Do you seek wise counsel in God’s Word?

Are you listening to the Lord?

Is calamity, terror, storms, distress and anguish your lot for ignoring counsel?

Must the Lord mock you for your disdain of His Word?

Are you dreading disaster?

Proverbs 1:5 (ESV) Let the wise hear and increase in learning, and the one who understands obtain guidance, {or wise counsel (NKJV)}

Proverbs 1:24-27 (ESV)
24 Because I have called and you refused to listen, have stretched out my hand and no one has heeded,
25 because you have ignored all my counsel and would have none of my reproof,
26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when terror strikes you,
27 when terror strikes you like a storm and your calamity comes like a whirlwind, when distress and anguish come upon you.

Proverbs 1:29-30 (ESV)
29 Because they hated knowledge and did not choose the fear of the Lord,
30 would have none of my counsel and despised all my reproof,

Proverbs 1:33 (ESV) …but whoever listens to me will dwell secure and will be at ease, without dread of disaster.”
