Wisdom is the magnet that draws you close. If you seek Me, I will come to you and, just as a magnet draws, wisdom draws. Just as the two draw together–the closer you come–the stronger the draw becomes. When you come very close, the two lock together as one. It would take your determined force to pull us apart.
“Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward being; therefore teach me wisdom in my secret heart.” Psalms 51:6
Lock in to My Presence
Seek My Wisdom; you have found Me.
“I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently find me.” Proverbs 8:17
Now view that magnet again. When it is turned around as opposing, you cannot make it connect. The closer they become, the more you feel the force opposing. So it is with evil, I cannot draw to it, and evil cannot cling to Me.
“The Lord is a stronghold to him whose way is upright, but destruction to evildoers.” Proverbs 10:29
I have no connection with the devil,
and he has no attachment to Me.
Do you see now that I AM not the author, creator, of anything evil in your life? All that clings to Me is good. All that I AM is good! Cling to Me and you shall find, then, that you are wise for…
“God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are, so that no human being might boast in the presence of God.

“–Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. Or do you suppose it is vain that the scripture says, ‘He yearns jealously over the Spirit which he has made to dwell in us’? But he gives more grace; therefore it says, ‘God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.’ Submit yourselves therefore to God and he will draw near to you. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and he will draw near to you.” James 4:4-8a
“For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding; he stores up sound wisdom for the upright; he is a shield to those who walk in integrity, guarding the paths of justice and preserving the way of his saints. Then you will understand righteousness and justice and equity, every good path; for wisdom will come into your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul.–” Proverbs 2:6-10
“And now, my sons, listen to me; happy are those who keep my ways. Hear instruction and be wise, and do not neglect it. Happy is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my gates, waiting beside my doors. For he who finds me finds life and obtains favor from the Lord; but he who misses me injures himself; all who hate me love death.” Proverbs 8:32-36
