Serve the Lord with Fear

[su_heading style=”1″][su_button link=”#” color=”#227d11″ size=”5″ style=”5″ dark=”0″ radius=”10″ icon=” target=”blank”] Serve the LORD with fear [/su_button][/su_heading]

“He will bless them that fear the LORD, both small and great.” (Psalms 115:13) (KJV)

Let us mediate the holy word of God,

[su_pullquote align=”left”] Lord of Israel says “Don’t be afraid for I am with you, how much ever they afflict you I am there right beside you and you will be multiplied more and grew that they will grieve before you”[/su_pullquote]

All the disciples, Saints, prophets had one thing in common which made their life as a blessing and which brought them near to the Lord, It is the Fear of the Lord. They loved their God with all their heart but they fear for the one they worship is Holy!

“Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord.” (Hebrews 12:14)

When Israel people started to multiply in the Land of Egypt, a new king who doesn’t know about Joseph took the throne. He afflicted and tortured them yet Bible says how much ever they were afflicted the more they multiplied and grew!

“But the more they afflicted them, the more they multiplied and grew. And they were grieved because of the children of Israel.” (Exodus 1:12)

Friends even in your life you might be in this situation do not be discouraged for today the Lord of Israel says “Don’t be afraid for I am with you, how much ever they afflict you I am there right beside you and you will be multiplied more and grew that they will grieve before you” . You are His precious child nothing could harm you.

As they failed in this plan Pharaoh called upon the Hebrew midwives (Doctors) Shiphrah, and  Puah and asked them to kill the male child as soon as it is born. But Bible says,

“But the midwives feared God, and did not as the king of Egypt commanded them, but saved the men children alive.” (Exodus 1:17)

Yes these Hebrew women feared the Lord of Israel and kept the male child’s alive and lied to Pharaoh as,

“And the king of Egypt called for the midwives, and said unto them, Why have ye done this thing, and have saved the men children alive? And the midwives said unto Pharaoh, Because the Hebrew women are not as the Egyptian women; for they are lively, and are delivered ere the midwives come in unto them.” (Exodus 1:18,19)

[su_pullquote align=”right”] Do not fear people or devil for they don’t have any rights to destroy your soul only God has that authority. As wise Solomon said fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, let us follow the way Saints lived and be one among them in the Kingdom of God![/su_pullquote]

Yes, though they know that Pharaoh will kill them and destroy their family if he comes to know the truth they showed mercy upon the child for they knew that the God of Israel is the God of all and the creator! There is nothing that He cannot do! And they feared the Lord who is their eternal King! And Bible says because they showed mercy upon the child the Lord blessed their family,

“Therefore God dealt well with the midwives: and the people multiplied, and waxed very mighty. And it came to pass, because the midwives feared God, that he made them houses.” (Exodus 1: 20,21)

Let us examine our life today, are we living in the “fear of people” or we are living in the “Fear of the Lord”? Do not fear people or devil for they don’t have any rights to destroy your soul only God has that authority. As wise Solomon said fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, let us follow the way Saints lived and be one among them in the Kingdom of God!

“Serve the LORD with fear, and rejoice with trembling” (Psalms 2:11) Amen.
