Who, then, is this person that fears the Lord? He is the one whom the Lord will teach which path to choose. He will enjoy good things in life, and his descendants will inherit the land. The Lord advises those who fear him. He reveals to them the intent of his promise. My eyes are always on the Lord. He removes my feet from traps. Protect my life, and rescue me! Do not let me be put to shame. I have taken refuge in you. Integrity and honesty will protect me because I wait for you. (Psalm 25:12-15, 20, 21 GWT)
Many people want God’s blessings, but aren’t as concerned about their relationship with Him. When we deepen our relationship and learn to respect Him, we will know Him as He really is.
