The Fear of the Lord
Today's Passage: Psalms 112
Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
1. Praise the Lord!
How joyful are those who fear the Lord
and delight in obeying his commands.
2. Their children will be successful everywhere;
an entire generation of godly people will be blessed.
3. They themselves will be wealthy,
and their good deeds will last forever.
4. Light shines in the darkness for the godly.
They are generous, compassionate, and righteous.
5. Good comes to those who lend money generously
and conduct their business fairly.
6. Such people will not be overcome be evil.
Those who are righteous will be long remembered.
7. They do not fear bad news;
they confidently trust the Lord to care for them.
8. They are confident and fearless
and can face their foes triumphantly.
9. They share freely and give generously to those in need.
Their good deeds will be remembered forever.
They will have influence and honor.
10. The wicked will see this and be infuriated.
They will grind their teeth in anger;
they will slink away, their hopes thwarted.
Psalm 112 NLT
We are so confused about the Fear of the Lord.
And yet, God tells us to fear Him.
And fearing Him will bring a blessing.
Now the word fear has many meanings.
That topic is for a bible lesson, not for meditation strategies.
Take this passage apart piece by piece.
There are so many wonderful nuggets in this passage.
It is almost too much to contain in our hearts and minds.
I encourage you to use Lectio Devina for this passage:
Please Lord allow us to lean into the wonder of who you are.
Allow us to fear you in healthy fear.
Allow us to know that in fearing you well, we have no other fear to concern ourselves with.
Allow us to grow in you.
Allow us to be your women and men.
Allow us to be salt and light in this world.
Bless us as we learn how to fear you well.
In your precious name I pray
Please leave your name and first initial here.
We are moving in some pretty big ways.
