Devotion's by Deborah

Devotion 4-4-24, Psalm 111:10- "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; A good understanding have all those who do His commandments; His praise endures forever." In our modern English, we lose the original intent of many words. "Fear of the Lord" does not mean a nail-biting quaking and shaking, but rather a supreme reverence that will not allow blasphemy of God's name either by word or action. This reverential regard for God, as Author, Creator, Redeemer, and Lover of our souls, leads to wisdom. Wisdom often means a well used skill; but here it means the willingness and ability to be reprimanded, corrected. We see that only those holding God in highest regard will be those whose hearts will begin to be corrected by God. All of our thinking and doing must come under God's gaze for correction and reproof in godliness.(2 Timothy 3:16.) When we act on God's corrections, we "do his commandments." We will never do what God wants us to do without a pliable heart that, not only is willing, but strongly desires, God's correction. Only as we seek God with all our heart, loving him with all our heart, soul, and mind.(Matthew 22:37), will we even begin to really understand God at all. As sinners, we lack all understanding and wisdom. We are unable to comprehend. Only as we repent, pray, seek after, and pursue God, will we do His commandments, obeying His Word. Only then will we desire His ways. Only then will we praise Him with praise that endures forever! What is the will of the Lord? Proverbs 3:5-6- "Trust in the Lord with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight."
