In the 34th Chapter of Psalms, it’s seen that God gives simple concepts to securing that we never want or need anything. The requirement is simple but complex: we’ve got to FEAR Him.
To fear God is to reverence Him, to acknowledge that He, alone, is God above all Gods, that He has ALL POWER, SEES AND KNOWS ALL, IS ALL AND IS EVERYWHERE AT THE SAME TIME! To fear Him means that His Word has been made sacred in your heart. We are subject to obedience because we fear Him.
God wants you to have the things that you want and need. Isn’t it interesting how God says “want” instead of “need?” This means that He’s got everything concerning you, not just your needs, but also your wants. Those needs and wants must align with His Will for your life!
How do we know if they align with what God wants for our lives? We must stay in communication with Christ. Yes, prayer is needed. Communication is two-way. We ask or talk to God but we don’t take the time to hear the response or we’re not willing to do the things that God has required of us before we can receive our breakthroughs, our deliverance.
A Listening Ear: Try going to God with a listening ear. Drown out all of the other noises that create confusion and havoc in our lives and instead focus on the fundamental sound of Christ.
Since we are His Children, He assures us that we know His voice but we get so caught up in looking for the stars that we miss the Sun (Son)! John 10:27-28Erica Nelson
How do you fear Him? I’ve asked this already but the question is so important. Keeping God’s Commandments is a part of fearing God! If you find it hard, it’s ok, God knows. We must make a conscious effort to sin less.
The other “fear” mentioned in this 34th Chapter has to do with our physical and Spiritual fears (Psalm 34:4 KJV). God delivers us from them! Read it for yourself.
God won’t beg you to become FREE!
