The Fear Of The Lord
"Praise the Lord.
Blessed is the man who fears the Lord,
who finds great delight in His commands.
His children will be mighty in the land;
each generation of the upright will be blessed.
Wealth and riches are in his house,
and his righteousness endures forever.
Even in the darkness, light dawns for the upright,
for the gracious and compassionate and righteous
God will come to him who is generous and lends
who conducts his affairs with justice.
Surely he will never be shaken;
a righteous man will be remembered forever."
Psalm 112: 1-6
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. When we see the Lord in His awesome power and might, we are filled with reverential awe and fear of Him who created the vast universe which knows no limit. Wisdom, power, love, riches and glory await those who have a reverential fear of the Lord.
