Day of Rest 1-22-12

“The magnet of mercy does not draw us so near to God as the cords of affliction.  When Absalom set Joab’s corn on fire, then he came running to Absalom (2 Sam. 14:30).  When God sets our worldly comforts on fire, then we run to Him, and make our peace with Him.  When the prodigal was pinched with want, then he returned home to his father (Luke 15:18).  When the dove could not find any rest for the sole of her foot, then she flew to the ark.  When God brings a deluge of affliction upon us, then we fly to the ark of Christ. Thus affliction makes us happy, in bringing us nearer to God.  Faith can make use of the waters of affliction, to cause us to swim faster to Christ.”  Thomas Watson, All Things for Good, p. 31

January: A Proverb a Day – Keeps Stupidity at Bay

Pro 2:1   My son, if you will receive my words And treasure my commandments within you,

Pro 2:2   Make your ear attentive to wisdom, Incline your heart to understanding;

Pro 2:3   For if you cry for discernment, Lift your voice for understanding;

Pro 2:4 If you seek her as silver And search for her as for hidden treasures;

Pro 2:5   Then you will discern the fear of the LORD And discover the knowledge of God.

Pro 2:6 For the LORD gives wisdom; From His mouth {come} knowledge and understanding.

Pro 2:7     He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; {He is} a shield to those who walk in integrity,

Pro 2:8 Guarding the paths of justice, And He preserves the way of His godly ones.

Pro 2:9 Then you will discern righteousness and justice And equity {and} every good course.

Pro 2:10 For wisdom will enter your heart And knowledge will be pleasant to your soul;

Pro 2:11 Discretion will guard you, Understanding will watch over you,

Pro 2:12 To deliver you from the way of evil, From the man who speaks perverse things;

Pro 2:13 From those who leave the paths of uprightness To walk in the ways of darkness;

Pro 2:14 Who delight in doing evil And rejoice in the perversity of evil;

Pro 2:15 Whose paths are crooked, And who are devious in their ways;

Pro 2:16 To deliver you from the strange woman, From the adulteress who flatters with her words;

Pro 2:17 That leaves the companion of her youth And forgets the covenant of her God;

Pro 2:18 For her house sinks down to death And her tracks {lead} to the dead;

Pro 2:19 None who go to her return again, Nor do they reach the paths of life.

Pro 2:20 So you will walk in the way of good men And keep to the paths of the righteous.

Pro 2:21 For the upright will live in the land And the blameless will remain in it;

Pro 2:22 But the wicked will be cut off from the land And the treacherous will be uprooted from it.
