Holy Fear. Psalm 25:1-22. May 29 2020.
“Who is the man that fears the Lord? Him shall He teach in the way he chooses.” Psalm 25:12
It does not matter how young or old you are, your life is always about making decisions continually. Often times these decisions are very difficult and even serious. God is always willing to guide and direct you, but He wants us to fear Him. He wants to be respected and regarded highly by us.
This fear of Him needs to be a holy fear. A fear that keeps us from sinning and cleaving to God. We need to have a holy reverence for His Word as well.
Reverence means to serve God ,instead of ourselves. We must have confidence in Him and we need to understand His sovereignty. We know that God is perfect in knowledge , all sufficient in strength, and unconditionally loving. That is how we can trust Him with our decisions for the future.Psalm 25:12 promises, “ Who is the man that fears the Lord? Him shall he teach in the way He chooses.
In the midst of difficult decisions , we must check our hearts and check our attitude toward God. Always evaluate your situation in light of His character. His greatness is beyond human understanding.
