An encouragement … read, reflect, relish and respond to Proverbs!

Proverbs in the Bible is such a wonderful book! Filled with wise maxims sourced in a reverence for God and inspired by the Holy Spirit – divinely generated wisdom flowing out of godly reflection! Every year in my Bible reading I look forward to the practical insights they bring. I’m always better for reading, reflecting upon and responding to the “divine snippets” of Proverbs. Here is just a taste of the truths I encountered from Proverbs today… a potpourri of God inspired wisdom on a variety of subjects… I urge you, reflect, relish and respond to each one of them!

“The LORD will tear down the house of the proud…

“Evil plans are an abomination to the LORD…

“He who profits illicitly troubles his own house, but he who hates bribes will live.

“The heart of the righteous ponders how to answer, but the mouth of the wicked pours out evil things.

“The LORD is far from the wicked, but He hears the prayer of the righteous.

“He whose ear listens to the life-giving reproof will dwell among the wise.

“He who neglects discipline despises himself, but he who listens to reproof acquires understanding.

“The fear of the LORD brings instruction for wisdom.

“Before honor comes humility.”

(Taken from Proverbs 15:25-33 NASB)

There, that ought to keep you occupied for awhile! 😉 I’m still working on it!

Jesus, a wonderful help in time of need!

I’ve had some wonderful Christian friends over the years – some pastors who have been a tremendous help to me – some spiritual leaders I highly respect…

But there is no one like Jesus! He’s been the dearest friend to confide in, someone to encourage me and help in life’s greatest trials – a wonderful pastor – an understanding spiritual leader – and MORE! … so much MORE!!!

In my Bible reading during my time of “coffee with the Lord” the writer of Hebrews captured my sentiments perfectly…

“Since we have a great high priest… Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin. 16Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. (Hebrews 4:14-16 NASB)

I’m so thankful for Jesus this morning – this “Lord’s Day” morning! After awhile today, I’m going to gather in a house of worship and spend time with some wonderful fellow believers. Let me tell you, I really appreciate my Christian friends that I’ll meet there – my “brothers and sisters” in the family of God. I’m so grateful for a wonderful pastor who will share a challenging and uplifting message from God’s word. But more than anything else – or anyone else – I’m grateful for Jesus, my “Great High Priest!” He’s everything I need! And I intend to approach His “throne of grace” with confidence and I know I’ll find the help I need! He understands! And He’s able!
