A Lesson from Proverbs 1

Did God Drown the Egyptian Army?

Pharaoh’s army will not make it to dry land.

My Bible-reading has again brought me around to Proverbs–which turned out, yesterday, to be exactly what my spirit needed. Let me share these verses with you (Chapter 1: 29-33).

“For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord: they would none of my counsel; they despised all my reproof. Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices. For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.

“But whoso harkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.”

What with our midterm elections coming up, and the whole world knowing that the Democrats will cheat, with exceedingly wicked and ungodly persons in positions of vast wealth and power looking to impose their wickedness on all the nations… we do need some assurance that God will only let them go so far before He intervenes to save us.

O Lord! Deal with your enemies as you dealt with Pharaoh’s armies at the Red Sea; and let our eyes and souls see the work of your hands. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
