Today’s Scripture: The fear of the LORD leads to life, and whoever has it rests satisfied; he will not be visited by harm. Proverbs 19:23 ESV
Living life to the fullest is found in the LORD. We were promised glorious rest in Jesus Christ from Isaiah. Moses shared God’s promise of rest and protection in Leviticus 26 and Solomon in Proverbs 19 is giving the same instruction as well.
Jesus came to fulfill the law and with Him He carries the promises of God. God’s Word is clear that the beginning of life and rest lies in the Fear of the LORD. This fear is total reverence for who God is.
God is our LORD and we are His. If we walk with Him, He will walk with us. But, and this is a big but, if we walk contrary to Him we will not find the life of promise nor rest. We must choose if we fear God or fear the life the world promises.
Who are we walking with today? Who and what do you fear?
Today’s Prayer: Almighty God, I praise You for who You are. You are God and I am Yours. I only fear You dear LORD. Thank You for Your promise of life, rest and protection. Forgive me for fearing the things of this world that rob my life and rest. I am running to You so I can walk with You. In You I find life. Amen
