Do you want to know a secret?

The secret of the Lord is with those who fear Him, and He will show them His covenant. My eyes are ever toward the Lord, for He shall pluck my feet out of the net. Psalm 25:14-15.

In all era’s godly men and women have practiced the fear of the Lord. The Scriptures have a lot to say about the fear of the Lord.

  • It is “clean enduring forever” (Ps.19:9).
  • It can be learned (Ps.34:11).
  • It is the “beginning of wisdom” and the “beginning of knowledge” (Ps.111:10; Prov. 1:7).psalm25-14-15

Our text reveals several promises to the one who fears the Lord:

  • Guidance: “Him shall He teach in the way that He chooses” (Ps.25:12).
  • Spiritual prosperity: “He himself shall dwell in prosperity” (ps.25:13).
  • Future posterity: “his descendants shall inherit the earth” (Ps. 25:13).
  • Divine confidant: “The secret of the Lord is with them” (Ps.25:14).
  • Covenant: “He will show them His covenant” (ps.25:14).
  • Deliverance: “He shall pluck my feet out of the net” (Ps.25:15).

God reveals His secret council in close friendships, as He did to Abraham who feared the Lord (Gen. 18:17-19), and as He did to the apostles (John 15:15).

    Outstanding post, Manny.

    You have assembled so many wonderful scriptures here.

    Remember Oprah’s secret and how many were interested in that? You and I both know why that is.

    So few seem to want to know the secret you write about in this post. It is truly a sign of the times.

    God’s blessings my friend…

    The secret place is the place to be: He that dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress; My God, in Him will I trust. Psalm 91:1-2. NKJV
