Love you all, praying for you,
I just love God's Word. It teaches you the Fear of the LORD. What If You Learned The Fear Of The LORD? How your life would change completely! Praying that you will review again the Daily Huddle – The Best Investment… and the PRISM Topic - You Are Not Fearing God For Nothing. Why learn the fear the LORD? #1 It’s a requirement. Deuteronomy 10:12 – And now, O Israel, (He’s talking to the people – “Where He Rules As God”) what does the LORD your God ask of you? but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, to love him, to serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul, and to observe the LORD’s commands and decrees that I am giving you today for your own good! Why learn the fear of the LORD? #2 It’s the beginning of wisdom. Psalms 111:10 – The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding. To him belongs eternal praise. Proverbs 15:33 – The fear of the LORD is instruction in wisdom, and humility comes before honor. Why learn the fear of the LORD? #3 God will bless you. You are not fearing God for nothing… Psalms 115:13 – He will bless those who fear the LORD, the small together with the great. What is the Fear of the LORD? To love God more than sin. Choosing God over sin. The next time you have an opportunity, choosing God over sin. The Fear of the LORD - Loving God so much that you would never do anything to displease or disappoint Him. What does God say about the fear of the LORD? See The Fear Of The LORD Packet, and the Fear God Summary. What is the Fear of the LORD? #1 To hate evil (to turn from it immediately like a putrid smell) Proverbs 8:13 - The fear of the LORD is to hate evil; pride and arrogance, evil behavior and perverse speech, I despise. What is perverse? A reluctance to obey (a slow obeyer). Turning it over in your mind until you go back to the contrary - Perverse. Being a hearer, but not a doer of the Word. Not quick to obey, the first time, completely with a happy heart… thinking about it first… Perverse. What is the Fear of the LORD? #2 – To Tremble in His presence. Jeremiah 5:22 – “Should you not fear me?” declares the LORD, “Should you not tremble in my presence?” I made the sand a boundary for the sea, an everlasting barrier it cannot cross. The waves may roll, but they cannot prevail; they may roar, but they cannot cross it. But these people have stubborn hearts; they have turned aside and gone away. They do not say to themselves, ‘Let us fear the LORD our God who gives autumn and spring rains in season, who assures us of the regular weeks of harvest.” Your wrongdoings have kept these away; your sins have deprived you of good.” What is the fear of the LORD? #3 – To Fully Obey what He tells you. (It’s why PiVAT before dinner is so important – it's Fear of the LORD practice…) 2 Chronicles 19:9 – “Thus you shall do in the fear of the LORD, in faithfulness, with your whole heart.” What has God told you to do? Do it. This is the fear of the LORD. Whatever God tells you, ask Him and do it fully, with all your heart. Not just loving, not just hearing, doing what He tells you. PiVAT before dinner is a perfect place to start. You’ll find out what He wants you to do – to Fear Him… And PRISM – His Word – that tells you how you should do it… What is the Fear of the LORD? #4 Speak the Truth, #5 Say Nothing Harmful to others, #6 Do Good, #7 Seek Peace. Psalm 34:11 – “Come my children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the LORD. Whoever of you loves life and desires to see many days, keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking lies. Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it. This is the fear of the LORD.” So how do you get the fear of the LORD? #1 Ask for it. Psalms 86:11 – Teach me your way O LORD that I may walk in your truth, give me an undivided heart to fear Your Name. #2 Devote Yourself To It. Psalm 119:38 – Establish your Word to your servant who is devoted to your fear… #3 Read His Word every day – Deuteronomy 17:19 – It is to be with him, and he is to read it all the days of his life… #4 Obey what He tells you. Deuteronomy 17:19 - … that he may learn to fear the LORD his God and follow carefully all the words of his law and these decrees. How to understand the fear of the LORD – Proverbs 2:1 – My son, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you, turning your ear to wisdom, and applying your heart to understanding, and if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding, and if you look for it as for silver, and search for it as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge of God. For the LORD gives wisdom and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.” To learn the Fear of the LORD – you have to pursue it. It doesn’t fall off the tree and hit you on the head. You have to climb for it, and dig for it. You have to pursue it like it’s worth the lottery. It’s worth way more than that. Praying that you will learn the fear of the LORD, so you will walk in the wisdom and favor of the Eternal, The One True Living God who loves you and has unsearchable blessing for those who fear Him. Praying that you’ll start your search with The Fear Of The LORD Packet. His Word that will change your life, and your eternity.
