If there is one asset we need on a daily basis, it is wisdom. Throughout Scripture, and particularly in Proverbs, God makes His wisdom available to us.
For many years, I’ve enjoyed reading a chapter from Proverbs each day, reading through the entire book every month. In A Word to the Wise: Practical Advice from the Book of Proverbs I’ve written a devotional reading from the book of Proverbs for every day of the year. I’ve also included cross-references from many other portions of Scripture as well as a Bible reading schedule at the bottom of each page that will lead you through the entire Bible in one year.
The emphasis in these devotions is on application, and each reading concludes with a distilled truth that you can apply immediately to your life. (For examples, you can see dailyintheword.org/today.)
The text for each day’s reading actually corresponds to the chapter in Proverbs that matches the day of the month. (For instance, the devotion for January 1 comes from Proverbs 1, the devotion for July 16 comes from Proverbs 16, etc.) (more…)
I’m burdened for my country—on many levels. I don’t believe there are any quick fixes, but I do believe there is one foundational fix that would change everything—revival. A genuine, Spirit-sent revival of God’s people.
Actually, most Christians I know are burdened for revival in America. But too few actually pray for revival. We hope for it, long for it, dream of it. But do we pray for it?
Striving Together has recently published quite a few new resources. But there are two in particular that I want to ask you to consider.
The first is a free resource: America Tomorrow. You can hear the entire material taught and download the companion book here.
The second is my newest book The Road Ahead. I believe this book will help us as biblical Baptists to address issues that are being discussed whether we address them or not, and then to rightly respond to those issues.
In this week’s Growth Points video, I share more information about both of these resources and why I believe they will be a help to you and to your ministry.
