Do you fear the Lord?

Psalm 119.117

Do you fear the Lord?

“Uphold me that I may be safe, that I may have regard for Your statutes continually” [Psalm 119.117 NASB]

David longed to use all of his faculties to serve and glorify God. David desired the continued protection of God so he could consistently contemplate God's word even more.

This divine and essential act of meditation appears to have unintentionally slipped from our vocabulary and conduct.

Rather than do our own spiritual maintenance, we would rather get someone else to pray for us and zap us with the Spirit. … Instant growth and deliverance? I am not too sure.

Practically every time I read the word, I feel the need to carry the text with me and at every available opportunity, ponder its meaning. Do you also do this?

Once again, David's life was in danger and he asked God for two specific requests. It is possible that the strengthening that David needed was first and foremost for his mind, and once rest and reprieve had been granted here, normal service would be resumed as soon as possible.

David was a thorough disciplinarian and once the enemy was defeated and banished, he stayed out.

Is your attention being diverted from concentrating on the word? Why is this happening to you at this particular time?

It is possible that the enemy senses something being birthed in the spirit realm and he wants to divert your attention and will from being a partaker to that of a spectator.

What could it be? In a few verses from here, God revealed to David what it really meant to fear the Lord [Psalm 119.120].

However, not everyone will enjoy the sweet companionship of the Lord; but to those who take His word with them, He will reveal to them its deep, inner meaning [Psalm 25.14 Amplified]. [David McArdle]
