Change of Terrain
Today we finish the Psalms and begin Proverbs (Psalm 145:1-Proverbs 1:7). The change of genre is noticeable, like leaving a mountain road and passing through a grassy river valley. Each has its special beauty and attractiveness. Psalms speak to my heart and Proverbs to my head. One prepares me for all kinds of emotional experiences; the other for a variety of relational and personal challenges.
I need both. Praise God for providing such thorough equipment for our spiritual lives (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
Enjoy the read and the change of terrain.
