The Fear of The Lord

The Fear of The Lord

(Proverbs 9:10 NKJV)

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.

Every believer should have a good understanding of what the fear of the Lord is. A revelation of this truth will not only liberate the saints of God but will also lead them to a place of great reward. Let us start by looking at what the fear of the Lord is not.

It is not being afraid of God. God is love and the Bible says that perfect love casts out all fear. So, God will never tolerate anything in the family of fear. Fear is the nature of the devil. Without fear, the devil is totally incapacitated.

How then can God encourage His children to be fearful in dealing with Him? “The fear of the Lord” is a phrase that denotes reverence, respect and honor. It is this kind of attitude that releases the wisdom of God in a believer’s life.

The fear of the Lord will make the believer obey the instructions and commandments of God. Make up your mind today that you will keep the door of wisdom open in your life by honoring the Lord in all your ways.

Let wisdom flow freely by maintaining an attitude of reverence and honor unto the Lord.



I have a strong foundation of wisdom for every aspect of my life. I do not live by the natural wisdom of this world, but I do operate by the divine wisdom of God. Christ, the wisdom of God, lives within me; I know the deep secrets of God. I walk with the wise, so I cannot be destroyed.

Evil communications do not proceed out of my mouth, but that which is good for the building up of others. My mouth is a well of life and wisdom flows out of it continually. My faith is not built on the wisdom of this world but on the power of God. I function in life by the wisdom that the Holy Spirit teaches.

I am very discerning of spiritual things because the wisdom of God is at work in me. I pay attention to the word of God, which is able to make me wise unto health, protection, deliverance and all-round soundness. I search the Scriptures daily and I always receive revelations and wisdom for a victorious living.

The devil cannot comprehend my life because I am founded on the wisdom of God. The wisdom of God works all things out for my good. My life is advancing because I am increasing in divine wisdom. The secrets of God for my life are revealed unto me. The eyes of my understanding are enlightened because I have the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of God.

I have access to the hidden wisdom that God has ordained for my glory. I love correction and reproof. I am open to wise counsel and my destiny is protected from destruction. I maintain a teachable spirit and adhere to godly instructions. I have the mind of Christ and I reign in life by the supernatural wisdom that comes from above.
