And I was reading in Proverbs this morning. And the verse out of Proverbs 3 just struck me over and over.
Do not be afraid of sudden terror or the desolation of the wicked when it comes. For the LORD will be your confidence and will keep your foot from being caught. When you lie down you will not be afraid and your sleep will be sweet.
I’m also reminded of Psalm 130:
I wait on the LORD. My should waits. And in His Word I do hope. I wait for the LORD as those who watch for the morning.
So watch. And wait. Be ready. And pray. And don’t be afraid. Don’t be afraid.
Shabbat Shalom. May Peace be upon you.
I feel peaceful. I feel a little anxious. I mean if you’re not anxious you’re not taking it seriously. But I’m not afraid – “oh my gosh, what’s going to happen?” I’m going to see what’s going to happen.
Anybody that’s on a path of Wisdom, or a path of Truth…you have to go through Proverbs to get there. Proverbs in the Bible is the gateway to Wisdom. It covers everything – economics, marriage, relationships with neighbors. It covers the Creator. Every situation you can find yourself in as a human can be covered in Proverbs.
Our lifestyle is changing before our eyes. Now is the time. Now is the time to study wisdom literature – ancient wisdom literature. Now’s the day.
So get Wisdom, and with all you’re getting get Understanding. Read Proverbs. You can read Proverbs 1 on the first day of the month, and by Proverbs 31 you would have covered a 31 day month. So it’s something that can be very habit forming in a positive way.
And don’t have any fear. No fear. There will be Light and Love and Life.
