Beginning of Wisdom

Written by Boyd Bailey

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- July 13, 2012

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding” (Proverbs 9:10).

The fear of the Lord is fundamental to finding wisdom.Without awe of the Almighty there is no access to His insights. Where reverence for His holiness is void, there is lack of understanding into the ways of God. The first step in acquiring wisdom from almighty God is to fear Him. There is a worship of the Lord’s majesty and a dread of His judgment.
His Holy Word—the Bible—is taken to heart as truth for the purpose of life transformation. At first, fear of the Lord may be so overwhelming that it conflicts with love and distracts our desire for intimacy. Anyone who has been broken understands this process. However, once a healthy fear of the Lord has been embraced, there is peace and knowledge in submission to and love for the Holy One.

“He will be the sure foundation for your times, a rich store of salvation and wisdom and knowledge; the fear of the LORD is the key to this treasure” (Isaiah 33:6).

Moreover, we mock God when we move away from the language of fear; He is not one to be mocked. So, as devoted followers of Christ, we sow the seeds of respect, reverence, and fear of the Lord. This discipline of faith results in a harvest of holiness, happiness, and wisdom. Fear of Him leads to knowledge of Him. Therefore, bow before Him on your knees in prayer, and seek His face for forgiveness and relational restoration.

Celebrate together with Christ our conquest over sin, sorrow, and death. What is counter-intuitive on earth is intuitive in heaven. Listen to David admonish his son Solomon, who became the wisest man in the world: “As for you, my son Solomon, know the God of your father, and serve Him with a whole heart and a willing mind; for the LORD searches all hearts, and understands every intent of the thoughts. If you seek Him, He will let you find Him; but if you forsake Him, He will reject you forever” (1 Chronicles 28:9 NASB).

Prayer: What area of my life lacks fear of the Lord, and how can I expose it to accountability?

    Thanks! I really can relate to this because I sense a lot of my wisdom from God comes as I develop my AWE of HIM. Developing our AWE of God is essential to our relationship with HIM and I can see in my life that the level of AWE I have for God is equal to the wisdom I walk in. Developing our AWE-GOD enriches our relationship with HIM and opens the door to HIS Wisdom in our lives! I believe there has never been a time as the time such as this that we need to develop our AWE of God, we need to know of GOD, know of His Holiness! What Do We Know Of Holy?

  6. I’m the business owner of JustCBD label (justcbdstore.com) and am looking to grow my wholesale side of company. I really hope that someone at targetdomain is able to provide some guidance 🙂 I considered that the best way to do this would be to talk to vape stores and cbd retail stores. I was hoping if anyone could suggest a trusted website where I can get CBD Shops B2B Marketing List I am currently looking at creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. On the fence which one would be the most suitable choice and would appreciate any guidance on this. Or would it be simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Ideas?

  7. Pretty! This was an extremely wonderful article. Thanks for supplying these details.

    Can I just say what a comfort to uncover somebody who actually knows what they are discussing on the web. You actually know how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More and more people should look at this and understand this side of your story. I was surprised you are not more popular since you surely possess the gift.

  9. An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a colleague who has been doing a little homework on this. And he in fact ordered me lunch simply because I found it for him… lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending the time to discuss this subject here on your web page.
