"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding. To him belongs eternal praise." Psalm 111:10
"The fear of the Lord is pure, enduring forever. The decrees of the Lord are firm, and all of them are righteous." Psalm 19:9
I'm only at the very beginning of knowing what this even means. The part I am certain on is that He does indeed deserve to be praised forever. Because He leads us in unimaginable ways. He paves the way to doors we never thought we would see. Yesterday, He led me to a new one. A door I thought was unattainable. A door I thought I could never get to. A door with a threshold I'm scared to step over. A door I never thought I deserved.
Why is it hard to accept blessings sometimes? Why do I let fear stand in my way? When the only fear in my life should be the holy and reverent fear of the almighty God who loves me! A fear that leads to wanting to know Him more. To know His will and be in it.
A fear that gives wisdom and knowledge.
And is good.
And is pure.
And is sure.
A fear that brings forth praise!
I looked out the window last night into a dark sky, but even in the darkness, there was light. A bright and glowing moon reflecting the light of the sun.
And I am reminded of the light.
That is given by the Son, my Savior. And the wonderful Spirit who guides me, comforts me.
And leads me up to the door.
I seek. He hears.
I ask. He answers.
I knock. He opens.
God, thank you for opportunities that only arise by Your hand. Thank you, Christ, for making the way. Holy Spirit, guide me across the threshold.
May the door be opened wide.
"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened." Matthew 7:7
"Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me." Revelation 3:20
We will not always get the things we want, but the Lord will give the things that we need. Have you asked Him? He wants to hear our cries. Are you seeking Him? He pursues us, let us pursue Him back. Have you knocked at the door? No one knows when we are standing on their doorstep, until we knock. Let God know you are there and be overwhelmed with surprise at where He leads you once you step over the threshold. Lord, come, I want to dine with You.
