PRAISE HIM IN THE FEAR OF THE LORD

Then a voice came from the throne, saying, "Praise our God, all you His servants and those who fear Him, both small and great!" - Revelation 19:5

It is important to know that the fear of God is entirely different from being afraid of God. The fear of God has three basic components:

* To Know Him
* To Worship Him (in honour & reverence)
* To Obey Him

The fear of man will keep you from the fear of God - the fear of God will keep you from the fear of man (Proverbs 29:25)

"Holy fear is the key to God's sure foundation, unlocking the treasuries of salvation, wisdom, and knowledge ...
We cannot expect to be admitted into His presence with an attitude of disrespect ...
A person who fears God trembles at His Word and in His presence ...
To fear God is to believe God. To believe God is to obey Him ...
Holy fear gives God the place of glory, honour, reverence, thanksgiving, praise, and preeminence He deserves ..."

This needs to be meditated upon and to be understood....

Will definitely go back reading it few times until it sinks in.
