Family Friday: 25 Ways to Reverence God

1. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength acknowledging that Jesus said that those who love Him will obey Him.
2. Love others with God's love.
3. Yield yourself fully to Him as Lord and Master in every area of your life - holding nothing back.
4. Exalt Him far above anyone or anything else in your life. Make Him more important than anything or anyone in this world.
5. Praise Him joyfully with spoken or written words! Sing to Him with all your heart!
6. Thank Him all throughout the day.
7. Desire to know Him deeply. Feast on His Word to know Him more.
8. Trust Him! Believe Him.
9. Be still before Him in anticipation rather than rushing ahead with your own plans.
10. Reverence that He holds all power and that He reigns in sovereignty over the universe. Approach Him with this knowledge, realizing He deserves much more respect than any human king.
11. Receive that God's Word is Truth and Life. Reject every other message as false, resist the lies of the enemy, and build your life on His Truth and His Word alone! Think rightly about God, yourself, and others.

16. Delight yourself in the Lord in good times and in times of suffering, trusting Him to use the good and bad things for your ultimate good and His ultimate glory.
17. Approach Him with great humility and lowliness, realizing He is King of kings and Lord of lords and you are "made of clay."
18. Acknowledge that He is the Greatest Treasure there is. Nothing on earth can compare with Him.
19. Allow Him to transform your heart and mind to be more like Jesus.
20. Love the Body of Christ and work for the love and unity of His people.
21. Acknowledge that God's wisdom is infinitely greater than any human wisdom.
22. Seek God's approval alone, not the approval of people or the world.
23. Ask God to give you His eyes, His heart, and His mind.
24. Mediate on His Word. Memorize it.
25. Be willing to do anything He asks of you with joy just because it brings Him pleasure.
