The importance of Revering God

Hello reader

I thank God almighty for your precious life and taking the time to read this message. I pray that God’s holy presence and love will manifest through this message wherever you are in Jesus mighty name, Amen.

No fear of God=No wisdom:

With the rapidly spreading coronavirus at hand, scientists predicting a third wave and the insecurity of job positions, fear is a natural feeling that can subtly govern our hearts. Our mental response is to worry, which glorifies the fear aroused from life in 2021.

Unfortunately, society has removed the reverential fear of God, which makes us prone to fearing everything else. When consumed with fear and uncertainty, it invites confusion to flourish. There will be an absence of divine wisdom and common sense in our decision making. A clear example of this is how the Israelites lost patience in the wilderness and worshipped foreign idols, even though it was God who delivered them out of slavery in Egypt!

However the bible says in Proverbs 9:10,

[10] “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.”

Fearing God = 😊😇🙌:

Fearing God is worship. It’s a lifestyle that glorifies him from an inwardly pure motive. It manifests in our Character and actions. It hates what the Lord hates and loves what the Lord loves.

This fear of God drives us to humbly acknowledge God in all our ways because we respect his wisdom and counsel. So we don’t lean on our own carnal understanding, but rather trust in the God who knows all our needs before we even ask! (Proverbs 3:5-6 & Matthew 6:8).

This gives us stability and mental assurance that everything will work out fine! Even when we encounter difficulties, God is working it out for our good🙌

Jeremiah 29:11

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

So, if we honour and submit to the perfect plan God has for our lives, we have confidence and the peace of God knowing that everything is working out for our good‼️😊

Most significantly, our trust in God is strengthened, as we see the faithfulness and truth of God’s promises manifesting in our lives, if we truly revere him 🙌

Godly wisdom and Divine Discernment 🙏:

In order to discern the perfect and sovereign will of God for our lives, we have to consistently fear (deep reverence for) who God is because it leads to the “beginning” of wisdom. Therefore, this word implies that God-fearing wisdom is a virtue that needs to be diligently sought for on a daily basis.

Sustaining Godly wisdom can only be done through walking in humility and the renewal of our minds with God’s word.

If you have been saved through believing in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead (Romans 10:9-10), you still have an old sinful mind, which needs to be transformed with God’s holy word (Romans 12:2).

Your will or God’s will 🤔, you decide… :

Proverbs 23:7

[7] “For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. “Eat and drink!” he says to you, But his heart is not with you.”

If we don’t purify our thoughts with God’s holy word, our old nature (and fleshly desires) resurfaces. This creates a waging war in our hearts between choosing our own selfish motives or God’s sovereign will for our lives.

But once Again, Jeremiah 29:11 says:

[11] “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

We may still be too proud or lack enough faith to trust God’s plan for our lives. This is evident through worrying, because someone that trusts God is at peace (Isaiah 26:3).

Sometimes, we attempt to worry our way into finding the solution to our issues because we may lack faith in God’s divine instruction, and are afraid that His way is not what we like.

However, why should we be afraid of trusting a perfect God who knows what is best for us, when we know we’re not perfect?

Do we really trust ourselves to successfully lead our own lives?

Will following our own path give us inner satisfaction and peace?

Regardless of how we feel about making decisions for our future, we should always meditate on and strive to do what Philippians 4:6-7 says:

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Humility and Discipline 🙇‍♂️ or God’s rebuke‼️:

As a God-fearing Christian, you should aim to do what 1 Peter 5:6 says:

“Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time,”

We need to remain disciplined to obey God’s will for our lives.

Otherwise, we will lean on our own understanding ,which is contrary to what the God commands us to do in Proverbs 3:5 :


[5] Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding;

Relying on our own understanding highlights our lack of faith in God, which produces sin (Romans 14:23)

Distrusting the sovereign will of God in our lives leads to disobedience, which slowly hardens our hearts towards his righteous instruction. So God will rebuke us out of his desire for us to prosper through steadfast obedience, which is why he says in Revelation 3:19:

[19] “As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.”

Amen.

Salvation ✝️💓‼️::

If you don’t know who Jesus is or you may have strayed away from the faith, he is deeply longing to have a true relationship with you!!

That tugging on your heart is the Holy Spirit of God pleading with you to come to the saving arms of Christ!

Romans 6:23

‘For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.’

The penalty for our sin is eternal separation from God in Hell, but God loved us too much to simply let this happen! Instead he sent his only son, Jesus Christ, to suffer the consequences for our sin by dying on the Cross. And he rose again three days later to condemn the power of sin and death which we were justly bound to!

All you have to do is believe in the Lord Jesus, repent (willingly turn away) from your sins and you will be saved and inherit eternal life!

I’ve received God’s grace and I would love you to as well

You can do this by calling out to God and he will save you from hell. He is a merciful and loving God, not wishing that you should die in your sins. Ask him for forgiveness and believe in Jesus’s sacrifice for your sins.

If you’re not sure, you can pray this prayer (aloud) 👇:

God,

I come to you just as I am. A sinner.

I believe that Jesus died on the Cross for my sins and that you rose him again on third day. Please forgive me for my sins.

Thank you for dying for my sins on the cross. I receive your forgiveness.

I pray that you will empower me to walk in holiness and righteousness. I ask that you may fill me up with your Holy Spirit.

Amen.

I declare now that I am a born-again Child of God. I am free from the power of sin and full of the righteousness of God. Thank you, Jesus, for saving my soul. I am yours and you are mine in Jesus’ name. Amen.

If you said that prayer with belief in your heart, you are a child of God‼️👶 🧒❤️🥳

Praise the Lord!💕🥳✝️

Heaven is rejoicing over the decision you have just made!

Now we must seek the Lord, and he will lead us in the everlasting, righteous path of life until we see him in heaven! (Philippians 2:12). Hallelujah!

Tips that will help you on your journey with Christ:

⁃ pray daily

⁃ Start reading the bible (preferably start with Romans ch 6 – 8 to consolidate your understanding of what Jesus dying truly means for us and the gospels books which are Matthew, Mark, Luke and John)

⁃ Find a Christ preached church (Ask God to lead you)

We have to turn away from our past sins and obey the word of God.

May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God and the sweet fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen.
