Listen to Me! Thus you can live in peace and safety, unafraid. Listening to Me is the way of wisdom. I make wisdom available to everyone who is willing to hear Me. Wisdom calls aloud in the street, she raises her voice in the public squares—proclaiming the truth openly. Those who ignore her message will cry out for mercy on the day of judgment, but it will be too late. Now is the time to listen!
It is vital for you to hear Me accurately and consistently. If you hear Me inaccurately, you may find yourself worshiping a false god: practicing idolatry. The best safeguard against this deadly deception is studying My Word and meditating on it. As you do so, Scripture takes root and flourishes within you—changing the way you think. My Word is living and powerful, sharper than any two-edged sword—able to accomplish great things in you.
Listening to Me consistently is both a discipline and a matter of the heart. The more convinced you are of My Love for you, the more motivated you are to listen. I have deep, unfailing Love for all who know Me as Savior-God. Look up to Me through eyes of faith, and see My Face shining on you with loving approval. Listen to Me, for this is the way of Peace.
All who listen to me shall live in peace and safety, unafraid.
~ Proverbs 1:33 [TLB]
Wisdom calls aloud in the street, she raises her voice in the public squares; . . . in the gateways of the city she makes her speech: . . . “How long will mockers delight in mockery and fools hate knowledge?”
~ Proverbs 1:20–22
For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
~ Hebrews 4:12 [NKJV]
Let your face shine on your servant; save me in your unfailing love.
~ Psalm 31:16
