“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.” Prov. 9:10
The fear of the Lord doesn’t mean to be afraid of God nor it means to run away from him thinking that He is the mighty creator while we are his lowly creation. Our lack of knowledge turns our fear of the Lord into a wall of separation between him and us. Fear of the Lord doesn’t mean that God, the creator and his creation stand on two different grounds.Christ came to demolish the wall of separation and by his death and resurrection, we have been seated with him in higher places. The two have become one. Where there is oneness, there is the fullness of joy and freedom and in the presence of perfect love, there is no fear.
Fear of the Lord is different from how we define fear in human terms. Fear of the Lord makes us deeply rooted in God by strengthening our relation with Him through Christ. It is to remain in the awe inspiring presence of the heavenly one. It is to come and remain in the fullness of the one who is Holy and Almighty.
Have you ever experienced the unique fullness that the presence of the Lord brings when we empty ourselves before his throne? Have you ever felt the urgency to fall down in the midst of his divine glory where there is no place for you and me but for HIM alone who is worthy of all honour and praise and glory!
In the divine anointing a child of God cries out and acknowledges his true identity in Christ. He reveals the mysteries of the gospel that have been unknown even to the one who is uttering those mysteries.
Fear of the Lord brings brokenness and fullness at the same time. Fear of the Lord fills us with a unique thirst to know our saviour and creator more and more every day. Fear of the Lord makes us whole by filling us with Godly knowledge and pure wisdom that come from above. Fear of the Lord opens our eyes to witness the divine power at work in the midst of God’s creation. Creation begin to position itself in the right place in the life of a child of God who lives in reverent fear of the most High. Mountains claps, rivers shout for joy and the ground count itself blessed to see a blessed child of God.
Those who fear the Lord know no fear. Those who remain in the presence of the Lord walk in the freedom of the spirit and know that there is liberty and equality for everyone. They love themselves as they love others. They know that being God’s unique creation, there is an obligation, that is to honour God by positioning themselves at the right place.
Fear the Lord and remain fearless in all situations!
