TODAY'S DEVOTION:    July 06, 2020




The phrase “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge”

(Prov. 1:7) is the cornerstone of Proverbs.

Fear is actually another word for reverence or worship, suggesting that wisdom begins when we properly acknowledge who God is and offer Him the worship He deserves.

It reminds us that life’s true significance is discovered when we approach God with an attitude of humility and awe, not dread and fright.

The remainder of Proverbs explains how we can fear God in our daily lives. Whether the topic is wealth, work or marriage, we are called to give God the honor due Him by obeying His will in each of these areas.

A wise person will humbly seek God’s perspective on a matter before acting, but the fool will throw caution to the wind and act on his or her own impulses.

What’s the result of ignoring God and doing it our way?


“There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”

(Proverbs 14:12).


But the person who fears God, who daily worships and honors Him, has nothing to fear in either life or death. So choose life, choose God through our Lord Jesus.


Lord, thank You that You are a loving and merciful God. I want to give You honor to everything l do, but forgive me because most of the time l missed it especially in times of abundance and comfort. Direct me to You when l need counsel, and remind me when l begin to forget You. I humbly pray to You, in Jesus Name, Amen.
