Fear The Lord Your God
Here is your Daily Devotional Prayer for October 22, 2016 brought to you by The Plough
“And now, Israel, what does the Lord your God ask of you but to fear the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him, to love him, to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul?”
Lord our God, our Father in heaven, be with us as we are gathered here. Through your Spirit let our hearts grow in understanding of how we can serve you rightly and live as you want us to live. Help us hold fast to all that is good. Free us more and more from everything that hinders us, from all that is evil. Show your loving-kindness to us and to our loved ones, wherever they may be. Hear every human heart that sighs to you, pleading that what is of heaven may overcome what is of earth. Amen.
Daily Commentary: It is God’s great mercy that we should have gratitude for. When we sin, we have a just and righteous God who is merciful to our situation and bestows His love on His adopted children. Though we do not deserve to be saved we have been by the blood of Christ.
We hold honour and pleasure in being obedient sons and daughters . We must give honour to God. He requires our obedience to serve Him faithfully. It is these three things, fear, love, and obedience that brings us closer to God.
What prompts this love? Our service to God as Christians. He has liberated us from our sins yet we continually forget His commandments. It is this we should fear… losing our soul to our own selfish needs and putting God last. What is our attitude in all this?. How do you respond to God?
Our fear is based on how we stand before Him? Do you revere God and stand in wonder of everything He has made such as the earth, the sky and the heavens above. He has given us everything we need to live a holy and abundant life.
We know we are not worthy so the question I ask you is this…
Do you fear the Lord your God and what are you doing to show Him your love?
