A reverential fear of the Lord is a wholesome motive in our lives to want to please Him and it affects how we deal with others. We will make wiser decisions in life if we fear our heavenly Father. Fearing the Lord keeps us safe and gives us peace in Him. Just as a child fears the consequences from their parents if they do something wrong, as children of God we fear disappointing our father.
The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him,
and he delivers them.
Taste and see that the LORD is good;
blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
Fear the LORD, you his holy people,
for those who fear him lack nothing.
The lions may grow weak and hungry,
but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing.
