• Commit to the Lord Devotional

    Proverbs 3:5–6

    Confess ways that you rely on your own strength instead of God’s. Does your self-dependence extend to other areas—your family, health, salvation? It you are anxious and self-reliant, could the root of the problem be a lack of saving faith in Christ? If so, go to Him today, confess your sins and find peace in Him. View Resource

  • Straightening Our Paths Devotional

    Proverbs 3:5–6

    Hindsight, as they say, is always twenty-twenty. When we find ourselves in the place where the Lord wants us, we can often look back and see that the circuitous path it took us to get there was actually perfectly straight, that what seemed like twists and turns at the time were necessary steps along the road. When we feel as if we are wandering, we must remember that if we are trusting in God, He is actually guiding us on His straight path. View Resource

  • Being Truly Wise Devotional

    Proverbs 3:7-8

    Matthew Henry comments, “There is not a greater enemy to the power of religion, and the fear of God in the heart, than conceitedness of our own wisdom.” When we think we know better than the Lord, we have already fallen into sin, and things can only get worse from there. That we might not trust in ourselves above God, we must continually turn to His Word, confess our foolishness, and seek to learn from others who are wiser than we are. View Resource

  • Honoring God with Your Wealth Devotional

    Proverbs 3:9-10

    The truth of Proverbs 3:9–10 is seen ultimately in the new heaven and earth where we all will possess a mansion (John 14:2 KJV). Moreover, the incredible truth of the gospel is that God makes us into His firstfruits, the first and best of what is given to Him. As James 1:18 states, the Lord has brought us forth as firstfruits. Our giving to God and His work is a tangible expression of the trust by which the Lord makes us into the first and best of what He owns. View Resource

  • The Discipline of the Lord Devotional

    Proverbs 3:11-12

    God does not delight in seeing His children suffer; rather, He imposes discipline for the greater good of our maturity in Christ. The discipline that we feel for our sin is not a sign that God hates us or is “out to get us.” Instead, it is proof positive that He loves us and wants us to grow strong in Him. Do you find yourself under the discipline of the Lord this day? Pray that you would learn the lesson you need to learn from your suffering. View Resource

  • Wisdom and Life Devotional

    Proverbs 3:13–18

    Our forebears rejected God’s wisdom in Eden, but in His grace He has made a way for mankind to feast on the treasures of Christ so that we might eat from the Tree of Life forevermore. All of us who trust in Jesus alone for salvation enjoy this wisdom that guarantees eternal life, and we have a responsibility to let others know how they too can find this wisdom in Him. Let us show forth how much we treasure this wisdom by sharing the gospel with others. View Resource
