Pr 6, Ps 23, 1 Sam 23

Pr 6

:2 Thou are snared with the words of thy mouth, thou are taken with the words of thy mouth.

Be careful of your words, you may have to eat them. You WILL have to answer to God for EVERY word out of your mouth. Would you use the same words if Christ were standing next to you? If you have Him as your Savior, He hears them. OUCH.

Ps 23

This was my mom's favorite chapter.

:1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

That covers it all doesn't it?

:2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters.

Have you ever spent time in a green pasture? I used to spend time as a child laying in one watching the clouds. It is one of the few good memories I have from my childhood. It was so peaceful there. Even after being stung by a yellow jacket, I still returned every chance I had to that place.

If you have never really read and thought about the verses in this psalm, I encourage you to do so, there is so much love and encouragement in the verses.

1 Sam 23

:1-5 David seeks the Lord before going to battle. When his men say they are afraid, he sought the Lord a second time. When God gave the same answer they went out and defeated the Philistines.

:6-14 David hears Saul knows where he is and asks the Lord if Saul will come and destroy the city. The answer is yes, so David leaves. Saul continues to search for David when he hears David has left.

:15-19 Someone tells Saul where David is hiding.

:20-29 David continues to avoid Saul with the Lord's help.
