My King requires Holy fear to obtain wisdom

Malachi 3:16-18

 

“16Then those who feared the LORD spoke to one another, and the LORD gave attention and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before Him for those who fear the LORD and who esteem His name. 17“They will be Mine,” says the LORD of hosts, “on the day that I prepare My own possession, and I will spare them as a man spares his own son who serves him.” 18So you will again distinguish between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve Him.”   

I am amazed at the way the Lord responds to holy fear of HIMself.  We sometimes get the whole fear thing confused and misplaced in our heart and mind. Or at least I do.  Battling fear has been a very big part of my life, and HIS word echoed in my heart over and over and over…You don’t need to fear anything as long as you have a healthy fear of ME.

Psalm 111:10

    10  ”  The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom;

    A good understanding have all those who do His commandments;

    His praise endures forever.”

    Psalm 33:18

“The eyes of the Lord on those who fear HIM, those whose hope is in His unfailing love”

    Psalms 34:7

“The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him, and He delivers them.”

There are hundreds of verses that give direction to fear the Lord, or to fear not the things that come

against us. God is good and faithful, and HE knew we would struggle with fear, HE also gave us the

way to overcome it…simple instructions…fear only HIM, and trust HIM to love and keep HIS eyes on

us, and HE will take care of the rest.  I think the enemy shoots arrows of fear at us at times, to steal

our joy and peace, and just to be a distraction…but we are overcomers…Keeping GOD in HIS place

and not allowing another to take HIS place even for a minute.

Thank you my King for making us yours, for keeping a book of remembrance, keeping your eyes on

us and never sleeping..we are so very safe in your arms.  Thank you for reminding me that when the

enemy attacks, it is only because he cannot attack you, and walking in YOUR shadow, remembering

your words on fear, there is no earthly thing to fear.  Desperate for you, remembering to tremble in

your presence before jumping on your lap! Your princess, who knows you know best!
