Fear of the Lord is the foundation of true knowledge….
This is a new day! I love to daydream about what lies ahead for me and my family. How will today be different from yesterday? What things will we accomplish? Whom will we meet? Will our lives look different tonight when you lay our heads on our pillows and close our eyes?
As a new day begins, I encourage you to do something different. I encourage you to commit yourself to discovering what God thinks about any decision you need to make. These words from Proverbs say it all: “Fear of the Lord is the foundation of true knowledge….” In this verse the word “fear” doesn’t mean to be afraid of God, it means to have reverence for God, to understand that He alone is the God of the universe. Because He created everything, including you, He knows what is truly best for you no matter what decision you need to make.
Today, why not start seeking God’s knowledge? Ask God to teach you whatever it is He wants you to learn today and reaffirm to Him your desire to seek His true knowledge in every decision you make.
