Fear Of The Lord

The last two weeks have been crazily busy! We’re over half way through our lecture phase, which is so hard to believe! Oh how time flies!
 
Last week we had a lady named Mariecia Groenwald who is a part of YWAM in Perth, talk to us on the topic of Fear of The Lord. Learning that fear of the Lord is about having an intimacy, a relationship with God. When you have a relationship with God and Him alone, it doesn’t shift or change. We were born to be in a relationship with God and we will never be satisfied until he is our number 1 and God won’t let you go because He wants all of you. He wants to be close to us and he wants us to know Him. 

So when you come into a relationship with God and you’ve positioned yourself to face God. You’re automatically turning your back to sin. Being positioned towards God leads us to holiness and holiness is agreeing with God. Agreeing with God is obeying Him. You begin to pray “More of you God and less of me”. He is jealous for us as sin destroys us, so that’s why he wants us away from sin. As God hates sin and that’s what draws us further away from Him showing that we don’t fear Him at all. 

“The secret of the Lord is with those who fear Him, And He will show His covenant.”
Psalm 25:14
