There are moments when fear and worry creep in, but we combat them with the word of God. I tend to let my mind get away from me when I am focused on the trouble in the world or the trouble that is on my doorstep. I feel trapped at those times, utterly hopeless. Proverbs provides wisdom that helps balance what God intends for us to do in the face of adversity.
You’re blessed when you meet Lady Wisdom, when you make friends with Madame Insight. She’s worth far more than money in the bank; her friendship is better than a big salary. Her value exceeds all the trappings of wealth; nothing you could wish for holds a candle to her. With one hand she gives long life, with the other she confers recognition. Her manner is beautiful, her life wonderfully complete. She’s the very Tree of Life to those who embrace her. Hold her tight—and be blessed! With Lady Wisdom, God formed Earth; with Madame Insight, he raised Heaven. They knew when to signal rivers and springs to the surface, and dew to descend from the night skies.
Proverbs 3:13-20 MSG
Fear generally comes from what we don’t know so it is beneficial to fill our selves with the wisdom of God who is all seeing and all knowing.
God gives out Wisdom free,
is plainspoken in Knowledge and Understanding.
He’s a rich mine of Common Sense for those who live well,
a personal bodyguard to the candid and sincere.
He keeps his eye on all who live honestly,
and pays special attention to his loyally committed ones.
—-Proverbs 2:6-8 MSG
And all you have to do is ask!
