Thoughts to Remember from Proverbs 21
Read Verses 1, 3, 6, 15, 23, 26, 30, 31
Every great and powerful king thinks he is in control
But there is One in heaven above who knows this is not so.
Sovereign Lord, Almighty Creator, the Beginning and the End
Turns the hearts of human leaders be they foe or friend.
Nebuchadnezzar, Tigleth-pilesar, Cyrus, the Persian King,
Mighty rulers but subject to God, in virtually everything.
All were sinners; none were saints, but God moved their inclination
To make the decision He desired for Israel’s continuation.
To live in justice and honesty is more pleasing to our Creator
Than offering meaningless sacrifice and continue as a hater.
“By their fruit, you shall know them,” said our Lord so dear,
So this is a proverb to put into practice all our remaining years.
Gaining a treasure by lying deceit is a sinful process indeed.
The sinner is playing with danger; judgment is guaranteed.
Justice will be a joy to the godly; the wicked will tremble in fear.
Concerning judgment for those who are evil, the Bible is crystal clear.
Guard your tongue; shut your mouth. That’s how you stay out of trouble.
Ignore this counsel only to learn your trouble will likely double.
The greedy man always shouts for more, but the righteous love to give.
Treasure is what the first man adores, but the righteous eternally lives.
No human wisdom, or crafty plan can stand against the Lord.
His depth of knowledge is far too deep for mankind to explore.
The wicked will plan and prepare their weapons, but they will not prevail.
God’s plan and purpose will not be thwarted. Our God will never fail.
