Proverbs 21 9-21-18

God has invited us to walk with Him. To take that invitation lightly is to hold our very salvation in contempt!

[1] The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD; he directs it like a watercourse wherever he pleases.

The way I see it, we have a choice to be a willing party or an unwilling/unwitting party to what God is doing. Staying close to Him, hanging on His every word, emulating Him in character–He will include us in His plans! What joy we feel, what peace we have when God talks to us! It is, indeed, a privilege.

We have this passage from earlier this month:

Proverbs 8:33-35 Listen to my instruction and be wise; do not ignore it. [34] Blessed is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my doors, waiting at my doorway. [35] For whoever finds me finds life and receives favor from the LORD.

Jesus said it like this:

Matthew 7:24-27 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. [25] The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.”

Mary got it!

Luke 10:39 She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said.

Let’s sit at Jesus’ feet today; let’s be included in what God is doing. Be part of His process. Read, pray, listen, & obey!
