The fear of God

Often times it is our fears that get the greatest amount of attention from our hearts and minds.  Fear, with its debilitating influence should not be given the first place in our lives.    If we can know God and His presence in our lives we can have the balance restored and fear Him and not fear all the earthly aspects of life.
God is the only one we should fear.  This is one fear that we are supposed to have.

Proverbs 14:26 He who fears the LORD has a secure fortress, and for his children it will be a refuge.

One of the alarming aspects we see in the world today is a lack of the fear of God.  Humanity begins to think that it is a law unto itself and does exactly as it pleases.
Never leave God out of the equation!

Luke 12:4-5 Dear friends, don’t be afraid of these who want to murder you. They can only kill the body; they have no power over your souls.But I’ll tell you whom to fear—fear God who has the power to kill and then cast into hell.

Remember, that this is Jesus speaking.  He tells us not to fear those who can destroy our bodies. If we are going to fear, we should rather fear God. The fear of man and what man can do to us is a dominant fear in society. And the fear of God seems to declining. This is dangerous and should not be the case.
