Book of Proverbs Chapter Three.  More than anything or anyone, we need the assurance that God's Word IS absolute. The Bible alone is our assurance that God is in control and accessible (Hebrews 4:16). Proverbs chapter three leaves us with two basic, but yet, essential choices:  Trust God or go Bust.  There is no room for error.

  • God's Word Is Trustworthy - vs.1-5

a.  Don't Forget It - vs.1a  ...My son, foget not... 
b. Don't Forbid It - vs.1b  ...let thine heart keep my commandments...
c.  Don't Forsake It - vs.2,3
>   Why We Should Not Forsake It? - 
1.  For Length Of Life - vs.2   ...For length of days and long life...
2.  For Strength In Life - vs.3,4   ...mercy...truth... So shalt thou find favor...

  • God's Work Is Trustworthy - vs.6-10

a.  The Work Of Priority - vs.6   ...In all thy ways...
b.  The Work Of Piety - vs.7a  ...be not wise in thine own eyes...fear the Lord...
c.  The Work Of Purity - vs.7b  ...depart from evil...
d.  The Work Of Plenty - vs.8,10 ...So shall thy barnes be filled with plenty...

  • God's Worth Of People Is Trustworthy - vs.11,12

a.  God's Love Is Relational - vs.11   ...My son...
b.  God's Love Is Eternal - vs.12a   ...for whom the Lord loveth...
c.  God's Love Is Paternal - vs.12b   ...even as a father...

Proverbs Chapter Three Continued 

  • Godliness Is Worth It - vs.13-18
    a.  The Happy Man - vs.13,15   ...Happy is the man...
    b.  The Honored Man - vs.16,18
    c.  The Honorable Man - vs.19,35

Note:  He Honors The Lord Exclusively - vs.19,20 

God Is His Foundation

Note:  He Honors The Lord With His Experience - vs.21,26   God Is His Focus

Note:  He Honors The Lord With His Example - vs.27-35 

God Is His Fortitude
See His Example of Giving - vs.27,28
See His Example of Living - vs.29,35  

He is in the world... not of the world.

The Christian life is possessed with a perpetual state of needing help. Asking God to help will always be desirable when the heart has an understanding of the grace of God. Christians who are growing fervently and faithfully in and by the grace of God are aware of God's dependability.

There is nothing more obvious about God than His faithfulness. A Christian will never be an imposition to God. Yet, many Believers feel very unsure and uncomfortable in asking Christ for help. It is this thinking that is the number one reason why believers inflict themselves with unnecessary problems... it is rooted in unbelief. Very dangerous!
