When we walk in God's wisdom, our paths in life are peaceful: "Her [wisdom's] ways are highways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to those who lay hold on her; and happy (blessed, fortunate, to be envied) is everyone who holds her fast" (Prov. 3:17-18 AMP).

Now, that's the way we want to live: in pleasantness and peace! The Companion Bible says that peace in Hebrew means well-being or prosperity. "Wisdom is a tree of life. God's blessings come as we hold fast to His wisdom" (v. 18). Through the wisdom of God we can have a tree of life and live in God's Garden again!

Now let's see why wisdom works so proficiently in this natural realm: "The Lord by skillful and godly Wisdom has founded the earth; by understanding He has established the heavens" (Prov. 3:19 AMP).

Everything in earth and in heaven was created to respond to God's wisdom. That's why wisdom works to drive back the enemy's works of darkness, such as sickness, disease, poverty and oppression.

You see, this earth was created by the wisdom of God, so it obeys the wisdom of God. And when we walk in God's wisdom and live according to His ways, evil is defeated. God's wisdom and understanding make life work right even in the midst of a dark, dangerous world full of stress and turmoil. The Light of God overcomes all the darkness.

On the other hand, this earth was not created to respond to the laws of sin and death. It rebels against those renegade laws that the enemy introduced into this natural realm with the Fall of Man. When we operate contrary to God's wisdom, heaven and earth are hindered from responding on our behalf. God's enemy is given place to operate against us because we are living according to the laws of sin and death.

You can't live ruled by sin and death and arrive at any kind of good destination on this earth. Sin and death aren't going anywhere good.

But you can choose to live in wisdom, honoring God and walking in truth, mercy and lovingkindness. When you walk in wisdom, your life just purrs right along on the highways of pleasantness and the pathways of peace. And you'll be able to walk securely and in confident trust through a very insecure world, "for the Lord shall be your confidence, firm and strong, and shall keep your foot from being caught [in a trap or some hidden danger]" (Prov. 3:26 AMP).

I guarantee you, when danger, trials, or bad situations come your way, you'll be so glad that you have been walking in the wisdom of God. You'll be so glad you can go before the throne of God with great confidence to receive grace and help in time of need (Heb. 4:16), because you have been doing the will of God.
