"By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the LORD men
depart from evil."  (Proverbs 16:6)


Today's Thought

Have you ever wondered why there seems to be so much evil in the world
today?  According to today's verse, the answer is simple:  There is no fear
of the Lord!

The "fear of God" referred to here indicates much more than reverential awe and respect. The Psalmist tells us in Psalm 25:14 that we can't receive the full revelation of God's covenant until his fear is deeply rooted in us: "The secret of the Lord is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant". This verse connects an understanding of the covenant with the fear of God. In short, all revelation is tied to his holy fear.

Mankind cannot truly "fear" God until they know Him and His nature.
Because this age we live in is so self-centered, self-sufficient, and
self-serving, few are found that truly set their heart to KNOW God as He
reveals Himself to us in His Word.

Is your heart set to KNOW God?  Do you long to know and understand His
covenants?  Is your desire for Him stronger than your desire for anything
this world can offer?  If so, you can truly say that you "fear God" and
have departed from evil.

Separation . . . Consecration . . . Desire!  These three things will open
the door to an ever-increasing revelation of Who He Is!

Seek Him . . . Serve Him . . . Love Him!  He's worthy!


Today's Prayer

Father, my desire for You is growing day by day as I spend time with You in a loving relationship with You.  Lord help me to further consecrate my life for Your use . . . may I be a vessel fit for use by You!  Lord, teach me
your Word . . . teach me Your ways . . . help me to understand the depth of Your love shown through Your covenants, your promises, your Word!  I am like a child eager to learn from You!  Teach me, Father, till this world
has no more hold on me and I am totally Yours in every way! Father I love
you with my whole heart! Amen!

Have a blessed day!
