Where Wisdom Begins
Understanding the Fear of the Lord
The Bible says that the fear of the Lord is the "beginning of wisdom" (Psalm 111:10) and the "beginning of knowledge" (Proverbs 1:7). Proverbs 14:27 even calls it a "fountain of life"! But do people really understand what is meant by "the fear of the Lord"?
Drastically different from the frightful trembling we feel in response to a threatening person or dangerous situation, the "fear of the Lord" is a deep sense of reverence and awe of the One who created us, loves us, and saved us.
With comforting words of instruction, renowned Bible scholar Derek Prince explains...
• How the fear of the Lord differs from other types of fear
• How to gain wisdom and understanding, which are rooted in the fear of the Lord
• How to overcome pride in order to submit to Christ and to others
• How to stand in awe of God's holiness
Experience peace and confidence by cultivating the fear of the Lord, the place where wisdom begins!
