…“the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy one is understanding…” Proverbs 4:7 (NKJV)

    The moment you gave your life to Christ, you came into a kingdom (Hebrew 12:22) where things are governed by the principles of God who is the king of the kingdom. In this kingdom, you don’t live according to your discretion or according to worldly standards but rather you live according to God’s dictates because that is what qualifies you to walk in the God kind of blessings. Now among the many dictates of God, walking in the fear of the Lord is something every Christian must walk in because it grants you access to the higher life in Christ Jesus. Walking in Godly reverence is of utmost importance in this life because it helps you to live your life through the eyes of God and not through your own eyes. It helps you to walk in the divine plan God has chalked out for you and this makes you relish all that God has kept for you in Christ Jesus. Today you find people who live their lives carelessly. They don’t consider God in the things that they do, they just live according to their fleshly desires and make decisions based on worldly views and toss aside God’s views and ideas which certainly brings them problems at the end of the day but you see, God didn’t create us to live according to our own dictates even though we have the liberty to do so, He gave us the free liberty to exercise it in a kingdom way and not in a worldly way.

       God has kept for us a path to follow in His kingdom. For example, when you receive financial blessings, God says pay your tithe from it and sow your seeds, when you give birth to a child, God says bring the child back to be dedicated to Me, when you start a new business, God says, the first fruit that comes to you belongs to Me. Before you get married, God says seek spiritual guidance, when you wake up every day, God says have some moments of fellowship with me, when people are gathering in my house to have a corporate worship and fellowship, God says, don’t ignore it but take advantage of it. All these and many more, God expects you to carry out because there are blessings attached to it and this is what He wants. When you do these things, you walk in Godly reverence and God is pleased. But when you don’t do them, you suffer the same faith that people of the world suffer. So make a conscious decision to walk in Godly reverence today, the benefits are enormous. It helps you walk in wisdom (Proverbs 9:10) and wisdom the bible says will multiply your days and increase your years (Proverbs 9:11).


Walking in the fear of the Lord causes your life to go in the way God has planned!


All powerful and ever-living father, I thank you for bringing to me your Word today, It has brought me a clearer understanding of your will. Therefore, I choose to walk in Godly reverence now and all the days of my life in the name of Jesus. Amen!
