Ps 111:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom;
all who follow his precepts have good understanding.
To him belongs eternal praise.
recently i’ve been praying for wisdom and discernment. i want to grow in my relationship with God into a more mature christian and i want to be able to serve him better! i was reading ps111 this morning on the way to work and it just hit me - i don’t really fear God.
growing up in a christian family and being churched all my life has been an awesome thing in a lot of ways, but i think that i’ve been in danger of becoming too comfortable with God - familiarity breeds contempt, or at least indifference.
if i want wisdom, i need to fear God! that doesn’t mean i have to quake and tremble every time that i think about God, but it does mean that i need to approach him with a lot more awe and reverence.
if i’m aware of God all the time, i will live differently! i will be a lot more focussed on glorifying him in how i live, and i think that would be the beginnings of wisdom…
