Proverbs: God's Wisdom for Daily Living

Devotional Scripture:

Proverbs 4:23-27(KJV):
23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.
24 Put away from thee a froward mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee.
25 Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee.
26 Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established.
27 Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.


Thought for the Day

Verse 23 - Proverbs is a wonderful book from which to teach our children the wisdom to become overcomers. This verse goes to the very heart of what determines our destinies; the "issues of life" that come from our hearts. We are born in wickedness, having inherited a sin nature from our forefathers, beginning with Adam. It will destroy us unless we come to Jesus for a heart cleansing. "Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man" (Matthew 15:11).

Verse 24 - We are commanded to guard our hearts; to be cautious of what we embrace and take into our spirits, and to stop speaking things that are not right. Obedience in these two areas determines the kind of life we have on earth. "For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he..." (Proverbs 23:7a). We must put away a froward tongue and stop gossiping, lying, criticizing, and so forth. Through this sort of talk, we can release curses upon others. Eventually, we will receive them back upon ourselves, because we reap what we sow.

"And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell. For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind: But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God. Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be" (James 3:6-10). We will be unable to tame our tongues unless we allow Jesus to help us, for our "mouth problem" is actually a heart problem. To correct it, we must ask the Lord to cleanse our hearts. We must speak God's Word over ourselves and others.

Verses 25-27 - Notice that not only is the heart mentioned, but the mouth, the eyes, and feet. To live righteously and walk in God's blessing and wisdom, we must make a total commitment and serve God with all of our hearts, minds, and physical beings.

Prayer Devotional for the Day

Dear Father, I realize that I have been guilty of not guarding what has gone into my heart. Forgive me Lord, for this sin. I have also been guilty of allowing the wrong things to come out of my mouth at times. Also, please forgive me for the things that I have spoken that have come from a wrong heart attitude. Lord Jesus, I would like to make the words of the Christian song, "Change My Heart, Oh God" to be my prayer today:Change my heart, oh God
Make it ever true
Change my heart, oh God
May I be like you

You are the potter
I am the clay
Mold me and make me
This is what I pray

Change my heart, oh God
Make it ever true
Change my heart, oh God
May I be like you
