“…in the fear of the Lord there is strong confidence, And His children will have a place of refuge. The fear of the Lord is a fountain of life, to turn one away from the snares of death…” —Proverbs 14:26-27 (NKJV)

Many believe that God exists, but only very few have the fear of the Lord in them. It is important to know that it is not enough to acknowledge that God exists, you must also have reverence (fear) for Him and His wondrous works. So, I ask you, how much fear do you have for God? Are you one of those who believe God exists but does not have reverence for Him? Are you one of those who say anything about God and His works and does not really care that they are speaking to God? Are you one of those, who have a very bad notion about God and think that God is unjust or partial? Well, you must be careful because He is God. You must remember that God is not one to mock. God is not one to whom we say anything against; think any evil thoughts against, because He is the Almighty, the all-powerful and ever-living God. He is the ancient of days and the only wise God. The keeper of time, keeper of men and the author of life, He is the only merciful and compassionate God whose love for His children has no boundaries. He is the compassionate Father who is not willing for even the wicked to perish but turn from their wicked ways. He is the one who has no past, no today or tomorrow but lives in eternity. He is the one to whom righteousness is ascribed and He is righteousness.

He is the one by whose breath ice is given, and the broad waters are frozen. He is excellent in power, in judgment and abundant justice. He is my father and your father and must be revered. We should have fear and reverence for the Lord because he who has the fear of the Lord is preserved in all things and can never be oppressed in life. The Bible lets us know that “…the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and knowledge of the Holy one is understanding…” Proverbs 9:10. When you have the fear of the Lord, you walk in wisdom and what does wisdom do? It multiplies your days and causes the years of life to be added to you (Proverb 9:11). Beloved it is important to walk in the fear of the Lord, don’t only believe that God exists but have reverential awe for Him and follow Him according to His terms and not your terms. Because the fear of the Lord will not only preserve you, it will speak for you in every area of your life and deliver you from all negative circumstances because it is written that, “the angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him and delivers them (Psalms 34:7). So fear the Lord, you His saints (Psalms 34:9) for it will preserve and provide for you. Praise God!


God is not one to mock or to make fun of, He is to be feared.


Dear Heavenly Father, you are the Highest God and the all-powerful and ever-living God. The one who is not appointed or elected but yet is God. I praise you father and I say Holy, Holy, Holy; is your name oh Father. I will reverence and worship you all the days of my life in Jesus name. Amen!
