Daily Bible Podcast Day 259 – Ezekiel 40-41, Psalm 128, Revelation 21

July 17, 2013 in Podcasts by Nathan


“Blessed are all who fear the Lord,
who walk in obedience to him.
You will eat the fruit of your labor;
blessings and prosperity will be yours.
Your wife will be like a fruitful vine
within your house;
your children will be like olive shoots
around your table.
Yes, this will be the blessing
for the man who fears the Lord.” ~Psalm 128:1-4

The Old Testament particularly advances the idea that those who fear God will be blessed in certain ways while still on earth.

Does this still apply? Does God still offer earthly blessing for those who fear Him? What does it mean to fear Him? Does it mean to actually be afraid of Him or is it more of a deep and profound respect? I am going to read up on what it means to fear God.

Father, Your word promises blessings for those who “fear” You, but I don’t think I completely understand what that means. Please speak to me as I try to learn what this means, but more than that, give me the “fear” that You want me to have through Your Spirit. I want this family blessing very much and ask that You impress on me how to obtain it.
