My will could be my own,
My desires and my dreams.
My food could be the world
or passions that fuel me,
But that s not what my
food is. My food is Abba’s will.
My food is His desires.
My fuel is His purpose
for my life and for others.
He satisfies my needs,
My cravings, my longings, my soul.
He fills and completes all of me
if I only seek to know
His work for me and will for all.
This is my passion now:
to do the will of Him Who sent me
and to finish His work through His power.

Reflections: the Fear of the LORD

God has been teaching me much recently about what it means to fear Him. It does not mean to be afraid or scared of Him, but rather to love what He loves and hate what He hates; to value what He values and not value what He doesn’t value; to tremble at His word — His commands; to obey Him instantly, when it hurts, when it doesn’t make sense, or when we can’t see the benefits. Fearing Him keeps us from sinning. Fear of Him prevents us from falling away or back into sin. “He will be the sure foundation for your times, a rich store of salvation and wisdom and knowledge; the fear of the LORD is the key to this treasure.” ~Isaiah 33:6
If we fear God, we will obey Him even under great pressure. If we fear man, we will yield to man and drift toward that which benefits ourselves. Understanding the judgements of Christ is one aspect of fearing the LORD, I think. The fear of the LORD is the key to a healthy life of love, devotion, and service to Abba which will not be shaken.
