“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.”
After reading Proverbs 1:7 I’m left with a question for our hearts~ How would the Lord describe my relationship with him?
I believe the honest answer reveals my rate of growth in eternal knowledge and my extent of foolish living in a casual relationship with the Lord.
My desire is to continually live in reverent relationship with the Lord. One that is characterized by respectful fear that honors His position, His presence, His promises and His priorities.
Position~ Above all thing: The King of Kings
Power~ All powerful
Presence~ In heaven & In His children
Promises~ To love, to forgive, to be with, and to provide for His Children
Priorities~ His children are to love Him above all else-obey His commands- & love others as themselves
How does the Lord describe our relationship with Him………….. Committed ~ Casual ~ Consequential ?????
Committed: continual purposeful growth in relationship and eternal knowledge
Casual: occasional unintentional growth in relationship and knowledge of God
Consequential: random unsustained grow in relationship and knowledge of God
Will we be purposeful in our relationship with the Lord and grow in the knowledge and experience of His position, power, presence, promises, and priorities for us His children?
Live out your purpose child of the King of Kings!!!
Be Alert~ Stay Strong~ Pray Always
