Betty Miller shares her daily devotionals which are based on the book of Proverbs in the Bible.
The Wisdom of God
Introduction and Personal Message from Betty Miller:
I received a commission from God to pen these devotionals. It was one of the hardest things I have ever done; yet, the easiest. The hardest, as I had to yield to the discipline of daily devoting two hours to these writings for the period of 365 days. Yet, it was also the easiest, as the Holy Spirit met me in my writing studio each evening. As I sat down to read the scripture for that day’s writing (with not a clue as to where that scripture would lead me in my composition), God would grace me to pen the wisdom that is contained in the book of Proverbs. The words would just begin to flow, as the gift of writing that He bestowed upon me, settled softly in my heart. I knew the knowledge and wisdom I was gleaning from this chapter of the Holy Scriptures was not just for me, but for the extended family of God, as well.
“The Thoughts for the Day” sometime took the form of a teaching, a sermon, a devotional meditation, a testimony, and at times, I felt as if I penned things that were from the very heart of God, Himself. I felt a gratitude and a need to pray at the end of each page I would write, so I thought I should include those prayers as well. The Holy Spirit inspired me to pray simple prayers from my heart that expressed my own need of change, as well, as asking for the world around me to be changed.
The writing of this book changed my life because of the treasure of wisdom I discovered in the book of Proverbs. The real treasure is knowing and loving Jesus, for He is ultimate Wisdom. If you find just one gem that touches you and brings you into a closer relationship with Him, then my labor of love will bring me great joy. I will meet you daily through these postings as you read them; but, I will also expect we shall have that unseen visitor with us, as this daily devotional book was His idea.
His grateful handmaiden,
