A MOTHER’S INTUITION
Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction.
PRE-AMBLE by Robert
Most interpreters are of the opinion that Lemuel is Solomon; the name signifies one that is for God or devoted to God, and so it agrees well enough with that honourable name which, by divine appointment, was given to Solomon (2Sam xii 25), Jedediah–beloved of the Lord.
Lemuel is supposed to be a pretty, fond, endearing name, by which his mother used to call him, and so much did he value himself upon the interest he had in his mother’s affections that he was not ashamed to call himself by it. The rather inclined to think it is Solomon that here tells us what his mother taught him because he tells us (Proverbs 4:4) what his father taught him.
It is the duty of mothers, as well as fathers, to teach their children what is good, that they may do it, and what is evil, that they may avoid it when they are young and tender, they are most under the mother’s eye, and she has then an opportunity of moulding and fashioning their minds well, which she ought not to let slip.
Even kings must be catechized; the greatest of men is less than the least of the ordinances of God.
Those that have grown up to maturity should often call to mind, and make mention of, the good instructions they received when they were children, for their own admonition, the edification of others, and the honour of those who were the guides of their youth.

As we hear from the Holy Spirit, we know your voice is being listened to through him and all those infirmities which may plague us will be healed and a hedge of protection built around our lives. We thank you, Father, for all your mercies and abundant dealings you perform on our behalf. Thank you, Lord, for being our Shepherd and bringing us to bountiful pastures and protecting us from ravening wolves. This we pray in your name Yeshua. Amen and Amen.
