Beloved, the fear of the Lord is the beginning of all wisdom, knowledge and understanding. When you fear Me knowledge fills your house. Many perish because they lack revelation, knowledge or vision (Proverbs 29:18) â€śKnowledge of whatâ€ť, you might askâ€¦knowledge of the Holy Oneâ€¦knowledge, understanding and revelation of the Word and so much more. If you do not have knowledge or revelation you cast off all restraint or self-control which is to become self-indulgent or mindful of only your needs.
On a side noteâ€¦when you converse with others do you use the â€śIâ€ť word or say â€śYou did or you saidâ€ť a lot? This can be a gauge to measure your heart byâ€¦a thermometer of the Spirit so to speak.
Redemptive revelatory knowledge always starts in your heart first to reveal and redeem then it moves outward. All must be vertical before it goes horizontal. If not soâ€¦the wrong kind of fear can be introduced to another heart. Selah (meditate, reflect)
Have you ever wished you knew then what you know now? Most have. This longingâ€¦this wish of many speaks to the value of knowledge and its ability to keep one from perishing. Never fear My revelation for when I reveal a thing it is always redemptive in every way. I never point anything out in order to make you fear.
Open yourself fully to the spirit of wisdom and understanding today. Count on things being different. Old ways of thinking and believing will not work in this day and hour. You must be one stretched out beyond what you think you can do and be. What I am doing in you today will cause you to stop looking backwards at the past and enable you to embrace a new wine not even yet released. There is always new wine just like there was new manna. Drink up and be refreshed….Read Complete Love Letter
The Spirit of the LORD will rest on himâ€” the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of power, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD (Isaiah 11:2 Amplified)
Where there is no vision [no redemptive revelation of God], the people perish; but he who keeps the law [of God, which includes that of man]–blessed (happy, fortunate, and enviable) is he. (Proverbs 29:18 Amplified)
Lord, teach me to walk in wisdom, knowledge and understanding till all knowledge fills my houseâ€¦my heart. May Your wisdom and revelation keep me from perishing in any way. Truly people perish for lack of knowledge. Many times in my life, as I look back, I realized the mistakes I made were due to ignorance of Your Wordâ€¦ignorance about You.
I have made decisions which have affected me to this day, but you are the Lord who restores the years the locust have eaten. Many times I have judged others without having true revelation and change in my own heart. I ask You to forgive me and cleanse me of all unrighteousness and severe the power of all judgments I have made as I confess and repent. I release _______________ from all judgments and words I have spoken.
I declare the redemptive knowledge and fear of the Lord fill my life and heart. I will not give way to measuring anotherâ€™s heart and forget to examine mine. May all I ever do in relation to others be done in truth and love for I must reap what I sew. It is love I wish to reap. Lord help me to be humble of heart and forsake the past. I press on to my high calling in You. Amen
