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.

Memory Lane

(Psa 106:13 KJV)  They soon forgat his works; they waited not for his counsel:

(Proverbs 2 also read)

This is an indictment of us today as much as ancient Israel.  This statement follows a recounting of the miracles God had performed to get them safely out of Egypt and across the Red Sea.  Almost immediately they “forgot” (7911) what He had done.

How often have I drifted into worry and insecurity?  It seems to be a regular habit.  I think I am getting better at remembering but I still have a long way to go.  One of the things that helps is my daily worship where I spend time in thanksgiving.  Eventually my mind will wander to the past and the times God has provided, encouraged and strengthened.

So?  Walking by faith is sometimes a matter of memory, looking back and not just a matter of looking forward.  Just as God is involved in the history of Israel, He is involved with us.
