Apostle Grace Lubega
Proverbs 22:3 (KJV); A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished.
A prudent man foresees evil and hides.
But how exactly is he hidden?
In Psalm 31:20, the Bible says, “Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy presence from the pride of man: thou shalt keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues.”
What hides the prudent man from evil is the presence of God.
This means that men who have cultivated a habit of dwelling in the presence of God and have built a consistent life of communion with the Lord are hidden by Him.
The presence of God is the secret place the Bible refers to in Psalm 91. The man who dwells in this place abides under the shadow of the Almighty.
Tragedy, accidents and constant afflictions tend to make a permanent address in the lives of people who do not know how to consistently keep in prayer.
The more time you spend in the presence of God, the more you are hidden from the attacks of the enemy and their consequences. Even if they dared to come against you, they can never destroy you.

PRAYER: My Father, I thank You for this word. Thank You for the wisdom on how to live life safe from the attacks of the enemy. My relationship with You is deepening every day. As I spend more time in Your presence, I am sheltered from wicked and unreasonable people, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
