Experiencing The Wisdom of God Through Proverbs Chapter 11

Chapter 11

Seek God with all your heart we were advised in the first nine chapters. Listen to the voice of God and treasure His words more than gold or silver. There are millions of people on our planet...yet God loves you and desires to give you His Wisdom individually. One sure way to begin to understand God's ways is to read His Word.

Wow. Take a look at all of the guidence in just this chapter alone. It might seem like too much to take in at one setting. My prayer for you is that as you read Proverbs chapter 11 today God will speak specially to you about situations you are facing. I may highlight certain verses here on the blog...but God may highlight verses that I don't even mention. It will be that way from now on as we travel through Proverbs. If you are interested in a certain subject...get a notebook and every time there is a verse that deals with it write it down. Some Bibles have helps that show you similar verses throughout the Bible. Do you need to work on your tongue???...write out all the verses that deal with that in your notebook. What ever subject that you are dealing with is likely to be found in some way or fashion in this book.

Don't give up on the challenge. We've already completed ten days. If you've missed a few start with today and catch up on what you missed as you can. You can complete this challenge and reap the benefits of putting God's Wisdom in your heart. The Bible says in Hosea 4:6,
"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge..." In Hosea's day...they lost knowledge because they rejected it..they wanted their own way instead of God's. That is true of American's too. Also we have many people who have never really sought God's way for themselves. They've trusted in a Sunday Sermon alone....and they seldom open the Bible themselves. Put that kind of thing aside and seek Him with all your heart.

Here are some of my favorite verses from this chapter.

1 The Lord detests the use of dishonest scales, but he delights in accurate weights. 3 Honesty guides good people; dishonesty destroys treacherous people. 9 With their words, the godless destroy their friends, but knowledge will rescue the righteous. What verses were your favorite in today's chapter?

Is God speaking something to you concerning your everyday life?


  1. a man of understanding holds his peace, a talebearer reveals secrets but the faithful conceals the matter

    a gracious woman retains honor
    the liberal soul sahll be made fat

    diligently seeking good with produce favor
