Today Reminder - 22 March 2012 (Fear)

My prayer for you for today is that you will know to fear God and that you will be filled even more with the desire and power to do what pleases Him, in Jesus name.

Philippians 2:12-13
Dear friends, you always followed my instructions when I was with you. And now that I am away, it is even more important. Work hard to show the results of your salvation, obeying God with deep reverence and fear. For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases Him.

Fear. It is one thing to fear what we know of and what we can see, but it is so important that you must know to fear God. We must remember that our lives will determine the final judgement that God will put on us. Therefore it is so important that you live a life obeying God and fearing Him, but not only for His judgement but for whom He is. Paul writes that God is working in you giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases Him. To me fear for God begins with knowing God and spending time in His Word to know more of Him and who He is.

The Psalmist wrote in Psalm 8:
When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers— the moon and the stars you set in place— what are mere mortals that you should think about them, human beings that you should care for them? 

God is much bigger than it is possible for us to imagine, it is so important that you bring who God is in context with who you are and where you stand in relationship with Him. Don’t make the mistake to not know how great God is, great in love but most of all, great in magnitude. Make sure you right size Him and that your first priority will be to obey Him with deep devotion and fear.

My dear friend, God is beyond our mind set and far above our imagination. How fortunate are we that God loves us with an immense and intense love that we will never be able to fully understand.

Have and awesome day dear friend of Jesus.
