Introduction to Proverbs

January 2, 2020
    As we begin this new Study in the Book of Proverbs, or with any study of God’s Word, It is important to understand, that for the believer in Christ, this is not like any other study. Normally, when you read another book, you have to read the words on the page, and then in your mind try to imagine what the author was saying. With God’s Word however, if you know Christ as your Saviour, you then have the Holy Spirit residing in you. Which also means, you have the author of this book Residing in you. We read in:
 2 Peter 1:20-21 
 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. 

      The same Holy Spirit, who moved the writers of this book to originally write these words, also resides in your heart today. You do not have to imagine what the author meant, just ask Him.  

    Please take a few moments every day to pray for God’s wisdom before reading. The Holy Spirit will help you in understanding the book He has written. I have for years now prayed a simple prayer from my heart to God, using God’s own words prior to my study of His Word. I pray;
 Psalm 119:18
Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold 
wondrous things out of thy law.
      I have recently begun to add this verse as well;
Psalm 143:10 
Teach me to do thy will; 
for thou art my God: thy spirit is good; 
lead me into the land of uprightness.

      May God bless your studies as you are Living In His Word.
