Proverbs 14:16: "A wise man feareth, and departeth from evil: but the fool rageth, and is confident."

Psalms 2:1: "Why do the heathen rage and the people imagine a vain thing?"

The verse from Psalms 2:1 is almost repeated in Acts 4:25. "Who by the mouth of the servant David hast said, 'Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine vain things?'"

The people today as in days gone by desire a society that is not what we have. 

God Himself has imagined that his creation would have more love and respect for Him. He is so full of Love and Grace! 

Look at Acts 4:26: "The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord, and against his Christ." 

Proverbs 6:34: "For jealousy is the rage of a man: therefore he will not spare in the day of vengeance. (6:35). He will not regard any ransom; neither will he rest content, though thou givest many gifts."

Proverbs 29:9 "If a wise man contendeth with a foolish man, whether he rage or laugh, there is no rest."

Proverbs 29:11 "A fool uttereth all his mind: but a wise man keepeth it in till afterwards."

Good advice...walk on.

In the book of Daniel, chapter 3, we see King Nebuchadnezzar furious with Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego. They trusted God to help them.

God speaking: "They return, but not to the most High: they are like a deceitful bow: their princes shall fall by the sword for the rage of their tongue: this shall be their derision in the land of Egypt."

Psalms 2:4: "He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision."

God rages and laughs. He understands. In that furnace, long ago, Daniel 3:25: "...Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God."

Philippians 2:7: " But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men."

Walk with Him. He walks with you.
