THE FEAR OF THE LORD

Today’s Devotional


“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.”

Proverbs 1:7 KJV


Thoughts on Today’s Verse…..

The key words in this verse are Wisdom, Instruction, and Understanding (Understanding Knowledge). Wisdom is the most key word meaning, “skill in living”. The skill to live life successfully. Instruction, refers to moral discipline of one’s life. And Understanding, means the ability to distinguish between true and false, good and bad, what matters most and what does not matter at all. When you first read this verse you say to yourself, I don’t fear the Lord, I love Him. But “the fear of the Lord” really means, submission to the Lord and His revelation. When one is afraid of something, he runs from it or submits to it. So the key word is Wisdom, if you do not put your trust and Knowledge in Him, you will never have Faith. When you have Faith you can call upon Him and you shall seek Him, and He will listen. Because of your Wisdom, you will not fear Him, but shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil. So why not put your Trust and Faith in Jesus Christ your Savior and let Him give you the Wisdom and Instruction to guide you to eternal happiness. Amen
