Proverbs Challenge (Day 19)

Today, is Day 19 of the Proverbs Challenge, so let’s reflect on what Chapter 19 has to say to us all!

Verse 8 spoke to me, in volumes:

“He who gets wisdom loves his own soul; He who keeps understanding will find good.”

Proverbs 19:8

My Thoughts: This is profound, in my life, because I didn’t understand how to love myself. I thought it was impossible to love who I saw in the mirror, and therefore, my story was one of self-destruction for many years

Yet, this verse is supposed to take us deeper…it is not a verse that focuses on this lifetime, but one that draws us to success in God’s eyes. It has an eternal perspective, in that, those of us who love ourselves will seek to love wisdom and understanding because these things will save our souls!

My Reflection: Is it actually good to love ourselves? Actually, God wants us too, especially when it means the difference between Heaven and Hell

This Proverb isn’t condoning being ”self-centred” – which are people who just love and protect their own needs and interests, but instead, it encourages those of us who care about themselves and what God thinks, to seek wisdom

My hearts desire is for everyone to have an intimate relationship with Christ. To hear the voice of God and to experience His presence. Also, to help disciple others to discover their purpose within the body of Christ - through the power of the Holy Spirit.

My God-given dream is to break down barriers within life and the Church as a whole to strengthen and develop relationships within every denomination and bring unity - so that we will collectively raise up together and fulfil the Great Commission, within this lifetime.

I am living proof that no matter what your past was or whatever your life has become - God will use you to fulfil what He created you to do, when you step out in obedience and faith.
