FEAR OF GOD IS THE BEGINNING Prayer for September 27

fear of god is the beginning

Fear of God is the beginning – Prayer for September 27. Praise the Lord everybody!  There was a time in America when a person was describing someone that he respected as an upstanding citizen He would be referred to as a “God fearing” man, code for “this is a man you can trust.” You heard that term a lot in this country back when It was considered to be a “God fearing, Christian” country.

Bible Verse for Today

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth forever.” (Psalm 111:10)

The fact that there were men considered to be “God fearing” all over this country at one time and the fact that the fear of God is only the “beginning of wisdom” according to Gods word speaks volumes as to the state of America then and now.

There was a time when we knew as a country that it was God that was the hope of this nation and that in all things we were to look to Him for wisdom on how to deal with the situation. Now we reverence man more than God, how another man feels is more important than how God feels. We go out of our way not to offend each other and rail on about “political correctness” but we offend God every day with our behavior.

Father God, help us to remember who we were in you

God is looking for men who will fear Him enough that they will reject all evil and avoid the practice of it, men that He can wave in Satan’s face when the accuser of the brethren comes around. Such were many of the men who shaped and established this Country, they prospered, and the country prospered because they feared the Lord, this is the beginning of wisdom, the first building block, the corner stone of obtaining and building wisdom. The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom!

Where are the God-fearing men of this world? That is a question we all must ask ourselves when we look in our mirrors every morning because that’s where it starts, it starts with us. God bless you all.

Fear of God is the Beginning Prayer for Today

Father God, help us to remember who we were in you. Give us back as people, the fear of the Lord we once had, which is the beginning of wisdom. In Jesus name we pray, Amen.
