Proverbs 3:23-24 (ESV)

23 Then you will walk on your way securely,

and your foot will not stumble.

24 If you lie down, you will not be afraid;

when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.

If the son follows the father’s wise teaching, he will live in security. Whether he walks or lies down, he will be safe. At no time is he left unprotected. How can harm come to the one under the watchful eyes of the Lord? Those who live according to the Lord’s commands will even sleep peacefully because they are sheltered by his great power and care. Does this mean nothing painful will ever come to the righteous? No.Those who love and obey God can and will suffer in this life, but nothing in all of creation is able to touch the soul of the woman who belongs to the Lord. And nothing takes God by surprise. Those who live wisely know that anything unpleasant that comes their way has been filtered through the loving hand of an all-powerful God.
