I appreciate all there is to learn from the Proverbs. God’s Word is full of wisdom to help me through life. Proverbs 3:7 warns against self-sufficiency – thinking my way. The verse then reminds me to fear the Lord. Turning from evil should be a natural part of fearing the Lord.
I find verse 8 interesting – healing and refreshment are a direct result of fearing the Lord. I believe in getting medical care where appropriate. However, I wonder how much trouble we cause ourselves through our own wisdom. Hmm. Something to ponder.
Dear Heavenly Father, please show me where I follow my own wisdom. Help me to fear You and turn away from evil. Thank You for the healing and refreshment You give.
I pray this in Jesus’ name.
God is so good.
