Father, this passage speaks volumes to me of the value of wisdom and discernment in fighting doubt and curbing fear. It teaches me to reverence You and your attributes that guide and protect me. Thank you for reminding me of the certain ruin of the wicked, because the writer says “when it comes,” not “if it comes.” Thank you for this assurance in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.
 
“My son, do not lose sight of these—keep sound wisdom and discretion, and they will be life for your soul and adornment for your neck. Then you will walk on your way securely, and your foot will not stumble. If you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet. Do not be afraid of sudden terror or of the ruin of the wicked, when it comes, for the Lord will be your confidence and will keep your foot from being caught.” (Proverbs 3: 21-26 ESV)
