Fear of the LORD is the foundation of true wisdom. All who obey His commandments will grow in wisdom. Praise Him forever! (Psalms 111:10 NLT)
Fear of the LORD does not mean to be afraid but to have love and reverence for the LORD. Wisdom is one of the attributes of God. His wisdom is seen in all of creation. When you look at how complex our bodies are and everything works together to give us sight, smell, touch, hearing, etc. you can realize that it took wisdom beyond anything that we have to create a human being, not to mention every living thing on this earth.
I think this verse goes beyond creation; it says we grow in wisdom when we submit our lives to God. The wisdom we receive is wisdom to understanding and knowing Him. As we get to know Him our love for Him grows. We see the mercy and grace that He gives us. Our hearts become overflowing with praise to Him.
If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. (James 1:5 NIV)
