The Fear of the Lord

God’s desire is to speak to us in many ways – Isaiah and Revelations speak of the seven-fold Spirit of God. The last of these aspects or facets of the way He relates to us is through the Fear of the Lord. Fear from the Biblical word in Hebrew is a form of respect, awe, honor, consideration.

There’s always a mountain to climb, just make sure it’s the right one BEFORE you get to the top.

That’s OK to a point but when that becomes the end goal, we lose sight of WHY we’re trying to be better. What hole are we trying to fill by achieving that ‘something’ be it a title, a number, or a thing? Continue reading “God’s Definition of Success”
