The Reverence

"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom & instruction." PR. 1:7

The mission statement of an independent fool is, "I did it my way." The Wise are not self-righteous "know it alls." They simply never get over their daily dependence upon God for His direction, protection and correction. They approach Him with wonder-filled, bold, humility relying on His Word, not their prejudices, and preferences to guide them. Prayer is the posture of a humble heart. Prayerless people are prideful fools. Despising wisdom and instruction begins by refusing to bend weak knees before Almighty God. It leads to ignoring His Word. The power of prayer is not found in your eloquence, but in your reverence for His Presence.
