Give Him 15 is joining a 40-day national call to prayer before the 2018 Midterm Elections. Here is today’s Focus:
Day 30 – The Fear of the Lord
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, but fools despise wisdom and discipline.” (Proverbs 1:7; NIV)
Where is America headed? How my soul mourns at the absence of honor and respect for our Lord Jesus Christ and His values in our culture. The public arena has rapidly descended as the disappearance of the fear of the Lord has vaporized from the heart and mind of many, especially the highly visible and vocal. The lack of civility, loss of decorum, ill-regard for authority are signs of a society in peril, one which desires to serve self.
The need for God’s wisdom is infinite. Our nation can improve with a holy fear and reverence of God. Then – and only then – His wisdom can begin.
According to Romans 14:12, one day every soul will give an account of our lives to God, their Creator.
Points for Prayer:
Repent and ask Holy Spirit’s conviction on the populous that we may all know the existence of the Lord.
Repent and ask Holy Spirit’s conviction on the populous to revere/honor/fear the Lord.
Repent and ask Holy Spirit’s conviction on the populous to seek the Lord.
