Establishing Security

“…Do not let wisdom and understanding out of your sight, preserve sound judgment and discretion; they will be life for you, an ornament to grace your neck. Then you will go on your way in safety, and your foot will not stumble. When you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet. Have no fear of sudden disaster or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked, for the Lord will be at your side and will keep your foot from being snared.”  Proverbs 3:21-26

Want a secure life?  How do we get it?

  • Understanding
  • Wisdom
  • Sound Judgement
  • Discretion

With understanding comes wisdom and with wisdom comes sound judgement and discretion.  These are a precious stones to be placed around our necks.  When we put our hope and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ, and study and obey His Words, we not only gain understanding and insite into His heart and thoughts, but we gain the protection of our heavenly Father and with that, the peace of His presence.

Fear and uncertainty are replaced with peace and confidence.

  • “The wise inherit honor, but fools get only shame.”  Proverbs 3:35

Father God, Help us to strive to understand You and Your Words for us more and more each day.  Teach us your ways so that we might honor You and bring You glory.  Thank you that you are our protector, our safety, and our peace.  In Jesus’ Name.  Amen.
