Finding Your Creative Bones® 365-Day Devotional © 2023
Record your words in my heart so that I can remember them and use them.
King Solomon recorded these words.
My son, keep my teaching in your memory, and my rules in your heart: For they will give you increase of days, years of life, and peace.
Let not mercy and good faith go from you; let them be hanging round your neck, recorded on your heart; So you will have grace and a good name in the eyes of God and men.
Put all your hope in God, not looking to your reason for support.
In all your ways give ear to him, and he will make straight your footsteps.
Put no high value on your wisdom: let the fear of the Lord be before you, and keep yourself from evil: This will give strength to your flesh, and new life to your bones.
Give honour to the Lord with your wealth, and with the first-fruits of all your increase: (Proverbs 3.1-9 Bible in Basic English (BBE))
Let my words be recorded in your heart. It is a beautiful thought that you can use for prayer. This Scripture speaks of the goodness you can expect with fear of the Lord and walking on the Lord's path. Putting your faith in God without naming a need is worth consideration. Belief and gratitude with no request are gifts to God. It is easy to pray when we feel we have a necessity, but prayer offered with thankfulness and no strings attached is beautiful to God.
King of Kings, I ask that you help me fully understand Solomon's words and intentions so I can grow into a better person. Record your words in my heart so that I can remember them and use them to guide my life and relationships with others. I fear you as I should, for you are all-powerful. At the same time, though, I am so grateful that your gift of Jesus Christ tempers my fear with the knowledge that I am saved through my acceptance of him. Sharing is a gift I need to offer more freely. Please help me give generously and share the bounty you have given me. I feel there is always more I can do in this area of service to your flock. Grant these prayers so that I might serve you more fully. Amen.
