“The Fear Of The Lord”

“The Fear Of The Lord”

“In the…fear of the Lord there is strong confidence.” Pr 14:26 AMP

When you submit to God, you don’t have to be afraid of anything because He becomes your “refuge and strength” (Ps 46:1). Fearing God doesn’t mean being afraid He’s going to hurt you. He’s a good God! “The fear of the Lord” just means you follow His directions and recognize His authority in all things. You’ve probably noticed there’s not a lot of respect for authority these days; we’ve developed the kind of mentality that says, “Nobody’s going to tell me what to do!” But the Bible says, “In the reverent and worshipful fear of the Lord there is strong confidence.” Why does it say that? Because a reverent and worshipful fear means being respectful and obedient. It means you’ll do what God says to do, and your confidence and trust in Him will continue to grow. And you’ll notice something else that’s important: The more reverential fear and awe you have of God, the more careful and courteous you’ll be in your dealings with others. That’s because you know you’re accountable to God for your actions, and you recognize that other people are just as valuable to Him as you are. Solomon writes, “Here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments…this is the whole duty of man” (Ecc 12:13 NIV). Moses told the children of Israel, “What does the Lord your God ask of you but to fear the Lord your God…walk in all his ways…love him…serve the Lord your God with all your heart and…soul” (Dt 10:12 NIV). It’s not complicated!
