“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding. To Him belongs eternal praise.” Psalm 111:10.
I must start with God.
There’s no other approach.
To start without Him is to head immediately in the wrong direction. The further away I go, the less I have His essential guidance.
The start is important but there’s more: I must follow Him. That means that I must stay in “sight” of Him. He must be on my mind. My mind must be full of Him.
To live like that! Wouldn’t it be grand. And it’s there for me to be had.
I must totally surrender myself to Him for the long term. I’ll see Him work in ways I can’t imagine. I’ll say His Words to those who need Him. I will say His Words to those I love.
The relationship is constant. I see Him. I hear Him. I’m tuned into Him.
Surely this will lead to my praising Him, not because things are good but because I’m living life His Way.
Conclusion: Living with God is an all-day event.
