Please know that the greatest rewards come from following Jesus and not the world. There is so much wickedness all around us, and without God in our lives, we will go after things that lead us apart from Him and His saving grace. For this reason, real Christians have a fear of God in their lives. This means that we look up to Him, revere Him, and respect His commands more so than this life itself. The truth is, Jesus is God and will judge every person according to their works. Those who are made righteous in the Lord’s sight have nothing to fear. In saying this, we desire His judgments to fall upon us in this life, for only then can we truly repent and get right with Him while we still have breath. It is written, “the fear of the Lord is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb. Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.” (Psalm 19:9-11)
The Lord God is here for us. If you are not right with Him now, then cry out to God in all your confessions. He can already see the errors in your ways, including your secret faults, and will forgive you if you are sincere in getting right with Him. Is this your desire today? Anything that is sinful in God’s eyes needs to be expelled from us, and only the Holy Spirit can help us do this. The Spirit will lead us in all truth and away from what is evil. Our trust in God then increases and we become innocent in His sight. David wrote, “who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults. Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression. Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.” (Psalm 19:12-14) Jesus is my Lord, my God, my strength, and my Redeemer. Through His blood I am made clean. I am truly loved by God. Amen.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray that many people in every nation will come to know You as their Lord and Savior. Only then can they be saved. This can be true if more people get out of their comfort zones and start to be a witness for You in other countries, their own countries, states, and cities. Our mouths will only stay shut if You are not the one leading us. This is because people have lost the fear of God and have put other things ahead of You. So many people do not realize that they have made certain things in their lives idols, of which turned them to idolatry without knowing. These presumptuous sins are still evil and need to be taken care of in Your sight. I truly feel, God, that what keeps people from doing Your will is sin, including secret faults, and the errors in their own ways. Wake them up to the hell and destruction that is before them. This place is real and I pray that they will take Your hand, that You may lead them out of the fire while. They are worth saving. Lead these lost souls to You in heaven. I love You, Lord. Amen.
