How does God keep everyone’s life straight? Well, He’s God, right? He sees all things at all times and He even looks into the deepest heart of each one of us. His Word gives us a clue as to what He is hoping to find there.
Psalm 25:12 says; “Who is the man that fears the Lord? Him shall he teach in the way he chooses. He himself shall dwell in prosperity, and his descendants shall inherit the earth.” Fear is a key but it isn’t the kind of fear we usually think of. When we fear the Lord it means we have a feeling of profound respect mingled with affection and awe.
That kind of fear activates God as teacher in our life with a very powerful outcome. To the one who fears Him, God prepares lessons designed just for us – He decides what we need to learn and when. HE chooses. It’s like having a personal tutor. By being in His classroom, we have a great advantage.
Instead of marking our papers with A’s as we submit to His instruction, He fills our life with prosperity. He causes our descendants to inherit the earth. What could be better than that?
But that’s not all. “The secret of the Lord is with those who fear Him, and He will show them His covenant.” (Verse 14) God has some secrets to share with us if we will only fear Him. Open registration for God’s classroom starts today. Care to sign up?
