the bones. Thank the Lord for honey that is the rock that is higher than anyone. Jesus Christ is that honey in the rock for when we abide in the Lord we are living in the Honey of the Rock that is higher than I. A honeycomb is made by man for bees to bring nectar into it, to form honey and as follower of the Lord, He made us to go out and pollinate Gods flowers and let God preform the miracle of producing honey. Again we can’t but God can do above what we can think!
25 There is a way that seems right to a man,
But its end is the way of death. Our world is full of people that want others to do what is right, but can’t for they have not given up their rights for Gods way, truth and life doing His will, but doing all our way giving us addiction rather than Gods will!
26 The person who labors, labors for himself,
For his hungry mouth drives him on. We are seeing labor needed to day as never before as people have not wanted to work, but live off of Government or some one else. We need to be laboring or working in the Kingdom of God, so we are a blessing to self and others. Look at homelessness today is the result of lawlessness caused by bitterness’s lust for control of selfishness. People do not want to be a blessing, but like draining someone else. So here in the last days we ae seeing an increase in brutality of lawless activities.  
27 [h]An ungodly man digs up evil,
And it is on his lips like a burning fire. 
And it is on his lips like a burning fire. We are seeing our world controlled by angry men and it is causing fear such as our world has never seen before. Evil is getting it’s way for people are not accepting the Lord’s will, truth and Iife, but falling into the trap of selfishness.
28 A perverse man sows strife,
And a whisperer separates the best of friends. A perverse man,   is a person’s actions showing a deliberate and obstinate desire to be have in a way that is unreasonable, or unacceptable, often in spite of the consequences, being morally wrong in principle or practice. We are seeing this with the amount of people engaged. With lawlessness separating them for what God created for us all!
29 A violent man entices his neighbor,
And leads him in a way that is not good. We have seen this all throughout history as people want to do what they want Satan to addict them to and it has never been good since Eve gave what Satan said would make her like God. What a lie. For now we are all;  born sinners in need of forgiveness by the love, mercy and grace of the Lord dying that we might live being connected to the vine; Jesus.
30 He winks his eye to devise perverse things;
He [i]purses his lips and brings about evil. This is the character of perverse people for they enjoy whatever they are doing regardless of who they hurt. This is becoming reality as we are seeing not end to lawlessness in all areas today in Government, Religion and Economic.
31 The silver-haired head is a crown of glory,
If it is found in the way of righteousness. Thank the Lord for maturity of know right from wrong, so we can have fellowship with one, another building up one another in the ways of the Lord, so our reward at death is life forever more, as we are doing what is right before all.    
32 He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty,
And he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city. Thank the Lord anger is our best weapon in fighting evil that wants to destroy us. When. we lose our anger we are destroy what God created us with and that is the ability to talk and solve our differences so we become and united force as a body God created for our good. Anger is given by God so we can protect ourselves from lawlessness that is going on today around the world. 
33 The lot is cast into the lap, But its every decision is from the Lord. Matthew Henry comments on this verse is; “The divine Providence orders and directs those things which to us are perfectly casual and fortuitous. Nothing comes to pass by chance, nor is an event determined by a blind fortune, but everything by the will and counsel of God. What man has neither eye nor hand in God is intimately concerned in. 2. When solemn appeals are made to Providence by the casting of lots, for the deciding of that matter of moment which could not otherwise be at all, or not so well, decided, God must be eyed in it, by prayer, that it may be disposed aright (Give a perfect lot,1 Sam. 14:41;Acts 1:24
1 Samuel 14:41
New King James Version
41 Therefore Saul said to the Lord God of Israel, Givea]">[a] a perfect lot. So Saul and Jonathan were taken, but the people escaped.The English Translation says, So with Why do You not answer Your servant today? If the injustice is with me or Jonathan my son, O Lord God of Israel, give proof; and if You say it is with Your people Israel, give holiness.
Acts 1:24
New King James Version
24 And they prayed and said, You, O Lord, who know the hearts of all, show which of these two You have chosen.) and by acquiescing in it when it is disposed, being satisfied that the hand of God is in it and that hand directed by infinite wisdom. All the disposals of Providence concerning our affairs we must look upon to be the directing of our lot, the determining of what we referred to God, and must be reconciled to them accordingly.
“This is a reason. We take a vote today to determine who is our leader and Lord help us to base who we vote for on Christian principle so we can achieve our potential in every area of life. “
