Connection between Fear of God & Wisdom

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of Knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction ( Prov 1:7 ).

Fear of God is the starting point of receiving Godly spiritual wisdom. It’s a bridge which connects us to heavenly thinking. Which also means that we need to stop fearing people, we are in constant fear that people will not approve us, we are not pleasing people enough, they may reject us. Once we take a stand for the Lord as Jesus did, he was constantly pleasing his heavenly Father and in return he was assured by our heavenly Father answering him Mathew 3:17 And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased. Our Lord delights in us when we fear him and when we wait for his approval and not of any human being. I wasted my life living in fear of men and I experienced emptiness a feeling of being hollowed, the day I shifted my heart and my mind to pleasing God I was at peace with God and men. Now it means to me that his approval is the only one that finally matters and I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me – Phil 4:13.
