Fear of God Devotional: Evidences of Lack of Fear of God

Are you too busy for God?

Clarence Simmons explains in this video that tragically, Christians commonly neglect to read the Word of God and spend time in prayer. Failing to consistently read Scripture and spend time in prayer causes us to grow farther away from God and take steps backward in our walk of sanctification. Such individuals often have a very small view of God, lack a strong fear of God, and tend not to take the Word of God seriously.

There is no growth of a saved individual apart from the Word of God and spending time with Him – in fact, it is impossible. Spending time in prayer and reading God’s Word is absolutely critical to knowing God. Do you prioritize Scripture reading and prayer each day?

Matthew 26:41 (NKJV) – “Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”
