Imagine how I felt when I read this:
"Brother Jeff, please pray for me and my family. I need healing for a very painful back injury. I hurt all over, but I can still walk. The doctor explained that one of my vertebrae is degenerated, it's bad. I really need a miracle from the Lord. My husband is also suffering. He has been immobilized with excruciating back pain for over a month now. Our son has also experienced misfortune. During his final week of college, right before graduating, he was involved in a serious car accident and suffered a concussion which is now causing very painful headaches. My family is under attack by the enemy. Please help us. I don't even know if we will be able to work again. I feel as if my life is spiraling out of control. Please pray for us. We really need it!"
There is one key spoken from the mouth of the Lord that saves us all from terror, threat, financial misfortune, sickness, accidents, and all forms of calamity. Additionally, it blesses us, restores us back to health, extends our lifespan, gives us peace, and acts as an eternal defense. It is the fear of the Lord.
Read for yourself a few powerful lines from the Bible about what the fear of the Lord does for you:
Oh, how great is Your goodness, Which You have laid up for those who fear You, Which You have prepared for those who trust in You In the presence of.
Praise the LORD. Blessed are those who fear the LORD, who find great delight in his commands.
He will bless those who fear the LORD, both small and great.
The fear of the Lord prolongs days, But the years of the wicked will be shortened.
Happy is the man who is always reverent, But he who hardens his heart will fall into calamity.
The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them.
Humility is the fear of the LORD; its wages are riches and honor and life.
The Bible mentions the fear of the Lord nearly 300 times. In the Bible it is a topic that identifies a person to be of God, or not. God's word is very clear about the subject. If a person practices the fear of the Lord they are healed, protected, enter into supernatural providence, experience good health, their lifespan is extended, and they are blessed with wealth and honor.
Do you need a miracle? Do need to move to another level in life? Do need to get out of difficulty? Then check your daily habits. It could be that you haven't adopted healthy biblical habits.
The instruction to fear God is often accompanied by faithfully keeping His commandments (learn: The Commandments of Jesus), loving God, and trusting Him. The best practice anyone can adopt is meditating on God's word everyday and remaining in His presence with humility and awe (the fear of the Lord).
This practice will not only elevate your heart, soul, and mind with God's heavenly presence, but it will allow God to adorn your life in many ways which brings abundant love, life, health, peace, and happiness.
The Fear of The Lord Christian Meditation: Learn Here
If you obey the commandments of Jesus, many of which are focused on love, continuously meditate on God's word so it becomes the natural thought of your mind, and humble yourself before God everyday, your life will change.
Jesus states it like this:
Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me.
If you become of like mind with Jesus through the study and meditation of His word, you will be able to serve in His presence. If you follow this instruction you will be blessed by God, the Father.
Furthermore, a person cannot serve God, or receive God's increased presence, unless he or she displays sincere humility toward God, or the fear of the Lord. Without the fear of the Lord we cannot enter into the grace of God that manifests protective powers into our life.
My advice to the family who emailed me was this:
"We are so honored to pray for you, and are taking your petition to God's altar. Before the sun rises, and where His angels meet, we will be there for you.
As we pray for you, during the next few days consider humbling yourself to our all-powerful and mighty God who has supernatural dominion over everyone's life. Read and pray God's word everyday. By doing this, together we can magnify your prayer for health, healing, and prosperity."
I'm happy to say, during our prayer session for this family we experienced tremendous spiritual power. We haven't received a reply yet, but I know things moved in the spiritual realm for them.
None of us here at ChristAudio proclaim to know everything, but we do proclaim that God's word is true, infallible, and divinely inspired. We also believe that having faith and moving through life with sound biblical instruction is how miracles happen all the time.
So if you need help from God maybe now is the time to open His word, study, meditate, and humbly come before God everyday. Who knows, you just might encounter a spectacular God!
We love you. God bless you. We're praying for you. See you in the kingdom.
