Daily Encouragement: Day 171

From Handbook to Wisdom, Day 171

GROW IN THE FEAR OF GOD

The fear of the Lord, that is wisdom,
and to depart from evil is understanding.
(Job 28:28)

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom;
all who practice His commandments have a good
understanding. His praise endures forever.
(Psalm 111:10) 

Lord God, I ask that I would learn to live more fully in the awe and fear of Your holy name. May this be the foundation and wellspring of true wisdom in my life. I want to cling to Your truth and gladly obey Your commandments so that I will grow in wisdom and understanding. Amen.
