Psalm 111:9 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding. To him belongs eternal praise.
Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and discipline.
In order to know and fear God, I need to read scripture. If I don’t read the Word left for us by God, how can I ever begin to know Him? This has been brought home to me so clearly over the last two years. I have read scripture from time to time over the years. I have attended church, read along with assigned readings in bible studies. I always sensed my relationship with God felt closer and more genuine when I was reading the Bible more regularly. I can’t ever “know” God, but I have certainly experienced growing closer to Him. I can feel this in my heart. God’s Word is for us. It is our path to wisdom. Lord, I am so thankful for this gift from you. Amen
