Scripture Verse Of The Week ‘Psalm ’19 Verse 9’

psalm19

Psalm 19 Verse 9:

“The fear of the Lord is pure, enduring forever: the ordinances of the Lord are reliable and altogether righteous”

This is not a scary fear, it is a reverent fear of God awesomeness.

The fear of The Lord is not unhealthy, dysfunctional, or debilitating fear. It means appropriate respect, reverence, awe and wonder.

The reverence we have for Our Lord, will cause us to walk in His ordinances  which are more desirable than gold and sweeter than honey {V10}

No wonder He tells us: “Isaiah 55 verse 8: “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, and your ways are not My ways”.

Far above.our ways. of most likely seeking wealth and satisfaction, before anything in life.

The ‘Fear of The Lord’ involves worship of the Lord and respectful submission to His authority, in every area of life. It is this reverence of the lord, according to Proverbs, that constitutes the only sure foundation for pursuit of knowledge.

Actually when you are in the care of our loving God, we are told not to fear, and there is a great hymn that’s first verse is;

Fear Not! God is thy shield,and He thy great reward; His might has won the field,

Thy strength is in the Lord.

There is a difference between oppressive fear and reverent fear, the more you come to know Our Lord and Our Friend, the more awesome you will think He is, and your respectful, reverent fear of Him will be the beginning and the journey into knowledge, He has for you to know.

Take the time to find out more about Our Awesome Lord and Friend.

God Bless.
