Day 111 Psalm 111 Psalm 111:1 Praise ye the LORD. I will praise the LORD with my whole heart, in the assembly of the upright, and in the congregation. 2 The works of the LORD are great, sought out of all them that have pleasure therein. 3 His work is honorable and glorious: and his righteousness endures forever. 4 He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered: the LORD is gracious and full of compassion. 5 He hath given meat unto them that fear him: he will ever be mindful of his covenant. 6 He hath showed his people the power of his works, that he may give them the heritage of the heathen. 7 The works of his hands are verity and judgment; all his commandments are sure. 8 They stand fast forever and ever, and are done in truth and uprightness. 9 He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant forever: holy and reverend is his name. 10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endures forever. Praise is something that automatically comes to us when we love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength. It is with love in our hearts that we remember all he has done for us. He gives us everything we need to sustain our lives. The psalmist loved God with all that was in him. Praise came automatic to his lips. He understood the fear of God was the beginning of wisdom and keeping his commandments gave him understanding. When we have the same mind as the psalmist, we too will understand what the psalmist knew. We too will reverence God with all our being. We too will give him praise for who he is and what he has done. Let’s pray: Father, give me a mind to praise you with my whole being. Let me have your mind to understand all you have done and are doing for me. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen. Copyright © 8 July 2016 by Valerie Jean Routhieaux Image courtesy of Pixabay

I like how you explained "fear" in OT should be read as "respect". the beginning of wisdom indeed is to respect God and not think we have all the answers :D
