Walking with Wisdom
Walking with Wisdom!
Who among us couldn’t use some additional wisdom and insight? In two words, no one! As we begin a new month and Lenten journey this week, I recommend a 31-day wisdom walk through the book of Proverbs. The concept of fearing the Lord becoming the first step of our walking with wisdom may seem difficult to grasp for some. They may ask how can fearing God make us wise? Well, first, we must understand what it means to fear the Lord. This term, fear of the Lord, is used to describe a reverence for God, which moves us to acknowledge Him as the Holy One, the sovereign ruler of heaven and earth. The result of such a response begins the acquisition of wisdom. To fear God isn’t about being afraid of God; it’s about having a desire to love and know God, trust Him, serve Him, and be in awe of Him!
Friends, when we commit ourselves to live for God’s purpose rather than our own, we gain greater insight and understanding of Him and His ways. Then the Holy Spirit enables us to see our circumstances and others from God’s perspective. That kind of wisdom reaches beyond mere human perception and provides us with discernment to make decisions that fit into God’s will for our lives. That, along with the knowledge of God continually working for our best interests, empowers and enables us to walk confidently through good and bad times. Those who won’t fear the Lord will never know real wisdom. Only if you genuinely revere God will you listen for His directions, heed His warnings, and walk-through life at His pace with His grace. The result is divine wisdom, insight, and peace, which surpasses our abilities and understanding. So, start walking with wisdom and Godly knowledge today!
Onward and Upward!
