An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

Don’t Play Ignorant

(Proverbs 3:5-6 KJV)  Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.  In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

We had a guest speaker at church today.  His name was Don Sunukjian and he spoke from Proverbs.  It was a great challenge to trust in God.

He made one point that I thought was good and I wanted to share it before it disappeared into long term memory.  He said that this verse does not refer to the times when we don’t know what to do and choose to trust in God.  He made the point that this refers to the times where we know what God wants us to do, but we don’t see how that route will ever work.  He pointed out that verse 5 says that we have an understanding.  We know what we want and we know it is ours. 

He challenged us to make the decision to trust and obey in those times when our world, our culture and even or friends tell us to ignore God.

Grace and Peace.

Charles Stanley had a similar message recently.

Thanks for the heads up. I haven't listened to Stanley in years although my wife has mentioned him a few times. I don't watch TV and my I-pod has replaced the radio. I will check and see if he has podcasts available.

Grace and Peace
