Do you have light?

When we are surrounded by darkness, the greatest need of that moment is light.
Without light, we would be fearful, uncertain about our next step, our well being etc.

God's word tells us that the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom.
We are encouraged to acquire wisdom.Proverbs 3: 13
Reverence for God is the beginning of wisdom. Job 28: 18 When we respect God, we will do what he says.Psalm 111:10

Jesus said "A wise man is one who would listen to his word and act upon his words" Matthew 7:24
There are many people nowadays who will listen but will not do what God would say to them.
The bible calls them foolish because they are building their lives on sand and when the storms and flood come, the house built on sand will not stand.

You can study the Bible as much as you like, but without the revelation from the spirit of God, your study is in vain. 1 Corinthians 2: 10 God has to reveal his truths to us, and he will reveal those truths to us, if we are faithful with the truths that he has already given to us.
It's like this, unless one passes the first grade, they cannot go to the second grade. Matthew 25: 23

May God help us to be faithful with the truths and talents that he has given to us.
