"A prudent man perceives danger and seeks refuge; the inexperienced goes on and suffers the consequences. " Proverbs 27:12
The wise man perceives evil and hides himself under the wings of the Lord. He goes to seek refuge in the Strong Tower, which is God, in order to remain secure (Proverbs 18:10), for He is an ally, protector of those who seek refuge in Him. He who fears the Father, seeking in him strength and protection, will be blessed in all his ways with protection and security, "He who fears the Lord has a sure fortress, a refuge for his children." Proverbs 14:26.
Temptations and tribulations come, but being in Christ, the house of the wise man will not be shaken. We can place our trust in the Almighty. He does not change and is not shaken under any circumstances. It remains the same in all situations.
We can not turn away from God and seek refuge in the things of this lost world that will perish. The Lord is the way and source of life. As the apostle Peter said, "Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life "(John 6:68). There is no other way to go. Christ is the truth and the life.
