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 95:10 KJV)  Forty years long was I grieved with this generation, and said, It is a people that do err in their heart, and they have not known my ways:

As I continue to think about patience, God speaks to me.  He reminds me of why the generation was wandering in the wilderness for 40 years.  They were wandering in the wilderness because they were afraid to go into the promised land.  They were worried.  They were not willing to trust.  As a result, they wandered.

As I look at the news and listen to what’s happening in the world, I see evil on a rampage.  I see death and destruction everywhere.  I see government forces out to destroy the people of the country.  I wonder when they’re coming for me.  At that point God slaps me upside the head and says “When have I ever let you down?”

So?  God continues to be patient with me.  I need to trust in him.  The future is in his hands just as the past was in his hands.
