You Can’t Have One Without the Other

Wisdom and prayer go together

You can’t have one without the other.

 

No one who is wise is prayerless

And no one who is prayerless will ever be wise

 

You will never attain wisdom apart from the presence of God

Wisdom is not education or diplomas or degrees

Wisdom is supernatural and it is found when you walk with God

Colossians 2:3 says “all the treasures of wisdom is found in Him.”  So He is our source and THE source of wisdom.  You can have an MBA or a PHD and still be D-U-M-B.  

If God is divorced from your life, then you are divorced from the all Wise God. (Romans 16:27 “the only wise God”).

Have you Ever Wondered What the Fear of the Lord actually is?

Have you ever wondered what the Fear of the Lord is?

If it’s the beginning of wisdom, like Proverbs states, then I should figure out what it means so I can be a wise man.

No better definition and explanation of the fear of the Lord have I found than what I read from Donald Grey Barnhouse’s Roman’s commentary.

Let me quote his lengthy but worthwhile explanation…..


God Himself has revealed to us that “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.” If we understand that, we are a long way on the road to truth. We must be careful to understand that when the Bible speaks of “the fear of the Lord,” it is not talking about “the fright of the Lord….” The Devil is always at war with words, and he won a victory when he transferred the meaning of fright over to our word “fear.” There are even some Christians who do not understand the difference between the fear of the Lord and the fright of the Lord.
