Week 23

Here's this week's readings:
 Proverbs 3-5; Romans 10
 Proverbs 6-7; Psalm 7; Romans 11
 Proverbs 8-10; Psalm 144; Romans 12
 Proverbs 11-13; Ps 8; Romans 13
 Proverbs 14-15; Romans 14

There are two readings in the first day that are some of the most familiar in Scripture (and for good reason!)

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.” (Proverbs 3:5–6, NLT)

“If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” (Romans 10:9, NLT)

The first is the great call to faith, even beyond our own understanding.  It carries with it a promise of revelation.  We are so very apt to "go our own way" (paraphrasing Fleetwood Mac).  We have a better alternative.  

The second passage gives us a picture of that way, of the God in whom we trust and the final results of that trust.  He is the God who sent His own son to reign over the Kingdom of heaven, the Son who died and rose again from the dead to take that throne.  Our salvation is in Him.
