We All Place Our Security Somewhere! Proverbs 18 Part 1

Everyone puts their security into something.  There are many that only put their security in themselves.  They think their clever words, insightful plans and self-sufficiency is all they need to come out on top.  Often they are the ones we dread seeing, because they are selfish and rude.  They speak their mind, but, do so without using it first, and without  any regard for the consequence of their comments.  Since they are only concerned about themselves, their impact upon others, except as it relates to a return for them, is inconsequential.  They are divisive, disruptive and difficult to tolerate—yet, they perceive themselves as the wisest and best loved in the room—because, only their opinion matters.

God calls us to be different. He asks that we place our security in Him.  We look to Him and His word for leadership.  We follow Hhis plan and give Him the credit for the advances we make on the journey.  We wait on Him and trust him for our future and its timing.  We are not our favorite topic to discuss—He is.  We live humbly and gratefully and cherish the friends God has given us.  Then, He is allowed to lead, provide, prepare and protect us in the midst of the chaos we call this life.  His leadership, his provision is the only thing that allows us to make sense of the craziness we live in. We have to seek Him, trust Him and follow Him and He will then carry us through the battles ad into His kingdom as His beloved child.  Help me. Lord to humbly follow you.

God Bless You

An unfriendly person pursues selfish ends     and against all sound judgment starts quarrels.

Fools find no pleasure in understanding     but delight in airing their own opinions.

When wickedness comes, so does contempt,     and with shame comes reproach.

The words of the mouth are deep waters,     but the fountain of wisdom is a rushing stream.

It is not good to be partial to the wicked     and so deprive the innocent of justice.

The lips of fools bring them strife,     and their mouths invite a beating.

The mouths of fools are their undoing,     and their lips are a snare to their very lives.

The words of a gossip are like choice morsels;     they go down to the inmost parts.

One who is slack in his work     is brother to one who destroys.

10 The name of the Lord is a fortified tower;     the righteous run to it and are safe.

11 The wealth of the rich is their fortified city;     they imagine it a wall too high to scale.

12 Before a downfall the heart is haughty,     but humility comes before honor
