Psalm 33:18 – Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear him, on those who hope in his steadfast love
God watches over those who live in awe of Him. God’s love is unchanging for those who trust in Him for their provision.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight. (Proverbs 9:10) Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. (Proverbs 3:5)
Fear the Lord and trust completely in the Lord. On the surface looks like two simple precepts that would seem easy. However, fear of the Lord requires a reverence as I know God is my Creator and recognition that His ways are better than mine. Complete trust in the Lord means that I have submitted all areas of my life over to Him. This can’t be a situational trust or based on my circumstances or limited knowledge of a subject matter.
Thank you for creating the world and loving us out of everything to send Jesus so we can have a relationship with you. Help your Spirit guide me as I follow you to be in reverence and trust.
