The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom, and instruction.
To fear is to reverence, and respect God, to honor him, and the principles of his holy WORD.
The bible states that reverence to GOD, and respecting his authority in our lives, is the START of heavenly wisdom. Not wisdom of common sense, or present reality, but insight, and understanding, that comes from above; foolish to men, but delight to them who receive it, and accept it in their lives.
To reject God’s wisdom is to REJECT spiritual knowledge, and heavenly understanding, and to embrace foolishness, where destruction and death is your closest companion.
To embrace wisdom, we must FIRST reject foolishness. By rejecting one, we embrace the other. We must make a decision, then turn! As if making a U-turn on a road, from that, which is bad, to that which is good.
We must STOP, and turn, in our sinful behavior, and hand over our mess to God. We cannot do this on our own! We must invite the Holy Spirit to do a work in us, by transforming our mind, and renewing our spirit. We give God the authority to completely change our mind, realign our thoughts, and order our emotions, and feelings to fit his. NOT LEANING on our own understanding, and feeling, but seek his will, and purpose for our lives.
When we reverence God, and his HOLY scriptures, we grow in knowledge, and understanding of God, the creator of heaven, and earth. We are no longer seeking God, because of fear or danger of hellfire, and punishment, we are seeking God because we respect him, and reverence him, in all the details of our lives, and desire to get closer to him.
When we love our family, we do everything to please them. We put them ahead of everything, and everyone. When we reverence GOD, we seek to please him, and his principles, putting him AHEAD of everything, and everyone.
Let us draw knowledge, and understanding from above, so that we can grow in our insight, and perfect ourselves, in the knowledge of GOD.
Heavenly Father, I desire to seek your wisdom, and draw knowledge, from your holy WORD. I desire to gain understanding, and insight that is not of this world. I turn from my wicked ways, of pleasing my flesh, and I surrender to you, the ALMIGHTY GOD. I give my all to you and desire to be pleasing unto you, in all of my ways. Be the LORD of my life, and guide me into all TRUTH, amen!
