Hearing and Learning

“Gather the people together. . . that they may hear and that they may learn to fear the Lord your God and carefully observe all the words of this law . . .” Deuteronomy 31:12

Moses’ days as a go between for God and His people were almost at an end. They would have to listen and learn to fear the Lord their God themselves.

O Father, thank You for making Your word available to me daily, lest I forget and lose my fear and awe of You. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Healthy Fear

So much to read
so little time

yet I think God has
something else in mind

for me to focus on
His word while I’m here

so I can live out my days
with a healthy awe and fear.


  1. Hi Debbie,

    It’s like what Paul said, “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of Christ.” Romans 10:17…. God’s word is eternal… What He taught the people in Moses’ day was still true in the New Testament times and today….


  2. Thank you, Deb

    “O Father, thank You for making Your word available to me daily, lest I forget and lose my fear and awe of You. ”
    I so pray.

    I’ve been reading your contributions from J for a while and Jim’s Cairo post on Linda’s Tuesday Three just threw me for a loop. I felt guilty knowing all the literature and resources I have access to that I never use but thankful that the Holy Spirit brings conviction, not condemnation.

    Thank you for being His instrument to me today Deb. I am so learning to zone in on what He wants from me.


  3. Thank you so much for the Romans scripture! That does go great with this. πŸ™‚
    God bless you for sharing God’s eternal word with us!
    love you!

  4. it is literally impossible for me to read you without learning something. It’s equally is impossible for me to read you without smiling. and those Israelites – so wayward – so rebellious – so forgetful. They got into the promised land and the first generation did fine – for the most part. But that second one, living on borrowed faith – well…

    Deb – a healthy fear– and we and respect of God– perfect – and needed – and thank you. I heart your words. Have I told you recently how glad I am that you read me and how happy it makes me when I read you? God bless and keep you and yours, my friend.

  5. Ann, you always bless me and help me stay in the “Jesus zone”. πŸ™‚ You are so sincere and desiring of Him. It just shows. God bless you and your hunger for Him.

  6. I feel I can relate so well with those Israelites . . .and have compassion that way. πŸ™‚ You study a lot Craig . . .you stay in His word. And that comes through you every time you write. God bless you and thank you for being so nice! πŸ™‚ (God is nice and so are you!)

  7. “a ‘healthy’ awe and fear”…that is something I have been asking the Lord for when I pray for a very long time. I am so glad it is considered one of those “petitions according to His will”.

    And I am so glad He is still a God that gathers. πŸ™‚

    Thank you for this reminder to to never underestimate the importance of reading the word.


  8. I think that I am so vulnerable to losing that healthy fear and awe. So much else to read, to watch, to do, to pray. That you pray for that awakens me more. πŸ™‚ God bless you as you stay in His word! love you!

  9. “…gather the people together…”
    When I read that Scripture verse I think of gathering together in church. I wish more people realized the significance of attending church on a regular basis, and not just once or twice a year at Christmas or Easter. I was raised that way, and I was never able to “carefully observe all the words of this law” until I faithfully attended church services and consistently studied my Beloved Bible.

    By the way, I understand it is not possible for many people to attend church; even I was home-bound for extended periods after multiple back surgeries. I am referring to people who shun the church.

    Thank you, Deb, for bringing such an important message to us. God bless you and Bee well, my friend. Hope I wasn’t too controversial! Love, Bee

  10. You aren’t being controversial at all . . .well, at least to me. haha! I love what you were saying and agree that it is really hard to observe what we’re suppose to if we aren’t hearing it and reading it. And doing it together as a people . . .there is something precious in that. πŸ™‚
    Praying for you, that you don’t have to face extended periods away from gathering together because of your back.
    love and gently hugs!

  12. Congratulations on being showcased by Linda Kruschke on her “My Tuesday Three” blog post. You are awesome! Love, Bee πŸ™‚

  13. Oh Bee . . .you are like my own personal cheerleader! haha! I don’t deserve you, but I’m sure thankful that God brought you to me anyway! πŸ™‚ Now you have me smiling again. God bless you!
    love, your deb
