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.

(Pro 3:5 KJV) Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

"Understanding" (998) ultimately must be based on God's view of things, not on ours.  We are forced into mystery here.  Some truth we will see.  Some truth is currently beyond us.  I think of what it is like living with an inquisitive toddler in the house.  She wants to examine everything.  Sometimes I tell her “no” because I know if she opens a drawer she will see the tissue and decide that she needs to blow here nose, again and again.  Her understanding makes it a priority.  Other times I might forbid a sharp knife to her because I know what it can do and she doesn’t have a clue.

So?  Face it.  There are many times in life when we don’t have a clue.  This can be when we can’t see a clear choice.  It can also be when a resounding “no” is to save us from unseen danger.
