Happy Monday beautiful people! It’s time to put on your walking shoes and join me on this journey of Proverbs. The month of November is on the horizon and God has great things in-store for you and I both. However, before we receive those glorious gifts we must first be willing to take heed and listen to what He has to say.
The book of Proverbs is credited by Solomon in chapters 1-29 and Agur and Lemuel in the last two chapters 30:1; 31:1. In the book,readers are provided with a lifestyle guide on how to live life as a holy, acceptable beings in Christ.In addition, it sheds light on what changes can be made that will lead one to eternal life in heaven.
Although, Proverbs hits on a slue of topics from relationships, emotions, traits and more, the main topics that I will showcase on my blog will be: knowledge, wisdom and understanding. Starting tomorrow I will post verses that focus on those specific topics and explain in-depth if need be.
Before reading the Word, be sure to ask God to show you the message behind the text and reveal to you what He wants you to know in Proverbs. Since Proverbs is written as Hebrew poetry, the first line frequently showcases imagery and the second line complements or contrasts the thought of the first line. When reading each proverb not only should you compare the second phrase with the first phrase but with the entire Word of God. Overall, be sure to set aside 20 to 30 minutes of your day when you began the journey and truly let God lead you. Below is a quick view of what the book of Proverbs is ALL about. I can’t wait to begin this journey with you! Stay tuned!
