If you are reading with me, today we are on Proverbs 7. (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 7
Using the SOAP devotional method, here’s what I heard this time…
Scripture: Proverbs 7:3 & 12
bind them on your fingers;
write them on the tablet of your heart.
Proverbs 7: 12:
now in the street, now in the market,
and at every corner she lies in wait
Keep my teachings in your heart and on your mind. Distractions and temptations are everywhere.
I think God is reminding me here that temptations and distractions are everywhere. Because of that, I need to be on guard, seeking wisdom and holding His Word in my heart.
Keeping up with a daily devotional plan is a great way to prepare and keep His Word where it needs to be. I must keep this up.
Lord, thank you for offering this simple reading of the Proverbs to me. Thank you for offering your Word to me so that I can fill up on wisdom and your teachings. Guide me in staying in your Word and guide me in calling your Word to mind when I am tempted to do the things which are not the best for me. I love you, God. I want to follow you alone. Thank you for your reassurance and guidance.
Here is what I have heard in the past when reading Proverbs this way and using SOAP:
