We know that Northview people love to be in God’s Word and often ask for direction on different devotional apps and reading plans.

While there are several good options available through various sources, we’d like to encourage you to join in our Northview Devotional Plan which will guide you to read and reflect on the passages preached in our weekend sermons!

We hope this will unite our congregation around the study of God’s Word, and help us to more readily absorb and apply the great teaching provided by our preaching pastors.

Each week we’ll be providing a suggested schedule for working through a passage slowly (15 minutes a day). You’ll need a Bible and a notebook or blank paper to record your observations.

Each day we include a reminder to pray. If you are new to the Adoration / Confession / Supplication method, here are some questions to help guide you as you pray:

  • Adoration: What can you praise God for today?
  • Confession: What thoughts / attitudes / actions might you need to confess to God today?
  • Supplication: What will you ask God for today?

The words of Agur the son of Jakeh: Proverbs 30 is a collection of wisdom from a man known only to this chapter of the Bible. When the “men of Hezekiah” gathered additional material for Proverbs (Proverbs 25:1), they added these words of Agur. This chapter is filled with observations on life and the natural world.
  • How does Agur introduce himself?
    • Compare how David, Job, and Amos talked about themselves (See Psalm 73:22, Job 25:6, Amos 7:14-15).
    • Why do they see themselves this way and how does that relate to us?
  • Verse 4 consists of many questions.
    • How can the “Who” be known? (See Job 42:1-6, Isaiah 46:8-11, 66:18-19, Romans 8:18-39)
  • How do you view yourself before God? Why is it important to have our standing in perspective? How has Jesus’ death and resurrection changed this?
  • Why is it so important to have a high view of Scripture? (See Proverbs 30:5-6)

A PRAYER OF INTEGRITY: Read Proverbs 30:7-9

Agur seems to recognize his own weakness – his tendency to forget God when life is easy and to turn away from God when life gets too hard.
  • Compare Agur’s prayer to the Lord’s Prayer in Matthew 6:9-13. What similarities do you see?
  • What does this passage say about contentment?
  • How can this passage guide your prayers?

HARD WORDS: Read Proverbs 30:10-17

Agur’s stern warnings and observations that have eternal consequences. He uses the pattern of three and then four implying that the list is specific but not exhaustive.
  • The Bible talks a lot about the servant/master relationship. How can verse 10 apply to you today?
  • Verse 12 talks about seeing ourselves rightly. Compare with Matthew 23:25-26 and Proverbs 16:2; 20:9.
    • How can we be “pure”?
    • List passages of Scripture that talk about forgiveness.
  • Agur gives some stern warnings to those who curse, mock and scorn their parents.
    • Why does God value honouring parents so highly? (See Exodus 20:12)
Pray in Adoration / Confession / Supplication


Agur continues with his three then four lists. From things too amazing to understand, to things that rock the earth.
  • Agur lists 4 things that are too amazing for him to understand about God’s creation.
    • What things do you see that make you praise God for what He has done?
    • What world events cause your world to be shaken?
  • What is wrong with a “godless fool who gets plenty to eat”?
    • How can you prevent yourself from being the “godless fool”? (See Ecclesiastes 2:25, 5:18, Psalm 16:11, and Matthew 5:6)
Pray in Adoration / Confession / Supplication

PLAYING THE FOOL: Read Proverbs 30:24-33

Four things small yet wise and four that move with majesty.
  • Why can you learn from Agur’s list of small but wise creatures (vv 24-28)?
  • At the beginning of this chapter, Agur expressed his own humility.
    • In verses 32-33, he instructs us not to “play the fool and exalt yourself”.
    • What does James 4:10 tell us to do and how can you do that?
  • What does “clap your hand over your mouth” mean?
    • How can you make that happen in your own life?
