Scripture: Exodus 1:  The midwives, however, feared God and did not do what the king of Egypt had told them to do; they let the boys live.
Observation: Most of my life was spent in fear. I feared my parents, teachers, other children, the dark, amusement rides and so much more, but never thought of God. As I grew up I was afraid of my bosses, losing my job, not having enough money and other people. Most of my life was spent in some type of fear. I didn’t think of being afraid of God so I wasn’t afraid of doing wrong things, but times have changed. I fear my God and because of that I try to do things that honor Him and not myself. I fear God because I love Him and He deserves my best so when I fear Him He is upper most in my thoughts.
Application: I need to always have that reverent fear for my heavenly Father so when I see situations I will act according to His will and not mine. I fear of doing something wrong and that’s alright because it keeps me focused on what I should be doing. I’m not afraid of my God, but I do fear Him, because He is the most important thing in my life.
Prayer: My Lord I humbly bow down before you. I may fear you , but I also trust you with everything that I am. Continue to put a fear in my spirit so that I may stay on the right path, the path that leads to you.
