Good morning people who don’t want to miss out on all of God’s goodness
Psalm 25:12 NIV Who, then, are those who fear the Lord? He will instruct them in the ways they should choose.
An unholy fear focuses on ‘being punished for what we have done’, and as 1 John 4:18 shows us, this is not God’s plan.
But a holy fear focuses on ‘not missing out on all of Who God is’ – this is God’s plan!
God’s goodness, kindness, joy, peace and abundant life is available to everyone, but they are accessed through the doorway of godly decisions.
I want to live in this! I don’t want to miss out on all that Father has for me!
Therefore, it is a good thing for me to have a holy fear of God that results in me making decisions that help me to not miss out on all that Father has for me!
It’s not about ‘me being good enough’ – it’s about ‘access into Father’s lavish abundance”!
“So, do you fear the Lord?”
“Are you stepping towards God through the doorway of faith and godly decisions?”
“Are you accessing all of Who God is and what He has for you?”
Maybe some godly fear, and not just some more love, is needed.
