Life Comes from the Fear of the Lord

Here's another from Todd Parsons:

The fear of the Lord tends to life: he that has it shall abide satisfied; he shall not be visited with evil. -- Proverbs19:23. 

"The fear of the Lord", a man that presents himself before the presence of the Lord.  With this thought I am picturing Esther standing before the king in the book of Esther. When we present ourselves to the Lord it tends to life when we recognize that death and life are in the power of His tongue... It is in the power of His tongue more than in the power of my/our tongue, Pr.18:21. I submit to His authority. The Lord will say to the humble, "LIVE!" Here he that has it, "Life from the Lord", shall abide satisfied... Whether your shoes are Esther's or Mordecai's, you shall not be visited with evil, for no evil can stand in the presence of the Lord. There was no place found for them, Rev.19:11-15.  The Lord, will profess to have never known them and by His mouth's words they will have to depart from His presence, Mat.7:23. Evil will remain in eternal insecurity and they that stand with the Lord will abide eternally secure... Thanks be to the Lord we "are"saved and "are" His!

Some great thoughts there.  We're working on some fresh thoughts from God to post here as well as some ministry things.  Which is why we're a little behind in getting back here.  Our International Convention was great.  Had some time of fellowship with lots of missionaries and pastors.  And some seed thoughts for here.

Please continue to pray for Dana and her family, Scott, Russ, Columbia, Jimmy and Betty, Curtis, Peggy, Joyce, and Libby.  There's also Mindy.  Don't forget anyone else God lays on your heart.  There are always special people that God wants us to consider in prayer. And I'll add myself to the list, as I expand some ministry responsibilities.
