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.

(Psa 55:16 KJV)  As for me, I will call upon God; and the LORD shall save me.

Here we are in the middle of the book of Psalms.  All right, you are a legalist.  We are one-third of the way through.  Are we reading about the law?  Are we getting doom and gloom from one of the prophets?  Are we trying to figure out if Revelation is literal or figurative?  None of the above.  We are being reminded about the need to be saved.

While it might seem safe to think David is just talking about being pulled out of a battle or palace intrigue if you look in the previous verse he is addressing concerns about death and hell.  I would assume that you once had concerns about that, maybe more than once.  I would hope you trusted in Jesus and got it settled.  If not, there is never a better time than now.

So?  So many truths bring different responses.  When I read this I rejoice.  At one time in life it confronted me with the awareness of my eternal destiny.  Read and consider.  Rejoice, weep or call.
