Proverbs 29:18 Rejecting God's word results in chaos. Understanding God's word produces peace.
Where there is no revelation, the people cast off restraint;
But happy is he who keeps the law.
-Proverbs 29:18 (NKJV)
A number of years ago in America, a movement was started to remove God and His word from the public square. Effort was made to take prayer out of schools, remove the Ten Commandments from courthouses and censor political speech of pastors. The results have been catastrophic as people are "casting off restraint. Our "culture war" has fundamentally changed America for the worse. Violence, vicious crime and low regard for human life are the offspring of rejecting wisdom. Everyone is searching for "happiness", but they are looking in the wrong places. Peace of mind and self-control are rewards to those who discover and understand God's word
Matthew chapter 11 verses 28 and 29 teaches us that when we submit to Jesus and allow the Holy Spirit to help us understand God's word, our mental anguish is replaced by His peace!
" Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest
Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls"
