To me this is just an amazing vision of why it is so important to learn everything from the Lord. There is nothing we are taught that is for evil or will lead us to do something not glorifying. We are shown how to live and how to grow to be incredible people for the growth of the Kingdom. I feel leadership consist of action and not just knowing the most. Jesus went through this world and took our sin, in verse 9 it says, “He has guaranteed His covenant with them forever…” What He did can’t be changed, but we can choose not to honor what He did by living for self and not fearing what could happen when we separate from Him.
Verse 10 says, “Fear of the Lord is the foundation of true wisdom. All who obey His commandments will grow in wisdom.”
Where do we desire to get our wisdom from? It should be from God’s word, reading and praying so we can learn to be fully devoted and committed to Him. There is something to be said about being “devoted” and putting our trust in the Lord.
In Psalm chapter 112 verse 1 it says, “Praise the Lord! How joyful are those who fear the Lord and delight in obeying His commands.”
I really like that it say “delight in obeying”, because it should not be a job or work to follow Christ, it should be amazing.
In chapter 112 verse 7 it says, “They do not fear bad news; they confidently trust the Lord to care for them.”
I seek to have this wisdom where I can truly trust and live in peace with the Lord in all I do and in all that happens to me. We need to love the Lord and show Him by obeying all He has shown us with joy and delight. Amen
