Those that fear God – Ps. 119:79

Let those that fear thee turn unto me, and those that have known thy testimonies.
Ps. 119:79

Who do you want to have come visit you? Who would you like to have be your friends? Reading tonight, I came across this verse, which has somewhat stood out to me for awhile. As the author of this Psalm, I want people that fear God to turn to me, to stop off in their way of life to see me, to be my friends, along with people that “have known” God’s testimonies. They are people who have seen God work in their lives, who know that God is real.

Speaking with a friend tonight, it again came clear how foreign we are to the world sometimes! I told this friend that God is as real as she and I are, even though we can’t at the moment see Him. However, as the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, the first step in training children is not to cram their heads with knowledge, but rather teach them that God is watching.

Is God real to you? What has He done in your life, or in the lives of others? Let’s go tell others! He sends rain on the evil and the good – one thing God has done for me is to save me! Though not a miracle by the world’s definition… it takes something supernatural to save us from our sins, for nothing and no-one natural is able to do so!

Let’s keep good company, company with whom we can praise and bless our God, and then get out of our little comfort group, and tell others.
