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.

Make God’s Day

(Pro 8:31 KJV) Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons of men.

Why did God create the universe?  Even more specific, why did God create man?  I have heard a lot of different ideas.  Here it implies that God enjoys us.  Yes, I know it is Wisdom speaking but the implication is there.

Does God enjoy our rebellion and sin?  Obviously not but keep in mind there are still those who repent and walk in righteousness and seek out His fellowship.  That is what worship involves.  I think it is the primary purpose of prayer.  God rejoices when we commune with Him.

So?  Make God’s day.  If you look around and see nothing but sin and selfishness then it is up to you to provide that glimmer that may keep Him from turning the earth into a cinder.  He promised not to flood us again.  I don’t think that applies to lightning or asteroids.
