Fear of God

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. Proverbs 9:10

Do you fear God? Many people call themselves “God-fearing” people ,but do they really understand the Hebrew meaning of the translated word fear?

The original Hebrew word is “Yirah” means Awesomeness and Reverence

So when we understand the “awesomeness” of God , who created the Heaven and Earth, then we truly understand his wisdom and knowledge is beyond our human comprehension.

How can we comprehend the one who is beyond time and space, who spoke us and everything into existence?

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love. (1 John 4:18)

Perfect Love (God) casts out all fear. God is perfect and through his Son he gave us perfect love. He gave us salvation. Because of the “Perfect Love” of God we can overcome death through Jesus Christ. There is no need to fear with God.

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind 2 Timothy 1:7 (KJV)

Do you live in a constant state of fear? This is not the true Spirit of God. God has given us the Holy Spirit which brings peace, love, and joy. You don’t have to fear your Heavenly Father, before you were formed he knew you and set you apart.

Stand in the awesomeness of “The Great I AM”, once you understand what our Father and Creator has done for us, then you can truly understand Perfect Love and not Fear!
