The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline.
So many things come down to this word.
F E A R.
If you fear Me then you will be and act differently than you currently do. So many don’t truly fear Me. This is because since they can’t see or touch Me they don’t think that there’s anything to fear from Me either. They live with a lack of conscience, not worrying or concerning themselves with what comes after this life which is so much more than any human can comprehend. There is much that is not understood.
You don’t need to fear Me as in being afraid of Me… I am a God of love who adores you. You should understand that it’s a reverent fear of Me that is necessary… a respect and understanding that there is nothing without Me… I am… I am knowledge, I am truth, I am understanding, I am life, I am love… I am everything.
When you realize that you need to live this fundamental principle then you will start to gain more wisdom. A fool rejects this, choosing to rely on themselves and ultimately denying Me. Hold fast to the seed I have planted in you. Grow in reverence and love for Me and I’ll open the flood gates of wisdom and knowledge to you.
