Psalm and Praise, Day 128

Fear the Lord and obey Him. Read Psalm chapter 128.

When we think about what it means to be blessed by the Lord, we must understand that it includes two things. We are to fear the Lord and reverence him, and the second is we must obey him. We do not obey the Lord because we are trying to earn his favor. We obey him because we reverence, love, and respect him.

Our obedience is born from our desire to show him our love for him. We can never earn his love so that should not be a motivating factor for obedience. This also means that if we don’t obey him, he doesn’t stop loving us.

Are we seeking to show the Lord how much we love him by obeying what he has told us to do today?
