Dunamis’ Seeds Of Destiny 11 May 2021 Devotional By Pastor Paul Enenche – Understanding The Fear Of God
TOPIC: Understanding The Fear Of God (Seeds Of Destiny 11 May 2021)
A person who fears God reveres Him.
SCRIPTURE: The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and the knowledge of the Holy is understanding. Proverbs 9:10
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: A person who fears God reveres Him.
Previously, we saw that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom
Today, we shall be looking at what the fear of the Lord implies. That is, what it means to fear God.
Now, what is the fear of the Lord?
i. The fear of the Lord implies reverence for God (Proverbs 8:13).
A person who fears God reveres Him.
ii. It implies deference to God, that is, to defer to God.
This is to consult God as the final authority over your life in whatever you want to do. God has the final say in your life. (Proverbs 3:5-6). For a man or woman who fears God, God is first, God is last, and God is everything in between.
iii. The fear of the Lord implies reference to God on all issues (Proverbs 3:5-6).
When a person fears God, he or she will refer to God on all issues. The person who fears God asks Him questions like: “Lord, who should I marry? Where should I work? What do you want me to do with my life God?”
Where you see people who don’t fear God, what they do with their lives is practically their own decision. God is never in the picture of their lives. They don’t consult God for any reason. Whether the business is good, bad or ugly, they must do it. Whether the man is an occult man, as far as he has money, she will marry him. Whether the girl fears God or not, as far as she looks beautiful, he will marry her.
Beloved, do not live your life this way. Make up your mind to make God the first, the last and final consideration of your life.
Remember this: A person who fears God reveres Him.
- Go through today’s message again to understand what it means to fear God.
- Endeavour to put every point outlined above into practice.
