“My son…Proverbs 3:25-26
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.”
My beloved child,
There is one amazing truth which will help you avoid ruin in a disaster zone. It sounds dramatic, but it’s true. Notice the people you see every day – in the news, in your sphere of influence, and maybe even amongst your friends – who encounter sudden disaster. Also take note of the ruin which often overtakes those who flirt with wickedness.
The one amazing truth which will help you avoid such trouble is this: the Lord will be at your side. He will keep you steady and your foot from being snared. With Him, you have no reason to fear.
Please do not misunderstand. You may encounter disastrous circumstances. But because the Lord is at your side, ruin cannot claim you. You are secure for eternity, come what may in this world. This is one amazing truth!
You are fiercely and forever loved.
