(Proverbs 7:24 KJV) Hearken unto me now therefore, O ye children, and attend to the words of my mouth.
This verse is actually a promise. It doesn’t read that way. It seems more like a command or an admonition. It is those things, but it is also a word of hope. If you consider the context you find this set in the middle of warnings and a story of sin. In the midst of that is a reminder to stop and listen to what God is trying to say to you.
God has to be pushed a long way before He stops reaching out to bring us back. If we give him the slightest opening He will try to get the word to us. One reason it is important to read the Bible daily is to give Him that crack. The hope is that each day of considering the word there will be a message for the day. We all know that there are days when all we have are black marks on a page that our eyes pass over. The benefit of the habit is that when you are at that one verse of life in the midst of a chapter of defeat, God can speak to you.
So? I hope today has no desperate moments for you. I hope things are going well. Rest assured that if they are not, God has a word of hope for you.
