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.

(Psa 143:5 KJV)  I remember the days of old; I meditate on all thy works; I muse on the work of thy hands.

(Proverbs 30 also read)

David is focused on worship.  He is in prayer and confession.  In this verse he is looking back and meditating.  What got my attention was the word “muse” (7878).  If this were a noun and capitalized it would refer to one of the Greek gods involving the arts.  That is not the meaning here.  As I looked in my references it seems to have the idea of talking to yourself, or, I would assume, a kind of familiar talk with God.

I think I muse a lot when I am alone.  This is not like the formal prayers we hear from the pulpit.  It is more the quiet conversations we would have with a good friend when the children are asleep.

So?  Share your heart with God.  Remind Him of your dreams.  He already knows but it might be good for us to repeat them out loud.
