I give God praise for working through me in these last five months of reading and studying Proverbs. I have gained so much knowledge and wisdom from each passage of scripture. Reading these chapters has been a blessing to my life. The things that God has taught me will forever be written in my heart. In all this, I know that it was the Holy Spirit that led me to write devotionals on each chapter. It is my prayer that people were lifted up to follow the Lord Jesus, by reading each message. If there was wisdom gained, it came from God and not myself. I was only used a willing vessel to preach the gospel. May the Lord bless you as you continue to study the Bible daily and to pray often. May the Lord open your eyes as He has done for me. God bless you all.

Lord God, we come to You today with thanks and a desire to learn more of You. We know that what we learn in this life does not hold a candle to what You can teach us. Your words give us breath and helps us through our day. Thank You for giving us understanding, as we read the Bible. It is You, God, that helps Your words fly off the pages, in order to pierce our hearts. We would still be stumbling through life if You did not give us direction. And God we are so grateful for the knowledge that You give us daily. I am stronger when Your Words are imprinted upon on my heart. And best of all, what You teach me, helps me grow in the faith. As I do as You say, my love for You and my neighbor increases. Doing as You command is the best feeling that I could ever get. And the reason is, in those moments, You are dwelling inside of me. I am not comfortless for Your presence has come over me and given me peace. I have learned God that nothing in this world is greater than Your love. And where do I find this love but by reading the Bible, praying and doing as it says. This is true love and You have shown this to me. Thank You Lord. I am grateful to have You abide in me. I am stronger every day that You are there. I love You. Amen.

The Comforter

When Jesus was about to leave this earthly life, He explained to His disciples that He would always be with them.

Ecclesiastes 4:1 (KJV)
1 So I returned, and considered all the oppressions that are done under the sun: and behold the tears of such as were oppressed, and they had no comforter; and on the side of their oppressors there was power; but they had no comforter.

Romans 10:9-11 (KJV)
9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

Oh Lord Jesus, You are God and I praise Your holy name. You are our great creator and all things were made by Your hands. We are beautifully made by You, God. You are so glorious in every way. Even all the heavens declare that You are Lord of all. There is no one like You, God. I am in awe just thinking of You and everything You have done for my life. To think that I am watched over by You, helps me know that I am loved and cared for. You know my every need and keep me safe. I also know that You are my judge. And even before that wonderful day that I will finally see You in person, I know that You are there for me now. Yes, You have rescued me from the pains of this life. All my sorrows and regret is over for Your blood as covered me. Where there was no hope for me, while in this world, You have snatched me out of the clutches of the devil and found compassion for my soul. I may have thought that I was to wicked for Your forgiveness but You showed up, nonetheless, and forgave me of all my sins. I am a new man before of Your mercy. Thank You God for this new life. I am honored to serve You, my King. I love You and praise You Lord. Amen.

Jesus Is God

The Bible is clear that Jesus is God and also our judge and creator. He is our Lord God and deserves our praise and worship.

Nehemiah 9:6,7 (KJV)
6 Thou, even thou, art Lord alone; thou hast made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth, and all things that are therein, the seas, and all that is therein, and thou preservest them all; and the host of heaven worshippeth thee.
7 Thou art the Lord the God, who didst choose Abram, and broughtest him forth out of Ur of the Chaldees, and gavest him the name of Abraham;

# Permanent link to Nehemiah 9:6,7
God of the heavens, we come before You and worship You now. We know that judgement is in Your hands for You our judge. Everything we have ever done is known before You. Our lives are an open slate to you. For this, we ask that You to cleanse our lives from all sin. May we no longer be spotted by the things of this world but be cleansed by Your blood. We do not wish to live apart from You now and especially after death. We hope to go on from this life and forever praise You and lift up Your name on high. We love You above all else and could never think of a day without You in our lives. You give us meaning, for the life we live. The knowledge You give is life saving and has freed us from our bondage. If we are different now, it is because of Your grace. You have brought us to this point in our lives and for this, we give You thanks. All the glory goes to You God. You made us who we are today and are forever grateful. Never let us escape Your presence now or forever. One day, as our life comes to an end, call our names Lord and lead us into Your heavenly abode. We want to be with You. Our lives are complete with You in it. You are our first love and never want to leave You again. I love You. Amen.

The Place Of Judgement

As for those people that have either rejected the Lord Jesus in their lives or didn’t show fruits of their faith, they will have a very different outcome, come judgement day.

Ecclesiastes 3:16,17 (KJV)
16 And moreover I saw under the sun the place of judgment, that wickedness was there; and the place of righteousness, that iniquity was there.
17 I said in mine heart, God shall judge the righteous and the wicked: for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work.

Ecclesiastes 3:14,15 (KJV)
14 I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him.
15 That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past.

Lord God, we come before You now in praise and rejoicing. We know that this life is much better off with You in our lives. There is comfort in the storms of life. There is peace when hard times come our way. There is mercy when we repent and choose to change our ways. We have direction in this life, that we may stay the course and not be led astray. Even when temptation comes, we are overcomers, that we may not fall. You keep us going strong. Our faith is revitalized each day in prayer. Our understanding of what is right and what is wrong is made known through the words of the Bible. Yes, Your Words are a lamp unto our feet. There is nothing like Your knowledge and understanding. When Your presence is near, my eyes are opened that I might learn. Even this life make sense when You have a hand in it. We understand where we are now and where You want to take us. So call us now, for we are all in. Lead us by the hand and show the way. Teach us Your commands. Help us become a faithful follower of You, till the end of our lives. Even till the end, when we have ran our course, may Your Name be on our lips. That we may one day see You in Your matchless glory. It will be wonderful to, one day, come unto You and embrace You, God. You are my King and I will forever praise Your Holy Name. I love You. Amen.

Ecclesiastes 3:10,11 (KJV)
10 I have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it.
11 He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.

# Permanent link to Ecclesiastes 3:10,11
Oh Lord, I pray for the lost and the broken hearted. I know that so many people are living a life apart from You, Jesus, and it saddens me to the core. When I go on the streets and see so many people living their own lives and don't want to hear Your message, this is heart breaking. However, I know that there is always somebody that is waiting and ready for Your message of hope. For You are preparing them. I am strengthened each time I can go out and find a person such as this that is ready to receive You, Jesus, into their lives. I pray that more people, each and every day, will discover You. May the darkness be scattered and Your light come inside of them. Come into their hearts and break those chains of addiction. Bring them out of a life of bondage and into Your love. May they experience Your joy that never ends. I know that what You have done for my life, You can do for anyone. As I was a wicked and vial sinner and You had compassion upon me, anyone can be forgiven. There is no one that is apart from Your love. You are our healer and can fix any problem in a person's life. I trust in You, Lord. I love You. Amen.

Ecclesiastes 2:26 (KJV)
26 For God giveth to a man that is good in his sight wisdom, and knowledge, and joy: but to the sinner he giveth travail, to gather and to heap up, that he may give to him that is good before God. This also is vanity and vexation of spirit.

Daily Prayer:
Oh Lord, I know that my heart is still weak, when I forget to seek You and to pray. Temptations come and take me under, that I might sin. Even my passions for the things of this world is stronger when Your words are not in my heart. I forget how great is Your love, when my heart is looking to be fulfilled by the lusts of the flesh. Surely, my fulfillment is far less then when I have You in my life. Because I had distanced myself, like this in the past, I gave myself over to the things of this world. What I could gain and do was far greater than anything else. Yes, Lord, I was happy for a time, because of this, but at the same time my family suffered. Because I had to be fulfilled, they took a back seat. Oh how sorry I am for this wicked life of mine. I know that I was trapped in vanity and didn't even realize it. And what did it do for me, nothing. I was lost without You, Jesus. I am so grateful that You took me from a life like this. Thank You for coming into my life and casting out all the darkness. I was blind but can now see. I am so grateful for Your mercy. How sweet is Your forgiveness and love. May others that are lost also be restored and experience Your love. I trust in You, Lord. I love You. Amen.
