MESSAGE:

What a great honour it is for God to positively testify of you while you are still alive! This is worth more than gold! Job and Abraham were two men who received this honour because they feared God (Job 1:8, Genesis 18:19). Those who walk in the fear of God have nothing to fear in life, because the fear of God grants them access to His secrets. To fear God is not only to obey Him, but to ensure that everything in our sphere of influence obeys God. There are some fathers who pleased to serve God but are not bothered about their childrens lack of interest in God. Abraham did not only fear God, he also ensured that his entire household walked in Gods ways. No wonder God blessed him mightily. Abraham and his household were not only blessed, they became a channel of blessings to others. Today, we still make reference to the Abrahamic blessings. You are truly blessed when you receive blessings that no curse can negate. When you walk in the fear of the Lord, not only will your efforts be crowned with great blessings, lost opportunities will also become recovered, and your life becomes the headquarters of blessings through which millions of lives are positively impacted. Those who make up their mind to fear God, no matter the circumstances, can never be forsaken, even when it seems all hope is lost; God will always show up for them to reassure them of His faithfulness. The fear of the Lord gives Gods children access to divine direction and divine security.

 

God is the only One to be feared, for He alone is eternal (Matthew 10:28). There are those I see who fear their bosses but dont fear God. If you say you dont fear your boss, why do you still allow him make inappropriate advances towards you? Is it not because you fear losing your job? Cant you see that it is foolishness not to remember that both your boss and your job are in the hands of God? Some people fear what will happen to them, and hence, they continue to live their life with a man who is legally married to another woman. Open Heavens Devotional 2017 Sunday 12 February 2017 The secrets of the Lord. Cant you see that you are just postponing the evil day? You better make amends so that the peace of God can return to your life. Anyone threatening you has limited powers, but God, who is to be feared, has unlimited power. When you keep a distance from all that God hates, His secrets will be made available to you. If you fear God, it will reflect in where you take counsel from, those you partner with, and even how you appear in public. If you fear Him, you will always do those things that make Him happy. Joseph feared the Lord and he made up his mind not to do a great wickedness, and sin against God (Genesis 39:9). Although that decision landed him in prison, the prison was the secret of his access to the throne.

 

Key Point

Everything you give up for God is a give-away for the ultimate.
