The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, To turn one away from the snares of death. Proverbs 14:27 New King James Version
To fear the Lord in this context means to respect Him. That is very wise.
Because He loves us and only desires what is best in our lives it is best to respect His choices in our lives.
The traps of death I believe are spiritual.
So if we desire wealth or fame over Jehovahs plan for our lives we will be spiritually dead. It may look enticing to begin with but in the end you will end up being spiritually dead.
I turned away from my beloved for a couple of years and they were not enjoyable or fulfilling times.
Once I returned to Him He slowly moved me where He wanted me to be, doing what He had prepared for me to do.
Prayer: Please my love Jehovah Abba (God our father) always instill in my heart a deep love and respect for You. Always move my heart to be an obedient child of Your. I humbly ask this in the name of He who was and is Your most obedient, loving son Christ Jesus Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
