FEAR GOD

Higher Everyday TEXT: “And Abraham said, Because I thought, Surely the fear of God is not in this place; and they will slay me for my wife’s sake” (Genesis 20:11).

It is the fool who says that there is no God, and there is no fear of God in his heart. Such was the case of the Italian Dictator, Benito Amilcare Mussolini. He was born on 29 July 1883 and brought up a Catholic. Hating religion, at the age of 17, he stood and declared, “God, if you are there, strike me dead.” God did not do it immediately. He became a journalist and politician, and eventually the Prime Minister of Italy.

However, on 28 April, 1945 at the age of 61, he was summarily executed by firing squad, and his body taken to Milan and hung upside down at a service station for the public to view.

Once, Abraham found himself among the heathen. Knowing that these lawless people who had no fear of God in them would expectedly kill him to have his wife, Abraham feared and lied that Sarah was his sister. God however saved the situation. Absence of God’s fear is everywhere today. But you should fear and obey God rather than men, no matter the situation.
