The FEAR OF THE LORD
Also in russian, for my sister, Olga
In the beginning of each day I like to read the book of Proverbs. Today this scripture was highlighted in my spirit, so I am sharing!
⚡⚡The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, But fools despise wisdom and instruction.⚡⚡
Proverbs 1:7 NKJV
When you desire wisdom, you might as well give up everything that stands in the way of you, and what God has in store for you.
Wisdom cannot be our companion when foolishness is our delight. Wisdom cannot lead us, when foolishness has been given the go, to rule in our lives. Wisdom cannot be our pursuit when we dishonor God, and disrespect his commands, and run after what displeases him.
In order to gain wisdom, we must give up foolishness!
We must Repent
Turn from that which is bad, to that which is good, and beneficial in our walk with God.
Wisdom STARTS with decision to pursue God and all that he has in store for us. Wisdom STARTS when we willingly surrender our earthly pursuits, and desires, and seek heavenly things above all other things. Wisdom STARTS when we give God respect, and honor him, in all if our dealings, and put down all that dishonors, and displeases him.
Until then we will selfishly pursue that which is desirable to our eyes, fulfilling to our flesh, and feeding our ego; our own ways of thinking, our selfish needs and desires, the path that leads to destruction, and away from wisdom.
Without wisdom, we cannot proceed, without wisdom we cannot move forward! Get wisdom, get understanding through daily pursuit after God, AND then do everything in your power to keep it
