"In the fear of the Lord is an assured strength, and his children shall have hope."
  Proverbs 14:26

In the fear of the Lord is "strong refuge."  

I am so thankful that I get to live in the fear of the Lord and walk in this life by His strength and not my own.  

He is my shield and buckler and my strong tower.  (Psalm 144:2)

"Fret not thyself because of the wicked men, neither be envious for the evildoers.  For they shall soon be cut down like grass, and shall wither as the green herb.  Trust thou in the Lord and do good: dwell in the land, and thou shalt be fed assuredly.  And delight thyself in the Lord, and He shall give thee thine heart's desire."  Psalm 37: 1-4

How do we "fret not" at the wicked men?

We live in a society out of control.  How do we find our security and peace?
Noah lived in such days.  The Word never says that he stumbled in all those years of preaching to non~responsive ears but kept walking with the Lord in obedience~ and was safe during the judgement of the unrighteous.

"But the evil men and deceivers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.  But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned, and which are committed unto thee, knowing of whom thou hast learned them."  II Timothy 3:13-14

"For the mountains shall remove, and the hills shall fall down; but my mercy shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace fall away, saith the Lord, that hath compassion on thee.
O thou afflicted and tossed with the tempest, that hast no comfort, behold, I will lay thy stones
  with the carbuncle, and lay thy foundation with the sapphires, And I will make thy windows of
  emeralds, and thy gates shining stones, and lay thy borders of pleasant stones. 
  And all thy children shall be taught of the Lord, and much peace shall be to thy children.
  In righteousness shalt thou be established, and be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear it: and from fear; for it shall not come near thee. Behold, the enemies shall gather himself, but without me:  whosoever shall gather himself in thee, against thee, shall fall. Behold I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and him that bringeth forth an instrument for this work, and I have created the destroyer to destroy. But all the weapons that are made against thee, shall not prosper: and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgement, thou shalt condemn.  This is the heritage of the Lord's servants, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord."  Isaiah 54:10-13

Such beautiful promises for such troubling times. Take up the heritage of those gone before and walk in righteousness in the midst of a perverse and wicked generation; the Lord is with all those who cry out to Him in holiness and we can take comfort in His promises to us and to our children. 

Whatever lies before us is already in the Lord's hands.  We will carry on with the work of our hands to bring Him glory, to find out His ways and to seek His face~ now more than ever.  Let us find peace and security in "the heritage (the heirloom; estate) of the Lord's servants."
