Australia Kneels : Week 2 – Day 2

How Do I Receive God’s Promises?

Chef’s Menu For Today

Dr Hilary Moroney – Canberra House of Prayer

In Genesis 6:7-12 we see that God was deeply regretting that He made man, that everyone was corrupt, and things seemed absolutely hopeless at the time.

BUT: Noah found Grace in the eyes of God…

Let’s listen now how God Brought Back HOPE for the earth and all of creation.

 

 

 

 

Why not read Genesis chapters 6 to 9 now for yourself, and journal any new insights you discover…

Ps Jeff’s Special Today: “The Reverent Fear of the Lord” 

You might have looked at this earlier in this “strongholds removed” series, but regularly this is a VITAL place where any residue of a residue of a stronghold against such reverence needs to be removed. You and I know that rebellion is “as the sin of witchcraft.” (1 Samuel 15:23), and “an evil man seeks only rebellion” (Proverbs 17:11). Rebellion is very alive in those preaching false, humanistic philosophies prevalent in our “church” today. They are marked for condemnation (Jude 4), and will perish as those in the rebellion of Korah (Jude 11).

Here is a powerful, excellent analysis of this healthy, proper “reverent fear of the Lord” by our dear sister Jane Snyder. Please checkout her website and donate to her excellent ministry:

 

MELCHIZEDEK’S TREASURE

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 

 

Join me to Repent to restore the reverential fear of the Lord.

Psalm 2:11; Psalm 34:4; Psalm 34: 9

 I want to delve into this Repentance command. I hope to publish a repentance theme each Sunday of Lent. I am starting with a BIG one. This is one that God takes note of and can turn your life, a community, and even a country.

 Repent to restore the reverential fear of the Lord.

Why should we repent?

We must first repent of our failure to comply. You might argue that this is about restoration. But we can see that there is no restoration of the “fear of the Lord” without repenting of our failure to see why we are self-indulgent, putting our trust in our own thoughts and ways based upon our own opinions.

“Help me to rely upon YOU and hold Your values. I repent of my misplaced trust immediately.”

 To acquire understanding, let’s look at the reward so we know where we are headed.

This is the reward of those operating in the fear of the Lord:

 

A Book of Remembrance.

“Then those who feared the Lord spoke to one another, And the Lord listened and heard them; So a book of remembrance was written before Him For those who fear the Lord And who meditate on His name.” Malachi 3:16

 Next, we should look at why our hearts do not care about fearing God.

“O Lord, why have You made us stray from Your ways, and hardened our heart from Your fear?” Is 63:17

The answer to this question is simply “sin”. We must repent of it. If you are unaware of having a hard heart toward the Lord, then simply ask God to show you. He is happy to do so hoping for your repentance.

 

“Lord, I repent of each sinful thought and action that you show me. I am listening and realizing. Please forgive me and set me straight.”

 

Would you like to understand the “fear of the Lord”?

This next verse shows that effort is involved called seeking and searching.

 

“If you seek her as silver,

And search for her as for hidden treasures;

Then you will understand the fear of the Lord,

And find the knowledge of God.

For the Lord gives wisdom;

From His mouth come knowledge and understanding;” Prov. 2:4-6

 

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.” Prov. 1:7.   

 

My Repentance 

Am I a fool? Lord, forgive me for leaving you out of my life and decisions. I need to fear You, because I want to please you. I long for your presence and guidance and I cannot go forward without Your knowledge.

 “And to man He said, ‘Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom, And to depart from evil is understanding.” Job 28:28

 

“Therefore, you shall

1. keep the commandments of the Lord your God,

2. to walk in His ways and

3. to fear Him.” Deut.8:6

“But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear Him, And His righteousness to children’s children,” Ps 103:17

~~~~~~~

 

Now……Let’s repent.

Heavenly Father, I come to You today to repent from my selfish thoughts and ways.

I am truly sorry for leaving You out. I want You.

Please forgive me and help me to change my ways.

Please remind me to bring You into everything in my life, especially those things that I am emotional about (hate?) and care about (love? Idolize?).

Give me a forgiving heart and one that does not entertain offense.

I repent of not loving my enemies as you said to do.

I repent that my heart is so cold. Change it, please.

Help me to agree with Your values and standards and to keep them.

 

“This became known both to all Jews and Greeks dwelling in Ephesus; and fear fell on them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was magnified.” recorded in Acts 19.17

May your fear fall upon us today just as it did 2000 years ago.

 

May You once again show Your people Jesus’ power and glory through His most terrible death as the sacrificed Lamb.

Show us how to fear You Father, as Jesus showed in the Garden of Gethsemane when He demonstrated the fear of You saying, 

“Not my will but thine be done.” Amen

 

THE RESULT:

Then the churches throughout all Judea, Galilee, and Samaria had peace and were edified. And walking in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, they were multiplied. Acts 9:31

 

THE BLESSING

May the reverential fear of the Lord be restored in His Bride.

NKJV all quotes

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 

 

God bless you as you seek His Holy Spirit Wisdom on this vital issue. May you go forward on His path, “perfecting holiness in the fear of God.” (2 Corinthians 7:1).

Better the little that the righteous have than the wealth of many wicked; for the power of the wicked will be broken, but the LORD upholds the righteous.
