Fear God

Fear God

Believe it or not, victory over our fears comes with fear of the Lord.


A paradox of Scripture is that to conquer the fears of life, we must fear the Lord. A memorial to Lord Lawrence in Westminster Abbey says of him, "He feared man so little, because he feared God so much." Psalm 19:9 says, "The fear of the Lord is pure, enduring forever." So what is it to fear God and how does it chase away our other fears?
