A Word from the Word
Live in Safety
But whoever listens to me will live in safety and be at ease, without fear of harm. NIV
Do you know who’s speaking? Who could say those words? The one speaking there is wisdom, the wisdom of God. What a promise, what an offer. “If you’ll listen to me you will live in safety and be at ease without fear of harm.”
One thing that people all over the world today are striving for is security, but here is an offer of total security. You’ll live in safety; you’ll be at ease, without fear of harm. Not merely will you be physically safe, but you’ll be free from worry and anxiety and care.
What’s the secret? The secret is listening to the right voice. That’s the voice of divine wisdom speaking through the pages of Scripture, offering that promise of total security and ongoing, uninterrupted emotional stability and peace.
How can you find that? You can’t find it in the world’s system, in the world’s provisions. The world can offer temporary stability, temporary security, but nothing that’s permanent. The only pathway to permanent stability, security, peace of mind is to listen to the voice of divine wisdom speaking through the pages of Scripture and then to do what wisdom enjoys.
