Fear of the Lord

Final days before the election. I know of many who are praying and fasting. Seek the Lord what you can do.

A lot is in the balance this time.

I've heard many say, "Well, we can't know what God has in mind this election."

No, we can't completely, but we can look at the candidates and compare what the say and do with the Word of God.

We can ask the Lord to give us wisdom.

Two key verses stand out to me on this matter.

Proverbs 28:5 "... those who see the Lord understand all things."

Psalm 111:10 "... the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. A good understanding have all those who do His commands."

We need to return to the fear of the Lord. We need to obey His commands.

This has really snapped me up and reminded me, "fear and revere" God." But to also seek His face. There so many verses about the Lord revealing Himself, giving knowledge and understanding, speaking to His Beloved about His plans.

Don't live your life thinking God is not involved, or speaking, or that you can't know what He's doing in you life and nation. You can.

Ask!

Do you live in Kissimee? If so, what church do you attend? We will be there for ten days at Christmas time and are looking for a church to attend Christmas Day and Christmas Eve.
