Hello, today my sister and I are doing our post together in Proverbs 1:32-33 which says:
“For the waywardness of the simple will kill them,
and the complacency of fools will destroy them;
33 but whoever listens to me will live in safety
and be at ease, without fear of harm.”
Solomon is telling of Wisdom, and the things she cries out. This is part of the wise speech that wisdom made. She is saying that those who are simple, and stray away, are killed by their waywardness. Yet, whoever listens to wisdom could be at ease without fear.
We are like the simple. We are wayward, and we would’ve gotten ourselves killed. But God sent us wisdom: He sent us Jesus. Jesus took on our punishment, and gave us wisdom. He died in our place, and now we can live without fear of harm. Because of Jesus we live in safety; and even after we die we live eternally in Heaven with Jesus!
We can always trust in Jesus, and when we do we can be at ease and have no fear of harm. Even though our physical bodies may be tortured and persecuted; our spirit is safe with Jesus, and we are safe from the wrath of God! Praise the Lord!
Peace and Love, Joy Cleveland and,
