Proverbs 21:29 - A wicked man displays a bold face, But as for the upright, he makes his way sure.
Words to Ponder
In the midst of Paradise with all its wondrous beauty, if God Himself had not come and walked with Adam in the cool of the day it would not have been a very happy place, for unfallen man's delights was in God Himself. His gifts would not supply His place. We have lost Paradise, but we have not lost the Lord. We have got back our joy, though we have not yet got back Paradise. We can find all that will make us happy in Him. It is meeting with the Lord personally, face to face, that gives rest. The blood gives the conscience rest, but the heart craves something more, and that is fellowship with Him who gave us that atoning blood and sprinkled it on our souls. - Andrew Bonar (1810-92)
