GOD PAUSE: Do you have a favorite book of the Bible? I would have to say that mine is probably the book of Psalms and also Proverbs. Proverbs has been called the book of unfiltered wisdom. So much can be said in just one short sentence. I was just reading in Proverbs 29:25 that “Fear and intimidation is a trap that holds you back. But when you place your confidence in the Lord, you will be seated in the high place.” Dear Lord, there is such a tendency to be afraid of what others might say, or think or even threaten to do. Help us to trust You. It puts us in a high place, away from fear's reach and power. Amen and amen.
