    Do you fear the Creator?


    When we speak about the Creator, our lean is to take into account only His love. It is truth that He is love (1John 4:8,16). Nevertheless, He is justice.


    And what is justice? It is something that is just, that is to say, not wide, spacious, but exactly what the person needs. Take a look at this:


    · Exo 23:29 -> “I will not drive them out from before thee in one year; lest the land become desolate, and the beast of the field multiply against thee.”.

    · Deu 7:22 -> “And the LORD thy God will put out those nations before thee by little and little: thou mayest not consume them at once, lest the beasts of the field increase upon thee.”.


    The Creator could oust all the enemies at once and protect Israel in a supernatural way. However, He opted for keep the enemies alive so that they could serve as limit for Israel.


    Unfortunately, the human being yearns for more than they need. From this moment, it arouses the perversity and, of course, the despise for the Creator and His ways:


    · Pro 14:2 -> “He that walketh in his uprightness feareth the LORD: but he that is perverse in his ways despiseth him.”


    Thereby, they are turning down the alliance of life and peace of the Creator:


    · Mal 2:5 -> “My covenant was with him of life and peace; and I gave them to him for the fear wherewith he feared me, and was afraid before my name.”.


    This alliance is exclusive for those who fear Him.


    If each one would stop of looking forward to possessing what belongs to the neighbor and be grateful for what the Creator imparted to them, everybody would be relish in the fear of the Creator, without considering His laws as something hard (1John 5:3).


    So, if your enemy squeeze you, don’t repine. Have a joyful day fearing the Creator and giving thanks for this (1Thess 5:16-18) because certainly these enemies are the instrument of the Creator to protect you against a worst evil and limit you to the place which belongs to you, where you will be a blessing in His hands.
