I love concrete, inarguable statements. Today’s proverbs are exactly that.
“Every word of God is flawless; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him. Do not add to his words, or he will rebuke you and prove you a liar.” Proverbs 30:5-6 NIV
1. Every word of God is flawless. He doesn’t make mistakes or promise what he won’t deliver.
2, He is a shield to those who take refuge in him. What better safety is there?
3. If I add to his words he will rebuke me and prove me a liar. I’m glad I can’t change or add to God’s words. I need what he says to be solid, unchanging. I need him to be God.
One more day in the month of January, and one more chapter in Proverbs to glean from. Tomorrow is Proverbs 31 day!
