Unless a person understands the fear of the Lord as stated in the scriptures, it is impossible for that person to live to please God and not himself or others. In Romans 8:8 is says “So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.” Also we read in Proverbs 2:5 “Then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God. What is your choice today? Who and what do you esteem above God, either willfully or ignorantly, and probably, through deception? Examine your heart and ask God to show you and choose the Fear of the Lord by Asking the Holy Spirit to help you fear God by reverencing Him, being obedient, and serving Him with all your heart.
When people go through physical, emotional, or sexual abuse they are traumatized and need healing in their spirit, soul, mind, memory and body. God said in Isaiah 43:1 “But now thus saith the Lord that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name: thou art mine.” God loves you so much and when we cast all of our cares upon Him, He said He cares for us and carries our grief and pain and lifts it off of us. We just have to give it to Him.
Joshua was getting ready to take Moses place and God said to him,”Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” And today God is saying the same thing to you. He wants you to pursue the dream He has put in your heart! When your dream looks impossible you need to trust God that He will see you through and be with you like you never thought possible.
I am strong in the Lord and the power of His might. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. I am more than a conqueror through Jesus Christ. Every curse, every negative word, every evil imagination, every evil deed done or spoken against me is destroyed and cast out now in Jesus name. I am healed and made whole in Jesus name right now. No weapon formed against me shall prosper and all those who rise against me shall fall and rise no more in Jesus name. Amen!
The Bible says that Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Heb. 13:8 Miracles happened at the Red Sea for Israel, Jesus performed miracles and went about doing good and healing all of their diseases. When we believe God for the impossible He is able because He did it before and will do it again. So lets take the limit off of God and off of ourselves and believe HIM FOR OUR MIRACLES TODAY!
Praising the Lord is a way of life when we walk in the Spirit. The carnal man complains while a Spirit filled man praises God. When we praise the Lord it breaks the chains and bondage the enemy tries to put us in. So lets ask the Holy Spirit to help us always praise the Lord at all times.
A valid test of where we are in our relationship with God involves us evaluating the way we relate to other people. This truth applies to humility as much as any other aspect of the Christian life. In Philippians 2:3 it states”Let nothing be done through strife or vain glory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than themselves.” So lets ask the Lord to help us walk humbly daily.
A prayer to help you chose the fear of the Lord for your life. Let us pray right now:
God, I want to make room in my life for the fear of the Lord. I open up my heart and life to the fear of the Lord. Teach me the fear of the Lord.
Psalm 34:11-13 Reads: “Come, you children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord. Who is the man who desires life, and loves many days, that he may see good? Keep your tongue from evil, and your lips from speaking deceit.”
