This feels like the Mondayest Tuesday ever – with the clouds and chill in the air. But we press on, right? When our hearts are a little wounded and our spirits are a little weary – we can bring it to the Lord and be welcomed into his presence.
It’s all I know to do really. I echo the words of Peter. “Where else would we go” (John 6:68)?
Proverbs 27:7 has been a favorite verse of mine for quite some time.
“One who is full loathes honey, but to one who is hungry everything bitter is sweet.”
When we go out into the day hungry – we lack wisdom and discernment. We aren’t as able to distinguish bitter from sweet.
👉 We need to be filled with the Word so that we aren’t fooled by the World.
HOW CAN WE BE FOOLED?
- We can fool ourselves (v 1-2).
When we aren’t filled with the Word – we can become prideful. We can be tempted to boast about ourselves and our accomplishments forgetting that it is all because of the Lord at work in us and in our lives.
- We can be fooled by others (v 19).
Without the wisdom of the Word in us – we can be fooled by the appearances of others. We fail to recognize the lack of spiritual fruit.
Fill us, Lord.
