If you are reading with me, today we are on Proverbs 8. (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 8
Using the SOAP devotional method, here’s what I heard this time…
Scripture: Proverbs 8:34
Blessed is the one who listens to me,
watching daily at my gates,
waiting beside my doors.
Those who seek the Lord’s wisdom actively will be blessed.
Seeking the Lord’s wisdom daily is an easy thing to do, and yet it is also an easy thing to let slip, if you are not determined to do it.
Here the Lord promises blessings to those who actively seek Him. Seeking Him is as simple as committing to daily Bible reading, reflection and prayer. He gave us His Word to read. He gave us all the time we have, it is up to us what to do with that time.
He wants to give us the good stuff. All we need to do is seek Him and listen.
This week I have definitely been better at seeking and listening than I have in awhile. It has been one crazy busy week. I have no doubt that much of that craziness is the result of his blessings. I need to keep moving on His path, listening to His guidance to responding in the ways He knows are best.
He will bless us if we listen and follow His lead. Today’s passage again reminds us of that.
Thank you for staying true to your Word, offering wisdom and blessings should we seek them from you.
Thank you for the wonderful reminders and assurance this week, and again today, that seeking you will bring blessings and goodness in my life. I certainly have seen that.
I want good things to be in my life. I want your blessings. I will continue to watch daily at your gates and wait beside your doors by reading your Word, reflecting on your Word, and praying to you to gain insight and favor. Thank you for making that so easy to do by giving us your Word in the Bible.
Thank you so much for this promise, yet again.
I love you.
