Prov. 2:4-5 “If you seek skillful and godly wisdom as you would silver And search for her as you would hidden treasures; Then you will understand the [reverent] fear of the Lord [that is, worshiping Him and regarding Him as truly awesome] And discover the knowledge of God.
To me, this seems to be a forgotten proverb today.
I see many churches on TV where there seems to be little or no reverence with loud bands and constant rejoicing.
Where are people going to hear God’s “still small voice?”
Modern worship seems to consist of rejoicing with no searching for godly wisdom.
Spiritual Exercise consists of Prayer, Bible study and meditation upon God’s Word. This is where reverence is born.
Think about it.
Please add your comments to this thought at the bottom of this post so others can be blessed through your words also.
You and I can benefit much from studying the life of Jesus. It will give us the same power from the Father that He received. Power that will slowly change our desires to be more pure. Power that will slowly help us to dislike sinful things. When our desires and “likes” change we can be used by God as a sweet aroma to help others.
Salvation is a one-to-one affair. Family or church worship isn’t enough to form and grow a relationship with God.
So, join me and spend time with God. Spiritual Exercises are fun, You’ll love it!

If Jesus spent all night in prayer then why do we think we need so little?
Jesus would arise early in the morning and go outside and find a place of seclusion to pray. He spent time with the Father and received strength. It allowed Him to resist temptation. It allowed Him to succeed in His mission.
