Live with Reverence

Scripture

“Blessed is the one who fears the Lord always, but whoever hardens his heart will fall into calamity.”‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭28:14‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Observation

The one who gives reverence to the Lord will always be blessed but whoever hardens his heart toward God will discover calamity.

Application

The “fear for God is the beginning of wisdom”. Those who honor the Lord in their life will experience blessings.  When we seek to live our lives contrary to the purposes of God then we will be living outside the protection and blessings of God. 

“Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers.”  ‭‭Psalms‬ ‭1:1-3‬ ‭ESV‬‬

May we be individuals who live in such a way that gives honor and glory to our Heavenly Father and thus experience the blessings of God. 

Prayer

Lord may I live my life out of a reverence for you. Be glorified through me today so I may experience the blessings you promise.
