Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom
The reverent and worshipful fear of the Lord is the beginning (the chief and choice part) of Wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight and understanding. Prov 9:10 (Amp). When you realise that the creator of the universe can change our eternal destiny based on the choices we make, it can only create in us a desire to understand His ways for life. In one sense, it creates a reverend and worshipful fear to ensure that we live a life that honours God. His ways are so far above our ways, whilst those who desire to go their own way think that God wants to restrict them, yet those who seek knowledge of God’s ways actually find that God wants to liberate them and set them free. Jesus wants to swap your burdens and pain for His free gift of eternal life and freedom in Him. Thank God for His Word and Holy Spirit today which brings us into greater revelation of the Father’s love and will for our lives.
