Fear Of The Lord, Understanding And Wisdom

Word of the Day

Follow My instructions (My Word) and understanding will come. It has come in the past and will come in the future. Lay the groundwork for your tomorrows by walking in reverence and awe today. The door you exit any given day, time or situation is the door you enter into another day, time or situation. Remember, the door you exit is the door you enter. Cultivate and receive Me as the Lord who was, is and is to come.

Receive Me as the ever approaching One who draws near…who stretches out My neck…My heart to you right now. I am coming and will always be coming to you. It is who I am. It is what I do. Beloved, I am always on the move in your direction.

The question is never whether I am coming, for I always am. However, the question is, “Who is receptive…who is receiving…who is believing…who is waiting…who is trusting…regardless of situation or circumstance. Who fears with awe of heart?” Let it be you.

Yes, I am the Beginning. I am the End and the All In Between. I am the Was, the Is and the Is To Come (Revelation 1:8). I am all of this just for you. Therefore, let nothing hinder or stand in the way. I am nigh unto your heart. I dwell in you and you contain the thoughts and intents of My heart. Yes, I have already come. Be a trusting receptacle…have a believing heart…I do…

The reverent fear and worship of the Lord is the beginning of Wisdom and skill [the preceding and the first essential, the prerequisite and the alphabet]; a good understanding, wisdom, and meaning have all those who do [the will of the Lord]. Their praise of Him endures forever. (Psalms 111:10 Amplified)


Lord, forgive me for getting ahead of You or for listening to the advice of men in lieu of Your Word. Help me to understand how important the ground of my life today and how I nurture it will determine much of my tomorrows. Give me an eternal perspective as I learn to see the bigger picture around me. I do not want to be self-focused or self-absorbed. May my heart be cultivated in richness, grace, mercy and truth to the point no lie will have the power to influence me or draw me away from Your presence.

I proclaim I am one who is receptive, receiving, believing…one who is trusting even as the Lord is. My heart bows in awe and respect for the Lord. I am not moved regardless of situation or circumstance for the Lord is with Me. I stretch myself out to the Lord and He meets me. I am changed. Amen

Reflect and Journal

1. The Israelites forgot from moment to moment all the things I Am did for them. Seems this is human nature but we have been given His nature for He lives in us. Therefore, how you respond to all He has done today will influence your tomorrows. Bad decisions today affect tomorrow. Reflect on the door you exit being the door you enter into your next situation or circumstance. Where are your walking today?

2. The Great I Am “is”. Ponder the word “is” and relate said word to the Lord and your very present circumstances. How does or should this change your perspective of what you are going through or experiencing emotionally?

  1. I am thankful for the circumstances that I know where the Spirit makes it’s presence known. Some situations I’ve encountered, were orchestra-ed by the Spirit, or just to let me know there is more to a situation than what the eye sees. But I am going through another experience at church, that I can’t fully understand. Jesus is in the center of my being and in the situation. In time, I feel it will manifest, so I can better solve the understanding of what this particular situation is for…Jesus will show me in time.
    My walk is with Jesus, He is my All and I will not be distracted by any situation, circumstance or false comments scattered around.I know I must be more careful in what I say, sometimes I think people do not understand, Jesus does. My walk may take me further than what others are experiencing, but Jesus knows what I am capable of. He knows I can handle what is “thrown” my way. He is there helping me.
    Does this make sense?

  2. It is so good to see you be able to comment and I love your insight…and yest it makes sense…Jesus always knows….He is our ever-present help in time of trouble and every other time…many blessings and Happy Thanksgiving to you….luv Brenda
