A Life of Blessing
by Inspiration Ministries
"How blessed is everyone who fears the LORD, who walks in His ways." – Psalm 128:1 NASB Some may think that fearing the Lord is an archaic concept or not appropriate for modern times. But this fear – reverence – is central to a life of blessing. In practical terms, what does it mean to fear the Lord? It means that we revere Him. We worship Him as God Almighty. We realize that He is our Creator, our Judge. God is perfect and holy. We should not take Him for granted but be serious about our relationship with Him. Focus on Him. Be dedicated to knowing and obeying His Word. Seek to please Him. Submit everything to Him. Seek first His Kingdom. This fear should be more than a command. It should be our desire! When we commit our lives to Him, He promises to pour out blessings and provide what we need. “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom” (Psalm 111:10). He also promises to make us fruitful, give us productivity in everything we do, reward us with joy and happiness, and enable us to be content and satisfied, not restless or troubled. We will see blessings flow out of our lives into those around us and into the work that we do. Do you want God’s blessings? Make sure you fear Him. Don’t take Him for granted, but make Him the center of your life. Be serious about His Word. And seek first His Kingdom.
