An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

Fear Factor

(Pro 2:5 KJV) Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God.

“Fear” (3374) gets mixed reviews.  There is a lot of political turmoil going on right now and believers keep reminding themselves that they are to fear not.  At the same time Proverbs keeps telling us to fear the Lord.  It is one of those decisions that can be healthy or crippling depending on the target and the reason.  If we are unrighteous the fear that we have for the Lord is totally different than the upright.  

We tend to fear the things that God is in charge of.  Hurricanes and earthquakes drive some people up a wall.  Death is nothing but terror for billions.  Tomorrow is a reason for sleeping late.

So?  Do your homework.  Embrace your fear by embracing your Lord.
