THE FEAR OF THE LORD
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; a good understanding have all those who do His commandments, His praise endures forever. Psalm 111:10
We as the body of Christ have drifted away from fearing God in this liberal age, forgetting we serve a great and awesome God who created the universe! As the scripture states, fearing God is the beginning of wisdom, but because of our lack of reverence we have become ignorant!
Most of New Testament Christianity thinks that because Jesus died to satisfy the wrath of God that He also somehow changed God's image, becoming more of a Santa Claus type character who doles out blessings to everyone, while not noticing their behavior. Don't be fooled by the notion that God has changed, He is the same God who hates sin and created Hell for the devil and his angels and anyone who has rejected His Son Jesus!
God is an awesome God who reigns supreme over the entire universe and He should receive glory and honor as our Supreme authority, Father and Lord who created us in His image! I pray as you read these devotionals that your fear and reverence for Him will increase and that you will restore that which you have drifted away from.
Jesus said, "In this manner, therefore pray: Our Father in Heaven, hallowed be Your name." Matthew 6:9
