“The fear of the Lord leads to life, and he who has it will abide in satisfaction; he will not be visited with evil.” (Prov. 19:23)
What a promise! Those who live in the fear of God, and always make conscience of their duty to him, have 1. Safety. 2. Satisfaction (a constant contentment in them. It is a satisfaction which will abide, whereas all the satisfactions of sense are transient and soon gone) and 3. True and complete happiness. Serious godliness has a direct tendency to life; to all good, to eternal life; it is the sure and ready way to it.
Please keep me in fear of You always, so that I may not sin against You, in Jesus’ name. Thank You, Lord.
