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.

Just Wait

(Pro 24:15 KJV)  Lay not wait, O wicked man, against the dwelling of the righteous; spoil not his resting place:

When I see government leaders turning their backs on Israel I shake my head because God has promised He will respond to nations based on how they treat His people.  Here we have the same idea extended to all the “righteous” (6662).  If you are one of those people who don’t believe it is possible to be righteous then you have my sympathy.  Much of the Bible is meaningless to you.  This promise passes over your head.

If you are, or know, one of those who don’t believe there is a God you are in for a rude awakening.  God may have His reasons for delaying but He always delivers.  Here the promise is that He is watching the homes of the righteous and if you attack them your days are numbered.

So?  That should offer some of us a bit of comfort and to those who are out to get us a moment to pause and think.  God will not be mocked to His face or through His people.
