PROFIT IN THE FEAR OF GOD- PT.1



 

The fear of the Lord leads to life: Then one rests content, untouched by trouble.
Proverbs 19:23

I remember my days at Evangel College, how I dreaded being caned by Mr. Madu.
The skill by which he drops that stick on an ass could make one stand for days.
I wasnt a rebellious student but there could be occasions of mass punishment which I often prayed wouldnt happen.

The fear of Mr. Madu made us listen attentively in class, do math and further math assignments and not turn our necks when he was invigilating.

Unconsciously, we got used to behaving in math class at least...LOL

However, the kind of fear God seeks is not the kind we gave to Mr. Madu.
The fear for Mr. Madu made us sit up in maths class; we dint take the "attitude" into other classes because that fear didnt change us.

GOD DESIRES AND DESERVES the reverence of his person and deep appreciation of his wisdom that leads us to make choices that please him. This kind of fear transforms your life.

Proverbs says the fear of the Lord leads to life.

When you have awesome reverence for God, his person and principles, you would enjoy (LIFE-the vitality, fruitfulness and fulfillment of existence).
That really is LIFE.

God wants to lead you into LIFE. He wants to help you rest content (in satisfaction) and untouched by trouble.

Have RESPECT FOR HIS INSTRUCTION. Stop being afraid of popular opinion.

FEAR GOD; FEEL LIFE!

GOD IS KIND : The hurt of dissapointment

Sometimes you can't even ask why. Perhaps because you know everything doesn't quite lie in God's hands. Yet when it comes to things you have absolutely no control over, you are tempted to think it's in His hands. Even at that, you still can't ask why. Well maybe you can, but I can't.  I have had a good dose of pain and disappointment enough to separate my ideology of God from life's occurrences. Before life started giving me rude shocks, I used to think God will always protect me by preventing pain. As I grew older and met with more battles, I learnt to accept the part of God's protection which delivers  me from pain well after I have felt its excruciating bite and I came to this conclusion; God is and is forever kind. The earth is fallen; I may not be exempted from all its ugliness, but God will always be kind enough to deliver me if He doesn't prevent it.   By the time you will be reading this, I would have shared my testimony. While I hop

GOD IS KIND: The emptiness of hope

Read part 1 here  In Lagos, I fell ill as soon as I landed. The city is crazy. The traffic is unholy and the carbon monoxide infested air is an extension of hell. I didn't want to get back on that road to any hospital so we got a qualified nurse to come treat me at home.  The Nurse said she couldn't treat me except I did a pregnancy test alongside malaria test. Both came out positive. I was glad that the sickness wasn't Lagos madness inspired. My baby must have wanted to notify me since I refused to take a second look. Unfortunately, she used one of those quinine brands  in attempt to protect the baby. She sadly didn't check with me first.  I became miserable from all the itching like one who hugged devil's beans. I tried to rest as much as I could and thoroughly enjoyed both my family and ministry itinerary while being pampered like an egg. I preached passionately at the event I was invited to. I talked about loving God and serving him devotedly even when disa

GOD IS KIND: The Courage of patience

Read part 2 here It was a beautiful morning and yours truly was still bleeding.  I just got done making breakfast and was about to set the table when I felt an extra weight down there. I left the kitchen, washed my hands and sent it below while squatting. Men and brethren, see who fell off me.  The 1cm Fibroid they said I should be operated for A better view of the monster My husband and I gave thanks . God had delivered me early. I took these photos as proofs of his kindness and as reminders that He is still with and for me, regardless.  I became hopeful and patiently waited to conceive another. I can't deny  that I had several moments of sadness and weeping. My husband who wasn't moved by the situation became worried for my worry. He bought me things, took me out regularly and kept asking what he could do to make me happy. While I appreciated his efforts, they weren't enough to comfort my grieving soul. I had many, many days of sadness.   January went by, so did February.
