The Proverbs: God Answers - June 27, 2010

Proverbs 30:4 (Amplified Bible)
4Who has ascended into heaven and descended? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has bound the waters in His garment? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His name, and what is His Son's name, if you know?

John 3:13(New International Reader's Version)
13 "No one has ever gone into heaven except the One who came from heaven. He is the Son of Man.

There is an Old Testament oracle known only as Agur son of Jakeh. He is another contributor to the book of Proverbs, and his wise sayings are recorded and inspired by God. In this passage he asks a very profound question that acts as an understatement and a word of prophecy. Jesus answers Agur's questions himself, as recorded by the apostle John hundreds of years later. And the answer is Jesus Christ himself, God in the flesh, both Creator and Savior.

As you reflect on a new week, seek God and His guidance. Seek the only One from heaven that offers you hope and comfort. May you be blessed in doing so.
