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.

April Trust Day

(Psa 13:5 KJV)  But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation.

(Proverbs 1 also read)

How is your day going?  Is it too early to know?  David was having a bad one.  I don’t find that surprising.  His days of struggle came often even though he was a man after God’s own heart.  Since none of us come closer to that title than David, it would seem that his struggles tell us we can expect to struggle too.

There is that in this chapter.  

Never forget to read verse 5 after the first four.  Here is where David shows how he is a man after God’s own heart.  Notice he did not call on the law or any of the great things he had done.  What he called on was God’s “lovingkindness” (2617a) [chesed].  You have heard me carrying on about this word before.  Don’t ever forget it.  It is why we can “rejoice” (1523).

So?  Good day?  Bad day?  God is there for both of them and will get you through.
