Bible In One Year-Day 202 (Sunday, July 21, 2013)
Commentary: Proverbs25-27. What a way to learn to keep secrets and live a life of moderation.
Proverbs 25:3 “The heaven for height, and the earth for depth, and the heart of kings is unsearchable.”
When you see a king without a place of secrecy inside of him, you have seen a naked king due to fall. This proverb came out of the mouth of King Solomon, but he was found showing a stranger all he had, even the secret of his rooms. To everyone God has a covenant with there is a secret he has to keep to himself. The covenant is in that secret and it must be within him. When he exposes it, he is finished. Samson had the secret of his greatness in his heart and the symbol was the hair, but unfortunately, he revealed it to Delilah; that changed his status. The glory of a king without a place within him to keep secret can easily be removed by the enemy. Joseph could not keep secret in the first place and that landed him in an unpleasant place. If we are not wise in walking with God, two things could happen; either the appointment is terminated or God sends the person to the school of wisdom and humility; this school is intense. There is no double promotion there; however, every subject and course must be taken, no matter how brilliant one is. What you are going through now could be as a result of loosing or exposing a secret to the enemy like Joseph. You have to endure through the training until God says you have graduated and your seat of fulfillment shall be handed over to you by a person that matters. The goal is for one to be disciplined and moderate in all dealings. As sweet as honey is, too much of it will result in discomfort; i.e. to say moderation is part of kingdom walk.
Proverbs 25:16 “Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it. Withdraw thy foot from thy neighbour’s house; lest he be weary of thee, and so hate thee.”
Let us seek for the old path where we could find rest. Let us listen to the trumpet’s sound, wherewith we could escape the calamity to come. Our reading for today is Proverbs28-31. Keep the fire burning and alive.
