Proverbs Challenge (Day 20)

Thank you for joining me, today, for Day 20 of the Proverbs Challenge, and this means we are reading through Chapter 20 of this amazing book in the Bible

There are always so many verses that speak to me throughout these chapters, but I only want to share one, per day, so that the Holy Spirit will guide you, to your revelation, throughout the chapters. So here is my verse that I want to discuss today:

“Avoiding a fight is a mark of honor; only fools insist on quarreling.”

Proverbs 20:3

My Thoughts: I used to think that it was a sign of strength to fight. Sad I know. But, that was the world I lived in. I was told that it was a weakness to not throw the first punch, or to not destroy someone with my words. I look back and wince at the person I once was, but thank God that I have received wisdom within this area of my life, and therefore, made choices to walk away from this lifestyle

God showed me, how I first needed to love others (for who He created them to be) before I then understood how to learn to love myself – it was a hard truth, but one that I am eternally grateful for

My Reflection: Someone who is confident of his/her strength does not need to parade it. A courageous person does not look for chances to prove it. A resourceful person can find a way out of a fight. We can all avoid retaliation – no matter what we think at the time

Yet, those of us who are foolish, find it impossible to avoid conflict. When we are on the right path, we choose God’s way, and when I think over what I have learnt, so far, during this challenge, the Bible is clear on what God thinks of fools!

What did Chapter 20 show you?

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.
