Weekday devotionals for Christians

Watch For It

Pro 8:34 Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.
Pro 8:35 For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the LORD.

Here we have some wonderful instruction as to what a blessed man does.  We all want to be blessed.  But to be blessed by God, well bring it on Lord Jesus!  Blessings are wonderful and everyone wants them, but we need to follow God’s instructions in order to get the blessings from God.

In these two verses, it tells what a blessed man does.  When I initially get blessed from God, I want to sit, enjoy and feel loved.  While doing that is fun, I must do something to continue in that blessing.  In vs. 34, the blessed man is not one that is soaking up treats, but rather the one who is listening to God.  I am reminded that I have 1 mouth, 2 eyes, and 2 ears.  I should be listening 2 times as much and watching 2 times as much as talking.  I have a natural problem with this because I (at times) just don’t know when to “shut the lips.”  This is especially true when it come to God; I should be more concerned with watching and hearing than I am with talking.  It goes on to say that the blessed man watches daily.  I should have a daily devotion time with God, but devotions aren’t enough for the Christian.  He or She needs to daily hear and watch through out the day.  God will speaks to you all day.  The question is, are you listening and watching for it?
