Psalms 31:19 

May 25, 2019

Oh, how abundant is your goodness, which you have stored up for those who fear you and worked for those who take refuge in you, in the sight of the children of mankind!

The Fear of the LORD, God, the Almighty is synonymouswith the Goodness of the LORD. His bounty and provision for His own know no end.

Psalms 27:3 

May 24, 2019

Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war arise against me, yet I will be confident.

David has no reason to be afraid of an army of pagans, nor war being declared against him. Why? He trusts in the LORD Or in other words; he knows that those who fear the LORD, God, the Almighty do not need to fear the threats of man.

Psalms 27:1 

May 23, 2019

Of David. The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

My Light, my Salvation, my Stronghold; what else is needed? The stronghold brings to mind standing on the bluffs above the Mississippi River and watching the waters rage against the levees. Yes, often man's defenses failed but the Fear of the LORD cannot and will not.

Psalms 25:12-14 

May 22, 2019

Who is the man who fears the LORD? Him will he instruct in the way that he should choose. His soul shall abide in well-being, and his offspring shall inherit the land. The friendship of the LORD is for those who fear him, and he makes known to them his covenant.

Is this what Paul had in mind as he wrote 1 Corinthians 3:14-16? That it is the Fear fo the LORD, God, the Almighty that leads to both understanding of His covenant with His people, those who fear Him, and a friendship that is based upon having His mind? Is it too much to say that the Fear of the LORD leads to soul friendship with Him? Was the relationship between David and Jonathan ( 1 Samuel 18:1) a symbol of what was to come to us?

Who is the man who fears the LORD? Him will he instruct in the way that he should choose. His soul shall abide in well-being, and his offspring shall inherit the land. The friendship of the LORD is for those who fear him, and he makes known to them his covenant.

As I increase in the Fear of the LORD as the guiding theme of my life, I find that He guides me along the King's Highway. It is the coin funnel at work for growth in my walk as a disciple of Jesus Christ leads to a deeper understanding of the Fear of the LORD.

Psalms 23:4 

May 20, 2019

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

As I walk in the Fear of the LORD, God, the Almighty, I am relieved, yea, even released from the burden of the fear of evil. Satan has no hold over me as I walk per the Word of the LORD.

Psalm 119:169

May 19, 2019

Let my cry come before you, O LORD; give me understanding according to your word!

I do not understand why one of my children divorced. Yes, I know that it is Sin and a complete disavowal of Your commandments but where and how? What is my duty here? Help me, Lord, give me peace in Your plan for them, the children and for us.

Psalms 22:23-25 

May 18, 2019

You who fear the LORD, praise him! All you offspring of Jacob, glorify him, and stand in awe of him, all you offspring of Israel! For he has not despised or abhorred the affliction of the afflicted, and he has not hidden his face from him, but has heard, when he cried to him. From you comes my praise in the great congregation; my vows I will perform before those who fear him.

We are to praise Him in our assemblies, we are to lift up the Name which is above all other names. We must never forget that the object of our congregating is to worship the LORD, God, the Almighty. We are called to declare His Worth.

For he has not despised or abhorred the affliction of the afflicted, and he has not hidden his face from him, but has heard, when he cried to him. From you comes my praise in the great congregation; my vows I will perform before those who fear him.

How am I called to demonstrate the reverential Fear of the LORD, God, the Almighty? By praising Him! By declaing His worth! By searching the Creation for signs of His creativity! By recognzing the image of God is in all men!

I have been considering the grackle, a most ugly bird with a very annoying voice; it empties the feeders that have been filled with choice seed for for these flashes of color and song that fill my yard. Why the grackle, LORD? Is it to teach me that all of creation is beautiful in Your eyes? Maybe that I am called to love the unloveable?

Psalms 19:7-11 

May 16, 2019

The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul; the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple; the precepts of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes; the fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever; the rules of the LORD are true, and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, even much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and drippings of the honeycomb. Moreover, by them is your servant warned; in keeping them there is great reward.

To live within the Law of the LORD is to live in reverential Fear of the LORD, God, the Almighty; in the acknowledgement that it is complete and without flaw. As we study His Law and take it into our hearts as a way of life, we draw closer to Him and begin to discover that His creation works according to His Law.

A Psalm of David. O LORD, who shall sojourn in your tent? Who shall dwell on your holy hill? He who walks blamelessly and does what is right and speaks truth in his heart; who does not slander with his tongue and does no evil to his neighbor, nor takes up a reproach against his friend; in whose eyes a vile person is despised, but who honors those who fear the LORD; who swears to his own hurt and does not change; who does not put out his money at interest and does not take a bribe against the innocent. He who does these things shall never be moved.

Isn't this interesting. My criteria for choosing close associates has to be drawn from the pool of those who demonstrate a reverential fear of the LORD. Look at the list of behaviors. It is neither exhaustive nor absolute but is indicative of a transformed heart.

Psalms 9:19-20 

May 14, 2019

Arise, O LORD! Let not man prevail; let the nations be judged before you! Put them in fear, O LORD! Let the nations know that they are but men! Selah

Here the Hebrew word would be better translated as dread or terror.  “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.” Hebrews 10:31 Yes, there is a powerful element dread or terror, especially for those who do not acknowledge Him as a factor in their lives.
