Scripture:

Psalm 33:18 – Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear him, on those who hope in his steadfast love

Observation:

God watches over those who live in awe of Him. God’s love is unchanging for those who trust in Him for their provision.

Application:

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.

Prayer:

Father,
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.
