  • Pure and endures forever
  • Knowledge loving
  • Instruction loving
  • Knowledge of God and understanding
  • A fountain of life to escape the snares of death

Now I have to ask myself, do I fear the Lord as I should? Do I become overwhelmed with His awesomeness? Am I astounded by Him? Am I awed as to Who He is? Is He truly the top love of my life? Do my actions prove that I have a proper fear of Him? Do my words and actions bear evidence that I truly acknowledge who He is? Is my life lining up with His desires? May it be so!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m8Qby8TKLME&t=3s

Dear Father may my life bear evidence that I love You and have the proper fear of You. Thank You that this is not a cowering fear, but a fear that desires to imitate You, be a pattern after You. May I do so in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus.   So be it!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EePCIVJLIbk
