Thought For The Week
7The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Not knowing what the future holds can cause us to live in a state of fear and panic, and if we are not careful this fear can consume us, leading to sickness and ill-
However, in today’s verse we are reminded that God is the only One we should fear – a reverential fear, where we stand in awe of God and humbly recognise His beauty, His sovereign power and His holiness – He truly is an awesome God.
We all need a deep sense of His greatness and who He is, and as we grow deeper in the knowledge of who He is, He will fill us with His love, and faith will replace fear.
Lord, help us to grow closer to You and to come to a better and greater knowledge of who You are, and may we come to the understanding that Your power residing in us, is far greater than the power of our fears.
Grace and Peace.
