TOPIC: THE FEAR OF THE LORD
Psalm 111:10 (NLT)
Prov 1:7, Job 28:28
Everyone who is wise has come to understand the fact that life has a Lord who orders things, and there is more to life than meets the eyes. Wisdom makes any understanding person know this from simple observations of life. It is only the fool that says in his heart that there is no God (see Psalm 14:1). There are many who have said with their mouths and with their pens that there is no God, but not in their hearts. They know in their hearts that they are lying. Some of them are even servants of the devil set up to turn the hearts of the simple-minded into ultimate foolishness.
Since we know that one primary manifestation of divine wisdom is the fear of the Lord, we want to be sure that we are walking in divine wisdom by ensuring that we understand and walk in the fear the Lord. We may not be able to easily know and control whether we are walking in divine wisdom (because everyone is wise in his own eyes), but we can definitely control whether we are walking in the fear of the Lord. If we are walking in the fear of the Lord, we are walking in divine wisdom (see Job 28:28).
Every child of God has the spirit of Christ, this means he has the spirit of wisdom. Many do not walk in their divine wisdom because their hearts have not been renewed to walk in this aspect of their divine nature.
