Fear of God Devotional: How the Fear of God Works in the heart of a Christian

Orthodoxy can exist without the fear of God. Doctrinal purity, outward religion, Church attendance, family worship, prayers, and any other thing you can name, can exist without the fear of God. But, when a person begins to see the glory of God, the fear of God grows. And when it does, joy breaks out. The dull drab life in external religion becomes a life of happiness. This is one of the marvelous fruits of the fear of God.

David made it clear that the fear of God is the way of happiness, “Blessed is the man who fears the LORD, Who delights greatly in His commandments” (Psalm 112:1).
