October 16, 2017 Monday’s Daily Dose Seemed to them as Idle Tales Luke 24:11, “And their words seemed to them as idle tales, and they believed them not.” It is the foolish of man that lends us to be slow of heart to believe. We are prone to lean upon our own limited understanding and faulty mindsets. Man’s lack of belief does not change the divine truth of Jesus Christ. His Word is established forever and His steps are unaltered by 0
October 5, 2017 Your Daily Dose (Proverbs 5:1-4) When Your Wisdom Isn’t Enough Proverbs 5:1-4, “My son, attend unto my wisdom…” Fleshy lusts war against the soul, serving to draw us away from the good and godly. “Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it, Prone to leave the God I love;” The wiles of sin charm the deceived victim with the expectation to taste the sweetness of the honeycomb and to experience the pleasures of carnal promises. The fallen child is soon to 0
September 22, 2017 Your Daily Dose (Proverbs 22:29) The Results of the Diligent Proverbs 22:29, “Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings…” Not only history but the Bible draws our attention to seeing the man that is diligent in his business. In the pages of God’s Word we are able to observe men like Joseph, David, Nehemiah, Daniel and many others, who were begotten in obscurity without popularity, position, or power and yet were thrust into a 0
September 21, 2017 Your Daily Dose (Proverbs 21:5) The Thoughts of the Diligent Proverbs 21:5, “The thoughts of the diligent tend only to plenteousness; but of every one that is hasty only to want.” I am once again intrigued by how the practices of man shape the thoughts of man. (Proverbs 16:3) The man that commits his works to the Lord shall have his thoughts established. Notice the connection of what we practice and what we think. (Proverbs 23:7) As a man thinks 0
September 20, 2017 Your Daily Dose (Proverbs 20:18) Proverbs 20:18, “Every purpose is established by counsel…” The heart of man is exuberant when purposes are established and goals are accomplished; but oh how the heart droops when purposes are disappointed. When purposes are established for our good there is great satisfaction; when purposes are established to our detriment our purpose turns to bitter regrets. The key to establishing good and godly purposes is “counsel”. No man possess supreme wisdom. We are limited in 0
September 19, 2017 Your Daily Dose (Proverbs 19:11) Proverbs 19:11, “The discretion of a man deferreth his anger…” It ought to be the desire of every child of God to be “a man” or to be “a lady”. We are in the midst of a culture turning point in our society when being “a man” or being “a lady”, with manners, is not as important as demanding your own rights and promoting your own feelings above the feelings of others. When having character 0
September 15, 2017 Your Daily Dose (Proverbs 15:4) The Words You Say Often Determine Your Day Proverbs 15:4, “A wholesome tongue is a tree of life…” Many of us were raised with the adage, “Stick and Stones may break my bones but names will never heart me.” Though words may not break a bone they certainly can break the heart. The Bible warns us of the capacity of the tongue; within this little member is the power of death and life. In today’s 0
September 14, 2017 Your Daily Dose (I Corinthians 1:9) The Believer’s Confidence               I Corinthians 1:9, “God is faithful…” Who is faithful like our God? He is faithful in His love…who shall separate us from the love of God. He is faithful in His Word…let God be true, but every man a liar. He is faithful in His Grace…they are new every morning. He is faithful in His Forgiveness…He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins. 0
September 13, 2017 Your Daily Dose (Proverbs 13:20) Establishing Boundaries in Your Relationships Proverbs 13:20, “He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.”   One of the greatest influences in the life of any individual is their “companions”; their friends. It is amazing the power of influence a friendship wields. Companions can entice you into doing such things that ought not be done or they can inspire you to do all that God has 0
September 12, 2017 Your Daily Dose (Proverbs 12:5) Controlling My Thoughts Proverbs 12:5, “The thoughts of the righteous are right…” Some of the greatest battles take place in the mind. Some of the most shocking things are the thoughts and imaginations that come out of the mind. (Genesis 8:21) God declared that man’s imaginations were evil from his youth. However it is possible for our thoughts to be right. (II Corinthians 10:4-5) God has given to the believer mighty weapons so that we 0
