After I finished the Book of John, I started reading Proverbs. The entire book is filled with life applications. In fact, that is exactly what Proverbs is – life applications! I am looking forward to all the Lord has for us this month in Proverbs.
Since this month has 31 days, and the Book of Proverbs has 31 chapters, I plan on reading one chapter each day. There will be too many life applications to share, so I will pick out a few that stand out to me. I hope you will share the ones that stand out to you as well.
Before moving to Proverbs, there are a few things I would like to share that were in the last part of John:
- John 21:3-6,11
- They had been professional fishermen in the past, but He was transforming them to be fishers of men now.
- There is purpose in failing.
- It teaches us to trust and rely on the Lord to guide us.
- It can move us to new places, jobs, missions, etc…
- It teaches us what to do differently.
- True success comes when we follow the Lord’s directions and leading.
- Proverbs 1:8-9
- Depending on your age, you may not think your parents or grandparents know what is best for you or your generation, but they do.
- Wisdom is from the Lord, and many times He gives it to people through experience.
- Even though times are very different than they used to be, the generations before had similar experiences. The particulars may be different, but the lessons are the same. Don’t dismiss the lessons they learned from their mistakes. They have your best interest at heart as they share their wisdom.
- Proverbs 3:5-6
- When you trust the Lord for your daily actions and decisions instead of your own understanding, you path in life will be easier.
- It isn’t that you won’t have problems, issues, or trials; we will always have those while we are on earth. However, you won’t have to deal with the consequences of your own actions IN ADDITION to the trials of life.
- Proverbs 5:11-16 – People tend to look back as they get older and reflect on their life. They can see their mistakes and victories. this leads to wisdom. That is exactly why we should listen to our elders.
I would love for you to join me weekly as I read the Word to find life applications to use daily.
Life Application Resources
If you have joined me recently, these weekly life applications from the Bible are examples of some of the comments I write in the Bibles I am giving to my grandchildren when they graduate from high school. Click here to see the post where I explain this eternal gift idea.
The rose colored Bible is the one I am using for my youngest granddaughter, and I really love it! The brown study Bible is the one Jay uses.
I pray these weekly life applications help you in some way. Please share any encouragement and lessons you have learned this week. I would love to hear your thoughts.
