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.”
The Bible says that the fear of man brings a snare to our soul, but whoever trusts in the Lord shall be safe. Proverbs 29:25 The fear of man is being afraid of what people will think or say and it is the opposite of trust in the Lord. So get rid of fear and trust in the Lord!
It is written that wisdom is the principle thing therefore get wisdom and Godly understanding that will cause you to know God intimately and pursue Him intimately in the way of the Holy Spirit. Walk in the way of the Holy Spirit and your steps will not slide back. Godly Wisdom is key to having in these last days to navigate in the world we now live in.
The blessing of the Lord it maketh rich and he addeth no sorrow with it. Proverbs 10:22 When people experience sorrow it is because they refuse to continue in willing obedience to the Holy Spirit. This results in forfeiting the blessing for their lives. So lets walk humbly and be obedient and receive the blessings God has for us.
What is the source of our lives? With the fear of the Lord, our roots go down to the source of life: God himself. A fruited tree is a symbolic picture of one who walks and lives in the fear of the Lord – one whose heart is perfect toward God, who is fully committed to God. Our roots go deeper and deeper as we become more intimate with God.
God’s mercy is incredible! He loves us so much that he forgives us when we don’t even deserve it. He continues to love us and draw us to himself. In Psalm 136 we read about all the ways that God’s mercy endures forever. He even redeems us from our enemies, so lets give thanks to Him for His mercy endures forever!
