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.

 Another First and Last

(Psa 13:1 KJV)  To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. How long wilt thou forget me, O LORD? for ever? how long wilt thou hide thy face from me?
(Psa 13:6 KJV)  I will sing unto the LORD, because he hath dealt bountifully with me.

(Proverbs 10 also read)

Notice the contrast that David is expressing.  If you only read verse 1 you would start your day with a sense of desperation.  David started off as if he felt God had abandoned him.  Have you ever been there?  You are in good company.  This honesty is one of the strong points of reading the Bible and getting in touch with the God is reveals to us.

David’s day finishes on a different note than it begins.  Part of that is rooted in his honesty with God.  The other part is the result of the faithfulness of God.

So?  God can speak to us best when we are open with, and to, Him.  Let it all out.  If you need to really cry out it might be best to be alone.  Others may not understand your pain as much as God does.  May your day always finish on verse 6.
