If you are reading with me, today we are on Proverbs 19. (Remembering what to read in the Proverbs is as easy as remembering the day’s date when you read them with me.) That being said:
Today’s Reading: Proverbs 19
Using the SOAP devotional method, here’s what I heard this time…
Scripture: Proverbs 19:2
Desire without knowledge is not good
and whoever makes haste with his feet misses his way.
Take the time to learn what you need to learn before you take action.
This one is so very applicable to something I experienced last night in a a few business communications that I really had to laugh and be amazed as I read it.
I felt ready to jump into something. I wanted to move forward, yet one of my advisors suggested we stop, meet with others and practice before moving full speed ahead. The plans to move ahead are still there, and will still happen very soon, but not without filling up on a bit more wisdom first.
This reminder from God could not have come at a more appropriate time.
Father God, amaze me.
Thank you for this reminder that came at the exact appropriate time.
I will calm down, fill up on wisdom and then move forward when ready. And how much better I will be when I do take those steps.
I love you, God. You really do rock. Your Word is relevant always.
Here is what I have heard in the past when reading Proverbs this way and using SOAP:
- His Plans Should Trump Mine (Proverbs 19:21)
- Have Wisdom and Be Patient (Proverbs 19:11)
- God’s Focused Plan vs. My Multifaceted One (Proverbs 19:21)
