  • Oluwamayowa on Psalms 111:9
    The FEAR of the LORD is the beginning of WISDOM; a good understanding have all they that do His commandments, His praise endures forever. To fear God means to be conscious of His person, presence and love; using it as a guiding basis in our actions and inactions. To fear means to live in obedient devotion to God, and this has nothing to do with being religious, it is a lifestyle that is chosen ( Prov. 1:19).

    However, the foundation of true wisdom, lies in the fear of the Lord. When you fear Him, you would be more God-conscious than sin-conscious. Joseph asserts that shall I do this great wickedness and sin against God? That was a statement from a man who feared the Lord.

    And it does not stop there. This verse also stated that GOOD UNDERSTANDING HAVE ALL THEY THAT DO HIS COMMANDS. What a deep phrase! There's good understanding and there is bad understanding. One brings favor, while the other leads to hardship.

    May God help us live in the reality and consciousness of this truth in the name of Jesus.
