Who is the man who fears the Lord? Him will He instruct in the way that He should choose. Psalm 25:12
Are you someone who fears the Lord?
Fearing the Lord is not cowering in the type of fear we think of first.
Submitting to the One who created all things.
Putting God first and foremost in all things.
Knowing how small you are in comparison to all of creation, eternity, and God Himself.
I know we cannot always put God first, but you can think about Him and what He would want you to do.
With even tiny things like your response to literally anything.
Thinking about what God would want you to do brings security knowing you are under the shadow of His wings.
In return for placing God on the throne of your life, He promises to instruct you in the way He chooses.
And God chooses the best for you.
How do we know that?
Because Romans 8:28 reminds us that “we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to His purpose“.
Walking with God, submitting to Him, brings us to God’s purpose for us.
And that is good.
Maybe your life has been affected by other’s poor choices.
And maybe you bear the brunt of that.
Remain under God’s instruction as He works everything out for good.
Through trials of your choosing or not, choose to remain God’s.
Confident He will work everything out for your good, because you love Him.
