'Fear the LORD and depart from evil'


Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and depart from evil. It will be health to your body, and strength to your bones. Proverbs 3:7-8

We so often feel we know better than the LORD God and what He has revealed in His Word. But the Scriptures admonish us not to be wise in our own eyes but, rather, to fear and respect the LORD God, listen to His Word, and repent of the sin and evil in our lives and seek God’s forgiveness in the cross of Jesus. That will bring health to our bodies and strength to our bones.

O LORD, Your Word is right and I am wrong. Pardon my sin for the sake of Christ Jesus and His sacrifice on the cross and lead me to walk in accord with Your holy Word. Amen.
