Edifier du Jour-Proverbs 3:21-26
21 My son, let them not vanish from your sight; Keep sound wisdom and discretion, 22 So they will be life to your soul And adornment to your neck. 23 Then you will walk in your way securely And your foot will not stumble. 24 When you lie down, you will not be afraid; When you lie down, your sleep will be sweet. 25 Do not be afraid of sudden fear Nor of the onslaught of the wicked when it comes; 26 For the LORD will be your confidence And will keep your foot from being caught.One of the prayer warriors at church gave us verse 24 (by quote and not chapter and verse; on-line concordances are nice) last night. Eileen's been struggling with intense dreams and waking up more drained than when she went to bed. We need to both claim this passage and draw closer to God's wisdom from which that promise flows from. This brings to mind Psalm 119:105 (by way of Amy Grant)-"Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. " However, this part of Proverbs goes a notch further and gives us a warm fuzzy as we go to bed.
