Driven by Eternity DAY 17
WHEN FEAR ISN’T BEING AFRAID
“Do not fear; for God has come to test you, and that His fear may be before you, so that you may not sin.” (Exodus 20:20)
How can we have intimacy with the Lord (which He truly desires) if we are afraid of Him? Is that really what the fear of the Lord means? (John Bevere)
The fear of the Lord is not being afraid of the Lord. It’s a fear that we will miss out on God and His great love for us in this life and the next. People who are afraid of God run from Him but, people who live in the fear of the Lord live desperate lives for God because they fear life without God. There’s a difference. One fear drives us to our knees and the other drives us to our needs to be included with man. Come and see what God has planned for our lives and pursue nothing else.
