Do You Experience this as well?
To fear the LORD is to hate evil; I hate pride and arrogance, evil behavior and perverse speech. Proverbs 8:13, New International Version
To “fear the Lord” means to respect Him. When you love and respect Him you will love what He loves and hate what He hates.
Do you hate it when you are in the presence of people who are full of themselves? Ohhh they are sooo good. Truth be told it is not they that are good it is Gods gift to them that allows them to excel in whatever they are so full of themselves about. Perhaps more professional athletes, singers and actors should remember this. Any and all talent you have is not of your own doing, it is a gift from God.
Does being around haughty people make you feel nauseous? You know the type, oh I have so much more money than you, I am so much prettier than you. My nationality is so much better than yours. You are so inferior to me.
Are you disgusted when you hear others brag about the weekend’s last drunken party or the guy or girl they scored for a night? Does it annoy you to hear others brag about how they cheated someone or a business? Can you think of other offensive behavior you find offensive?
Does hearing someone using potty talk (vulgar language) make you wish you had a bar of soap to wash their mouths out with? Does listening to filthy jokes make you wish you were temporarily deaf? How about the rubbish they try to pass of as music today? That’s why I like to listen to good music like on Praise1065 and Joyfm on the internet. It’s positive, clean and very enjoyable.
If these revolting situations disgust you, congratulations, it means you are close to Him.
Prayer: Please Jehovah Shammah (The Lord is present) please guide my words and actions today that not only will they bring you praise and glory, but, that they will be beacons that guide others to You. In the name of the greatest example of Christian behavior Jesus Christ we pray. Amen
May the sweet sunshine of Jesus’ love bless you today and every day
