Fear the Lord (Deuteronomy 10:12-22)
God has called us to walk in all HIS WAYS, to LOVE HIM alone, and to serve HIM with ALL our hearts. The Lord deserves an uncompromising heart in each one of us. “And now, O Israel, what does the Lord your God ask of you but to fear the Lord your God, to walk in all his ways, to love him, to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul (Deuteronomy 10:12).” What has the fear of the Lord produced in you? Do you have a heart fully devoted to His purpose?
“He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” (Micah 6:8)
We display a life of wisdom when we are fully devoted to God’s purpose. Is there something in your life that keeps you from being fully devoted to God and His purpose?
A Prayer for the Change of Heart we all need: Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me (Psalm 139:23-24 & Psalm 51:10).
