What Does It Mean To Fear God?

As we behold God’s majestic creation – the moon and the stars, the beautiful oceans and magnificent mountains – we are witnessing just a tiny portion of the evidence of Who He is and what He can do.

In Psalm 89, the psalmist wrote: Who in the skies is comparable to the Lord? Who among the sons of the mighty is like the Lord, a God greatly feared in the council of the holy ones, and awesome above all those who are around Him?

So,What does it mean to fear God? The word Fear – when used in connection with the Lord – means that God is to be feared because of His awesome ability, His holiness and His power. His enemies should fear Him because He is sovereign over all things. Everything and everyone are subject to Him. AMEN!

In addition, fear means reverence. God is worthy of our praise. He is to be honored above anything and everything. If we fail to give Him the glory and honor that He is due, then we will suffer disappointment and broken fellowship with our Creator, the Lord of the universe. So my question is do you Fear God?
