The Proverbs of Solomon son of. David, king of Israel: 1: To learn wisdom and moral instruc-. 1 tn The Hebrew noun.
Proverbs offers human words or human wisdom as a vehicle for the divine Word. Linked to Solomon and other wise men, the book of Proverbs includes hundreds of short, clever sayings designed to teach every person how to live and act wisely. Each saying touches on a common area of life and shows us what kind of world we live in and what it looks like to live well before God and toward others. The wisdom in Proverbs is often described as a lady, but it's not an impersonal force. It's an attribute of God Himself. By fearing or respecting God and reading and obeying the wise, practical counsel found in this book, we develop the important skills and moral mindset we need to live successful, good and goodly lives in God's world.

Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully. The Lord is good, a Strength and Stronghold in the day of trouble; He knows recognizes, has knowledge of, and understands those who take refuge and trust in Him. Nahum 1: Isaiah Any verses that have been encouraging you lately? Share them in the comments below! He has been a full-time writer since and loves uncovering financial wisdom in the Bible as well as discovering the best tools and strategies to help you put more money in your pocket.
There is so much negative news. Everywhere I look it is fear. People are afraid of their jobs, their investments. He is the Ancient of Days. He will meet our needs.
In the words of the christian hip hop group. Ryan, I thought it was pretty refreshing myself — God is so much bigger than what is going on around us!
Hi Lacy, everyone of us is going through difficult times. I very much feel for you, since my relationship is kind of rocky, coupled with bad finances.. I feel very anxious about the future.. But hey, God is good. I remember reading somewhere that the higher the barriers that we face, the bigger the rewards.. Thank you so much for your website and posting. I have Isiah Thanks so much. God Bless you! Okay, God is meeting my needs, but I cannot get ahead. No money to go to school or start a business.
Unfortunately the Bible never promised that we would have a good life on earth… The Lord said that He would provide or NEEDS but He never said that He would make life easy if you trust in Him, infact he said that you would be persecuted. But my Mum always says to me, The Lord hires and fires, blesses and rewards, and holds you in the palm of His hands. He will never forsake you or leave you. Also there are verses in the Bible that mention that if you are a friend of the world than you are not basically the words are probably wrong a friend of God.
We are meant to be set apart from the way of the world, it doesnt mean we are better than it, it simply means that we have come to realise that we can no longer live without the help of our God, and we recognise that He is our King and our Lord and our Saviour, and therefore try and follow His ways. Going through the molding stage in life is difficult, and sometimes it can leave you feeling like God is not helping you, but when you look back later in life, you realise that The Lord has been there with you through every step of the way, and you are better for it.
Trials are not pleasant, but then again this life is not the life we are meant to enjoy. We are meant to count our blessings though and be thankful that the Lord blesses us so richly. Also, the trials are what bring us closer to trusting in God. Yet He is a King of kings and Lord of lords.
Not very many, so when they die they will have an eternity of suffering. We just need to focus on making it to Heaven-the eye on the goal. Gail — I love what you wrote!! Would you mind if I shared your comments with someone? Just remember — living for Him includes giving up your own desires and goals for His will. Explore other options as that may not be His plan for your life.
What if He needs you elsewhere? Use your talents and gifts and those were his blessing to you. Pray and then pray some more! I was amazed what happened to my relationship with God when my husband taught me to tithe and not let money drive our decisions.
It was a long hard lesson to learn! I learned to be responsible and live frugally and never been happier. God will guide you through if you let him! A- Admit you are a sinner B- Believe he is your one and only C- confess your sins! Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus christ.
I am really inspired by your message, I did not know about the ABC. Everyday with Lord is sweeter than the day before. I have learned one super important thing, and I hope you will learn it too. When we think and talk about God, we are talking about: We are to serve Him, not viceversa.
He is not a genie in a lamp to please us; we are to please Him. If you would take a moment to bow down and ask Him to forgive you for your arrogance, like I did too for my own arrogance, He is ever so merciful, and He will forgive you and prosper you. Those that are known by the Lord have a Mighty One of God as their Guard and Savior, even the Lord Jesus … yet, look and see with eyes open … these things are signposts for which we are commanded to look for and sound the alert and alarm … for the Day is at hand when that which is written in the scriptures of Truth will be done.
What He has said, will surely come about and there are times for comfort, indeed, even as He comforts us from within during this storm.
Yet there is also a time to blow the trumpet and sound the alarm … not another lullaby … but a blast from the horn. Speak His name, and He is with you. Yahshua has come, and is here and is coming shortly to take all those that belong to Him and of which He sees Himself within them.
These scriptures are really so much encouraging. Jesus is the beginning and the end. Yes, people look at the created and so blame luck but we look at the creator for our needs who is stable in his promises. I am seeking a job in the midst of these financial crisis but I believe I shall not be touched by the situations or circumstances.
And as a youth I am glad I am getting a revelation of Gods word as far as finance is concerned. I wanna be blessed to be a blessing.
It really broadened my understanding.
We are the sons of Jesus and by his precious blood even in the midst of the financial crises.. I have never doubted that God is my everything, but some times when things are quite in my home, I wonder. I will not set back and judge other peoples decisions, that is not my job nor do I want to do that. Their judgement day is coming, and only one will make that decision. And what ever president we have in office , he will not make everyone happy. But my parents always told me, respect our alders, or leaders, and pray they make the right decision for us.
Yes, I may loose my house, yes, it was a very troubling Christmas, but I will not lose my faith.
Cast your burden on the Lord, release the weight of it and He will sustain you; He will never allow the consistently righteous to be moved,made to slip, fall or fail. God Bless Smilie. Thank-you very much! God bless u. Our God is the Lord of Lords,why should we worry? Men, i dont fear no matter what aaa,The devil is a liar came rain come sunshine and thunder,all my trust is in the Lord Amen,about wealth The bible says Silver and Gold belong to our God,So bretheren the battle is not ours is for the Lord,so let all be happy in the Lord Jesus,and lean on his name ,which is a strong tower,where righteous run to it and we are saved that is provers Amen and God bless.
God is good all the time. All the time, God is good. We make our own decisions, yet we blame on God because our hearts are torn. We allow our heart to tear, we allow ourselves to fall.
Loved us enough to take our place, our shame and our guilt. When life gets tough, God is opening your eyes, to trust him, to love him. God is calling you today, are you willing? Dont think ahead and dont think behind. Quiet yourself and hear his voice.
All the glory be to God our Father, our Abba. Let his name be maginified continually. Let everything that hath breath praise his name.
Bless is he who comes in the name of the Lord and who, is indeed the Lord. Thank you Father, for leading me to this page of beautiful verses…Thank you for reminding me yesterday that you are the Lord of Lords…King of Kings.
And then making me wonder and search…and now prove that you were encouraging me. You were with me, you went before me and you met me down by the water. By the river, by the river the good Lord did pass me by.
And you spoke to me in a calm soft voice, and the birds soared, the wind blew and the trees clapped as the water rippled in praise of your Holy Blessed Name. Who can know the depth of it? Thank you for this beautiful post…may the Lord our God continue to work through you to do his Good Will. Encouraging words are essential ingredients we all need in our lives to make our lives better. Start encouraging someone today begining with urself.
Our Lord is real. He does everything at His own time, so we should rely on him always, whatever the situation, He is there to help. God bless you!
Take a trip to Walmat and see people who cannot walk, have few clothes or going up to the sample displays for their only meal. I know I was handing out samples for a while and I can tell you tha there are a lot of people who look forward to seeing the sample cart because they are hungry.
God Bless. Reading this encouraged me to rededicate my life to Christ. That was yesterday night.. Funny how I looked everywhere for love, and I had it along. Thank you so much for posting this.
I was really feeling down and was asking God to just make me feel relaxed so I can focus on his word. She was smart and financially savvy. A virtuous woman works willingly. The Proverbs 31 woman is a good homemaker.
We are told she looks well to the ways of her household. This does not mean she did every thing herself! She looks well to the ways of her household. She has help.
She is not a slave to her family or home. She is a good manager of her home. She organizes her household in a way that helps things run smoothly so that everything runs smoothly.
We are told that the virtuous woman spends her time doing what needs to be done. She does not waste time on tasks or activities that would detract from the well being of her family or from her faith. She is industrious and hard working. The Proverbs 31 woman is well dressed and she provides a pleasant and inviting home for her family and friends. The passage tells us that beauty is vain, but it also tells us that she dresses respectably and takes care with her appearance.
A Woman of Noble Character The Proverbs 31 woman is described as a virtuous woman or as a wife of noble character. She is also described as a woman of valor. She has a purpose! Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds.
We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ. She is ready, willing, and able to face each task and trial. She knows God is on her side. And if God is on her side, who can be against her? What, then, shall we say in response to these things?
If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Who then is the one who condemns?
Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Or the perfect wife. Or the perfect Christian woman. Remember, all have fallen short of the glory of God. You need not strive for perfection. In fact, striving for perfection this side of heaven will leave you feel empty time and time again. God made each of us unique. Then, love Him with all of your heart, mind, and soul!
Grace for herself and grace for others. Without Christ, we are nothing. But with Christ all things are possible.
