*#Benefits in the fear of the LORD*

(We are inspired, get inspired)

 _Proverbs  14:26 In the fear of the LORD is strong confidence: and his children shall have a place of refuge.  14:27 The fear of the LORD is a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death._

 *#Benefits in the fear of the LORD*

The fear of the LORD is a great treasure that keeps those who have it from evil. The fear of the LORD is a reverential fear for who he is. For He is a great God and deserves to be reverence in Awe. As we fear our earthly fathers, not to fall in their hands by going against their instructions and commandments. It is more dreadful to fall in the hands of the creator of all. 'For our God is a consuming fire.' (Heb. 12:29)

God is real and we must ascribe the honour that is due to him through the way we live. The fear of the LORD will keep us in a lasting relationship with Him. The voice of God thurders like fire. The children of Israel intreated that the words that God was speaking to them from the mountain should not be spoken to them anymore.( Heb. 12:19). They could not endure that which was commanded. The capacity of the fleshy nature is too low to bear spiritual things.

There is a dimension of grace in the new testament, which provided us with a spiritual birth to give us the capacity needed to understand the ways of God and follow it through  spiritual grace. But, we shouldn't take the fear of the LORD for granted because grace has appeared.

"See that ye refuse not him that speaketh. For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven: Whose voice then shook the earth: but now he hath promised, saying, Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven." (Hebrews12:25-26)

There is strong confidence in the fear of the LORD, the family of such a man that fears the LORD will dwell in safety. A man that fears God above all things, none shall makes him afraid, for his confidence is in God. The fear of the LORD is the escape route from the snares of death.  It is the spiritual sensor that God builds in man to sense danger afar off and avoid it. It is the fountain of life. It is not so for those who do not have the fear of God, they have no boundaries, their wall of defense is broken down and their lives is subject to reproach and shame. Ensure, that the fear of the LORD is in your heart always.

#God bless you
