The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Proverbs 1:7

The fear of God is the START or beginning of heavenly wisdom.

Reverence and respect to higher authority, GOD

Two TYPES of Wisdom

Earthly wisdom

1. Operated by pride.

2. Gained through experience, knowledge or education, reading of books, going to school, learning from experts.  This wisdom according to James is bitter envy, and is full of selfish ambition

Heavenly Wisdom

1.  Operated by humility, and honor and is gained through honest living. 

2. Illustrated in the lives of those who live according to the precepts of God’s Holy Word; by living a good lives, acceptable, and pleasing to GOD.

3. all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. 

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.

" Out in the open wisdom calls aloud, she raises her voice in the public square"
Proverbs 1:20

If you find yourself making bad decisions, and choices, it is not too late to turn around, and seek for wisdom. God gives wisdom to anyone who asks.

Ask and it shall be given to you, seek and you shall find, knock and the door will be open to you. For everyone who asks, receives, anyone that seeks, finds, and to those that are knocking, the door will be OPEN.
Matthew 7:7

When you ask, make sure you believe, and trust, that God is who he says he is, and that he is a rewarder of them who diligently seek him. Don’t allow doubt to cut in, because doubt throws to and from, like the waves, and fear stagnates action. Allow faith to work it’s way, and perform miracles.

Let's Affirm

We are wise and discerning in all things concerning us, our situations, and circumstances.

We walk by faith and not by sight.

We trust and believe that God is able, mighty, and powerful ūüĎčūüėĄ


Heavenly Father, I desire to seek your heavenly wisdom, and draw your 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, to direct me, and teach me your ways. I give my all to you, I surrender my ways, Be the LORD of my life, and guide me into all TRUTH, amen!
