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.

(Pro 3:20 KJV)  By his knowledge the depths are broken up, and the clouds drop down the dew.

Here in the middle of a discussion of wisdom is a reminder about creation, about the power of God and that He was here at the beginning.  God has a way of sneaking up on us and dumping a reminder of big truths.  How refreshing.

We need constant reminders.  We get so caught up in our schedules, the news and all the concerns of the world around us that we lose a bit of perspective.  Well, at least I do.  It is good once in awhile to pull over to the side of the road and look both ways.  I don’t care if you are in the mountains or in the dessert.  You could even be on a back road in Vietnam with 12 foot walls of bamboo on both sides.  I have been in all of them.  I little pause, a moment to look around and a hot line to heaven will remind you of who is in charge.

So?  It is kind of awesome to realize that you know the One who made all this.  It is humbling to think that He loved us enough to send Jesus to suffer and die for us.  Rejoice.
