Blessed is the man...

Blessed is every one who fears the LORD, Who walks in His ways. When you eat the labor of your hands, you shall be happy, and it shall be well with you. Your wife shall be like a fruitful vine in the very heart of your house, your children like olive plantsall around your table. Behold, thus shall the man be blessed who fears the LORD. Ps 128:1-4

I think this is one of the most beautiful and loving promises in God’s word! Think about it:  Your efforts will be prosperous.  You will have happiness, and be “well” or contented.  Your home life will be sweet! All of this stems from one thing: “…thus shall the man be blessed who fears the LORD.”

Remember we spoke about fear a few weeks ago:  Fear of the Lord is best described as “awe” or “reverence”. When we acknowledge the might, the power, the majesty, of the Living God, who is our heavenly Father, we come to a realization that we are under His protection.  We are filled with His power and might. 2 Tim 1:7 tells us:  For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

So today, draw into the presence of the mighty, powerful, majestic Lord of hosts, and know that you are under His protection and filled with His power and might!

Till the whole world hears,

Pastor Clay
