WHAT DO YOU FEAR?
To fear God is to sense His awesomeness. When we acknowledge that greatness and trust in Him, we no longer want to walk in darkness but desire to walk in the light since He is Light.
Psalm 112:1 "Praise ye the LORD. Blessed is the man that feareth the LORD, that delighteth greatly in his commandments."
Proverbs 10:27 "The fear of the LORD prolongeth days: but the years of the wicked shall be shortened."
Proverbs 14:26-27 "In the fear of the LORD is strong confidence: and his children shall have a place of refuge. The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death."
It is true, you know it and I know it! What is that you may ask? Well, that is that we fear more man than Almighty God who created man. Many people go day by day thinking more on what man is going to say or do rather than thinking (if thinking at all) on what Almighty God has to say or will do in our lifes.
Matthew 10:28 "And fear not them which kill the body but are not able to kill the soul; but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and bldy in hell."
Proverbs 29:25 "The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe."
As we start this new year, let's have this resolution: "...Fear God and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man" Ecclesiastes 12:13
Psalm 128:1 "Blessed is every one that feareth the LORD; that walketh in his ways."
