Riddles, Enigmas, and the Fear of the Lord...

"A wise man wll hear and increase learning, And a man of understanding will attain wise counsel, To understand a proverb and an enigma, The words of the wise and their riddles. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, But fools despise wisdom and instruction." Proverbs 1:5-7

Riddles and an enigma in this verse represent a principle of truth through a puzzle or problem to be solved. Needless to say, we have many problems that need solving. The fear of the Lord is a reverence and obedience to Him, and knowledge is the moral and religious sense that is only possible if one has a proper regard for God. Pray the vote. Pray that God's man will listen with discernment, add to his knowledge, and receive wise counsel in this campaign.

Father, I thank You for this beautiful Sunday and another opportunity to go into Your house and worship You. Lord, as we draw nearer and nearer to the election, fear grips the hearts of many Christians...fear that the disregard for morality, patriotism, and most of all YOU, will take our country spiraling downward until we meet with total destruction. You and only You can change the hearts of people. When the curtain closes behind them in the voting booth, sway the hearts of voters to choose Your man. I love You. Amen and amen.

Anna Marie, I just want to thank you for your daily verse, insight and prayer. Thank you for the daily reminder to pray for your new president. I'm Canadian, and I know that I can't vote, but I know that the whole world is affected by America, so I am also praying that God will help the voters vote for His right choice!
God bless you!!
