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.

Cliff Hangers

(Pro 28:18 KJV)  Whoso walketh uprightly shall be saved: but he that is perverse in his ways shall fall at once.

I read this and get a vision of Wiley Coyote as he rides a rocket sled, catches up with Road Runner and shoots past him as the bird steps aside.  Wiley finds himself suspended in mid air with no support and suddenly he starts his “fall” (5307) “all at once” (259).

Most of us are not like the road runner, cruising through life with a stupid smile on our face, knowing that the producers of the cartoon have destined us to survival and triumph.  I for one would have my moments of panic, or should I say, have had my moments of panic.  One example of that is the omnipresent propaganda about the China Virus that has people living in fear, constantly looking over their shoulders and trembling at the thought of shaking hands.  In spite of my skepticism I keep forgetting that God provided me with a marvelous immune system that is more effective than any vaccine and my guardian Angel is on the job.  

So?  Live righteously and expect that it makes a difference.  God may allow stumbling blocks and hard times but He will make sure of the final score.  Acme doesn’t have a chance.
