1 Praise theLord! How joyful are those who fear the Lordand delight in obeying his commands.
Our fear acknowledges God’s good intentions and leads us to wisdom. It calls us to careful attention to detail and surrender. Every thought the Lord has towards you is a thought for good. He is a great and gracious Savior. Fear of the Lord includes reverence and awe and an awareness that failure to obey Him results in disastrous consequences. Our Lord is good and good to us. Fear of the Lord is the pathway to wisdom.
