Job 28:28  And he said to the human race,
“The fear of the Lord—that is wisdom,
and to shun evil is understanding.” 

The New International Version (Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan, 2011), Jn 17:20–23.

And this is what he says to all humanity:
‘The fear of the Lord is true wisdom;
to forsake evil is real understanding.’”

(New Living Translation)

What is the “fear of the Lord”? It is loving reverence for God. It is attentive reverence to what he says. It is obedient reverence for what he asks and commands. It leads to walking in his ways (Deuteronomy 8:6). It leads to serving others by serving him (Joshua 24:14). 

The fear of the Lord is wholehearted devotion (2 Chronicles 19:9). It is separating from evil (Proverbs 3:7, 8). It is reverence greater than all our fear (Psalm 112). It is reverence reminding us of the truth that God knows all, sees all, is the judge of all, who knows all about us and loves us anyway (Matthew 10:26-31).

True wisdom is reverence for who God is. True wisdom is understanding God is God, and we are not. 

True wisdom is more than a course of study, it is a life to live (Matthew 7:21-29). The mine where wisdom is found and acquired is Jesus (1 Corinthians 1:24 and Colossians 2:3). 

This is a good day to gain and to deploy wisdom. Live reverently. Know the will and ways of Jesus. Hear what he says. Do as he instructs.

I will search reverently for wisdom by knowing and experiencing Jesus through his Word and by his leading. 

Our Father, please give me wisdom to fit me for all that lies before me today and all the days for the rest of my life. I need your clear direction. I want to hear you clearly and to obey you immediately. Amen.

Daily D – Genesis 26:26-31

Genesis 26:26-31 Meanwhile, Abimelek had come to him from Gerar, with Ahuzzath his personal adviser and Phicol the commander of his forces. 27 Isaac asked them, “Why have you come to me, since you were hostile to me and sent me away?”
28 They answered, “We saw clearly that the LORD was with you; so we said, ‘There ought to be a sworn agreement between us’—between us and you. Let us make a treaty with you 29 that you will do us no harm, just as we did not harm you but always treated you well and sent you away peacefully. And now you are blessed by the LORD.”
30 Isaac then made a feast for them, and they ate and drank. 31 Early the next morning the men swore an oath to each other. Then Isaac sent them on their way, and they went away peacefully.
