What does it mean to Fear the Lord? How can you have a Loving and Gracious Father that you must fear at the same time? This is a concept that I still long to grasp.
My son, vif you receive my words
and treasure up my commandments with you,
2 making your ear attentive to wisdom
and inclining your heart to understanding;
3 yes, if you call out for insight
and raise your voice wfor understanding,
4 if you seek it like xsilver
and search for it as for yhidden treasures,
then zyou will understand the fear of the Lord
and find the knowledge of God.
Why didn’t I think of asking God the questions that I’ve always had? How foolish am I trying to grasp this idea that only He can reveal to me? This passage made me realize that throughout my christian life I was the only one to communicate to God without listening to what He has to say. So here I am. God I’m ready. Let me seek you for YOU and not for my selfish gains. As hard as it will be let me stop being so selfish, listen, and be still in Your presence so that I may fall in love with You.
