THE FEAR OF THE LORD IS THE BEGINNING OF WISDOM


Think of the encounters people had with Me in My Word. Think of Moses and the burning bush. Think of Joshua and Job. Think of Paul and John. They all regarded Me as holy. They instinctively knew to bow down before Me. This is wisdom—to acknowledge Me as holy.

The wisdom of man cannot be compared with My wisdom, so why do My children not fear Me as they ought? For My Word says, the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. Not fear as in punishment, for perfect love casts out fear; but fear as in regarding Me as holy.

Those that are wise are those that love My ways. They tremble at My Word. Their only agenda is My agenda. They long to know Me and My ways above all else. They do not bow down to man's philosophies, but view My Word as holy and as their plumb line.

Return to Me, My children. Return to the simplicity of loving, serving and obeying Me by yielding to My wisdom. This is where you will find life. This is where you will find joy. This is where you will find peace. The fear of the Lord is still the beginning of wisdom. Always has been. Always will be.


Proverbs 1:7 Amplified Bible (AMP)

The [reverent] fear of the Lord [that is, worshiping Him and regarding Him as truly awesome] is the beginning and the preeminent part of knowledge [its starting point and its essence];

But arrogant fools despise [skillful and godly] wisdom and instruction and self-discipline.


1 Corinthians 1:20-25 New International Version (NIV)

20 Where is the wise person? Where is the teacher of the law? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 21 For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe. 22 Jews demand signs and Greeks look for wisdom, 23 but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, 24 but to those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. 25 For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.
