Proverbs 14:26 – Fearful Confidence

Today’s Readings: Ruth 2:1‐4:22, John 4:43‐54, Psalm 105:16‐36, Proverbs 14:26‐27

His Word: Proverbs 14:26 In the fear of the Lord one has strong confidence,
and his children will have a refuge.

my words: The first half of the proverb seems like an apparent contradiction.  How do you find confidence in fear?  Within the context of the second half of the verse, it would seem to imply that the confidence we find in the fear of the Lord is a confidence in the refuge he provides.  Are you struggling with confidence?  Expose yourself to anything that prompts you to grow in a healthy fear of God.

Do you want your children to have real refuge?  Fear the Lord.

Apply: I want to spend time meditating on the holiness of God.
