The Bible says that the fear of the Lord is the "beginning of wisdom" (Psalm 111:10) and the "beginning of knowledge" (Proverbs 1:7). Proverbs 14:27 even calls it a "fountain of life"! But do people really understand what is meant by "the fear of the Lord"? Drastically different from the frightful trembling we feel in response to a threatening person or dangerous situation, the "fear of the Lord" is a deep sense of reverence and awe of the One who created us, loves us, and saved us. With comforting words of instruction, renowned Bible scholar Derek Prince explains...How the fear of the Lord differs from other types of fear. How to gain wisdom and understanding, which are rooted in the fear of the Lord. How to overcome pride in order to submit to Christ and to others. How to stand in awe of God's holiness. Experience peace and confidence by cultivating the fear of the Lord, the place where wisdom begins!
