“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.”~Proverbs 1:7
There it is plain and simple. Not reverencing God is pure foolishness. Every time we try and do it our way. All those times we tried to tell the Lord how to do it better. Every instance where we knew what the Father said, but still went (your name here)’s way instead. God is the Creator and Master of everything. He knows everything. There is no better source for instruction regarding any matter we face. Turning to anything else first is stupidity.
What are you doing to gain more of His divine instruction? It doesn’t start with trying to take care of yourself. It starts with recognizing God and putting Him in the proper place in your life. After that He will instruct you further. Whatever you need to do and however you need to do it. God has the ultimate plans. Knowledge begins with Him.
