The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him, and delivers them. Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who trusts in Him! Oh, fear the Lord, you His saints! There is no want to those who fear Him. The young lions lack and suffer hunger; but those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing.
David tells us three things that must be present in our relationship with our Creator: fear of God, trust in Him and seek His presence. The Bible says that David was a man after God’s heart; therefore David observations indicate how he acted in his relationship with God, which pleased the Almighty. It is therefore important to consider and emulate what David did to align ourselves with God in His heart. David said that the Angel of Jehovah is going camping all around those who fear God and give them defense and protection. H also tells us that it is good to trust in the Lord because the man who does so is happy. About the fear of God, David also says that along with seeking His presence, we guarantee that there will lack nothing.
The Scriptures indicate the following about the fear of God: It’s the trust (Job 4:6); It is the beginning of wisdom (Psalm 111:10); is to hate evil (Proverbs 8:13); It prolongs life (Proverbs 10:27); It is a fountain of life (Proverbs 14:27); It is the instruction of wisdom (Proverbs 15:33); It makes men depart from evil (Proverbios16:6); It is for life (Proverbs 19:23); Its remuneration are riches, honor and life (Proverbs 22: 4); It will be your treasure (Isaiah 33:6); and It perfects holiness (2 Corinthians 7:1).
On trust in God, the Bible states: It is to obey His commandments (Psalm 78:7); It is our strength, shield and salvation (2 Samuel 22:3); It is our rock, castle and liberator (Psalm 18:2); It is our hope (Psalm 91:2); God keeps mercy and judgment (Hosea 12:6); We are happy (Psalm 40:4); God is our refuge (Psalm 94:22); God preserves our feet to be prisoners (Proverbs 3:23); We are blessed (Jeremiah 17:7); and God frees us (Jeremiah 39:18).
We seek God’s presence: to commit our cause to Him (Job 5:8); because we long to meet Him (Psalm 6:31); to dwell in His house (Psalm 27:4); to see His face (Psalm 27:8); and to implore His favor (Zechariah 8:22).
We must bear in mind that we will benefit most from seeking intimacy with God. Without us remember that God remains God; but we are nothing without Him. When we realize that a good relationship with God is something vital and fundamental to every human being, we will not see as a nuisance spend a day time who loved us so much that He gave His Son to die on a cross to give us option to be saved. Do not be disrespectful to God, but we have to fear Him and we’ll be wise. Trust Him for His faithfulness and seek His presence as essential. God bless you.
