When I read the word this morning and meditated on this scripture…I was like…wow! I had to reread it a few times and let it get into my spirit. This is a verse you need to hide in your heart and reflect on when you are stressed about anything in your life.
Fear of the Lord is that you think God is the greatest and the most powerful being in the entire universe. Fear of the Lord means that you believe that God is so holy that He cannot stand or look upon anything unjust or sinful. Your fear of God has you in total awe and reverence for His majesty and glory. Because of your fear of the Lord you respect His total authority over your life.
“When you fear God….you give God the OK to take charge over everything in your life and you trust Him to make wise decisions for you”
Fear has a negative connotation in this world we live in…but in God’s kingdom…it is a powerful word that has our blessings attached to it. Let’s embrace this word fear and put it in its proper place in our spiritual life and receive our full provisions for our lives from the Lord.
Proverbs 14:26 He who fears the LORD has a secure fortress, and for his children it will be a refuge.
