Proverbs: God's Wisdom for Daily Living

 

Devotional Scripture:

 

Proverbs 19:23(KJV):
23 The fear of the LORD tendeth to life: and he that hath it shall abide satisfied; he shall not be visited with evil.

Proverbs 19:23(AMP):
23 The reverent, worshipful fear of the Lord leads to life, and he who has it shall rest satisfied; he cannot be visited with (actual) evil.

 

Thought for the Day

When one honors the Lord, he can live in a place of provision far above other men. However, we need to define both the "fear of the Lord" and "visited with evil" before we can understand what this verse means.

As we saw in Day 4, the "fear of the Lord" is not a tormenting fear, but rather a respect and honor for God and His Word. To reverence God by obeying His Word will lead to abundant life and satisfied rest: "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever" (Psalm 111:10).

"Come, ye children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear of the LORD. What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good? Keep thy tongue from evil, and thy lips from speaking guile. Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it" (Psalm 34:11-14).

What does it mean that we shall not be "visited with evil?" If we honor God, we do not release the death principle in our lives; therefore, we will not be visited by the consequences of what we have sown. It does not mean that the devil will never attack us, but rather that God will give us the way to overcome him. Therefore, evil will not actually hurt us. We can rest in God, unafraid of evil. When we are "born again," we have access to God and all the good He desires for us. Jesus came to destroy the works of the devil (1 John 3:8). Because Jesus overcame the devil through His death on the cross, no weapon formed against us shall prosper (Isaiah 54:17).

There are many promises of deliverance in the Bible that we can stand upon, such as Psalm 91:3-7 and Job 5:19-22 which says, "He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. In famine he shall redeem thee from death: and in war from the power of the sword. Thou shalt be hid from the scourge of the tongue: neither shalt thou be afraid of destruction when it cometh. At destruction and famine thou shalt laugh: neither shalt thou be afraid of the beasts of the earth." We can also look at the lives of many Bible saints and see how these scriptures protected them in their time of trial. For example, God fulfilled the promise of Job 5:22, for the Israelites and Daniel. In Exodus, the Jews were protected from the plagues sent upon the Egyptians. He shut the mouths of lions for Daniel. God has not changed; His power has not diminished. He is the same yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8). He is no respecter of persons! If we respect His Word, He will keep His promises and do the same things for us today that He did long ago for those whose narratives are recorded throughout the Bible. He is simply looking for those who dare to believe Him!

Prayer Devotional for the Day

 

Dear heavenly Father, I praise You today for Your greatness!! Create in me a heart that will always believe You and trust in Your Word. I do want to always have the "fear of the Lord" in my heart. I then will not have to fear any man or what any man would do unto me, as You are greater than all men. Thank you for Your many promises of provision and protection throughout Your Word. I claim them for my life and for those in my family. Deliver me from any doubt and unbelief that would keep me from receiving all that You have promised me in the Bible. I ask this in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
