Humility and fear of the Lord

The humility and fear of the Lord.

The reward for humility and fear of the Lord is riches and honor and life.

Proverbs 22:4 ESV.

All the glory and praises to the living God. Greetings and warm wishes to all !

The first and foremost thing that we need to have is the humbleness. Seeking God with humility and lowliness is surely the way to get closer to the Almighty. But pretending to be humble before God is unworthy. Moreover, living a life of double standards is nothing but sin. When we truly humble ourselves and repent for our sins before God, He is happy to forgive us. Certainly our life will not be same when we humble ourselves even before men. With our attitude and behaviour in lowliness before God and men shows the righteousness that we have imbibed. Furthermore as the Bible says in Luke 14:11, “For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted”. Therefore let us humbly submit to God and live a righteous life for the glory of the living God.

Fearing God is an aspect which is directly related to our humility towards God and as well as men. Fearing God is out of reverence for who He is. We glorify God when we make Him our top priority. When we keep God above everybody or everything; we are actually breaking all those idols which we might have made for ourselves either knowingly or unknowingly. As the scriptures says according to Deut. 6:24, “The Lord commanded us to obey all these decrees and to fear the Lord our God, so that we might always prosper and be kept alive, as is the case today”. It is clear from the both the above verses, humility and fear of the Lord are the rich sources of spiritual richness, honor and the eternal life.

In Jesus’ matchless name all the glory to the living God. Amen.
