Mind of Christ | October 27
Good and upright is the LORD; therefore He teaches sinners in the way.
The humble He guides in justice, and the humble He teaches His way.
Who is the man that fears the LORD? Him shall He teach in the way He chooses.
The secret of the LORD is with those who fear Him, and He will show them His covenant.
“Now therefore, go, and I will be with your mouth and teach you what you shall say.”
Psalm 25:8-9; 12, 14, Exodus 4:12
Father, You say that Your secrets are revealed to those that have a fear of the Lord. Help us know what You mean here by “fear”. We know that being afraid of Your power is a natural reaction. When you literally move the earth we are fearful. Teach us to know the difference between that kind of fear and fear that comes upon the disobedient.
Help us this day, to transition from temporal, here and now fear, to a sense of security that no matter what happens, we are Your children, promised an eternity of safety, security and goodness with You.
Give us a quiet assurance of Your presence in our hearts when it seems everything here, in this temporary place, is falling apart. Place answers in our mouth to those who need to hear our witness. In Your name we pray, amen.
