Proverbs 9:10 NKJV
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,
And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
The scripture tells us that understanding comes with knowledge of God. If we sincerely want an increase in understanding we must pursue knowing God. Knowledge of God comes through His Word and fellowship with Him. We fellowship with Him through prayer and meditation, by involving ourselves in His work on earth as submitted servants, and by living our lives in accordance with the Book He supplied as our guide.
