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.

Windy Messages

(Psa 104:4 NAS77) He makes the winds His messengers, Flaming fire His ministers.

(Proverbs 26 also read)

The NASB is different from the KJV.

(Psa 104:4 KJV)  Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire:
The difference is a matter of choice.  “Winds” (7307) is “spirits” in the KJV and ruach in Hebrew.  Both words are common translations in both versions.  The same with “messengers” (4397) and “angels”.  I like the NASB today because it reminds me of my morning walks and how the wind blowing brings praise to my heart.  It is as if God is using the breeze to speak to me.

This entire Psalm is full of poetic language.  It is almost totally figurative.  It is inspiring, or it could be if we let it.

So?  Look around as you move through the world.  Look for the beauty.  It could be a bit of grass pushing up through a crack in the concrete or it could be a forest of giant redwoods.  Look for the hand of God and I am betting you will find it.
