A Heart of Honour

This shows evidential blessings and glorious things that are associated with living in the honour of God. It also tells of certain biblical characters for better understanding of living in honour of God.

One of the objectives of this article is to understand the position of God on the matter of reverence and obedience to Him, especially His Word. This is clearly stated in these Scripture passages; “…Those who honour me I will honour, but those who despise me will be disdained.” – I Samuel 2:30b. “Do not harden your hearts as in the provocation in the day of temptation in the wilderness.” – Hebrews 3:8.

What are the components and characters of honour?

i. Living in consciousness of God’s presence, desiring and regarding His Word: We need to know that everlasting honour awaits those who honour God and His Word in this world; they will not only be honoured in this life but it will extend to the life hereafter. We saw this kind of nature in Moses, Samuel and Joshua who were always conscious of God’s presence, desiring and regarding His Word.

ii. Living in the love of God and His Word: They also have passion and genuine love for everything about God (Exodus 3-4, 33:12-17, I Samuel 3, II Samuel 2:27, Joshua 1:1-8 and 24:15).

What are the blessings associated with living in honour of God?

a. Favour of God which lies in His glory (Exodus 33:18-19, Joshua 10:12-13);

b. Mighty Exploits (Exodus 33 & Joshua 10);

c. Good Success (Joshua 1:8, I Samuel 2:30);

d. Supernatural Strength and Wisdom (Deuteronomy 34:7 & Joshua 14:11); and

e. Generational Blessing (Psalms 112:1-3).

Some Biblical Characters that dishonoured God and ended in horror.

Truly God honours His Word more than His Name, but it is absurd that many still disobey and disregard the Word of God and His sent Ministers. Among the people who fell victim of horrific end as a result of their nonchalant, obnoxious and disobedient attitude are;

i. Pharaoh and his horsemen who disobeyed God and perished in the Red Sea (Exodus 5:2, 14:27-28);

ii. Miriam who became leprous for opposing the divine leadership of Moses, God’s servant raised for His people of Israel (Numbers 12);

iii. Korah, Dathan and Abiram who were shipwrecked and swallowed by the earth mysteriously because they also opposed Moses (Numbers 16);

iv. Eli and his sons who have no regard for God which brought their lives and His plan for them to an abrupt end (I Samuel 2:12-17, 27-35, 4:11-18) and King Saul who disobeyed God and lost his kingdom (I Samuel 15);

v. Also, there were many of the Isrealites that perished in the wilderness for being hard-hearted and stiff-necked while the God-fearing ones like Joshua and Caleb made it to the Promised Land (Exodus 32:1-28). Everything boils down to the fact that these people continually and perpetually refused to honour the Word of God and to do His will. May this horrible end not be our portion in Jesus’ Name.

Concluding Remarks.

Truly, honour and horror are inevitable but those who will escape the horror of life must honour God and obey His Word always. Therefore, forsake every disobedient lifestyle to be greatly honoured and favoured in this life and hereafter. Remain blessed. Shalom!
