Good Morning my Beloved Friends. Thank you for coming, for returning. May I have your attention?
For Proverbs Chapter 3, I shall, with your permission, show you how I personally 'dig into' the Holy Bible.
Then, going forward, if you so choose, you may study the rest of Proverbs and other sections of God's Word in this manner.
Now, please remember, we are not in a 'horse-race' when we are in His Presence, in His Word. We must set aside 'time' for the most important 'appointment' of our day.
Continuing this our posts from Sunday, June 24, 2018, Post 7, 3A/1-2; this Wednesday, June 27, 2018, Chapter 3B-1/2 in the morning and the evening.
Proverbs Chapter 3.
After taking the first step of 'just' reading the respective chapter; and then, sitting quietly, waiting on the Lord, or, as so moved in the Spirit, to pray through areas of the chapter I am studying; next I take each segment of the 'Outline', re-read the passages, and then, read the respective commentary, being attentive to any further 'enlightening of my mind' by Our Mutual Teacher, the Holy Spirit. [Matthew 23:8; Luke 12:12; John 6:45; 14:26; James 3:1].
It is only after I have been with the Lord for His perspective initially that I, [for deeper insight, as I am led], will check out one of my favorite past 'Christian Pastor's' Commentary'. This is critically important. If you depend on just outlines or commentaries, I guarantee - you will miss what the Lord is saying to you, in your very own situation and circumstances, in 'this day and age'. This is one of the reasons, so many go astray. They do not get - 'the living word', for themselves. So, be carefully.
[For this series of post, I will use 'Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary'. You may 'google' and find it online in the open domain, or on many sites.]
I realize that the 'commentary' is the person's study, in the person's time on the respective Scripture. But, it is an invaluable tool when you allow the Holy Spirit to 'confirm' the 'understanding and insight'. We are surrounded by 'a cloud' of the saints of the past in a unique way. [Hebrews Chapters 11-12] This is a figurative representation and means that we ought to act as if they were in sight and cheering us on to the same victory in the life of faith that they obtained. We are to be inspired by the godly examples these saints set during their lives. These are those whose past lives of faith encourage others to live that way, too, by faith. That the cloud is referred to as “great” indicates that millions of believers have gone before us, each bearing witness to the life of faith we now live.
Now, for this Post B-1, let us use the same outline sections of Proverbs 3, and consult with Matthew Henry's insights for more from and through the Holy Spirit. And, we will continue and finish on Post B-2, this day.
So, I take each segment of the 'Outline', re-read the passages, and then, read the respective commentary, being attentive to the Holy Spirit, enlightening my mind, further.
