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: To exist in the fear of the Lord is to govern your life by the rules of God.

Our anchor Scripture makes it clear that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. To operate or manifest the Wisdom of God, the fear of the Lord is a capital requirement. Therefore, it is very important to know what the fear of the Lord is so we can be wise in life.

What then is the fear of the Lord?

The fear of God is existing by Godly principles.

To exist in the fear of the Lord is to govern your life by the principles of God as found in His Word. To govern your life by the Word of God is to fear God. The fear of God is the refusal to take God for granted; it is the refusal to take His Word for granted.

Deuteronomy 6:24 says,

And the Lord commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear the Lord our God, for our good always, that he might preserve us alive, as it is at this day.

Obeying the statues or commandments of the Lord equals fearing the Lord.

This means, when you obey or do His Word, you acquire and manifest His fear. When you connect His Word, you acquire His fear. And when you acquire His fear, you step into good. You know, His goodness is the reason for your preservation.

Take note of this: If you don’t do His Word, you can’t fear Him. And if you don’t fear Him, it is not for your good. When you don’t fear God, good is absent from your life, and your preservation is not guaranteed.

Remember this: To exist in the fear of the Lord is to govern your life by the rules of God.

ASSIGNMENTS:

1. Make the fear of God your priority in life.

2. Make up your mind to govern your life by the Word of the Lord.

PRAYER: Thank You Lord for Your Word to me today. I receive Your Help to govern my life by the dictates of Your Word, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: When a person’s name is neat, his character is neat and his integrity is neat.

Culled from “21 FOOLISH THINGS PEOPLE DO” by Dr Paul Enenche.

DAILY READING: Acts 28-Romans 2.

REFLECTION: The Fear of God is connected to the flow of God and the fleeing of evil. God cannot be present if His fear is absent.

PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: Receive the grace to do His Word and a new baptism of the fear of the LORD in Jesus’ Name.
