YOU HAVE NO WISDOM BECAUSE YOU
have no fear of God. “The reverent and worshipful fear of the Lord is the beginning of Wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight and understanding.” Proverbs 9:10 It is the beginning and starting point of wisdom!
How do you know if you have the fear of the Lord? If you do not hate sin, in yourself and others and love righteousness; you lack the fear of the Lord. If you mock the holy things of God, speak evil and slander others, defile God’s house and make it a den of thieves; you lack the fear of the Lord. If you continually operate from a position of self-righteousness and pride; you lack the fear of the Lord. If you rebel against God’s authority here on earth; you lack the fear of the Lord. If you say, “I can live like I want because I’m under grace!” Then you truly lack the fear of the Lord and you have no wisdom.
Grace is not freedom to live how you want and according to your will; grace is freedom from the bondage of sin and the devil. Grace produces obedience and we obey Him because we love Him and the Spirit within us compels us to honor Him. Do you even remember the Cross? How dare we demand our right in anything! Obedience is the evidence that the Spirit of God is at work within us. The fear of the Lord is a cleansing agent and when you understand this, then will you first begin to operate in wisdom.
