When you look up at the night sky and take in the beauty of the stars, realize God created them almost as an after thought. Hidden in the verse about making the two great lights (sun and moon) to govern the day and the night, is a small sentence that reads, “He also made the stars.” Gen. 1:16
In dealing with man, God would show himself faithful every time! Even though man could not be as faithful to Him. “Lord, what are human beings that you care for them, mere mortals that you think of them?” Psalm 144:3
In these last days we live in there is no fear of the Lord. No reverence of God Almighty. “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.” Proverbs 1:7
So many people cry out to God, believers as well as unbelievers, for answers to their problems. Yet, they have no fear of the Lord, no respect, no honor. These are important to God. “A son honors his father, a slave his master. If I am a father, where is the honor due me? If I am a master, where is the respect due me? Says the Lord Almighty.” Malachi 1:6
In my humble opinion, God is good. His power is indescribable. His wisdom and knowledge has no end. His love for us cannot be measured. His grace is overwhelming.
My question is how can people have no fear of the Lord, no honor and respect? Some may ask how can we show fear of the Lord, honor and respect? Here are 7 ways you can do that.
1. Do not mock God’s people.
2. Respect His holy word, the Bible.
3. Be thankful for praying people.
4. Acknowledge God is good.
5. Rebuke evil, do not embrace it.
6. Help the poor, widows, and orphans.
7. Love one another.
