The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endures forever. — Proverbs 111:10
The Word of God brings wisdom to all that we do in life. The reason why we sometimes feel lost or without clear direction may simply be our failure to consult and follow the wisdom of God as found in the bible. To function effectively we must remain humble and trainable. We must have a reverential fear of the Lord. The fear of the Lord is where wisdom begins.
Proverbs 10:27 — The fear of the Lord prolongs life, but the years of the wicked will be short.
Proverbs 14:27 — The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, that one may turn away from the snares of death.
Proverbs 22:4 — The reward for humility and fear of the Lord is riches and honor and life.
Psalm 34:7 — The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and delivers them.
