Wisdom is available

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding.” Psalm 111:10.

My relationship with God starts with awe of Him.  I am nothing.  He is everything.

If I believe that He is in this room with me, and I do, my interactions are at a different level than with people.

I can’t reduce God to the “Santa Claus” level: “I want this.  Give me that.”

In the presence of God, I may be unable to say anything!  If He interacts with me, I treasure every word/thought.

I am so impressed with Him, that I search for the things He has said to others.  I will look for guidance in His Word and seek diligently to understand them.

I love the promise that if I chase Him accurately, I will be rewarded with “good understanding.”  Who doesn’t want such a thing?

Life is filled with choices.  If I am in awe of God, and actively seek His Wisdom, I can learn what He wants me to do.

Conclusion: I must approach God in awe or I am minimizing Him.  I need His guidance.
