THE FEAR THAT PROSPERS


 

Today’s Reading:

Psalm 128: 1-6

“Blessed is everyone who fears the Lord, who walks in His ways.” (v. 1)

 


There is one particular fear that every wise person must possess, and this is the fear of the Lord. While the absence of the fear of the Lord has brought untold hardship upon many peoples’ lives, those who walked in it in the past all fulfilled their destinies. One example of someone who fulfilled his destiny by walking in the fear of the Lord is JOSEPH. From his experience, we are left with no doubt that sexual Immorality is not an Invention of this Century.


As a matter of fact, it was this sin, among others that destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah. Besides, in the household of Joseph’s father, Jacob, sexual Immorality was noticeable – we read of Reuben’s escapade with his father’s wife in Genesis 35:22, which earned him (Reuben) a curse in Genesis 49:4. In spite of sexual Immorality around him, Joseph feared the Lord, and this kept him from sleeping with his master’s wife. With fear and trembling, he said in Genesis 39:9. “There is no one greater in this house than I, nor has he kept back anything from me but you, because you are his wife. How then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God”? Where did Joseph find it written that sleeping with another man’s wife is sin, not only against her husband but also against God? Considering that at the time he lived, the Law of Moses was not yet given; even Moses has not been born. It must have been the law of God written in his heart that constrained him (Romans 2:14-15). This law says in Exodus 20: 14: “Thou shall not commit adultery”.


Joseph prospered because he feared the Lord. Do you fear the Lord? What is your character in your Closet? How do you conduct yourself in hidden places? When you are corrected of wrongdoing by the Spiritual leadership God has placed over you, do you question them on where it is written in the Scripture? Even after showing you where it is written, do you still argue? On account of being chastised, have you not changed your Church or relocated to another local assembly three to four times? Do you really fear the Lord? If you really fear the Lord you will not be dating a married man or woman. If you really want to prosper, always remember that Psalm 128:1-2 Says: “Blessed is everyone who fears the Lord, Who walks in His Ways? When you eat the labour of your hands, You shall be happy, and it shall be well with you”


Beloved, fear the Lord and abstain from all evil.
