20th June 2020: Our Daily deLIGHT~7th Day-Fear of YHVH
Fear of YHVH
Shabbat Shalom!! We look forward to gathering with the Treasured Ones today!!
When I was praying and preparing for today’s deLIGHT I was led to Psalm 103. What powerful words lie within this Psalm!! There was NO place to cut it off. Please take the time to read and marinade in the truths of these verses. It is a salve for our souls when applied to our lives.
- 1. Bless YHVH, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless His holy name.
- 2. Bless YHVH, O my soul, and forget none of His benefits;
- 3. Who pardons all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases;
- 4. Who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion;
- 5. Who satisfies your years with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle.
- 6.YHVH performs righteous deeds and judgments for all who are oppressed.
- 7. He made known His ways to Moses, His acts to the sons of Israel.
- 8.YHVH is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness.
- 9. He will not always strive with us, nor will He keep His anger forever.
- 10. He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
- 11. For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is His lovingkindness toward those who fear Him.
- 12. As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.
- 13.Just as a father has compassion on his children, so YHVH has compassion on those who fear Him.
- 14. For He Himself knows our frame; He is mindful that we are but dust.
- 15. As for man, his days are like grass; as a flower of the field, so he flourishes.
- 16. When the wind has passed over it, it is no more, and its place acknowledges it no longer.
- 17. But the lovingkindness of YHVH is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear Him, and His righteousness to children’s children,
- 18.To those who keep His covenant and remember His precepts to do them.
- 19.YHVH has established His throne in the heavens, and His sovereignty rules over all.
- 20. Bless YHVH, you His angels, mighty in strength, who perform His word, obeying the voice of His word!
- 21. Bless YHVH, all you His hosts, you who serve Him, doing His will.
- 22. Bless YHVH, all you works of His, in all places of His dominion; Bless YHVH, O my soul!
Oh the promises for those who fear YHVH!!! The outward sign of one who fears YHVH is obedience to His word. His lovingkindness and compassion are sure and everlasting to the one who is faithful to do them.
May we have a joyful Shabbat!!
