Secure & Quiet From Fear

“But whoever listens to me will dwell secure and will be at ease, without dread of disaster.”

Proverbs 1:33

See how this is Illustrated in Noah:

Noah did this; he did all that God commanded him. – Genesis 6:22

He (God) blotted out every living thing that was on the face of the ground, man and animals and creeping things and birds of the heavens. They were blotted out from the earth. Only Noah was left, and those who were with him in the ark. – Genesis 7:23

By faith Noah, being warned by God concerning events as yet unseen, in reverent fear constructed an ark for the saving of his household. By this he condemned the world and became an heir of the righteousness that comes by faith. – Hebrews 11:7


Remarks:

“Let us from this, draw the inference, that come what may, God’s people are safe. Let convulsions shake the solid earth, let the skies themselves be rent in twain—yet amid the wreck of worlds—the believer shall be as secure as in the calmest hour of rest. If God cannot save His people under heaven, He will save them in heaven. If the world becomes too hot to hold them, then heaven shall be the place of their reception and their safety.

Be then confident, when you hear of wars, and rumors of wars. Let no agitation distress you—but be quiet from fear of evil. Whatever disaster comes upon the earth—you, beneath the broad wings of Jehovah, shall be secure. Stay yourself upon His promise; rest in His faithfulness, and bid defiance to the blackest future, for there is nothing in it direful for you. Your sole concern should be to show forth to the world the blessedness of hearkening to the voice of wisdom!”
