Repetition. Again. Do I really need to be reminded in 24 hours? Yesterday I was meditating on this verse,
(PRO 4:20 NASB) My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings.Notice that we have the same two verbs today. Is it coincidence or is the Lord trying to get my attention? Someone wiser than I once said that it is amazing how often coincidence pops up when the Lord is involved.
So the question comes up again, am I paying attention? I would like to say, “Are you paying attention” but that is just ignoring the whole purpose of studying Proverbs. This morning I was listening to Alistair Begg. He was talking about God in the ordinary and focusing on how everything seemed to be going wrong for Ruth and Naomi. Yet God was working behind he scenes.
So? I think we need to be reminded that God is working behind the scenes. When the curtain is closed is the time that most of the work is done on stage.
