THE FEAR OF THE LORD

Psalm 128:1-4
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 plants
All around your table.
Behold, thus shall the man be blessed
Who fears the Lord.

THE PROMISES ARE TO THOSE WHO FEAR THE LORD
To fear the Lord is simple – walk in obedience to His word – and with faith in His promises.

YOUR LABOUR
The labour of those who fear the Lord – always produces the peaceable fruit of righteousness.
Hebrews 12.11

YOUR WIFE
Your wife is the clearest expression of your trust in the Lord.
How you treat your marriage partner reveals how you fear the Lord.

YOUR CHILDREN
Your children grow in God according to what they see in their parents and their peers.

YOUR HOUSE
Your house is the House of God.
It is your first church and therefore your highest calling.

YOUR TABLE
Your table reveals what you are feeding on.
Those who fear the Lord – feed on spiritual things from the goodness of God.
Those who don’t – fill their life with earthly pleasures and treasures.

PROVERBS 1:7
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge,
But fools despise wisdom and instruction.
