“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction”
We can tell if we truly fear the Lord. How?
- We joyfully delight in the Word of God.
Psalm 112:1 tells us, “Praise you the Lord. Blessed is the man who fears the LORD, who delights greatly in his commandments.”
- We passionately apply God’s Word to our everyday lives.
Psalm 128:1 proclaims, “Blessed is every one that fears the Lord, that walks in His Ways.”
- We place confidence in the promises of God.
Psalm 147:11 has said to each of us, “The Lord takes pleasure in those who fear Him, in those who hope in his mercy.”
We need to get back to God’s Word! Anything that takes the place of God’s Word leads to idolatry.
