I was named after this precious stone.
It is the seventh stone in the foundation of
the New Jerusalem in Heaven.
The Diamond represents God's Spirit - FEAR of GOD.
To fear God is to know how Awesome He is,
and to Love and respect Him for all that He is.
Prince Diamond Fears God Because He Loves Him with His Whole Heart.
Look at the brilliance of the diamonds in the picture above.
They remind me of the awesome brilliance of God who lives in Heaven.
When you spend time with God by Knowing Him, Reading your bible,
understanding Him, being led by Him in your life with His
will, and walking in His power and might. Then it is easy to
FEAR GOD, and want to spend all of your days in His presence.
The following Psalm written by King David is so wonderful I
want to share the whole chapter.
"The Lord is my light and my salvation�
so why should I be afraid?
The Lord is my fortress, protecting me from danger,
so why should I tremble?
When evil people come to devour me,
when my enemies and foes attack me,
they will stumble and fall.
Though a mighty army surrounds me,
my heart will not be afraid.
Even if I am attacked,
I will remain confident."
Now notice what the most important thing that David is asking for.
"The one thing I ask of the Lord�
the thing I seek most�
is to live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life,
delighting in the Lord�s perfections
and meditating in his Temple.
For he will conceal me there when troubles come;
he will hide me in his sanctuary.
He will place me out of reach on a high rock.
Then I will hold my head high
above my enemies who surround me.
At his sanctuary I will offer sacrifices with shouts of joy,
singing and praising the Lord with music."
Even though David was King with earthly power and importance,
his main desire was as pure and simple as dwelling in the
presence of God. Wow! That is wonderful, and it is what
I want more than anything else. How about you? Is it
the true desire of your heart?
The Psalm continues with a Prayer for God's help and protection.
"Hear me as I pray, O Lord.
Be merciful and answer me!
My heart has heard you say,
�Come and talk with me.�
And my heart responds,
�Lord, I am coming.�
Do not turn your back on me.
Do not reject your servant in anger.
You have always been my helper.
Don�t leave me now; don�t abandon me,
O God of my salvation!
Even if my father and mother abandon me,
the Lord will hold me close.
Teach me how to live, O Lord.
Lead me along the right path,
for my enemies are waiting for me.
Do not let me fall into their hands.
For they accuse me of things I�ve never done;
with every breath they threaten me with violence.
Yet I am confident I will see the Lord�s goodness
while I am here in the land of the living.
Wait patiently for the Lord.
Be brave and courageous.
Yes, wait patiently for the Lord."
David tells us to wait patiently for God. Sometimes it seems
that God is not doing anything, or that He is quiet. But the
bible teaches us to watch and pray. Pray about everything and
fear nothing. Remember that fear is
F - False
E - Evidence
A - Appearing
R - Real
When fear knocks on your door, let faith answer!
I know that when you rely on God you will find
more joy and peace for your everyday living.
Fear torments many people. You may fear what
other people think of you because of how you
look, dress or the words that you speak.
Because of fear, many people do not confront
the problems. Instead they spend their lives
running. God tells us to stand strong and face
our fear. Be secure in the knowledge that you
are a conqueror!
"Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him
who loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor
angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things
to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall
be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus
