Proverbs 8 – Mission City Challenge

12 “I, Wisdom, live together with good judgment.
    I know where to discover knowledge and discernment.
13 All who fear the Lord will hate evil.
    Therefore, I hate pride and arrogance,
    corruption and perverse speech.
14 Common sense and success belong to me.
    Insight and strength are mine.
15 Because of me, kings reign,
    and rulers make just decrees.
16 Rulers lead with my help,
    and nobles make righteous judgments. ~ Proverbs 8:12-16

Wisdom!!!!!!! Wisdom in life, in every step we make, every choice we make, everything we do. True wisdom is from the Father, in chapter 8 it says that wisdom was before ALL things and is one with the Father.

For me today verse 13 hit me the hardest. “All who FEAR the Lord will hate Evil. Therefore, I hate pride and arrogance, corruption and perverse speech”  The pride I struggle with, the arrogance I struggle with, the corruption I struggle with and the perverse speech I struggle with all are linked to my LACK of FEAR of the Lord. SO……….what it is to fear the Lord?

It’s exactly that FEAR knowing who He is and what He can do with just a word. Fear of the Lord is also AWE of Him. Many Christians think of him as a gentle grandfather rather that a father that loves his child and will discipline him to help him grow into a good, loving, honest, giving human being. There are some that teach we not be afraid of God, there are some that teach we should be afraid of God…. and then there is a perfect balance. How do you find that place? It’s all about RELATIONSHIP with Him. It is IMPOSSIBLE did you hear me? IMPOSSIBLE to know anything about the Father except what you hear from other (and boy that is dangerous) if you do not know Him. You know Him through his WORD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

REST IN THE LORD DAILY — it’s a lifestyle!!!

Now go out and have an EPIC day today
