The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding. To him belongs eternal praise. Psalm 111:10 NIV
I am the alpha and omega. I was before the beginning of time as you know it and I will be after time is no more. I have placed eternity in the hearts of men too long to be with Me forever.
The awe and wonder you feel as you stand on the edge of the Grand Canyon is similar to the respectful fear you experience in My presence. The sheer size and beauty is enormous. I am much, much more than the beauty of that natural wonder I created. Though I hold the universe, I am comfortable being with you.
You need wisdom, you say. Your understanding is limited to today. At best you can only hope and plan for tomorrow, for I, alone, know what will take place in your life in the future. You need not fear what may come your way, for I will be with you.
My word is a lamp for your feet. I lay a solid foundation for each step you will take. The firmness is directly related to following the Spirit in obedience. To follow in His steps is to lead to light and life of understanding.
When you are struggling with the decisions of “what should you do?”, receive the peace which comes with My abiding presence. The way forward will be a combination of alignment with My character and the joy of your heart’s desire. The purchase of things only has a temporary pleasure, but maintaining right relationships through forgiveness yields a peaceful everlasting joy.
With wisdom get understanding. Both come from a relationship with Me. I offer them freely to those who seek Me, for you will find Me. My heart is open toward you. Forgiveness has already been established for your good. Come unto Me when you are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. I love you.
Whispers from Your Father, God
