Listen to God’s promises in the verses we have memorized so far in Proverbs 2:
‘My child, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you, turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding, and if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding, and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the Lord and you will find the knowledge of God. For the Lord gives wisdom, from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. He holds victory in store for the upright, he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless’.
Wow! The fear of the Lord, the knowledge of God, wisdom, understand, victory and a shield!
Here’s our next verse:
‘He guards the course of the just and protects the way of his faithful ones.’
God’s grace makes us the ‘just’ in his eyes – amazing, isn’t it? He promises to guard our course.
And if only one thing can be said about me after my dust has been blown off of this planet, I want to be remembered as being faithful to God.
Devoted. Loyal. Reliable. Consistent. All of these words show up in the definition of being faithful.
He protects our way when we are faithful to him.
It is promises like these that give me peace. God’s peace. He is in control. I just need to do my part of obeying and seeking and looking and search and committing his words to my heart and turning my ear to his wisdom.
Then he can do his part of guiding and teaching and guarding.
Thank you, Abba Father.
