18 Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him,
On those who hope for His loving kindness,
19 To deliver their soul from death
And to keep them alive in famine. Psalm 33:18-19
To fear the Lord means to reverently worship and live for Him each day. It doesn’t mean that we live in terror of the Lord because those who fear Him are those who truly have come to know His love and His grace.
Everything God does in our lives is because He loves us and wants what is best for us. There are times when He closes doors and allows difficult circumstances because He knows and understands what He is accomplishing is our lives.
He protects and watches over those who serve Him with their whole heart. It is impossible to experience all that the Lord has for us if we fail to walk in obedience to the Lord and seek Him. Those who simply treat God like some genie that they only cry out to when they want something fail to understand Him and fail to truly know Him.
The Lord has promised to meet our every need. Even in the midst of a famine the Lord would still provide our every need. He is our good Father and Shepherd. He holds all things in His hands and nothing is too difficult for Him. May we seek and cry out to Him daily. May we commit our whole heart unto Him. He is returning soon and is calling us to remove anything from our lives that would hinder our relationship with Him.
