THEME: WISDOM FROM GOD
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; A good understanding have all those who do His commandments. His praise endures forever.”
-The fear of the Lord is reverential fear, that causes us to respect God. The fear of the Lord is a spirit imparted in us by the Holy Spirit that makes us to revere God and keep His commandments. It is from a person’s heart, that evil thoughts come, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. All these evils come from inside and defile a person (Mark 7:21-23). King David realized this and when he committed adultery with Bathsheba, he asked God to create in him a clean heart. It is the heart that conceives evil thoughts, but since we have been justified by the blood of Jesus we are called to fear the Lord and repent our sins. It is through the wisdom of God that we hear His word and do His will. By this we are likened to a builder who built his house on a rock, and when the storm came, the house remained stable. God’s grace is sufficient for each one of us, His grace to even keep His commandments that have been founded on love, and do His will.
Cleanse us with Your precious blood dear Jesus, and make us clean. Wash us and we will be whiter than snow. Blot out our transgressions together with our family members, forefathers, leaders and our entire nation, and remember them no more. Let us hear joy and gladness, and rejoice in You Lord. Create in us pure hearts, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within us. Do not cast us from Your presence and do not take Your Holy Spirit from us. Restore to us the joy of Your salvation and grant us a willing spirit, to sustain us, and we will teach transgressors Your ways, so that sinners will turn back to You. Your grace is sufficient for us, for Your power is made perfect in weakness Jesus. Strengthen us and help us, uphold us with Your righteous right hand we humbly implore You. Enlighten our paths when we go astray and lead us in Your ancient paths. Be with all the youth who go astray with drug addiction, sexual immorality, disobedience to their parents, that they may hear Your word and do Your will. Restore all the street families and children living in the streets to You dear Jesus and lead them in their destinies. May Your abundant grace sustain us during these evil times that we may be renewed every day and focus our eyes on You and walk through Your path of everlasting life; always. Give us wise and discerning hearts that we may only do Your will. Fill us with the spirit of the fear of the Lord that we may always do Your will. Mold our hearts in the form that best represents Your love Jesus. Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lead us not into temptations but deliver us from all evil. For thine is thy kingdom, the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen
