Daily Devotional – Wisdom of God’s Words

Daily Devotional

Our scripture for the Daily Devotional today is taken from Proverbs 30:11-19. The blood of Jesus has cleansed us all. When we acknowledge that we are sinful and need His saving. Even though only Jesus’ blood saves, many try to cleanse themselves with the dirty acts.

“There are those who curse their fathers
    and do not bless their mothers;
12 those who are pure in their own eyes
    and yet are not cleansed of their filth;
13 those whose eyes are ever so haughty,
    whose glances are so disdainful;
14 those whose teeth are swords
    and whose jaws are set with knives
to devour the poor from the earth
    and the needy from among mankind.

15 “The leech has two daughters.
    ‘Give! Give!’ they cry.

“There are three things that are never satisfied,
    four that never say, ‘Enough!’:
16 the grave, the barren womb,
    land, which is never satisfied with water,
    and fire, which never says, ‘Enough!’

17 “The eye that mocks a father,
    that scorns an aged mother,
will be pecked out by the ravens of the valley,
    will be eaten by the vultures.

18 “There are three things that are too amazing for me,
    four that I do not understand:
19 the way of an eagle in the sky,
    the way of a snake on a rock,
the way of a ship on the high seas,
    and the way of a man with a young woman.”

Look towards others lovingly.

Have you ever stopped to gaze and watch an eagle in flight? They expertly understand the air currents, using them to soar majestically high into the sky. From on high they watch the creatures of the earth just as God does. The keen vision allows the eagle to spot a small bunny and swoop in for their next meal.

God’s keen vision watches all that takes place on earth. He sees all those that selfishly look to provide for themselves at the cost of others. God will swoop in to rescue those that seek His glory and face as the eagle does.

Proverbs 30 is full of wisdom and warnings. Let us humble ourselves and lean only on God and His strength. Our own efforts will only bring about ruin.

Let’s Pray

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you, Father, that You have made the way for our salvation. Your pure and perfect way may seem too simple and easy, but I humble myself before  You and wait on Your works.

In Jesus Name,

Amen
