“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.”
- Wisdom is the application of knowledge. To know who God is and to understand His sovereignty and greatness is one thing, but to humble yourself and submit to God is the exemplification of wisdom. We cannot be wise or understand the good things or the bad things in this life until we acknowledge and submit to who God is and who we are. God is the Creator; we are the created. When we place something created above the Creator; we have placed an idol above Him. Confusion and anxiety exist when God is not in control, but the result of following Him is peace.
- Are you your own idol?
Proverbs 10:10 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.”
