Proverbs 22:4 — Respecting the Lord and not being proud will bring you wealth, honor and life.
Fear and respect go hand in hand. You should fear Me because I am Almighty God and I follow through on My promises, both good and bad. I am also deserving of your respect because of who I am and because you love and care about Me.
Seek and ask for My wisdom. Wisdom is at the heart of My Spirit, with it you’ll understand how you can do nothing on your own apart from Me. Everything you have, I have done for you and given you… Nothing have you accomplished on your own.
Pray to keep your heart and pride in check. It’s a battle of your will. Even Moses My faithful servant made this mistake. One momentary lapse caused him not to enter into the promised land. And he was with Me and in My very Presence… how much harder this will be for you, however, there are no excuses.
You must keep Me central in your life, pray through every moment and be quick to correct yourself. This will bring you wealth, honor and life. You can accomplish this because of who I am in you.
