TOPIC: HOW DOES WISDOM COMES (PART 2)?

Scripture: Psalm 111: 10. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.

Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter! Yesterday we began to explore the matter of wisdom that is so vital to our success in life!

We asked a question where did wisdom come from? And we discovered from the scriptures that Wisdom comes from the practice of fear of God(Job. 28:28).

We went further to examine what does it mean to have the fear of God and today we shall continue to look at what does it mean to have the fear of God.


What does it mean to have the fear of God?

1. It means to stand in awe of God
2. It means to have an exalted view of God.( For details check yesterday meditation)

3. To fear God means to humble ourselves before Him. You can’t be walking in pride and arrogance and claim to fear God (Prov. 8:13)


Proverbs 8: 13. The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.

4.The fear of God is to adore him. It means to surrender to God In love. You are not coharse, compelled or force to do anything for God.

You render your service as an acts of love. And because you love Him above all else, you can trust Him because whom you love you don’t suspect! Many of us can not trust God because something is wrong with our love for God! To fear God therefore is to revere and glorify and love him above all else.

5. It also means to have a childlike attitude towards God! It is to relate to Him as a child relates to his strong, respectable father. We respect and honor the Lord, and we are afraid of displeasing Him and as such we obey Him.

6. It means to dwell upon His beautiful, glorious holiness which is the very opposite of sin and evil, and to revere God and know that He loves us so much that He desires us to hate and turn away from sin.

Proverbs 8: 13. The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.

The fear of God is to hate what God hates! This is why we are admonished:

2 Corinthians 7: 1. Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

Abraham went to Egypt and he saw something that made to conclude that there’s no fear of God there:

Genesis 20: 11. And Abraham said, Because I thought, Surely the fear of God is not in this place; and they will slay me for my wife’s sake.

Beloved, the fear of God should be a life style of the redeemed! Lack of the fear of God is an Egyptian lifestyle and can not birth the wisdom of God because the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom (Ps.111:10).

How does the fear of God bring wisdom?

1. The fear of God produce knowledge and knowledge is the base for wisdom:

Proverbs 1: 7. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

2. The fear of God is a confidence booster and when confidence is on ground wisdom is welcome:

Proverbs 14: 26. In the fear of the LORD is strong confidence: and his children shall have a place of refuge* .

3. The fear of God gives you life because wisdom for avoiding sins and habit that can destroyed your life is released to you.

Proverbs 14: 27. The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.

4. It gives you a covenant platform that enables you to access secrets that that make you a star:

Psalm 25: 14. The secret of the LORD is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.

Remember this : Heaven is real and hell is real! The decision to spend eternity with God is in your hands. Take the right decision today.

Prayer points:

– Father thank you for your word to me today.
– Lord I received grace to reference you all the days of my life in Jesus name.

Prophetic Declaration:

– I prophesy the release of Grace to walk in the fear of God.
– The Wisdom from above that guarantee all round success recieve it now in the name of Jesus
