ACCESSING THE WISDOM OF GOD BY THE FEAR OF THE LORD
By DIGC 12 October 2021
To be a Kingdom star, wisdom is a non-negotiable requirement.
SCRIPTURE: The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding. Proverbs 9:10.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: To be a Kingdom star, wisdom is a non-negotiable requirement.
Wisdom has been confirmed to be the secret of stardom in the Kingdom. To be a Kingdom star, wisdom is a non-negotiable requirement.
The Scripture makes it clear that the key to accessing wisdom from God is the fear of God (Proverbs 9:10).
You know, before you go into mining, you need a mining license. Similarly, to mine from the field of Divine Wisdom, you need a licence. The license you need to mine from the minefield of Divine Wisdom is called the fear of the Lord.
An educated man without the fear of the Lord is an educated fool. An intelligent man without the fear of the Lord is an intelligent fool. A rich man without the fear of the Lord is a rich fool. A beautiful girl without the fear of the Lord is a beautiful fool. A powerful man without the fear of the Lord is a powerful fool. A president without the fear of the Lord is a presidential fool. This is because the fear of the Lord is the guarantee of wisdom.
So, there are many foolish people moving up and down in our world today. Some people are fools even though they claim to have some money. Others are fools even though they have certificates that certified them as intelligent.
The good news is, you can have both education and the fear of the Lord. You can have both money and the fear of the Lord. You can have power and the fear of the Lord. You can have influence and the fear of the Lord.
The question is, are you wise or foolish? The fear of the Lord in you or otherwise will determine whether you are wise or foolish.
Remember this: To be a Kingdom star, wisdom is a non-negotiable requirement.
- Make up your mind to maintain the fear of God.
- The fear of the Lord is to depart from evil. Run away from every appearance of evil.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive the grace to fear You. Help me to eschew evil, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: Wisdom is the key to ruling on earth and foolishness is the mystery behind hardship on earth. To be wise is to rise and to be a fool is to fail. Culled from “21 FOOLISH THINGS PEOPLE DO” by Dr Paul Enenche.
DAILY READING: Matthew 18-20
REFLECTION: Independence from God is key to disaster in life. It is like an aircraft that is independent of the control tower. Every progress away from God is progress in the direction of disaster.
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: May the fear of the Lord cause such flow of wisdom that will cause your world to need you in Jesus’ Name.
