As established in issue 1 of the journey of the book of Proverbs for the month of October, the fear(reverence) of the lord we know is the beginning of knowledge. And we saw that we can get knowledge of the LORD through his word and this we must always do and not let the word depart from us.
How are we to get into the knowledge and wisdom of God and hence the fear of HIM? Proverbs 2:4-5 says “If you seek her as silver, And search for her as for hidden treasures; Then you will understand the fear of the LORD, And find the knowledge of God.(NKJV)
To come into the fear of the LORD demands consistency. We need to continually search the scriptures in order to find the hidden treasures the LORD has for us. Our daily activities like schooling and working seem to take us away from the word of God.
To fear the lord is to give HIM the first place in whatever that concerns your live. Give the word the first place in your heart and wisdom shall not depart from you because “For the LORD gives wisdom and from His mouth come knowledge and understanding ” Proverbs 2:6 (RSV).
