THE FEAR OF THE LORD
The fear of the Lord is to hate evil:pride,and arrogance and the evil way and the froward mouth,do I hate . Proverbs 8:13.
The quality of your work with God affects the buoyancy productivity and longevity of your life. One major tool used in measuring the quality of tour spiritual life is the fear of God. All the men and women that made maximum impact in the Bible are those who possessed the spiritual virtue .
Joseph was a teenager when hr steeped into Egypt. He served and was served until he passed on at the age of 110 years. 80 years of relevance and he had this testimony that he feared God. Daniel was a man with an impeccable character and integrity. He reigned from king Nebuchadnezzar’s government to the time of king Cyrus. Daniel’s relevance spanned across successive regime because he operated at a high level of the fear of the Lord.(Daniel1:8)
Nothing secures the destiny of a man like the fear of God and nothing aborts a man’s future more than the lack of it. Samson ,through full of strength ,died among his enemies simply because he didn’t have enough of this virtue. Judas Iscariot was supposed to be a first class messenger just like peter,yet he committed suicide simply because he lacked the fear of God. The fear of God is to hate evil. It means having a strong and unmatched reverence for God . it is obeying God without the permission or approval of any man . it is upholding God’s laws and words above all else; pitting Him first in everything.
Whatever is sharing God’s space in your life is destroyed as I hear your loudest amen noe. You are empowered with the fear of the Lord.
1. O Lord,let your fear consume me.
2. Whatever God hates will not find expression in me Jesus Name( pro 8:13)
I have an excellent spirit because Christ is my wisdom.therefore I will not struggle to keep God’s commandments. Amen
