IN JULY OF THIS 2020 YEAR, THE LORD GAVE ME A PROVERBS JOURNAL THAT ALLOWED ME TO READ A CHAPTER EACH DAY, AND THEN NOTE FROM THAT READING. BELOW WILL BE A LINK TO THE CHAPTER FOR EACH DAY, MY NOTES FOR THAT CHAPTER, AND SOME DAYS POETRY THAT HIS WORD INSPIRED ME TO WRITE AS WELL. IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL AND STRENGTHENING JOURNEY.
THANKS GOD FOR THE MOMENTS! I LOVE YOU!
Proverbs, Chapter 30 (Click here to read for better understanding of the connection between the scripture and the notes they inspired below.)
Good afternoon, Lord. How are You? I pray You are blessed and smiling. I’m sorry if I disappointed You in not getting You read first. Or rather, I think I did read, got to thinking, and fell asleep. Or was it I read, got to thinking, but had to leave so quickly to the doctor’s office for Bobby’s doctor, or Sandra’s errand, or Bobby’s home health care. I’m sorry that I can’t remember too well. My days run together. And the personal issues with my health are so overwhelming. I’m just not doing good lately.
Thank You for every way You help me, for every moment of patience, for understanding, for long suffering, for mercy, for grace, for Jesus, and for everything about You! I love You! No matter what!
Proverbs 30 is the words of Agur. He and I have some similarities. So often I had more “something horrible” than I cared for, and I knew I did not have the understanding some people did, but I did not care because I felt like I didn’t understand people anyway. I knew I did not have wisdom or knowledge of the Holy.
I love his honesty, and am fond of a sensing I felt with him being fond of You, and You with him for that honesty and humility. Especially considering his questions that show awareness, awestruck, and respect of You. I love how he says You hold the wind in Your fists, that You have bound the waters in a garment! He even knows Jesus! Maybe not by name, but he knows him. And he knows Your word is pure, and that You are a shield to them that trust You.
He wisely warns against adding to Your word. He hated vanity and lies. He doesn’t want to be rich so as not to be so full and nourished as to deny You, nor does he want to be poor so that he will not steal, or take Your name in vain. Again such honesty.
Accusing a servant to his master is not wise because he may love the servant so much that he will call you a liar and curse you, and say you are guilty. He speaks on the generation that is evil to their parents, thinks they are right in their own eyes, and filled with evil ways. And gives so much wisdom but You have shortened the pages for today’s study. You have brought me comfort today through Agur. Reminding of my beautiful relationship with You from the beginning. Thank You for loving me so faithfully.
