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.
