The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, turning a man from the snares of death.
Building a relationship with God on the foundation of a deep reverential respect is what will turn the possibility of failure into the opportunity for success.
We are given a lifetime of choices which determine how rocky or sweet our road will be. How we make those choices is guided by our relationships. We learn from who and what we see.
Who surrounds your life? Do you pick friends who will lift you up or drag you down? Do you invite God to be a part of your life everyday or a few times during the year? Who do you see most often and what are you learning from them?
The fear of the Lord is an attitude. It’s a lifestyle. It’s a way of gathering what we need to make good choices.
When we pull from large deposits of wisdom and knowledge which we’ve received from the heart of God, our earth experience can be full of life. But when we stop seeking God and turn away from his wisdom, we turn away from life. Turning to God with a deep respect turns us away from deadly mistakes.
Our attitude of respect for God is a place not to visit, but to stay. It helps us enjoy life.
Keep seeking him.
