Proverbs 20 – Why try to understand everything…

Good morning y’all.  Apologies yesterday’s blog coming today. We are studying  proverbs chapter 20.

Be blessed 🙂


Verse 4

“Those too lazy to plow in the right season will have no food at the harvest”.(NLT)

Failure to do the right ring at the right time will cost us. It’s like a farmer refusing to plant seeds during sowing season and expecting a harvest at the end of the season. The farmer is a joker, because all he would see in his farm are weeds as he hasn’t taken the time to cultivate the land. Can you now imagine him trying to sow in the harvest season? It just won’t work.

I pray by the help of the holy spirit we would learn to do the right things at the right time.

Verse 13

“If you love sleep, you will end in poverty. Keep your eyes open, and there will be plenty to eat!” (NLT)

We can’t afford to be sleeping when we are meant to be working! Life will pass us by and by the time we wake up from our slumber, it might be too late to turn things around. Let’s not be nonchalant about things. Let’s learn to do the right thing at the right time. We should always ask God what am I meant to be doing now? And then get up and do it. No more procrastination!!! Procrastination is a destroyer of destiny. Don’t carry into your  tomorrow, something you can do today.

Verse 24

“The lord directs our steps, so why try to understand everything along the way?” (NLT)

This verse is timely. I needed it badly. I have been fretting over a particular issue in my life, trying to figure out what’s going to happen, even though I have committed the issue into Gods hands. By the way I haven’t figured anything out, if at all the whole fretting experience has just left me drained and weary!!! (***I’m still work in progress 🙂 . Should have found this verse at the beginning of the week, would have saved myself sleepless nyts 🙂 ***)

Our worrying is effectively telling God we don’t trust His plan is good enough. Instead of worrying about we start thanking God for answers and praising him for we know we will not be put to shame. God has promised us in His word that those who put their trust in Him won’t be put to shame. He also said we should commit our ways to Him and He will direct our paths. If we believe those promises, then we don’t need to understand everything in between.

I pray God helps us to fully trust Him and rest secured in his Love and Promises.

Thanks for joining today. Pls feel free to share your thoughts on the chapter.

Have a blessed weekend basking in God’s goodness and mercy 🙂

***With God all things are possible***
