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.

Dare to Be a Damsel

(Pro 9:3 KJV)  She hath sent forth her maidens: she crieth upon the highest places of the city,

Who are these “maidens” (5291)?  What is the symbolism here?  Just as Wisdom is personified, so also are the servants of wisdom.  With apologies to the macho dudes out there, these damsels are those of us who live as witnesses to the Living God. 

When personified, wisdom could only be at one place.  She had to send out people with the invitations.  When incarnated, Jesus could only be one place.  He told his “maidens” that they would be His voice and messengers.
(Act 1:8 KJV)  But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
Jesus calls.  The Holy Spirit works.  Often that call and work are done through us who have committed ourselves to be His servants.

So?  At some point we will move out into the waiting world.  We are sent with an invitation.  It will express itself many ways but it will be expressed through those who are witnesses.  Have a powerful day.
