In our last post, we discussed the fear of the Lord. Today’s passage helps us hone in on that even a little more. If we fear the Lord, we are blessed. We can find delight in His Word. And there are promises. I love promises from the Lord, because they are 100% true. What God says He will do, He will do. From Psalm 112:1-5 we read, “Praise the Lord.Blessed are those who fear the Lord, who find great delight in his commands. Their children will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed. Wealth and riches are in their houses, and their righteousness endures forever. Even in darkness light dawns for the upright, for those who are gracious and compassionate and righteous. Good will come to those who are generous and lend freely, who conduct their affairs with justice.”
Let’s break down these promises for those who fear the Lord and delight in His commands.
Their children will be mighty.
The generation of the righteous will be blessed.
Wealth and riches will be in their house.
Their righteousness will endure.
Light will dawn even in darkness.
Good will come to the generous and just.
God’s Word is true and as we delight in His Word and fear Him, we will experience His blessings.
And to that we can say, “Amen.”
Lord, thank You so much that we can count on Your promises. As we trust and rely on You, we are blessed.
