Proverbs Challenge (Day 27)

Welcome to Day 27 of the Proverbs Challenge and as we enter into the final few days, have a look over your journal, or notes, to see how far you have come, with the Lord, with Him revealing His truths into your heart

Today, we are reading Chapter 27, so let me share which verse I am writing on:

“A person who is full refuses honey, but even bitter food tastes sweet to the hungry.”

Proverbs 27:7

My Thoughts: Honey can be such an understated food, and often we will gorge on other things before honey is considered. Yet, to someone who is hungry, honey is something that produces energy for them, and satisfies their stomach so that they yearn for more

Thinking of the poor, they are usually more grateful, or thankful, for the little enjoyments in life, compared to others, because complacency kicks in and we forget the little day-to-day blessings that God provides us with

For me, honey is a delight, because it is a miracle in a bottle! Bees are something so small, that God created to fly – even though ”scientifically” or from laws of aviation, the bees shouldn’t be able to, and yet, the bee makes honey from pollen. The whole process fascinates me

My Reflection: In a contrast of being hungry, the self-sufficient does not want to read the Gospel because they feel the world already gives them what they need

Yet, to those of us who are continually hungry, we thirst and hunger for righteousness and therefore, even the most robust Word, or harshest sermon can turn our hearts back to the Lord

Why?

Because it brings comfort and testifies to Jesus!

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.
