A Journey Through the Psalms and Proverbs

Brandon Griess

Brandon Griess

Howdy! My name is Brandon Griess. I have a new life in Christ, and I am recovering from co-dependency, the need for approval, and materialism. I have been with my wife Bonnie and her dog Clyde for five years. We have a little boy named Raylan and a little girl named Liesl Jean. We weren't born in Texas, but got here as fast as we could. Though forgoing my career as a crocodile hunter was difficult, I am thankful that Jesus has helped me through more difficult trials.

HOLD FAST!

Proverbs 24:10-22

10 If you faint in the day of adversity,
your strength is small.
11 Rescue those who are being taken away to death;
hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter.
12 If you say, “Behold, we did not know this,”
does not he who weighs the heart perceive it?
Does not he who keeps watch over your soul know it,
and will he not repay man according to his work?

13 My son, eat honey, for it is good,
and the drippings of the honeycomb are sweet to your taste.
14 Know that wisdom is such to your soul;
if you find it, there will be a future,
and your hope will not be cut off.

15 Lie not in wait as a wicked man against the dwelling of the righteous;
do no violence to his home;
16 for the righteous falls seven times and rises again,
but the wicked stumble in times of calamity.

17 Do not rejoice when your enemy falls,
and let not your heart be glad when he stumbles,
18 lest the Lord see it and be displeased,
and turn away his anger from him.

19 Fret not yourself because of evildoers,
and be not envious of the wicked,
20 for the evil man has no future;
the lamp of the wicked will be put out.

21 My son, fear the Lord and the king,
and do not join with those who do otherwise,
22 for disaster will arise suddenly from them,
and who knows the ruin that will come from them both? (ESV)

MEMORY VERSES

Proverbs 21:1-2

The king's heart is a stream of water in the hand of the Lord;
he turns it wherever he will.
Every way of a man is right in his own eyes,
but the Lord weighs the heart.
