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.

Ears of Truth

(Proverbs 5:5 KJV)  Her feet go down to death; her steps take hold on hell.

There is a slight bit of hope in this verse if you are listening.  This is not a “you” verse but a “her” verse.  The one heading for “death” (4194) is not the “son” of verse 1 but the “strange woman” of verse 3, the one who is trying to get the son to ignore the teaching of his father.  Therein lies the hope.  Therein lies the need to listen to the right voice.

God is speaking.  He does it in many ways.  On rare occasions a person might actually seem to hear His voice.  It happened to me once.  Frequently He speaks when we are reading the Bible and a verse takes on new meaning for us.  A pastor can touch a chord in our hearts.  The Holy Spirit can bring something to mind. 

The problem is we don’t always want to listen.

So?  Make your own choices but keep in mind when you say, “I didn’t hear you” He isn’t your wife, He is your God.  He knows if the ears are true or not.
