Word of Inspiration: Dwell Safely in the Lord

"But whoever listens to Me will dwell safely and will be secure without evil." (Proverbs 1:32 NKJV)

Several verses leading up to these two refer to the blessings of listening to wisdom and the consequences of ignoring wisdom. The entire Bible is full of wisdom and direction, but so many of us chose to ignore it and go through life by trial and error. These blunderings leave the door open for consequences we'd rather not face. Then we wonder why things are so chaotic and out of control. 

If we would only give our worries and trust over to God, we wouldn't have all the problems that plague us, and we wouldn't worry so much about things that are out of our control. Our circumstances would seem so small. 

Seek God's wisdom and read His word for the best advice that trumps any psychologist, doctor, teacher or any human with flaws. There, you will find the best answers...and healing...and security that makes us feel safe...the peace that surpasses all understanding.
