Psalm 145: 17-20 The LORD is righteous in all his ways and loving toward all he has made. The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. He fulfills the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cry and saves them. The LORD watches over all who love him, but the wicked he will destroy.
Our righteous, loving God tells us in these verses to fear Him. This fear is best translated in our lives as awe, devotion or reverence. The result of godly ‘fear’ is rewarded by God in many ways. These verses describe a few of those rewards: love, His nearness, fulfilling of my desires, being heard, salvation, and being constantly watched over in love. To receive those rewards God tells us we have to call on Him in truth. How truthful are you in your devotion, prayers and worship of God? Are you just going through the motions or is He real to you? God promises in Hebrews 11:6 “And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.” Do you believe? Are you earnestly seeking Him? One must believe to receive the great rewards God has promised. Step out in faith today and call upon Him. He will surely answer you!
Calling on our faithful God,
