The beginning of wisdom is the Fear of the Lord, to fear the Lord is to desire and walk by the Holy Spirit pleasing God even against the very desires of our flesh, mind and soul. God gave us free will but also He gave us to know and to choose between good and evil, if we fear the Lord we have wisdom and that wisdom will deliver us from evil by having us make the righteous decision that will be pleasing unto the Lord every step of the way, and at the same time bringing us near to His Holy Presences.
To walk in the fear of the Lord is to walk with the conviction and the understanding that it is no longer I, but Christ that lives in me. Once we know that it is divine order that is established in us, giving God the first place in our lives. And, not only that God becomes our first priority but also it blesses us not to be our own stumbling rock. Because when we seek our own desires, it might result in destruction if it is not pleasing to God first. The bible says “there is a way that seems right but at the end leads to death” Proverbs 14:12. Make our Lord Jesus first in your life and he shall direct your path, don’t be your own god or savior it will never work for you.
