Date

April 26, 2020


Summary

YLD message summary on Apr 26:

Grow in the Fear of the Lord

Recap: Last two weeks, we talk about fears in our lives.

  • The fear of the Lord is the beginning of the wisdom
    • Fear of the Lord is to do what God requires of you
    • Fear of the Lord is to hate evil

“The remarkable thing about God is that when you fear God, you fear nothing else, whereas if you do not fear God, you fear everything else.” Oswald Chambers

God has plan for you: no need to fear

  • For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11)

Aware the presence of God is everywhere – God is in the room

  • God is there to change us and to help us, in Him, we can experience a new way to live
  • Fear of the Lord is to hate evil: evil is inside of you
    • Tongue is a small part of your body: a restless evil, full of deadly poison
    • The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, set the whole course of one’s life on fire. (James 3:6)
  • Jealousy: Joshua got upset due to jealousy in his heart
    • The story begins in Numbers 11:24 – 30.
    • Joshua wants his mentor, Moses to be the only one who offers spiritual leadership.
    • Jealous that God has placed his gifts on some others,
    • Jealousy limits our focus to ourselves and our desires. The plan is in God’s hand.
    • Moses is aware that God is in the room – With God’s presence and His help, we can be transformed and changed by God, because God is good
    • God has kept each one’s lot secure. No one can replace you. God has a plan for you, plans to give you hope and future

Let’s continue to grow in the fear of the Lord
