Proverbs 9 4-9-19

God has a plan. He has always had a plan. Do you believe you are part of His plan?

10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.

In the Old Covenant, God revealed His awesomeness and His glory through acts of judgement. In the New Covenant, He reveals His love and grace through His Son, Jesus Christ. We fear Him, but not in the same way. We revere Him now and revel in our inclusion in His wonderful plan, the Gospel!

In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, 2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe. Hebrews 1:1-2

God revealed Himself and part of His plan to one man, Abraham. Then, He revealed Himself and some more of His plan to a nation, Israel. Then, He revealed Himself to the world and the mystery of the Gospel through Jesus. One day, He will reveal the REST of His plan when Christ returns. Who knows what He has planned for us in Glory!

However, as it is written:
“No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him”—1 Corinthians 2:9
Let’s take courage from these verses and remember that we are loved by God, and the more we know and experience His love, the less we fear Him and the more we revere Him.
