Beaver Creek Pictures

5/8 of our family went to Beaver Creek conservation area, a place outside the city where you can hike. Mom and Isaac went to look for crocuses, and me, Adelle, and Dad went to feed the chickadees.

Those that Fear God Are:

11. Given the Ability to Excel (Come forth of the all)
Ec 7:18 It is good that thou shouldest take hold of this; yea, also from this withdraw not thine hand: for he that feareth God shall come forth of them all.

12. Given a Treasure

Isa 33:6 And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the fear of the LORD is his treasure.

13. Given Life and Peace

Mal 2:5 My covenant was with him of life and peace; and I gave them to him for the fear wherewith he feared me, and was afraid before my name.

14. Given Houses

Ex 1:17 But the midwives feared God, and did not as the king of Egypt commanded them, but saved the men children alive.

Ex 1:20 Therefore God dealt well with the midwives: and the people multiplied, and waxed very mighty.

God dealt well with these midwives because they feared God and protected the people of God.

Ex 1:21 And it came to pass, because the midwives feared God, that he made them houses.

God blessed them with houses because they feared Him.

15. Preserved Alive

De 6:24 And the LORD commanded us to do all these statutes, to fear the LORD our God, for our good always, that he might preserve us alive, as it is at this day.

Again, we see that the LORD expected His children to fear Him.

In fact, He expects all mankind to fear Him.

When we do, He will bless.

He told the children of Israel that if they feared Him He would preserve their life.

16. Delivered from Enemies

2Ki 17:39 But the LORD your God ye shall fear; and he shall deliver you out of the hand of all your enemies.

God promised to deliver those who fear Him from their enemies.

When you fear God, He will fight for you.

He is there to conquer your enemies.

This would include the spiritual enemies, too.

17. Blessed in their Labours

Job 1:8 Job was a man who feared God.

Job 1:9 Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought?

Job 1:10 Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land.

Satan too recognized that Job feared God.

BUT Satan also saw that God had blessed Job.

God had put a hedge about him and his house

and blessed the works of his hands.

Job obviously worked with his hands

and God blessed his work much because of his fear.

Job, a man who feared God

was blessed in his labours.

18. Given Wisdom & Understanding

Job 28:28 And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.

The fear of the Lord is wisdom.

Pr 9:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.

Pr 15:33 The fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom; and before honour is humility.

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom

and the instruction of wisdom.

If you want God to bless you with wisdom

you need to fear Him.

Ps 25:12 What man is he that feareth the LORD? him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose.

When you fear God

He will teach you in His choicest ways.

There are many paths you can take in life.

You can go in many directions.

BUT the way of the Lord is taught to those who fear Him.

God will show you the best path for your life

but you must fear Him before He does.
