FAITH CAPSULE: Give your heart to fear God.
The word of God is to enter, to occupy the heart of all, for all to live life for God.
The heart that it enters will fear God.
God treasures those who fear Him.
To fear God is with ones that have wisdom and knowledge, the source of stability, the strength of salvation. Isaiah 33:6 testifies, “Wisdom and knowledge will be the stability of your times and the strength of salvation; The fear of the Lord is His treasure.” God treasures it when one fears Him.
Fear God by your way of living life.
Living life by the fear of God is taking a position not to be a victim of a wicked world.
Ecclesiastes 12:13 points out the need for all to be living life by the fear God, “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is man’s all.”
Are you one that keeps the word of God in the head with no space for the word of God in the heart?
In life, let the fear of God become your identity before God.
The fear of God is the identity of Job before God as God testifies, “there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, one who fears God and shuns evil? And still, he holds fast to his integrity, although you incited Me against him, to destroy him without cause.” (Job 2:3)
To fear God in the heart will have a pleasing life before God.
Have a heart of fear for God to shun the evil not to have a place in you.
One that does not fear God will not abide in His command, to dwell in the presence of God.
Through the pages of the Bible, word records what will become of those who fear God:
“Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him, On those who hope in His mercy.” (Psalm 33:18)
“The angel of the LORD encamps all around those who fear Him and delivers them. Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who trusts in Him! Oh, fear the LORD, you His saints! There is no want to those who fear Him.” (Psalm 34:7-9)
“And His mercy is on those who fear Him From generation to generation.” (Luke 1:50)
Let the fear of God keep you under the eyes of God.
With the desire and determination to fear God without prayer will not work.
Today, get to understand and know in the promise of God that when you fear God, you will fear none before God to claim the promises of God.
The book of Isiah 41:10 speaks it to all, “Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.”
Fear God is the will of God for all.
Prayer for today: Ask from God that you want to live life in His fear.
