Isaiah 33:6 KJV
“And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the fear of the Lord is his treasure.”
Reflections - There are four things that must be present in our lives if we hope to scale hurdles and find fulfillment. The first is wisdom which the scripture labels as the “principal thing“. Wisdom is elevated above knowledge because it involves taking the appropriate action over the facts that we have. This is the realm of insight and discernment given only by God.
The second thing is knowledge. Knowledge deals with crucial facts of existence. The Bible is a gold mine of knowledge. Your destiny is located somewhere between Genesis and Revelation, discover it! The third thing is salvation. Your soul is your greatest asset, if it is lost then profiting is lost for eternity. The last one is the fear of the Lord. The fear of the Lord is holy reverence which prompts submission and total obedience. God reveals Himself to those who fear Him. When you have these four things you will have stability, strength and great treasures beyond descriptions.
1. Lord, load me with divine wisdom and the grace to discern the right actions in season.
2. Lord, reveal my destiny to me in the light of the scriptures and your eternal counsel.
3. Lord, stabilize me, strengthen me and give me treasures beyond descriptions.
