Introduction to Proverbs
January 3, 2024
Proverbs 22:17-19 Bow down thine ear, and hear the words of the wise, and apply thine heart unto my knowledge. For it is a pleasant thing if thou keep them within thee; they shall withal be fitted in thy lips. That thy trust may be in the LORD, I have made known to thee this day, even to thee.
OUTLOOK ON THE IN BOOK:
As we delve into the Book of Proverbs, taking it one small segment at a time, day after day, week after week, throughout the coming year, it is my prayer that God will use this to assist you in leading a blessed life and walking with Him. I firmly believe, based on my own experience, that when we follow God’s guidance, life is significantly better.
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.
THE WORD WALKING IN ME:
Please set aside a few moments every day to pray for God’s wisdom before you begin reading. The Holy Spirit will assist you in comprehending the book He has authored. For years, I have been offering a heartfelt prayer to God, using His own words, before I delve into His Word. My prayer goes like this:
Open thou mine eyes,
that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.
I have recently begun to add this verse as well.
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.
