Memory Verse

“And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him: for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from me” ( Genesis 22:12)

Dearly Beloved

In quite a few places in the bible, the word of God says : the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom , as in: “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding” ( Proverbs 9:10).

Abraham, our father waited for so long to have Isaac, yet he was very willing to sacrifice Isaac to God. Abraham had every reason to have argued with God. Isaac, himself shocked me to my bone, he never resisted when he was bound (Genesis 22: 9-10)! Unbelievable! Note that God did not respond by saying: now I know that you love God or now I know that you obey God, which seem appropriate, but God said as per our memory verse, now I know that you fear God.

How much do you fear this God in Christ Jesus? Do you know that God is a consuming FIRE?-Hebrews 12:29. If you sufficiently fear God, there are many things you will never want to do or fail to do . Being sufficiently God fearing should lead you to total obedience, submissiveness and love. No wonder, the word of God says the fear of God is the very beginning of wisdom. Do you want to be wise? Then begin to fear God by obeying HIM completely.

Yes,

“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever” (Psalm 111:10).

“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction” ( Proverbs 1:7).

JESUS is the best example of one person who was totally God fearing while on earth .

Stay connected with Jesus Christ, the Word. Be God fearing. It’s well with you in Jesus name. Amen

Prayer

Father, please give us the grace to be sufficiently God fearing in Jesus mighty name. Amen

Blood of Jesus!
