The remarkable thing about fearing God is when U fear God, U fear nothing else, but if U do not fear God U fear everything else. (Oswald Chambers, 20th century Scottish evangelist)
Fearing God is a concept sometimes difficult to understand. It is true that He is almighty, all powerful, and His wrath against sin and wrong is fearful, to say the least. But, fearing God is not just being afraid; it is recognizing His awesome majesty and authority. In a faith relationship with God, there need be no dread of Him or fear of opposition to us.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom . . . is a fountain of life . . . (Proverbs 9:10; 14:27) Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind. (Ecclesiastes 12:13)
